Developing a loving relationship with a new partner's children can be difficult but Halle Berry managed the feat in no uncertain terms. Indeed just being a stepmother to India, the young daughter of her former husband Eric Benet, wasn't enough for the pretty actress, so she decided to formally adopt her. "When I came into her life she was seven," explains the Oscar winner. "At that time girls start to need a mother, so it's been a great thing for both of us. The minute (Eric and I) got engaged, she started calling me 'Mommy'."

Although Halle's marriage to the musician ended in divorce a few years later, the Oscar-winning actress remains a committed mum to India. Indeed she says the teenager whose biological mother lost her life in a tragic car accident will always be her number one priority: "If I have a child of my own body, it won't mean any more to me than she does. It'll be different, but it won't mean more."
