Halle Berry Talks Balancing Motherhood And Work
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Halley Berry gave birth to her son Maceo just five months ago and has already lost the baby weight and has her social life back on track. How has Berry gotten back in shape so quickly? She says it is due to breastfeeding.
“Every mother should breastfeed,” she said of her post-pregnancy weight loss. “It’s the quickest way to shed the initial weight, and then you have to eat right.”
Although Berry said that she is happy with her weight loss, she also claimed that it was never a priority and that she is just happy to have another child to love and care for.
“I just feel great because I have another baby,” Berry, 47, continued. “I never thought that at my stage in life another baby — and a baby boy — was coming to me, so yeah, I’m blessed.”
Berry gave birth to her son in October of 2013 at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. Baby Maceo is Berry’s second child. She also has a daughter named Nahla from her previous relationship with ex Gabriel Aubrey.
Berry said that Nahla is very caring towards her baby brother and that she is just as enamored with him as the rest of the family.
“She’s very serious about her big sister role,” Berry revealed. “It’s like one of her doll babies came alive. She gets to take care of him, feed him, change his diapers, play with him, dress him up in different clothes like five times a day because she can, so she loves it.”
Berry has not let motherhood slow down her career and her newest film, Frankie and Alice, will hit theaters on April 4. Berry has found a way to balance her career and family and even takes her children with her to the set on occasion.
She has a nursery and playroom on the set to entertain her children while she is working and spends time with them in between takes and on her breaks.
