Oscar winning actress Halle Berry tells it all in her cover story in the September issue of Vogue Magazine. Halle touches on everything from why she and her baby daddy Gabriel Aubry split-up to how they manage to keep a close relationship for their daughter Nahla.

Check out a few excerpts from Halle’s Vogue cover feature below:

On why she and Gabriel split:
“Gabriel and I had long dealt with it. We were done. And we were on a good foot, and we had decided what we were going to do for Nahla, and we were able to say, ‘This will pass.’

On her and Gabriel raising their child together:
“You realize you are not meant to go the distance with everybody. 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. We are a family until we are not here anymore. We’re still friends, we love each other very much, and we both share the love of our lives. And we are both 100 percent committed to being the best parents we can be. And while it was not a love connection for us, he was absolutely the right person to have this child with because she is going to have an amazing father.”
