Nahla Ariela, Halle Berry’s daughter, is already 15 years old! Thursday, the 56-year-old actress posted three photos of her daughter along with a sweet birthday message on Instagram. The Moonfall actress wore a shirt that said, “My daughter Nahla is one of the best things the world has given me.” “She is the sun that doesn’t go down and the moon that doesn’t go away! Today is her 15th birthday, so please join me in wishing her well. I love you sweet angel”.
The first picture in the birthday tribute was a black-and-white picture of Nahla and Halle when they were young and laughing together. The second picture showed the teen’s back as she lay in a hammock and looked out at the clear water. In jean shorts and a green t-shirt, she looked like she was ready for summer. In the last picture, Nahla was sitting on a white outdoor couch while wearing a big grey flannel. She grabbed the visor of her beige newsboy cap and put it over her face.
Some of Halle’s famous friends wrote comments under the post to wish Nahla a happy birthday as well. The actress Viola Davis wrote, “Happy birthday, beautiful Nahla!! Mario Lopez, an actor and TV host, wrote “HBD Nahla!” with three red hearts. Julianne Moore also wished Lopez a happy birthday. The actress said, “Happy birthday, Nahla!”
The last time Nahla was on her mother’s Instagram feed was on her 14th birthday, so Halle’s picture of Nahla is a rare one. At the time, the Golden Globe winner posted a picture of herself and her daughter walking on the beach at sunset and wrote, “4 years ago, I was blessed to give birth to a ‘Earth Angel,’ and I named her Nahla Ariela! Your presence makes me feel small and happy at the same time!”
Halle’s ex, Gabriel Aubry, is also the father of Nahla. She also has a 9-year-old son with her ex-husband, Olivier Martinez, whose name is Maceo Robert Martinez. From 2013 to 2016, they were married.
Maceo and her current boyfriend, Van Hunt, are very close. They have been together since 2020. In January 2022, Halle told AARP that her son Maceo did a small commitment ceremony for her and her husband in the back seat of their car. “I think he finally sees how happy I am, and that makes him happy too. He was telling her, “This is good.” I like this. I’m glad about this.”
A few months earlier, she had said that she thinks Van, who is 53, makes her a “better” parent. “I wish I had met him sooner so I could have loved him for longer. I just feel fulfilled. I’m happy with my life as a mother, a lover, and an artist. She told Women’s Health in November 2021, “I’m a much better mother now than I would have been if I had stayed in a relationship that didn’t serve me and didn’t make me feel the way I need to feel as a woman.”
