*Halle Berry, the cover story for Vogue’s new September 2010 issue [see photos], says she doesn’t regret her relationship with male model Gabriel Aubry and knows there will always be a bond between them because of their two-year-old daughter Nahla.
“It’s just that you realize you are not meant to go the distance with everybody,” she says. “We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that’s why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together forever, all three of us.”
Berry has been married twice and says she will never do it again, but the Hollywood star says she has not given up on the possibility of being in a committed relationship once again.
“I’m not done with love, but I refuse to settle. I am a hopeless romantic. And I won’t stop till I get it right,” she says. “I don’t think I’m unlike a lot of people. I am just someone who is trying to find that mate, and I think it’s a really hard thing to do.
“And I’m not willing to stay somewhere where I am really not happy. And I am not willing to pretend I am for the kid’s sake or so that I don’t have to go through another public humiliation.”
The Oscar winner says she’s happy she waited until later in life to have a child and wishes women were biologically programmed differently so that it becomes easier to conceive as they get older.
“When you are younger, it should be harder to get pregnant, and as you get older, it should be easier. When you are so ready, you can’t do it to save your life.
“And when you are 21, you are so not ready, but you are ripe as could be. The eggs should become more developed the older you get, not die slowly from the day you’re born. That’s one thing God got wrong.”
