Halle On Her Break-Up

| Filed under: Baby BlabberLove LineHalle Berry


Halle Berry opened up in the September issue of Vogue about her break-up with Gabriel Aubry, the father of her daughter Nahla.

She explains:

"Gabriel and I had long dealt with it. We were done. And we were on a good foot, and we had decided what we were going to do for Nahla, and we were able to say, 'This will pass.' We are back to how it was before: living apart, raising our daughter.

"You realize you are not meant to go the distance with everybody. We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that's why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together forever, all three of us. We are a family until we are not here anymore."

How sweet!

Halle says that she and Gabriel are "still friends" adding:

"We love each other very much, and we both share the love of our lives. And we are both 100 percent committed to being the best parents we can be. And while it was not a love connection for us, he was absolutely the right person to have this child with because she is going to have an amazing father. I'm not done with love, but I refuse to settle. I am a hopeless romantic. And I won't stop till I get it right."

As for being a mom in her 40s, Halle couldn't be happier about it. She says:

"I'm actually lucky and grateful that I waited until an age when I can really be present. I saw my mother in her early 20s having two little kids, and I don't think she enjoyed me at two the way that I enjoy my daughter.

"Nature has got it all wrong. When you are younger, it should be harder to get pregnant, and as you get older it should be easier. When you are so ready, you can't do it to save your life. And when you are 21, you are so not ready, but you are ripe as could be."

Sounds like Nahla has two great parents and that's what's important.

Plus we don't think Halle Berry will have any problem finding another man in her life!

    Next to Perez…..she is the most beautiful woman in the world.

  2. 2

    She used "amazing" twice, both times inappropriately. Few things are truly amazing. And no one is "meant to" anything–there's no grand plan or destiny. Woo-woo stuff. They fucked, made a kid, and there she is. She's one of BILLIONS of humans….oh, and nice cliche, "hopeless romantic." zzz…. I don't even understand "We were on a good foot." Is that like being on the good ship lollipop?

    As a 24 year old mother of 2 children I say you take that comment and shove it Ms. Berry. I enjoy my children very much. Nature didn't get it wrong dumbass. Our ancestors would live to be your age if they were lucky and so we are wired to have kids young. Not saying everyone should and def not saying teenagers should but what the hell does she know. If she had kids in her 20's then maybe she could make that statement. But you don't know what its like so stfu. Just cause your mom didn't enjoy it doesn't mean the rest of us in our 20's don't. So effing sick of celebs and their fucking interviews dishing out all of their 'wisdom' on the world like they fucking know everything. And plus you chop off like 20 extra freakin yrs to spend w your kids if you pop em' out at 40. No thanks, I'd do it all again in a heart beat. —Mom in her 20's who enjoys her 2 yr old very very much.

    She will have a hard time when he fathers another child, with someone else.

    Nahla can already walk? How time flies!

    Re: Mimi the Magnificent – get over yourself. It's HER OPINION.

    Re: Mimi the Magnificent – Shutup, I bet you and your family struggle like hell. Im curious as to what you do..Do you have a career? Anywho, It's kind of funny when people like you get all uppity about celeb comments. She was asked a question. She answered it the way she feels. There is no "right or wrong" its how she feels on the subject. she is not trying to shove her "wisdom" down anyones throat.

    Re: Mimi the Magnificent

    Dear Mimi,

    Ms. Berry was only commenting on her life experience. When one is older, they have a breadth of experiences and different focuses than a 20-year-old. A 20-year-old mother may see fit to spend her time commenting on celebrity websites and deciding that swearing is appropriate for this venue. Young parents can be wonderful, but 40-year-old parents have moved on from the selfishness and immaturity of youth and can fully devote their life to the betterment of their child. They have also had an opportunity to experience much of life and when they decide to procreate, they can do so without feeling like they are missing out on life's adventures. They have already experienced life's adventures and are truly ready to make a child their complete focus. Halle is right. Young people should enjoy being young and leave parenting up to those who have some knowledge and experience behind them. Your desire to spend too much time on this website commenting and vulgarity in your post only gives Ms. Barry's comment teeth.

    Re: Mimi the Magnificent

    And you're anybody to preach either?

    Re: NookiesWA – Well said. I agree with you completely. As the saying goes, "The longer you wait for something, the more you appreciate it." I can't fathom why anyone would plan to have kids in their early 20s. Most people at that age are still in school or don't have a career yet, which leads to financial problems. Halle's life seems perfect. She already had the successful career and now she has lots of money and time to spend with her daughter.

    Lust is not love. Love is built from the kind of trust, respect and admiration she seems to have established with Aubry. She will continue to chase her tail.

    3 time loser at relationships, she needs to reevaluate who she picks to hook up with or stop being a bitch or both

  13. 13

    I don't think many women can be hopeless romantics and find a man. Most men don't know what romance is at all. I wish us all luck though! :)

    Anyone who names themself "Mimi the Magnificent" - enough said. Classless

  15. 15

    I don't think enjoying your child has anything to do with your age so much as the money Halle Berry has to sustain a certain type of lifestyle in which she is not in charge of the "dirty work" that it involves to raise a child. We all wish we could play in the park and shop to heart's content..without the REALITY of going to a 9 to 5 job and doing laundry and grocery shopping, etc.
    I'm sure this was another quote taken out of context, but come on. I don't think her "enjoying her daughter" has to do with her age.

  16. 16

    I don't agree with the way Mimi stated her comment, but I do understand where she is coming from. I had all of my children in my twenties: my first at 22, my second at 27 and my third at 28. Once you have children, they become your focus, no matter what age you are. At least that has been my personal experience. I couldn't imagine having a child at the age of 40. Sure, I'd be more financially stable and have had more life experience, but I'd rather experience life with my children now rather than later because raising my children IS my life's adventure! I want to be able to meet my grandchildren and still have enough energy to play with them and take them on trips just like my grandparents did for me. It all boils down to personal choice. Ms. Berry chose to wait, I didn't. Why should either of us be "wrong" about our decisions?

  17. 17

    Re: Mimi the Magnificent – I agree with you. I waited and there are some downsides, like grandparents…some are no longer with us. This notion that you are increasingly better as a parent as you age is nonsense! You may have more money but you are also more tired! You are meant to have children in your 20's.

    Re: aface1998 – Well said. What's right for one may not be right for another. To each his own.

    I love Halle and I wish her nothing but the best. I hope she does find love. I wish she and Gab could've worked things out….

  20. 20

    Halle said she doesn't want to "settle" - She was lucky to be with Gabriel - What a lightweight! She needs to get real !

  21. 21

    She is a moron. That statement was very insulting to her mother. Her mother, in her 20's with 2 children, was being beaten by her low life husband, who then left them to fend for themselves. She was pushing 40, wanted a baby, has a ton of money, found the hottest guy she could, and got pregnant. End of story.
