Walking across the stage in a tight black dress, Halle Berry quickly and definitely put the kibosh on persistent pregnancy rumors during a Thursday appearance on The Jay Leno Show. “I was getting a complex,” the 43-year-old actress admits. “I was like, ‘I’ve got to stop with the burgers or something!’”
Having “put to bed” any and all whispers about a baby-on-the-way, Halle turned to the “fantastic” baby she already has — 18-month-old Nahla Ariela.
She proceeded to tell a “funny” new mom story that only a handful of mothers in the world could possibly relate to. Having graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar this spring, Halle was at the grocery store with Nahla when her daughter recognized mom’s image on the magazine.
“I’ve got on my sunglasses and I’m in the market. I’m putting all my groceries on the belt, and she’s over my shoulder and I hear her say ‘Mama, Mama,’” Halle recalls. “I knew, ‘Ooh, she saw that cover, that’s cute.’”
A shopper in line behind them then began to coo alongside Nahla, before correcting baby girl. “I heard the woman say, ‘Oh no honey, that’s not your mama, that’s Halle Berry,’” Halle explained. “And I’m like, okay, that’s kind of funny.” Nahla, however, refused to back down on what she already knew to be true!
“Nahla says, ‘Mama! Mama!’ And the lady gets, like, indignant about it, [and said], ‘No, honey, that’s not your mama. That’s Halle Berry.’ And I couldn’t take it any longer so I whipped off my glasses and turned around and I was like, ‘No, I am her mother and I am Halle Berry and she knows what she’s talking about!’ It was one of those great mom moments.”
Nahla is Halle’s daughter with partner Gabriel Aubry.
