Report: Halle Berry & Gabriel Aubry Narrowly Avoid Custody Dispute

Radar Online, who was first to break the news of a split between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry, is now reporting that a possible custody battle has likely been avoided after the two had reached a “stalemate” over summer plans.

A source has revealed that Berry had plans to spend July to September in South Africa shooting a new film, and intended to bring 2-year-old daughter Nahla with her, leaving Aubry without seeing his daughter for 3 months. An agreement has reportedly been worked out with the source saying,

In the end they reached an agreement. Basically Halle is going to pay Gabriel to be a kind of full time nanny and to come to South Africa for the three months she’s there, and to be Nahla’s full-time caregiver. Halle has a huge house that’s being rented for her and she and Gabriel are going to try to live under the same roof and get along for the sake of Nahla.”

The source also cleared up any future-rumors of a reconciliation, adding, “One thing is for certain though – this definitely is not any kind of attempt at reconciliation. It is definitely 100% over between these two, and if it wasn’t for the fact of sharing a child
together they would quite happily never see each other again.”

Berry and Aubry, a French-Canadian model, were together for 4 years before splitting in April.

Chris O’Donnell Is America’s Hottest Husband

Actor Chris O’Donnell has just been crowned the “Hottest Husband of 2010” by Redbook readers, and is gracing the magazine’s June cover with his adorable family.

The NCIS: Los Angeles star is no stranger to the hunk-title, having been in the industry long enough to have once been considered a “teen-heart throb,” but O’Donnell is now a married man with five children, Lily Anne, 10, Christopher ‘Chip’ Eugene, 9, Charles McHugh, 6, Finley, 4, and Maeve Frances, 2. The actor opened up to the magazine about his family life, and his “rock-solid” marriage of 13-years to Carolina Fentress.

On family life: “I knew when I got into this business I couldn’t have it both ways: I could live the playboy lifestyle, which is not a bad thing to do, or have a traditional family life, which is how I grew up. That was more important to me…When I’m sitting in the backyard at the end of the day with a glass of wine, watching the kids having fun and clowning around, for me, that’s what it’s all about.”

On fame: “The only time it got really crazy was during Batman. Anywhere I went in the world, people knew who I was. I was being offered these huge films that would have taken my career to a different level, and I decided to put on the brakes. I knew if I continued on that track, I probably wouldn’t have gotten married.”

On the secret to a happy marriage: “Our families have the same values and traditions, and I think that goes a long way, because when the excitement and heat of romance wears off, those are the things you fall back on.”

Vanessa Williams On Learning To “Surrender”

Currently starring on Broadway, and set to move into Desperate Housewives’ Wisteria Lane this fall, Vanessa Williams is a force to be reckoned with. In the the latest edition of Working Mother, the stunning 47-year-old mother of four opens up about her staying power in Hollywood, Botox, co-parenting with her exes, and the most important lesson she’s learned as a working mom.

On her role as mom to Melanie, 22, Jillian, 20, Devin, 17, and Sasha Gabriella, 10: “I became a mom when I was young, so I’ve always had my career along with my children. Just eight weeks after I’d had my second child, I had to go to England to promote my album for ten days. So I dragged my breast pump through airport security. I was so weepy to be leaving my newborn. Maybe ten years later, I’d have said no to the trip. As you get older, you get stronger and more confident, and you get more accustomed to saying no and to knowing your boundaries. Things change as you mature. But you still try to do everything you can to be with your kids. I remember flying from Tokyo to New York for a confirmation party for my daughter, and then back to Tokyo to perform. But you can only do so much, and you have to forgive yourself.”

On motherhood’s most important lesson: “My biggest lesson is to surrender, to stop trying to control. You never know what life has to offer. Yes, have a plan, but also be open to the possibility that you don’t know what’s next. The best things that have happened in my life have been complete surprises. I never intended to meet certain people. I never knew certain opportunities would come up. I know a lot of working moms want to stay in control. My advice: Let go of the wheel. Let life happen. And when you get an opportunity, go for it. You can miss opportunities if you’re always trying to control everything. So be open to something new, and you may be pleasantly surprised.”

Sandra Bullock Is A “Natural” With Baby Louis

After months of secrecy, Sandra Bullock brought her 4-month-old son, Louis Bardo Bullock, out in public over Mother’s Day weekend in New Orleans, and several days later in Austin, Texas, Us reveals.

Last Friday (May 14) in Austin – where Sandra owns a home – the proud new mom was “showing the baby off to just random people in stores,” a fellow shopper says. “Sandra was in a really happy mood.”

Bullock, 45, appears to be “such a natural with [Louis] and so easygoing and chill,” local store owner Jennifer Mazuelos says. “He’s such a big boy!”

After learning that her husband Jesse James was having multiple affairs, the Academy Award-winner filed for divorce in April and is now settling into full-time motherhood.

“Sandra is loving it!” a friend tells Us. Adds another pal: “Having Louis around is perfect therapy for what she went through with Jesse.”

While the Miss Congeniality star hadn’t considered adopting alone prior to the split, her unexpected single parenthood has been “an extraordinary lesson for her,” a friend says.

Ellen Pompeo: You Have To Set An Example For Healthy Living

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo is determined to set an example of healthy living for her daughter Stella Luna. The healthy mom, who was frequently spotted heading to the gym while pregnant, spoke with OK Magazine about teaching her daughter how to eat healthy and be active, and how losing her mother at the age of four has made her determined to stay healthy.

Of teaching her family the importance of healthy living, the 40-year-old said,

You have to set an example. What you do, they’ll do. Your kids are going to mimic anything you do, and if you only put healthy food in the fridge, that’s the only choice they have. If you only cook one thing, that’s what your husband’s going to have to eat. You have to put yourself first, and say ‘this is what I made, and this is what you’re going to eat.’ If you’re not healthy, you’re not around, and there is no wife and mother. We certainly want more birthdays and more Mother’s Days.”

Pompeo also touched on losing her mother at a young age and the impact it has had on her, adding, “I grew up without a mother, and it’s extremely important. It’s terrible to lose your mother. It’s terrible to lose anyone. We have to do it for them. We’re so busy being martyrs a lot of the time, doing everything for them. Well, this is for them. Taking care of yourself is for them.”

Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery have been married since late 2007 and welcomed Stella 8 months ago.
