Though actress Halle Berry was nowhere in sight, she allowed her beau Oliver Martinez to have his very own bonding time with her 3 -year old daughter, Nahla, according to UsMagazine.com.  Nahla is actually the daughter of Berry’s ex- husband, Gabriel Aubrey.  However, one would never guess with the way little Nahla and Martinez got along.  Their bonding time consisted of swinging across the sand and innocent little laughs and giggles amongst the scenery of a picturesque Malibu beach.  It’s safe to say that the two enjoyed each others’ company.

Cupid’s Advice:

Many mothers have a difficult time letting their little ones leave their sight.  So, how do you know whether or not your partner is trustworthy enough for your child?  He or she might be just right for you, but not right for the care of your baby.  Cupid has some advice:

1. If your partner has children: Observe how well your other half treats his or her kids.  This may be your determining factor when it comes to allowing him or her to spend time with yours.

2. Kid-friendly: Does your beau even like children? This may simply be a direct question you can ask, or you can observe him come in contact with children and how he reacts.

3. Responsibility overall: Look for tiny clues as to whether your partner ranks high on the responsibility scale.  If not, you know your answer. When it comes to kids, being responsible is key.
