Halle Berry steals hearts with photo of son in helmet and 'karma' T-shirt
The American actress is also a mother to two little ones, and very private about her private life. So far, she has decided to mostly keep her children out of the spotlight, in order to give them a sense of normalcy growing up.
Halle Berry has a 10-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry, with ex-partner Gabriel Aubry, and a 4-year-old son, Maceo Robert Martinez, with ex-husband Olivier Martinez. And although much isn't known about them, she sometimes offers glimpses into their lives.
She recently decided to share a photo of Maceo, but as usual made sure his face was mostly hidden.
In the image, Maceo was wearing a cycling helmet and a t-shirt that reads "Karma made me do it."
Maceo was looking down, leaving his face in shadow, and was holding onto his bicycle that has a lime green frame and a pink bell. He also appeared to be wearing a pair of arm pads to protect his elbows in case of a fall.
"And KARMA never forgets an address! Happy Sunday," Berry wrote in the caption.
In 4 days, the post already had over 20,000 likes.
Another image of the little boy showed his face from the side as he sat on a boat while the family vacationed in Bora Bora.
"When your not so little boy takes YOU for a ride!" Berry said.
Even though the face of the little boy was not on full display, it was more than what people had seen of him throughout the years.
More often than not, she shares only photos that are taken from behind her children, or with them turning their face away from the camera.
Berry is not the only celebrity who avoids showing her children's faces to protect them, but it's something that fans aren't exactly partial to.
Back in October 2016, a fan called her out for always hiding her children's faces, writing: "“What’s with the hiding of the faces? They’re beautiful children why not show them off?”
It wasn't the first time this same person had asked the question on one of Berry's photos, so the actress decided to respond.
“I’ve noticed you have said this several times now so let me be clear — I’m not at all ashamed of [my] children. I try to find creative ways to incorporate them into my feed because they are the biggest part of my life, but I also work very hard to keep their identities as private as I can considering they are only children,” she wrote.
“It’s my belief, and I’m not criticizing others who have different beliefs, that it’s my job as their mother to protect their privacy as best I can,” Berry continued.
“When they grow and they’re of age and they want [to] share their images on the internet, that will be for them to decide, not me. Feel me? Have a beautiful day.”
