'My mommy met Elmo!' Halle Berry reveals daughter Nahla is only impressed by one thing... her appearance on Sesame Street
She's won an Oscar and is one of Hollywood's most respected actresses.
But Halle Berry revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday that as far as her daughter is concerned she is famous for only one reason - meeting Elmo.
The actress said Nahla, four, believes her famous mother is now a permanent fixture on the iconic children's show after Halle appeared on a Sesame Street episode in 2012.
'She watches it all the time on the iPad, and when her friends come over she loves to say "My mommy met Elmo," and then she makes them watch it,' laughed the star.
