Halle Berry’s passport is certainly getting some use as of late. Earlier this month, the 51-year-old actress spent some time in India on a spiritual retreat. Then last week she decided to spend the Thanksgiving holiday on the exotic island of Bora Bora. Instead of a gaggle of gal pals, Halle’s traveling companion on this island getaway was her new beau, 35-year-old music producer Alex da Kid.
Halle announced her new coupling in an Instagram post back in September, which came on the heels of an August interview where she told PEOPLE that she was on a dating hiatus, wanting a “minute to be with myself.” Well, I guess that was a minute, huh?
Hey, you (well, maybe just me) can’t blame her for wanting to spend the holidays with someone special, especially in such a romantic locale. The couple shared their vacation snaps via social media and it sure looked like an amazing trip. They seemingly checked off every single item on the ideal tropical vacation list, including swimming, jet-skiing, soaking in some local culture and enjoying some adult beverages by the crystal blue waters. (Yes, I am jealous.) Halle posted an introspective photo, looking out at the ocean, with the caption, “What I call distancing myself from the bulls–t!”
Halle insists she’s “Living my best life,” as she wrote on an Instagram Stories image of her resting by the water. She also expressed the sentiment of the season, posting on Turkey Day, “So thankful for all the dreams I don’t have to close my eyes to see anymore. Happy thanksgiving to you and yours!”
She’s gorgeous, she’s well-traveled and she’s happy. What else do you need? It’s way too early to tell if this Alex thing is just a fun diversion or the seed of a lasting relationship, but it’s great to see her happy. Now, just make a movie to get the taste of Kidnap out of our mouths. That was terrible.
