Hollywood superstar Halle Berry hated receiving movie scripts for maternal roles prior to the birth of her daughter, because her lack of children left her heartbroken.
The Oscar-winning actress–who, at 41 years old, gave birth to a baby girl on March 16 with model Gabriel Aubry–feared she would never have her own offspring, and even considered adoption.
And the Monster’s Ball star states that offers for matriarchal movie parts made her realize having her own tot held higher importance than anything else–even her hugely successful Hollywood career.
She said, “Being a mother is something I yearned for my whole adult life. Every time I was offered a script where the character description was ‘mother,’ my heart was quietly aching.
“I don’t want to come over as some ‘pity me’ person, because I’m privileged to enjoy success and everything that comes with that. Yet the one thing I wanted more than anything–to be a mother–always eluded me.”
The stunning actress, who met 32-year-old Aubry on a fashion shoot for a Versace campaign, loves the idea of becoming a mother so much that she is planning to have her second child right away.
She added, “There’s just one baby at the moment, but we’re hoping straight after this one to do it again.”
