“Every night, we do our prayers,” the 46-year-old star says of Nahla. “We pray to God, so sweet. She says, ‘God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister.’ And I say, ‘I can do one of those things, I know for sure. The other one, we’ve got to keep praying on.’ What do you say to her when she wants that and can’t understand why God’s taken so long?”
Although Halle doesn’t hint on whether or not she plans to have more children, she admits how grateful she is to have had her daughter at a later stage in life.
“I’m a much better mother at 46 — or 41, when I had her — than if I were like 21 or 25,” she explains. “I mean I was just a little baby just trying to figure it out — trying to figure out who I was, let alone having the responsibility of trying to help another little soul develop and grow. I’m so glad I waited.”
Halle continues to say that although she realizes her career choice comes with fame and the invasion of the paparazzi, she feels her daughter shouldn’t have to pap the price
“She’s just a little kid, and I just want her to be a little kid, and have normalcy and be like everybody else,” Halle reveals. “As her mom, that’s my job — to provide her with that, you know? It’s frustrating when you feel like you can’t.”
