“I really believe I’ve found my person. My son Maceo on his own did this little commitment ceremony for us in the back seat of the car. I think he finally sees me happy, and it’s infectious. It was his way of saying, ‘This is good. This makes me happy,’
“It was a very real moment for all of us,” says the Catwoman actress. “I teared up, Van was fighting back tears. Even Maceo knew he’d said something poignant. I have two children. Van has a son. As a mom living in this modern, blended family, all I care about is that my kids are okay with my decisions.”
Halle Berry has a son Maceo who is 8-year-old with her ex-husband Olivier Martinez and a 13-year-old daughter Nahla with her ex-Gabriel Aubry.
“I have this new amazing love in my life,” Berry said. “Because of COVID, we spent four months talking on the phone. We were forced to let only our brains connect and discover if we had a connection before our bodies decided to get involved. I’d never done it this way. I fell in love with his mind, his conversation.”
The actress gave her two cents about relationships and also about being “stuck in relationships”
“We want to make it work; we want to fix it. Then we often jump into a new relationship to heal from the old one, and we’re just rebounding and never taking the time to grow and take care of ourselves first,” she explains.
Halle Berry and Van Hunt made their relationship official in September of 2020. The couple stated that they had been seeing each other for a couple of months before going public.
“I just feel fulfilled. I feel happy in my life romantically, as a mother, as an artist,” she said of her relation with Van Hunt. “I’m a much better mother in this circumstance than I would have been having I stayed in a romantic relationship that didn’t serve me and didn’t make me feel the way I need to feel like a woman.” I’m reminded that we always have to take care of ourselves first because I can’t be a good mother for my children if I’m not fundamentally happy and feeling good about myself,” she added.
