Gabriel Aubry spends time with Nahla at the library, shows off his healed face

We haven’t checked in on Gabriel Aubry and Nahla in a while, so here you go. Gabe and Nahla were photographed coming out of a library in LA yesterday, and they seemed to be enjoying their time together. Gabe carried a bag full of books (presumably) and Nahla seemed to want to play a running game with her dad. Gabriel’s face looks completely healed after his horrible Thanksgiving fight with Olivier Martinez, right? Of course, these aren’t closeups or anything. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Gabriel had to have some plastic surgery to remove some of the scarring or scar tissue.

And in case you think that Halle and Olivier have completely given up and allowed Gabriel to just have unfettered access to Nahla… well, that’s a pipe dream. After spending Christmas in Paris, Halle and Olivier returned to LA – Halle attended the Golden Globes, and Olivier was photographed yesterday looking at cars for sale. They may seem low-key for now, but trust me… this isn’t over. My guess is that it will be two or three months before we have another implosion with this custodial arrangement, although I don’t really see what Halle’s next legal move would be. I’m sure she’ll think of something.

And until then, just enjoy seeing Gabriel with his daughter. For what it’s worth, I think Gabriel enjoys being a hands-on dad, and he adores his daughter so much, and she adores him right back. But these photo ops also provide photographic evidence of their mutual adoration, so that months from now when there’s some new, horrible twist in the custody battle in which Gabriel is demonized, everyone will say “But he’s such a hands-on father!” I’m just sayin’… it’s a smart PR strategy for Gabriel too.

    I can’t imagine actively trying to deny my child that kind of happiness.

    I wish someone would get some real dirt on the wacktitude that is Halle Berry.

    • T.C. says:

      Men are usually trying to run away from child care responsibility. You have a man who loves spending time with his daughter and you working on kicking him out of her life? Shameful, just shameful. Halle will regret it someday.

  2. Dawn says:

    That smile says it all…love! She is a very lucky little girl that her daddy loves her so much that he puts up with her nutso mom.

  3. Memory30 says:

    Omg that man is gorgeous. And he’s more hot with her adorable daughter. 🙂

  4. brin says:

    He looks gorgeous and I love these pictures of father and daughter. I really hope things remain peaceful, for Nahla’s sake.

  5. Lucy says:

    He’s playing such a smart PR strategy I can’t help but wonder what the hell Halle’s are doing or if she still has any PR people still on her payroll, if so they’re s**t and she needs to fire them all, they’re not helping her in this custody thing at all.
    He and Nahla really do look adorable together

    • gogoGorilla says:

      I think Halle thinks she is smarter than everyone and that we’re all going to believe whatever crock of lies she feeds the media.

      I feel sorry for the kid. She’s adorable. Hopefully it will get easier as she gets older and gets a say in where she spends her time.

    • Eileen says:

      What I love about this PR strategy is that all he is doing is allowing some photos out there of him being with his daughter and doing what he loves: taking care if her. This isn’t forced for the cameras. You can tell he adores her.

  6. aims says:

    I love to see men being good dads. Nahla glows when she’s with her daddy. I agree, something will hit the fan soon. Was there ever a ruling about the move to France?

  7. ParisPucker says:

    she is going to be gorgeous, and he clearly loves his daughter. No father should be separated from his child if he is dedicated and loves them. She clearly adores him, and these photos are so sweet of them together

  8. Leek says:

    They’re so freaking cute together.

  9. LadyMTL says:

    They’re both playing the PR game for everything it’s worth, but at the end of the day if Nahla enjoys spending time with her dad, that’s all that matters.

    My parents got divorced when I was quite young (though not as young as Nahla is) and trust me, nothing makes a child happier than being with a parent who loves them…be it mum or dad.

  10. Elceibeno08 says:

    A daughter needs her father to grow up emotionally stable. He seems to love being a daddy.

  11. serena says:

    I hope he won’t be separated from his daughter.. I guess he overdid it during Thanksgiving and it’s partly his fault too.. but let’s be honest he was set up and he’ll be in the future. That’s right, and the judge should seriously check on Halle mental state and well.. I’d give primary custody to Gabriel rather than expecting another something from Halle.

    • Belle says:

      Um… how did he overdo it during Thanksgiving? If he was indeed set up, and beaten to a pulp as it apears, then it seems his options were limited.

  12. Kim says:

    Nahla loves her daddy ,her mommy and Olivier

  13. LAK says:

    Halle already threw the ‘nahla is frightened and uncomfortable with her father’ spanner in the works. That’s why Gabriel started getting himself papped with her,so people could see how untrue that allegation was.

    If only the other allegations were as easily disproved as this.

    Halle is quiet at the moment, but given past pattern of behaviour, something will happen and she’ll be right back to making accusations and trying to separate father and daughter.

    It’s got to be hard living with that sort of ticking timebomb!!!

  14. Malificent says:

    Any parent who takes their child to a library deserves applause!

    • Meredith says:

      ++. I saw pics of Hugh Jackman taking his daughter Eva to a public swimming pool in Australia and I thought “Wow, “normal” life! This is what a kid needs. Fact time with their father doing everyday things”. Great for Aubry to explain to Nahla that this is where people go to borrow books and they’re free for everyone. Not everyone lives in Beverly Hills and has body guards.

  15. Mirella says:

    So sweet!

  16. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    @Kaiser …

    Aren’t you guys based in Canada? What is Gabriel Aubrey’s dating history? Was he in any ‘long-term’ relationships? How did those end? What do his ex-girlfriends say about him?

    I can’t believe I’m the only one here wondering about his life prior to Halle Berry.

    • TG says:

      Halle would have already dug up any dirt on Gabe’s dating history if there was any and plastered it all over the media and the court. At least that is what I think.

    • SpunkyPR says:

      That dirt was already dug up when one of his exes claim he called her by a racist name or made some racist remark. Believe me, no need for Kaiser or any media outlet to dig up his past, Halle and her team have already sent that information around.

  17. Luxe says:

    Looks like they are running towards something b/c one of the pics shows a little girl who looks like she’s running too. These are too cute.

    Doesn’t Halle have a movie coming out in March? I expect her to have drama by then.

  18. FassDaActor says:

    Wow, he heals well.

  19. Margaret Spear says:

    thats not the library thats the preschool.

  20. Memphis says:

    He is adorable, so is his daughter 🙂

    I think he’s a very good dad. Halle said so herself before she started vilifying him to move on with another man.

  21. Bread and Circuses says:

    Not that I’m in a hurry to get older, but I am looking forward to seeing what Nahla looks like as an adult. With her parents, she should be a knock-out. (I feel the same way about the Jolie-Pitt biologicals.)

  22. Sam x says:

    It’s better than talking smack about Halle and her parenting (look what it’s done for her). Nahla’s body language speaks for itself, the little girl loves being with her daddy and he adores her too. They are so sweet together. Nothing sexier than Gabriel being a father to his little girl. All this animousity could end tomorrow if Halle just let it go and co parent with him peacefully for their daughter’s sake than constantly live on edge wondering what kind of drama is she gonna pull next. Then again it’s all worth it for him, cos he gets to see his daughter. x

    What a great Dad to take her to the LIBRARY!!! My kinda guy.
