Back in her mother's arms! Halle Berry scoops up her sleepy daughter Nahla after Parisian holiday with Olivier Martinez
But Halle Berry was undoubtedly missing her little girl, Nahla, during the lovers' getaway.
The 46-year-old actress scooped up her sleepy four-year-old daughter and carried the youngster on her hip as they made their way through a New York City airport after a joyous reunion on Friday.

Halle looked tired after a long-haul flight herself, although her complexion was flawless even without a scrap of make-up.
The actress dressed down in tight leather pants, a black sweater, grey scarf and black coat, while Nahla was dressed adorably in head-to-toe pink and orange striped pants.
The curly-haired daughter of Halle and ex-partner Gabriel Aubry sweetly leaned her head on her mother's shoulder, while the actress leaned her cheek against her little girl's forehead and walked through JFK airport.
Noticeably absent was Halle's fiance, French actor Olivier.

The couple were pictured several times taking in the sights around his native Paris while Nahla spent Christmas with her dad in the U.S.
It seemed earlier this week, however, that the holidays without her little girl had started to take a toll on Halle, who was seen looking decidedly miserable even on a walk through the City of Lights on Thursday, even while holding her handsome man's hand.
Halle and Olivier have had a difficult few months that would any relationship to the test.
The actor had been hoping to return to his home country permanently with his American fiance, both of whom would like to trade in the Hollywood lifestyle for more low profile one.

The Frenchmen told Interview magazine he has no desire to be a movie star: 'My goal is just… to get some interesting parts and make enough money to live free.'
'Otherwise, to be a movie star, it's a lot of compromise and also a lot of headaches.'
Halle has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle with her ex, 36-year-old Canadian model Gabriel, and recently lost a legal challenge to move to France permanently with her daughter.
The actress was ostentatiously carrying a child's pink pig backpack as she arrived in France, suggesting that she wanted to keep her daughter as close to her as possibly during this enforced absence.

As the pair walked through the arrivals terminal at the Charles De Gaulle airport Olivier pumped the air victoriously perhaps indicating that he was happy to finally be back on home turf after a difficult few months.
At least the couple have had a more peaceful Christmas holiday than their Thanksgiving during which Halle's ex Gabriel Aubry was involved in a brutal brawl with Martinez.
The incident occurred during a custody hand over at her Hollywood Hills home in which Aubry alleged Martinez said: 'You’re going to Paris or I’m going to kill you... You’re going to Paris, you’re going to get your 20 grand a month in child support.'
Aubry was found by police to be the aggressor in the incident but charges against him were dropped.
