Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry has filed legal documents asking a judge to officially declare him the daddy of 2-year-old Nahla.
TMZ has learned Gabriel Aubry filed a paternity petition on December 30, 2010.
Sources say Gabriel was afraid things were going to get rocky in establishing who gets to spend time with the 2-year-old, so he wanted to protect his rights.
Turns out … we’re told whatever differences Halle and Gabriel have … they’ve been pretty much worked out.
Sources say the former couple has not filed for child custody, visitation or support and they don’t plan to file — they have an arrangement they worked out between the two of them and don’t feel the need to go to court.
Fellas take note. The best way to secure your rights as a father is to be proactive. Establish paternity and work out the details instead of waiting for someone to tell you what your rights are. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
