Halle Berry is "so glad she waited" to have a child.
The 46-year-old actress shares four-year-old daughter Nahla with model Gabriel Aubry.
Halle just entered her forties when she gave birth to Nahla and couldn't imagine coping with motherhood during the preceding decades.
"I'm a much better mother at 46 - or 41, when I had her - than if I were like 21 or 25," she revealed on The Wendy Williams Show Thursday.
"I mean I was just a little baby just trying to figure it out - trying to figure out who I was, let alone having the responsibility of trying to help another little soul develop and grow. I'm so glad I waited."
Halle is currently embroiled in a bitter custody dispute with ex Gabriel over Nahla.
The actress wants to move to France with their daughter and her fiancé Olivier Martinez to escape paparazzi attention, but Gabriel contests the relocation.
"She's just a little kid, and I just want her to be a little kid, and have normalcy and be like everybody else," Halle said.
"As her mom, that's my job - to provide her with that, you know? It's frustrating when you feel like you can't."
