Halle Berry’s 8-year-old son Maceo couldn’t be happier that she’s found her person in boyfriend Van Hunt. In the February/March 2022 cover story for AARP The Magazine, Berry says “for the first time in my life, everything is firing on all cylinders” in her personal and professional life.
“I really believe I’ve found my person. My son Maceo on his own did this little commitment ceremony for us in the back seat of the car. I think he finally sees me happy, and it’s infectious. It was his way of saying, ‘This is good. This makes me happy,'” Berry, 55, said.
Berry, who shares son Maceo, with ex-husband Olivier Martinez said of the intimate family moment, “It was a very real moment for all of us. I teared up, Van was fighting back tears. Even Maceo knew he’d said something poignant. I have two children. Van has a son. As a mom living this modern, blended family, all I care about is that my kids are okay with my decisions.”
“I have this new amazing love in my life,” Berry said of Hunt. “Because of COVID, we spent four months talking on the phone. We were forced to let only our brains connect and discover if we had a connection before our bodies decided to get involved. I’d never done it this way. I fell in love with his mind, his conversation.” The couple went official with their relationship in September 2020,
The actress also told AARP about how she felt “stuck in relationships” in the past. “We want to make it work; we want to fix it. Then we often jump into a new relationship to heal from the old one, and we’re just rebounding and never taking the time to grow and take care of ourselves first,” she explained.
Berry will next be seen in the sci-fi/action flick, Moonfall, alongside Patrick Wilson out February 4. Watch the trailer below:
