Halle Berry: Moms Are ‘Built to Multitask’

Five months after giving birth to Maceo-Robert, Halle Berry is back to work filming her new CBS television show Extant, premiering July 9.

The actress says one of the main reasons she decided to take on a TV role is so she can be closer to her 5-month-old son with husband Olivier Martinez and her 6-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela.

“I no longer can afford to have the gypsy life,” she tells PEOPLE. “This [show] allows me to stay home and still do something really creative and cool that I love.”

The actress, 47, is also busy promoting her film Frankie & Alice and says thinking of the other working moms out there helps her get through the long days.

“I know I’m not alone. Women have done this forever. We are built to multitask. When you think, ‘How can I not sleep, nurse and work?,’ you just do. We are machines like that. We are built to do this,” Berry explains.

She adds that even though there are long hours on the set of the Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi drama, being in the same city as her kids is what is the most important.

“My kids can come visit me and I can tuck them in at night,” she says.

Halle Berry: ‘Breastfeeding Helped me Lose Baby Weight’

Halle Berry: ‘Breastfeeding Helped me Lose Baby Weight’

Halle Berry: ‘Breastfeeding Helped me Lose Baby Weight’HALLE Berry says breastfeeding helped her get back into shape after giving birth.

The actress, 47, welcomed a son, Maceo-Robert, in October.

“Every mother should breastfeed. It’s the quickest way to shed the initial weight and then you have to eat right,” she told US TV show Extra.

Berry points out that her daughter Nahla is relishing her new role as a big sister.

“She’s very serious about her big sister role. It’s like one of her doll babies came alive,” the mom of two shares.

“She gets to take care of him, feed him, change his diapers, play with him, dress him up in different clothes like five times a day because she can, so she loves it.”

Halle Berry: Nahla Is ‘Very Serious’ About Being a Big Sister

Halle Berry: Nahla Is Very Serious About Being a Big SisterSplash News Online

After becoming a mother later in life to daughter Nahla, Halle Berry never believed more kids were in the cards for her.

But in July 2013, the actress married Olivier Martinez and the couple welcomed a son, Maceo-Robert, in October — an unexpected blessing that Berry never saw coming.

“I just feel great because I have another baby. I never thought that at my stage in life another baby — and a baby boy — was coming to me,” the Frankie & Alice star, 47, tells Extra.

Not only does she feel wonderful, but Berry — who showed off her svelte shape less than four months after childbirth — has already bounced back from her pregnancy.

She credits her quick turnaround to nursing and healthy eating habits.

“Every mother should breastfeed. It’s the quickest way to shed the initial weight and then you have to eat right,” she explains. After five years of being an only child — “a good distance between them so there’s no jealousy,” Berry points out — Nahla, 6, is relishing her new place in the family.

“She’s very serious about her big sister role. It’s like one of her doll babies came alive,” the mom of two shares. “She gets to take care of him, feed him, change his diapers, play with him, dress him up in different clothes like five times a day because she can, so she loves it.”

Berry has switched gears and is currently working alongside Steven Spielberg on a new TV series, Extant. And while she’s “always wanted to work with” the director, she admits there’s been a definite learning curve to juggling the long hours with two children.

“What I’m learning to do — trying to right now — is find the balance … my baby is always with me on set,” she says. “I bring my daughter after school. I have a nursery there, a playroom for her, so I try to make it as nice as I can for them to spend time with them, see them.”

But her show isn’t the only one on her mind. With her husband’s new role in Revenge, the actress admits she’s been tuning in to see the sexy star.

“I’m going to follow his little arc along. I’m very proud of him … I think he’s delicious,” she says.

Jessica Simpson looks hot!

A devoted mother to her two uber-cute kids, she has been a client of mine for nearly eight years. Jess has stuck to her Weight Watchers diet, walks 10,000 steps per day and has been incredibly consistent with our workouts. Most notably, Jess has outstanding legs. They’re toned and sexy in all the right ways.

Now, I always say the most important factor in having a great body part is to pick your parents carefully (I kid!), but Jess’s mom, who spent years as an aerobic instructor, also has great legs.

That being said, there are four moves that I have Jess do to make her genetically-gifted legs even more amazing. Try these moves for 3 sets of 20 reps each:
