April 2 (UPI) -- Halle Berry opened up about life with her two children during an interview with Extra.

The 47-year-old actress gave birth to her second child, Maceo, only five months ago, and not only is she already promoting her next movie, Frankie and Alice, and filming her first television series, Extant, but she also "feels great" about it all.

"I just feel great because I have another baby. I never thought that at my stage in life another baby -- and a baby boy -- was coming to me, so yeah, I'm blessed," the Oscar winner told Extra's Renee Bargh.

Berry, who already has her old body back, went on to say that she owed it all to breastfeeding.

"Every mother should breastfeed," she said. "It's the quickest way to shed the initial weight and then you have to eat right."

As for how she remains close to her 5-year-old daughter Nahla, and to baby Maceo, Berry explained she brings them on set with her.

"What I’m learning to do, trying to right now, is find the balance… my baby is always with me on set," she said. "I bring my daughter after school. I have a nursery there, a playroom for her, so I try to make it as nice as I can for them to spend time with them, see them."

Frankie and Alice hits theaters Friday.
