Renowned Hollywood actress Halle Berry, who had earlier shared a cropped image of her children on the photo sharing app Instagram, says, she is not at all ashamed of her children, and she did this purposefully to hide the identities of her children.
The Kidnap actress revealed a photograph of her children, Maceo Martinez and Nahla Aubrey on Instagram on Thursday, but in order to keep their privacy, she opted to crop out half portion of their faces.
"I've noticed you have said this several times now, so let me be clear -- I'm not at all ashamed of my children," the actress said.
"I try to find creative ways to incorporate them into my feed because they are the biggest part of my life, but I also work very hard to keep their identities as private as I can considering they are only children." Halle Berry added.
Berry said that it is her responsibility to keep her children safe and protect them from the spotlight.
"It's my belief, and I'm not criticizing others who have different beliefs, that it's my job as their mother to protect their privacy as best I can." Berry said.
"When they grow and they're of age and they want (to) share their images on the Internet, that will be for them to decide, not me. Feel me? Have a beautiful day," she ended.
