Halle Berry Talks About Motherhood to Harper's Bazaar

Halle Berry Talks About Motherhood to Harper's Bazaar

Hollywood glamour girl Halle Berry seems to have softened since becoming a mom. And we're not talking about her banging postpartum bod that she revealed just months after her daughter, Nahla Aubrey, was born. The Oscar-winning actress appears to be a bit more content with her life. She recently talked motherhood and family to Harper's Bazaar. Here are the highlights:

On her postpartum bod: Having a baby takes so much from you. It's the most glorious thing you'll ever do, but the aftermath is not so glorious! So now I'm having to exercise, eat a little bit differently, take a lot more vitamins.

On Nahla being biracial: Nahla will grow up in a completely different America. Obama is someone who's more like her than not, who shares her history. Hopefully she'll grow up in a world where it'll be easier than I had it. I had a rough time. I was accused of stuffing the ballot box for my high school prom-queen election because they couldn't believe the only black girl in the school won.

On being fulfilled by family: I used to work a lot because I had nothing better to do. What I've learned, especially by having a baby, is that you can't bring that stuff home anymore. For example, I was alone filming Monster's Ball. I was married to someone else, and he wasn't really around much. Thank God that was only a 20-day shoot.

To see the rest of what Halle had to say,


On Nahla's beauty: Let her be sweet because I believe beauty is as beauty does. My hope is that she is sweet and kind because no matter how beautiful you are, ugly ain't cute.

On having more children: Yes. My pregnancy was amazing. I was happy that whole time, I felt good, I had energy, I was like Superwoman. I wish I could feel like that for the rest of my life, that's how fantastic it was.
