Celebrity Halle Berry's Ex Gabriel Aubry Files for Joint Custody of Daughter Nahla The model, who dated Berry for about four years, also wants legal recognition he's the baby's father By Mike Fleeman Published on January 18, 2011 06:50 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Dave Allocca/Startraks Gabriel Aubry asked a court to recognize formally that he’s the father of 2½-year-old Nahla and to establish that he’ll share custody with ex-girlfriend Halle Berry. Berry, 44, gave birth to Nahla in 2008 after dating Canadian model Aubry for about two years. The couple split last April. In papers filed Dec. 30 in Los Angeles Superior Court, Aubry says that he and Berry already had signed documents relating to the paternity of Nahla, whose last name is listed as Aubry. Aubry, 35, also seeks a court order establishing that he and Berry have joint physical and legal custody of their daughter.
