Halle Berry thinks waiting until she was 41 to have her daughter Nahla has made her a better parent than she would've been in her 20s or 30s.
Halle Berry is glad she didn't have children until she was in her 40s.
The 'Cloud Atlas' star had daughter Nahla - whose father is her former partner Gabriel Aubry - when she was 41 years old, and thinks she is a much better parent now than she would've been in her 20s or 30s.
The 46-year-old beauty said: ''I was 41 when I had Nahla and I think I was right to have waited.
''I don't think I would have been as good a mother in my 20s or even in my 30s as I'm able to be now.
''It took me time to figure out so many things in my life - who I was, how to become happy - before I could reach the point where I could be the kind of mother I wanted to be.''
While Halle - who is engaged to Olivier Martinez - is proud of her professional achievements, she will always put her family life ahead of her career.
She added in an interview with The Sun newspaper: ''Being a mom puts things into perspective about what we take and share in life.
''It's a matter of juggling and finding what comes natural.
''Being a mother is probably the most important thing in my life.
''Career is important, but nothing really supersedes my role as a mother. That's the most important thing I'm going to do in life at this point.''
