She shares her 13-year-old daughter Nahla Ariela Aubry with model Gabriel Aubry and her son Maceo Robert Martinez, 7, from her marriage to French actor Olivier Martinez.

What did Will Smith say about Halle Berry and Misty Copeland?
In a revealing interview with GQ for the November 2021 issue, Will Smith caused a stir after admitting that Halle Berry and Misty Copeland were his fantastic crushes.
While discussing his unconventional relationship with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, he admitted that the couple enjoyed an open marriage that was not a “prison.”
The Fresh Prince star then admitted that he dreamed of dating several famous women at the same time as a teenager.
Will explained, “The idea of traveling with 20 women that I loved and took care of and all that seemed like a really good idea.”
And some of the stars that made its list were actress Halle Berry and ballerina Misty Copeland.
Artist Gettin ‘Jiggy With It considered reaching out to the couple as he felt ashamed of fantasizing about a harem due to his “Christian upbringing” leading him to believe his “thoughts were sins”.
He finally enlisted the help of privacy coach Michaela Boehm – and now he’s thinking very differently.
He said: “It was OK to think Halle is okay. It doesn’t make me a bad person that I’m married and I think Halle is beautiful.”
Will then “played a little” with the therapist and realized that his fantasy might not be as big as he had imagined.
“I was like, ‘It would be horrible. It would be awful. “I was like, ‘Can you imagine how miserable this is?’” He said.
