Halle Berry isn’t just an on screen superhero, but an amazing real life mom to her two children, daughter Nahla, who was raised away from the spotlight and the public eye, and son Maceo Martinez.
The Monster’s Ball star, who is the first ever black woman to earn an Academy Award for best actress, was married three times. From 1993 to 1997, she was married to MBL player David Justice, and then, from 2001 to 2005, she was married to singer-songwriter Eric Benét. But it wasn’t until two failed marriages that she met the father of her future daughter. Berry met handsome Canadian model, Gabriel Aubrey, at a 2005 Versace photoshoot. The two fell for one another and welcomed daughter Nahla in 2008.
Sadly, the couple split in 2010, and the two were left fighting over Nahla whom Berry wanted to move to France but was forbidden to do so by the courts. Over the years, the two have been involved in a number of disputes over their parenting styles.
One time, Berry accused Aubrey of dying Nahla’s hair, but he denied the accusations. Berry then took him to court and after analyzing the girl’s hair, it was determined that it was indeed dyed.
Today, Nahla is 15 and she’s bigger sister to Berry’s son whom she had with Olivier Martinez, her co-star from Dark Tide.
However, the fact that Nahla turned 15 surprised many, probably because of the fact that the world hasn’t seen much of her throughout the years.
For the occasion, Berry shared photos of her daughter. One of them is a framed black and white image on which the mother-daughter duo share a laught, and the second captures Nahla from the back, while she lies on a netted hammock overlooking the water. On the third photo Belly shared, Nahla is sitting on an outdoor couch while her face is covered with a brown, beret-styled cap.
“One of the greatest gifts the universe has given me is my daughter, Nahla. She is the sun that never fades and the moon that never wanes! Please join me in wishing her a happy 15th Birthday today! I love you sweet angel,” the proud mom wrote.
“Is that ‘15th a typo? That human cannot be 15 already,” one fan wrote.
Nahla’s dad also shared a sweet message for his daughter’s birthday. “Happy Birthday my beautiful little Nahla. Nothing brings more joy than seeing you grow into the amazing little woman that you are.”
One thing about Nahla that everyone agrees on is that she is a spitting image of her dad. A lot of people commented on the physical likeness between the father and the daughter, writing, “that baby looks like her daddy,” and “she has her dad’s face.”
