We haven’t heard much from Halle Berry recently, and it’s probably because she’s all loved up with fit French actor Olivier Martinez. So loved up, in fact, that she’s engaged to him!
Olivier revealed the happy news when the Miami Herald asked him if engagement rumours about the couple were true: “Yes, of course it’s true.”
He also slated a jeweller that’s been bragging about designing Halle’s engagement ring. A spokesperson for Gurhan recently claimed that the pair are engaged and that Olivier had given Halle one of their rings. But Olivier denied it: “There is a jeweller taking credit for doing the ring and it’s a lie. They have nothing to do with this.”
The bling was actually made by Parisian jeweller Robert Mazio. Olivier said that Mazio is a “real artist” who made pieces for “kings and queens for many centuries.”
Third time's a charm
If the pair tie the knot – and we hope they do – this will be Halle’s third marriage. She was first married to baseball player David Justice in the 90s, and had a messy split from him. She then wed soul singer Eric Benét in 2001, and divorced him in 2005 amid rumours that he’d cheated on her.
She has since had a daughter, Nahla, with Canadian model Gabriel Aubry. Nahla turns 4 next month and there’s still a bitter custody battle going on between Halle and Gabriel. Martinez would be marrying for the first time. His ex - none other than Kylie Minogue - recently tweeted her support for the couple, responding to engagement rumours with: “Congrats to Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry!! #wedding”
