Halle BerryIn the September issue of Vogue, Halle Berry opens up about her breakup with Gabriel Aubry for the first time.

"It's just that you realize you are not meant to go the distance with everybody. We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that's why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together, forever, all three of us. We are a family until we are not here anymore," she tells the magazine.

Berry and Aubry, who split this past April, have a 2-year-old daughter, Nahla, together. They'd been together four years when they ended their relationship.

"We have always been friends, we're still friends, we love each other very much, and we both share the love of our lives. And we are both 100 percent committed to being the best parents we can be. And while it was not a love connection for us, he was absolutely the right person to have this child with because she is going to have an amazing father. And that was really important to me. We'll make sure we always do what is right for her and put her first. And she will see as she grows that we have a lot of love for each other," she adds in the interview.

Berry refused to remain committed to her ex romantically just for her daughter's sake. "I don't think I'm unlike a lot of people. I am just someone who is trying to find that mate, and I think it's a really hard thing to do. And I am not willing to stay somewhere where I am not really happy. And I am not willing to pretend I am for the kid's sake or so that I don't have to go through another public humiliation."
