Halle BerryActress Halle Berry has never talked about her custody battle with ex Gabriel Aubry before, but in an interview with 'Extra,' the 43-year-old actress finally opened up and talked about the court proceedings without giving exact details.

"It's been a year full of challenges. When there's a child involved, it's a relief when you can resolve things in a good way," Berry said. "Our issues were never about fighting for her. We both know a child needs both her parents."

She continued, "But what I want to say about it is sometimes, as a couple, you reach an impasse. We need a court and a judge to help us work out some of the delicate issues, and I'm so happy we've arrived at that place -- because for her sake, this is the best way. We both love her more than life."

The Oscar winner has been in a long and at times contentious custody battle with French-Canadian model Aubry, the father of their 3-year-old daughter, Nahla. The couple split in April 2010.
