On a recent vacation, Halle Berry shared a rare photo of her 4-year-old son Maceo-Robert, a decision that the actress struggled with since being in the limelight can sometimes have its drawbacks.
Berry, who divorced Maceo’s dad Olivier Martinez in 2013, opened up to Extra, about her decision to finally share Maceo with the world on social media while vacationing in Bora Bora.
“That was a struggle,” Berry told Extra about her decision to show Maceo-Robert’s face on Instagram. “I really don’t like to show my kids very much … but I do realize … my people are, like, solid for me and me for them and I feel like I want to include them.”
Berry, mom of two to Maceo and 10-year-old Nahla Ariela, admits it wasn’t an easy decision to show off her son.
“But it’s a fine line because I don’t want to exploit my children … I want to protect my children, so I thought, ‘Half the face is good.’ ”

Back in 2016 when Berry hid their faces in a photo a social media user’s comment made her clapback.
“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.”
