Halle Berry: I'm so glad I waited to have Nahla

Halle Berry chose to wait a while to become a mother, and she told Wendy Williams Thursday that it was a smart choice.

Berry welcomed daughter Nahla, whom she had with ex Gabriel Aubrey, in 2008, just ahead of turning 42. Waiting that long, she said, made her a better parent.

"I'm a much better mother at 46 ... than if I were like, 21 or 25," she said. At that age, "I was just a little baby just trying to figure it out, trying to figure out who I was, let alone having the responsibility of trying to help another little soul develop and grow. I'm so glad I waited."

But Nahla's hoping her mom still wants more kids - so badly, in fact, that she requests it every day.

"Every night, we do our prayers, we pray to God, so sweet, and she says, 'God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister,'" the "Cloud Atlas" actress recalled. "And I say, 'I can do one of those things, I know for sure. The other one, we're going to have to keep praying on.' Because what do you say to her when she wants that, and can't understand why God's taking so long?"

    That's great for her, but women should know that by that age the chances of them conceiving easily and having a successful pregnancy and healthy baby are very low, and in fact start declining rapidly after 30. Most women her age would have needed some medical intervention though I'm sure even if she did she probably wouldn't admit it, though I could be wrong I haven't looked into her personal story.

    Why, so she could torture the kids father, ultimately scarring the kid? She's certainly helping her soul grow, a complex. Go oldie.

      yeah, what a joke. She should have waited even longer like maybe 20 years ? the poor little girl has to suffer between parents fighting over her. That's no fun at all.

  11. whatever

    Really ? You had to wait until you were as old as a grandmother to have a child ? What a pity and what does it say about your level of maturity, Halle ?

      You are unkind. It says that she was smart enough to wait and not jump and have kids according to what others think. That she wanted to give a child all it deserves, and knew waiting was right for her. Hopefully, you don't have kids, I would hate to think that you are sharng your narrow view of the world with an impressionable mind.

      Don't hate her because she's beautiful and because YOU were probably a grandmother at age 30.

    I think she is older than 46. Ladies usually fib about their age. I bet she is 55 or so.

    It's absolutely ridiculous to expect to have a second child at 46. She was seriously pushing it at 42, I think she needs to settle for just one.

      Funny thing is....her current guy is a womanizer. i am guessing in two years, they will be split so having another kid would complicate that relationship even more. She does not need two exes fighting over her money and the kids they fathered with her. She has way more money than Martinez. I smell a perpetual support going out of her estate...one for Aubry and the other, the current guy.

    She should have waited longer. People as stupid as her should not be allowed to procreate.

    • People who hate because of race have low intelligence

      You say she is stupid, but do you know he?. Have you ever been to dinner with her or her family? I think not.

      No i have not. And i can pretty much guarantee you haven't either. There-in you cannot claim to know her as intelligent. What i do have to go on in that regard is i have seen her do a number of interviews. And in each and every one she has come across as a moron. Much like you are right now.
