Experts say that biologically, 20 is the best age to get pregnant and carry a child to term. But many women don’t become moms until later in life. Halle Berry had her first child when she was 41, and she thinks she is a better mother now than she would have been when she was 20. Let’s look at the actress’s story, including how she became a mom after turning 40 and how having kids changed her priorities.
Halle Berry has worked hard and been determined to build a successful career. She has been in popular movies like X-Men, Catwoman, and John Wick: Chapter three, and she won an Oscar for her role in Monster’s Ball. Fans have always been interested in both her work and her personal life. She has been in many relationships with Hollywood stars and has been divorced three times.
She was married to David Justice at first, and they were together from 1992 to 1997. Eric Benét was her second husband, but they broke up in 2005. The actress then dated Gabriel Aubry. She had a daughter with him, Nahla Ariela, but they broke up in 2010. Berry said «yes» for the fourth time in 2013 when she married Olivier Martinez. They had a son, Maceo Robert, and she became a mother for the second time at age forty seven The couple split up in 2016.
Halle is overjoyed to be the mother of two lovely children despite the fact that she has been married and divorced several times. She is of the opinion that becoming a mother is the most rewarding work in the whole world. She raises her children to always be themselves and «to march to the beat of their own drum» by reading parenting literature and modeling this behavior for them.
Although she had no clue it was possible at her age, the actress stated that she had fun both times she was pregnant: «Had I begun earlier, I definitely would have had five children.» Halle believes she was more equipped to be a mother at forty one than she would have been if she had had her first kid at twenty
She wasn’t interested in having kids or becoming a mother at the age of thirty, and was instead focused on her career. But eventually she understood something was missing. Children were the missing element for her since she wanted something more than simply her daily trips to the set.
Holly’s life has changed in many ways since she became a mother. She said that, «Children change your priorities, and now I have a better reason to be here. Even though I enjoy acting, I would give up everything, for example, to spend time with my daughter, because my children are «the center and love of my life.»
