When it comes to being a celebrity, actress Halle Berry feels she has a responsibility to protect her children from a life that they didn’t necessarily choose. When she became an actress and started working in the entertainment industry, she did so willingly at a specific age. Berry realizes that her children, however, did not sign up for that same fate.
Because of this, she attempts to shield her children from the paparazzi and doesn’t typically share pictures of their faces on social media.
It seems she recently had, at least a momentary, change of heart when she posted a photo of her son, Maceo, with part of his face showing when she shared a gorgeous picture of his side profile.
The actress was on vacation with her family in Bora Bora and snapped the sweet picture of her handsome son, whom she shares with ex-husband and actor Olivia Martinez.
Maceo is 4 years old and the youngest of Berry’s two children. She also has a daughter named Nahla, a product of a relationship with her former partner Gabriel Aubrey, who is 10 years old. In typical Berry fashion, while on vacation, she shared a picture of the back of her daughter’s head, instead of her face.
While the paparazzi have snapped some pictures of her children and their faces are technically searchable via the internet, Berry has consistently done all she can to hide them from the onslaught of cameras and questions.
Berry does a very good job of protecting her children from the limelight in a way that allows them to enjoy a bit of normalcy.
Now, if they decide to become models or actors when they grow up, they’ll make that decision themselves and enter into the spotlight on their own accord, not just because their parents happen to be very famous.
