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