Halle Berry has vowed to never marry again. The mom of 17-month-old Nahla Aubry would much rather focus her energy on motherhood rather than on any future marriage plans.
“I’m much clearer about what a relationship is, which is why I will never marry again. Gabriel and I have a great partnership and a lovely daughter. But I once was stupid enough to say, in a previous relationship, ‘I’m going to be with this person for ever,’ and realised, as I grew, that I don’t know if for ever is possible,” the actress explained recently to You Magazine.
She added, “Gabriel and I don’t look at our relationship in terms of for ever, we look at it as right here today. And today means being the best people we can be, the best parents we can be. It’s wonderful, but neither one of us feels the need to attach ourselves to each other for life – because it may not be that.”
Though her future with Gabriel is uncertain, Halle, 42, would like have more children with him.
“I’m certainly open to having another, so I hope so. Motherhood will always be my priority now, especially because I had a child for the first time at 41. My priority had been myself for a long, long time, but now it will always be Nahla. You think you know what love is – until you have a child and discover that unconditional mother love.”
