Just five months after pushing out a healthy baby actress Halle Berry is in full promo mode, pushing her new film, ‘Frankie and Alice‘. At the tender age of 47, Halle is experiencing motherhood for the second time. Her 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, is five, while her new son, Maceo, is five months.
The actress beams during an Extra TV interview:
I just feel great because I have another baby. I never thought that at my stage in life another baby — and a baby boy — was coming to me, so yeah, I’m blessed.
Crediting her weight loss to a natural method, she gives insight on why she’s an advocate for breastfeeding:
Every mother should breastfeed. It’s the quickest way to shed the initial weight and then you have to eat right.
Halle explained how she juggles her career with family as she shoots the new TV series “Extant.”
What I’m learning to do, trying to right now, is find the balance… my baby is always with me on set. I bring my daughter after school. I have a nursery there, a playroom for her, so I try to make it as nice as I can for them to spend time with them, see them.
The mom said Nahla enjoys time with her little brother, and she’s very serious about her big-sister role.
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.
As for her role in the psychological drama “Frankie and Alice,” Halle is baffled about playing this type of role saying,
If someone had told me that we’re going to do a movie about a black woman [with multiple personalities] who has a white racist living inside her, and a little child who’s a genius living inside her, I would have thought that’s just a made-up story, but because it was real, that gave it a gravitas that to me was, ‘Wow, this is real, people should know about this.’
“Frankie and Alice” is in theaters Friday.”
