Dating when you have kids can be complicated, but for Halle Berry, it's a whole lot easier when her kids love the man she's with. During a recent appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan, Halle said her son staged a commitment ceremony for her and boyfriend Van Hunt. So sweet!

While on the show, Halle talked about her son's approval of her relationship

It sounds like 8 year old Maceo really loves his mom and Van Hunt together, because one day, they were all riding in the car when he announced that they should get married.

"This was a ceremony by an 8-year-old in the back seat of the car who said, 'Mom, you should get married to him.' I said, 'Really, I should marry him?' He said, 'Yeah, I pronounce you man and wife.' So we're like, 'Oh, okay. We're married!' But we're not married," she said. "So that's our commitment ceremony. It's silly. It's sweet."

Halle said she's relieved her kids are so happy

"What I love about it is, when you blend families, it's really hard. So the good news is, my kids are comfortable and that's all that matters," she said. "If they ain't happy, we ain't happy. That's all you need. You just need them to be happy."

And it certainly sounds like they are!

Halle is a mom of two

Along with Maceo, who she shares with ex Olivier Martinez, she also has a daughter, 13 year old Nahla, from her previous relationship with Gabriel Aubry.

Halle doesn't share many pictures of her kids on social media (and when she does, they're usually throwback photos), so hearing these details about her life as a mom is extra special.

Halle and Van Hunt have been together for more than a year

As *People* reported, Halle and musician Van Hunt took their relationship public last fall, at which point they'd reportedly been dating for a few months. It wasn't long before they were seen out and about together, showing up as each other's dates on the red carpet — and it doesn't sound like it took long at all for her kids to fall in love with him, either.

Maybe one day, they'll make that ceremony the real deal

And if they do, it sounds like Matteo will be their biggest supporter through it all. Sounds like best man material to us!

So far, it seems like everything's going really well for these two. We can't wait to see where this relationship takes them next.
