Actors Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are engaged — to each other, US Weekly magazine confirms. Rumors swirled at the start of the New Year that Halle was engaged when the 48-year-old twice-divorced mother of one was spotted with a sizable rock on her left hand.
That same day, Halle turned the ring around and made a noticeable effort to hide her left hand from the paparazzi. But why all the secrecy? Shouldn’t an engagement be one of the happiest times of a woman’s life — even if it’s her third time?
According to US Weekly, Martinez, 46, proposed to Halle over the holidays, with an emerald-and-diamond ring from Gurhan. She met the French actor while working on the film Dark Tide in 2010.
Halle has a daughter, Nahla, 3, with Canadian underwear model Gabe Aubry, 36. Olivier has no children. Halle was previously married to R&B singer Eric Benet (2001), and former Atlanta Braves baseball star David Justice (1993). Each marriage lasted for 4 turbulent years.
Following her divorce from Benet, Halle swore she would NEVER marry again.
We wish we could say that we’re happy for Halle, but judging from her past history with men (mostly celebrities), we already know how this marriage will turn out.
It seems that Halle is one of those insecure women who only wants a wedding, not a marriage.
