Halle Berry & Gabriel Aubry: Friendly, Globe-trotting Exes
Berry and Aubry are co-parenting their daughter and spending time with each other from California to South Africa
Just don’t confuse the closeness for a romantic reconciliation.
“They are great parents and they want the best for Nahla,” a source close to Berry tells PEOPLE. “She is their priority. They love that little girl a lot.”
And their love of their daughter is global in scope. In recent months, the three have spent time together in California, South Africa and England. After going public with their breakup in June, the family was spotted at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif.
Weeks later, they flew from L.A. to South Africa, where Berry, 44, began filming her new movie, the maritime thriller Dark Tide in mid-July.
When Berry wasn’t filming, she and Nahla were busy sightseeing at Cape Town’s Table Mountain, one of the city’s top tourist spots thanks to its views. The next day, the ladies teamed up with Aubry, 33, for a visit to Two Oceans Aquarium, where Berry told staff she was researching sharks for her movie.
Together But Distant
According to an onlooker in the aquarium’s gift shop, the parents “were together but distant,” shopping separately, while Aubry also spent some time with Nahla outside. “They didn’t behave as if they were a couple in love,” the onlooker says. “He did his thing and she did hers.”
Before leaving South Africa, Berry and her Dark Tide costars also toured Monwabisi Park, a poor district in nearby Khayelitsha township. The actress and the crew paid a visit to the Indlovu Project, a community development initiative that includes a clinic, youth center and community hall.
Okay in the U.K.?
Next on the global itinerary: London, where the three set up shop at a luxury hotel in the tony Kensington neighborhood and were spotted touring the city on Aug. 26, making stops at the London Eye, Harrods and Buckingham Palace, where the family watched the changing of the guard. Also on the itinerary? A stroll through Hyde Park. Berry also spent a day alone in the city with her daughter.
“They’re going to co-parent and go on with their lives,” the source says. “They will be in each other’s lives forever.”
