Halle Berry welcomed both daughter Nahla, 11, and son Maceo, 5, after turning 40 and raved about the experience.
“You’re so much more ready to be a parent after 40 than when you’re 20,” the actress, 52, toldUs Weeklyexclusively at the recentJohn Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellumworld premiere. “You know yourself better. You’ve done a lot of things for yourself, selfishly. When you wait later in life, you can really put your kids forward I think in a more meaningful way.”
Her advice for moms considering starting a family later in life? “Do it,” she toldUs. “Just do it.”
TheX-Menstar welcomed her daughter with then-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry in 2008, when she was 41. Nahla became a bit sister when Maceo arrived in 2013 with Berry’s ex-husband Oliver Martinez. Berry was 47.
