"Laughter Helps A Lot Right Now!"

Halle Berry wants everyone to calm down and laugh a little. The celebrity mom recently responded to critics who took issue with her son, Maceo Martinez, walking around the house while wearing high heels.


The video of Maceo walking in heels showed the youngster heading towards the stairs while gliding in cream colored knee-high boots. Maceo did not turn around to his mom who walked behind him while filming. The youngster, instead, remained focused on the goal of getting up the stairs in heels.

“He still walks better then I do in heels,” one of Halle’s fans said after watching the video clip. “Last time I wore heels, I looked like I was crip walking,” the social media follower wrote.

Many praised Maceo for his ability to effortlessly glide through the house while wearing heels. Some, however, had a problem with the footage because Maceo, a boy, was wearing women’s shoes. Halle Berry had a response for such critics.

“Harmless fun,” the celebrity mom said. “It’s tight on these kids right now,” she added. “Let’s have a laugh and some compassion yawl!”

Berry went on to correct those who thought Maceo was her daughter, Nahla Aubry. “Well, it’s a he,” she said. “And he is having a ball. Tryna cope the best he can. Laughter helps a lot right now!”


Governor Gavin Newsom of California has ordered the entire state to stay home because of the coronavirus outbreak. The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) closed its schools last Monday (March 16) and does not plan to reopen them until at least May 1, 2020.

Many celebrities are using this time of quarantine to spread a bit of humor online to their fans who are also under “Shelter In Place” orders. Halle Berry’s video of her son walking in heels received more than 450,000 views in two days. Stay tuned for more celebrity mom news!
