Halle and Olivier split last year

Fans may expect to see photos of her two children, two-year-old son Maceo, who she shares with ex Olivier Martinez, and Nahla, seven, her daughter with Gabriel Aubry.

The Oscar-winning actress separated from her husband Olivier after two years of marriage in October but they have remained amicable since.

The former couple announced their divorce with a joint statement in October, saying: "We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son."

Halle first met Olivier on the set of Dark Tides in 2010, and the actor proposed two years later with an emerald engagement ring. The couple tied the knot in an intimate wedding in France the following year when the actress was six months pregnant with their son.
