Halle Berry Shares Super Rare Photo of Her Son Maceo on His 8th Birthday (& Also Reveals His Special Nickname)

As of late, much of Halle Berry's Instagram has been used for gushing posts about her boyfriend, Van Hunt. However, the Catwoman actress just made a rare post featuring a shot of her youngest child.

Berry's son, Maceo Robert Martinez, just celebrated his eighth birthday, and she marked the occasion with a personality pic of the birthday boy. “This little dude is 8 today!” she said in the caption. Meanwhile, she also revealed a special nickname she has for Maceo, writing, “Happy Birthday THUNDER!”

Along with revealing his Imagine Dragons-esque moniker, Berry posted a photo of Maceo posing in a brown jacket and camo shorts, with brown gloves and pieces of rope hanging from his coat. He is also seen holding up a peace sign while a flat cap is tipped over his eyes. We're not sure if Maceo is going for a cowboy or a scarecrow look here, but we support his style choices either way.

In the comments, fellow celebs sent their birthday wishes to the 8-year-old, like screenwriter and actress Lena Waithe, who said, “Happy Born day, young prince.” Film producer Elaine Goldsmith Thomas commented, “OMG,” while wellness expert Maria Emmerich added, “Happy birthday” with a heart.

Berry is a mother to two, including Maceo, who is the child of Berry and French actor Olivier Martinez. Meanwhile, the actress also has a daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry (13), who was born during her first marriage to model Gabriel Aubry.

While being a mom probably keeps Berry plenty busy, she's also been working on a variety of projects, including starring in a new science fiction disaster film, titled Moonfall, that is set for release in 2022. Meanwhile, her directorial debut, Bruised, will be released on Netflix next month.

We don't know how you balance it all, Halle.
