Halle Berry was snapped picking up her daughter Nahla from school yesterday in Los Angeles. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen little Nahla out and about — and my how she has grown!
“The big screen bombshell picked her adorable little girl up from school Tuesday, proudly showing off Nahla’s end of the year project, revealing all of the 4-year-old’s favorite things and wishes,” celebrity watching blog Radar states.
Halle is back in the states with her fiance, fellow actor Olivier Martinez, after spending a lengthy amount of time in his native France. It has been reported that Berry wants to move to Paris with Martinez and her daughter. This move is currently being contested in her custody battle with Nahla’s father, Gabriel Aubrey. Hopefully, the parents will be able to work out their differences, given the impact a positive father figure’s proximity can have on a child’s welfare.
“Fathers are far more than just ‘second adults’ in the home,” sociologist Dr. David Popenoe is quoted as saying in a report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. ”Involved fathers bring positive benefits to their children that no other person is as likely to bring.”
If Nahla does move to Paris with Berry and Olivier? As TMZ notes, “If Halle is allowed to move, it’s almost certain Gabriel would get visitation rights, but that’s easier said than done when Nahla is 5,600 miles away.”
Despite this controversy, in this series of snap shots, mother and daughter look very happy as the cute four-year-old bops along holding the hand of her glamorous mom.
Berry has recently switched back to the curly bob she hasn’t been seen in for some time, looking as chic as ever in a long-sleeved t-shirt dress. Toned legs are always in fashion.
