Halle Berry panicked when she lost her 3-year-old daughter in a department store! Have you ever experienced this terrifying moment with your child?
Halle Berry got distracted for one second in a department store and poof! — Nahla, her 3-year-old daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, disappeared into a clothing rack! “All of a sudden, I looked down at a price tag or something, and she toddled off for what seemed like two seconds,” Halle tells Ellen DeGeneres on an episode of her talk show airing on Monday (Nov. 15). “The next thing I know, I looked back around and it was like, Whosh! Gone! And I said, ‘Nahla? Nahla? Nahla?’ Gone. My heart just started… I’m like, ‘Close the store! Shut the door! My daughter’s gone!’”
We’re sure tons of moms and dads have experienced this kind of situation, but nonetheless it is is still extremely nerve-wracking! “Talk about sweating,” Halle says. “And you just freak out for about 30 seconds. I came undone. I think my head projected off my body.” Despite her panic, Nahla was only a few inches away from her mommy, silently hiding under a clothing rail!
“She was right next to me — in a rounder of clothes where the pants were hanging,” Halle explains. “Right there. And after I became a lunatic and totally embarrassed myself, she stuck her head out and was like, ‘Hi.’”
