Halle Berry is putting her dream of moving to France on hold until her daughter turns 18.
The Oscar winner is anxious about moving to Europe with fiancé Oliver Martinez but her ex, Gabriel Aubry, refuses to let her take their five-year-old daughter, Nahla, along with them.
Berry has decided to let Nahla make the ultimate decision and plans to remain in the States until her little girl is off to college and can make her own decisions.
“It probably won’t be until my daughter is 18 and off to college,” the Cloud Atlas star told, the Daily Mail.”When Nahla turns 18, she’ll be legally able to make her own decisions about where she wants to be and I think that then, when she’s off on her own, we’ll move there. It’s where I want to end my days, that’s for sure.”
With the move postponed, Martinez has encouraged Berry to hold off on learning French until the two of them move to the country.
“I was told very lovingly by him not to work on it too hard now but to wait until we get to live there. Because for me, at my age and with all that I already have on my plate, trying to learn French is probably one of the hardest things I could possibly do,” Berry spilled to HELLO! magazine.
“He thinks I’ll have an easier time when we’re living there and immersed in the culture- if we ever get to go that is.”
