Radar, Star Magazine and Us Weekly are all claiming the same thing this morning – Halle Berry and her prisoner/boyfriend Olivier Martinez are engaged! Halle and Olivier have been photographed frequently over the past month, to the point where I was wondering if some big announcement was about to come out. My suspicion was about Halle’s custody battle with Gabriel Aubry, though – I thought there was another shoe to drop with that subject. Turns out, Halle just wanted us to know that she and Olivier are loved up and engaged.
Third time’s the charm for Halle Berry! The 45-year-old actress and Olivier Martinez are engaged, a source confirms to the new Us Weekly, on stands Friday.
Over the holidays, Martinez, 46, proposed with an emerald-and-diamond ring from Gurhan.
Berry, who has a 3-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, has been married twice before. (She dated model Aubry, 36, for nearly five years before splitting in April 2010.) She wed former baseball player David Justice in 1993 and divorced four years later. She then married R&B singer Eric Benet in 2001, only to separate in 2003 and finalize their divorce in 2005.
She first met French actor Martinez while working on the film Dark Tide; they stepped out as a couple in fall 2010. He previously dated Australian pop star Kylie Minogue for several years before splitting in 2007.
A source tells Us she “had given up on being married, but she trusts Olivier. He makes her feel safe. He’s a keeper!”

Radar’s report is pretty much the same, only they add the detail that Halle wants to have Olivier’s baby too. A source tells Star/Radar: “Halle is very serious about this marriage. She’s ready. Olivier has become her rock. Halle feels Olivier has made a connection and a commitment to her and her daughter. Halle would love to have more kids, but she knows it might be difficult because of her age and the fact that she’s diabetic. If they can’t conceive, they’d definitely consider adoption.”
Sure, it’s all happiness and glowing and planning a baby right now. But when they break up, Halle will let us know that Olivier was an abusive, racist monster. I’m just saying – Olivier should watch his ass, because Halle does not do breakups well.
