Halle Berry Shares the Naughty Antics Her Elf on the Shelf Got Up to This Year

Need some last-minute inspiration for your Elf on the Shelf's final day of shenanigans? Halle Berry has you covered. On Friday, Dec. 23, the Oscar winner shared a few of her Elf family's best capers from 2022, including a rather daring stove move that you might not want to try at home.

Berry shared a carousel of photos on her Instagram featuring her family's assortment of elves getting up to no good. In the first pic, one elf is sitting in a pot on the stove that's filled to the brim with marshmallows. Unfortunately for the elf, the stove appears to be on.

From there, the elves adhere to fire-safety rules by lounging on Berry's sleepy dog's back and surrounding themselves with green peas. The green-pea photo comes with a fun pun, as well. "Oops, we pea'd ourselves," the elves' message reads. Berry captioned her post, "naughty again this year!"

As a mom of two, Berry knows how to be creative during the holidays. The "Moonfall" actor shares 9-year-old Maceo Robert Martinez with her ex-husband Olivier Martinez and 14-year-old Nahla Ariela Aubry with her ex Gabriel Aubry. Berry is currently in a long-term relationship with musician Van Hunt, who has a son named Drake from a previous relationship.

In a December 2021 interview with Women's Health, Berry opened up about how being in the right relationship has only helped her as a parent. "I just feel fulfilled," she explained. "I feel happy in my life romantically, as a mother, as an artist. I'm a much better mother in this circumstance than I would have been had I stayed in a romantic relationship that didn't serve me and didn't make me feel the way I need to feel as a woman."

She continued, "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."
