In May of 2019, the 53-year-old opened up to TODAY about her strong policies when it comes to showing the faces of her children on social media. 

During her three-year marriage with her ex-husband Olivier Martinez, the couple gave birth to Maceo-Robert. Berry also has a 12-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela from her former long-term beau Gabriel Aubry.

She added, “I’ve fought really hard to protect their privacy, and I just want them to have their life and have it be theirs.”
