Despite her recent marriage troubles, gorgeous actress Halle Berry is looking forward to her family's future.

The X-Men 2 star is married to musician Eric Benet, who admitted that he had been unfaithful in the past to the MONSTER'S BALL beauty.

But the couple have worked hard to put their difficulties behind them and carry on as a family unit with Eric's daughter India.

Halle says, "I try to choose movies that will only take me away for a short period of time. I don't want to be separated from India or my husband.

"I don't think of myself as her stepmother, only as her mother. She even calls me Mum. She has been what I needed. We do so many things together."
