♥ Her father is a French Canadian model
♥ Nahla speaks both English and French

♥ Her mother married fellow actor Oliver Martinez last year and she became a big sister in October
♥ Halle joined forces with fellow celebrity mom Jennifer Garner in 2013 to introduce new laws in California aimed at protecting children from the ever present paparazzi.
“We’re moms here who are just trying to protect our children. These are little innocent children who didn’t ask to be celebrities. They didn’t ask to be thrown into this game and they don’t have the wherewithal to process what’s happening. We don’t have a law in place to protect them from this.” – Halle on protecting her daughter from the paparazzi.
“Being a mom does that for me. It sort of puts things into perspective, and it’s about real life, and life is about people, what we give, what we take, what we share. I do what I love to do and being a mom has come really naturally. It’s all about finding a way to juggle what I love and what comes naturally to me.” – Halle on motherhood.
“When there’s a child involved, it’s a relief when you can resolve things in a good way. Our issues were never about fighting for her. We both know a child needs both her parents. But what I want to say about it is sometimes, as a couple, you reach an impasse. We need a court and a judge to help us work out some of the delicate issues, and I’m so happy we’ve arrived at that place – because for her sake, this is the best way. We both love her more than life.” – Halle on knowing Nahla needs both of her parents.
“The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla. Gabriel fully believes that a consistent and balanced living situation and two loving parents are crucial for their child even if Ms. Berry feels otherwise. He will always defend his rights as a father and will always consider Nahla’s best interest. Halle’s continuing allegations in the press are untrue and irresponsible.” – Gabriel‘s rep on maintaining a stable envirment for Gabe’s daughter.
