AceShowbiz - Halle Berry is celebrating Mother's Day with a rare glimpse of her two children, Nahla and Maceo. On Sunday, May 10, the former Miss World contestant shared on her Instagram account a video of her kids while giving a shout-out to "all the mothers."
The short clip shows 12-year-old Nahla and 6-year-old Maceo sweetly embracing each other while sitting on the grass. Nahla is holding a flower in each of her hands and twirling them, possibly to impress her younger brother. The two kids are going barefoot while the camera captures them from the back.
Halle wrote in the accompanying caption, "#HappyMothersDay to all the mothers! I believe that eventually, we will all come to understand that love heals everything, and love is ALL there is." The 53-year-old actress went on gushing about her two children, "These two are everything to me!"
Halle welcomed Nahla, her first child, with then-partner Gabriel Aubry in March 2008. Their relationship ended less than two years later as they announced in April 2010 that they had broken up some months earlier.
The "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" star then moved on with French actor Olivier Martinez, whom she started dating in 2010 after they met while filming "Dark Tide" in South Africa. They got married in July 2013 and welcomed their son Maceo in October of the same year. The couple, however, announced they were divorcing in 2015 and it got finalized in December 2016.
Like many other mothers, Halle has experienced the struggle to homeschool her children during the coronavirus lockdown. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she shared that it's been tough to get her kids to focus on their schoolwork in the comfort of their own home.
"It's a nightmare for me. It's a nightmare," she admitted. "This is like a wash of a semester; they're really just not learning anything and it's hard. I have a six-year-old, and what I learned is that when six-year-olds see other six-year-olds do things, then they do things. Like, they sit and they eat because there's 25 other ones doing it. They stay at their desks and color because there's 25 other ones doing it."
She went on confiding, "At home, there's not 25 other ones doing it. So, to get them to focus and realise they're at home but yet they're at school, it's really been a challenge."
