Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez step out for some family photo-ops: obvious?


Well, well, well. It looks like several months of breakup stories have finally started to get to Halle Berry. Halle spent the weekend in LA doing happy-family photo-ops with her husband Olivier Martinez and the kids. Literally, that’s what they did all weekend! Somewhere (at a farmers market), Jennifer Garner is nodding her head in agreement with this strategy. Ride it ‘til the wheels fall off and then when the wheels are off, leak photos of Olivier with the nanny! The Garner Method ™.

Anyway, Halle wants you to know that it’s fine. She wants you to know that those shenanigans with her engagement ring and wedding band are over. She wants you to know that she and Olivier are not living separately because he’s a violent, intemperate psycho. She wants you to know that she won’t be filing for divorce any time soon. “Soon” being a relative concept, I suppose. And because obvious photo-op is obvious, People Magazine now has an “eyewitness” confirming that Olivier and Halle are totally in love. Or whatever.

Halle Berry and husband Olivier Martinez like their breakfast with a side of P.D.A. The couple, who just celebrated their second wedding anniversary in July, shared an al fresco breakfast at eatery La Conversation in Los Angeles on Saturday. Berry, and Martinez, both 49, ordered croissants and coffee, according to an eyewitness.

“They used to be regulars, so it was fun to have them back,” the witness told PEOPLE. “They seemed fine. Olivier ordered for them.”

Another source told PEOPLE the couple returned to Berry’s nearby home in Beverly Hills after the meal and were both wearing their wedding rings, despite recent reports of relationship trouble.

“The seemed okay and were affectionate,” the source said.

On Sunday, the French actor and Berry spent a family day in Malibu with their son Maceo, and the Oscar winner’s daughter with ex Gabriel Aubry, Nahla,7.

“Halle and Olivier relaxed on the beach with the kids and also visited the Malibu Country Mart for lunch,” a source told PEOPLE. “They had fun with the kids and wore their wedding rings. They seemed happy.”

While I’ve always hated Ring Watch, I paid attention to Halle’s Ring Watch just because there seemed to be something legitimately there, especially with her (fake?) story about “losing her engagement ring” and never getting it replaced. And now an eyewitness comes forward with a first-hand account of Halle and Olivier wearing their rings? It feels weird.

But the point of all of this is still the same, pap stroll or not, happy-family photo op or not. The point is that Halle and Olivier really aren’t breaking up. Right now. Even if this was some strategic public relations move, it still has the same effect of saying that they are still together. For now. We’ll see how long it lasts, but I guess we won’t have to add Olivier and Halle to the Summer of Splits.

    Well one thing for sure he has his father’s eyes.

  2. Leah says:

    Her kids are gorgeous! That little chubby boy makes me broody! So cute!!

    • Denisemich says:

      Even though they are from different fathers, both children look alike.

      I don’t believe Halle and Olivier are on the rocks. But I believe the tabloids will continue saying it until it is true.

  3. celine says:

    Kids are adorable. That’s all I got.

  4. Dawn says:

    Nahla is going to be a beauty and her little brother is a cutie too!

  5. kri says:

    @Kaiser LOL at The Garner Method! Yes, move over Rhythm Method-the Garner Method is foolproof. It might look all peaceful now, but it never stays that way in Krazeetown.

    • Mimz says:

      That was the best part of the post for me.
      The Garner Method. Garner evidence of his shenanigans, while garnering enough attention from the paparazzi for them to garner pictures of you being a perfect wife and mother. When you have garnered everything you need, FILE FOR DIVORCE.

      There is no turning back. And no room for failure.

      Haha ok enough now.

    • Boston Green Eyes says:

      There have been stories about Halle’s crazy shenanigans for a while now. I guess it takes a crazy Frenchman to handle all the craziness.

      I hope the cute kids come Straight Outta Craziness unscathed.

  6. sensible says:

    He should have married Kylie Minogue.

    • emmyb1608 says:

      I think Kylie had a lucky escape from him.

    • Loopy says:

      lol random

    • doofus says:

      he was too busy cheating on her while she treated her cancer.

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        Didn’t he cheat with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley when Kylie was ill? Hollywood is one big itchy cess pool.

        I remember reading at the time Kylie left her family in Australia where she was getting treatment and moved to Paris on his insistence. Her family were very worried at the time as she was so isolated.

      • Paro7 says:

        Cheating on a cancer patient is the lowest of low. These two deserve each other,

  7. original kay says:

    I wonder what Nahla thinks or feels about being around he guy who punched her father. or if she doesn’t know now, she will later in life and she’ll know her mother condoned it.

    This bothers me. I feel for both those kids.

  8. Luca76 says:

    And I was just giving her credit for laying low.

  9. Jegede says:

    Little Maceo is Halle’s image.

    Fascinating to me how its the boys who often look like their mothers!

    • Leah says:

      His eyes are his dads.

    • Dubois says:

      Lol! He looks like Gabriel Aubrey and Nahla to me. Want to tell us something Halle?

    • Cleo says:

      Lol he looks nothing like Halle. Skin tone, that’s It
      Weird neither of her kids really look like her. I think it’s interesting how Nahla and Maceo both have the same eyes, even though they have diff fathers and share a mother who doesn’t have those eyes. Nahla actually looks more like Olivier than Gabriel because he doesn’t have those eyes either.

      Somebody posted a younger pic of Olivier and I see he has those eyes. what’s his background? Is he part indigenous or asian?

      • Ysohawt1 says:

        I agree, except for their coloring, I don’t see much of Halle in either of her kids faces.

      • Jegede says:

        @Cleo – Lol, well I see young Halle in him completely.

        And unlike you, I think Nahla bears no resemblance to Olivier in the slightest.

        That’s how opinions differ.

      • Cleo says:


        Of course that’s how opinions work..everyone has one. Didn’t mean to offend you. I just think eyes are the biggest characteristic on a face, and Halle’s son and daughter have eyes that are uniquely almond shaped with epicanthic folds – like Olivier’s. Halle looks nothing like them. its not an insult. Everybody’s beautiful.

      • Hannah says:

        I think her son has her facial shape actually. But the eyes are very much like Oliver’s. Very distinctive eyes. Oliver’s was a such a hot guy in those older photos. Nahla and her little brother look alike though. They are both such gorgeous kids.

      • TripleThreat says:

        Cleo, Martinez is Spanish aND Moroccan on his dad’s side. Think his mom is Swiss french. There’s this site called ethnicelebs that challenges wiki claims. I know that Aubry may not cop to his indigenous background or is even aware of his pedigree but a Canadian article wrote him up and he is fraction Iroquois or Mohawk. Any descendents of pioneers from 1600s from that region are part indigenous. Justin Theroux and Angelina Jolie included and they’re distant cousins
        How’d ya like knowing that, Brangeloons? Small world after all.

    • Dee says:

      And girls tend to look like their fathers. I thought that was an old picture of Nahla at first – different fathers but the squinty eyes on both make the kids look alike, oddly enough.

  10. Jayna says:

    He is daddy’s mini me. Nahla is getting so big. Where has the time gone. Love her hair.

  11. Caitlin Bruce says:

    Is dude wearing a wig? That Barnett is awfulll 😷

  12. Aussie girl says:

    That is one adorable little man, both her kids are just stunning. As far as the pics, they looked strained and uncomfortable. I feel like I sense the tension from just viewing these pics.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I agree…Halle looks exhausted, tense, and miserable…In that first pic of just her and OM, she looks like he is manhandling her….those kids are pretty adorable, but I feel for them…I just don’t think it’s a happy home….

  13. Merritt says:

    Nahla is really getting taller. And I don’t think I’ve ever seen pictures of the son before. .

  14. silken_floss says:

    “Jennifer Garner is nodding her head in agreement with this strategy.”

    Kaiser, you are hilarious!! LMAO

  15. mayamae says:

    Although I took high school French, I wasn’t sure how to pronounce Maceo. According to pronouncenames.com, it sounds like: Muh-sue. Not as nice sounding as I thought.

  16. grabbyhands says:

    Are there other pictures somewhere? Because nothing about these shots says “happy family”. Her body language is painfully closed and stiff in all of them. The intention may have been to show that everything is good, but the pictures sat otherwise.

  17. BNA FN says:

    I’m shocked Halle is not screaming at the Papz for taking the kids pictures. Im shocked Oliver is not trying to punch a Papz out. Btw, those photos of HB and OM are not showing any connection or happiness. Her son is a mini OM. God bless them I hope they are happier than the photos conveys.

  18. jenn12 says:

    After all of her accusations against her exes, Halle has found a real life psycho. It would be karma if there weren’t a little boy and his sister caught in the middle.

  19. Lea says:

    omg what gorgeous kids! The boy is super cute… the cheeks 🙂

  20. captain says:

    That man used to be so attractive. Now he looks like someone with a serious chronic alcohol problem. She looks like she’s fallen out of love with him. Maybe she can’t stay in love with a man she has a child with. She loved Gabriel till she gave birth to Nahla. She loved Martinez til they had a son.

  21. Louisa says:

    These are “happy” family pics?? I’d hate to see them looking miserable.

  22. swack says:

    She looks very worn out in the last picture. Not a good look for her.

  23. Colette says:

    So I guess the rumors about Julia Roberts and Danny divorcing are true since they brought out their kids and LET them be photographed?
    I have seen pics of Halle’s kids at least eight times this year on celebrity baby sites,were those photo ops as well?

  24. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Halle looks really uncomfortable in that first shot with his arm around her. It feels like he saw the paps and grabbed her and said: Look happy! He creeps me out.

  25. Hannah says:

    I don’t normally gush about kids but Omg those kids are so cute!! Those cheeks on that little boy. And nahla is just a beautiful little girl.

  26. Neah23 says:

    Definitely a photo op, both Halle and Oliver have physically attracted the paparazzi for taking pictures of them and the kids. Back in February Oliver attached a old airport work because he “mistook” him for a paparazzi and now there’s no problem with the paparazzi taking pictures of the kids. Not to mention they seem to be more then happy to set outside in full view of the paparazzi.

  27. sassy says:

    she’s waiting for Jeffery Dean Morgan to unattach first so she doesn’t seem like a homewrecker then BAM those 2 hotties will ride off into the sunset together……in my head anyway

    • Cleo says:

      I heard they had mad chemistry…almost makes me want to watch that show of hers.

      I heard he had a rocky marriage too(Jeffrey dean)- man if Olivier suspects something…it won’t be pretty. Halle needs to stop getting in these messy Jams.

      • sassy says:

        i’ve been watching Extant…its actually quite good if you like Sci Fi

      • Shall says:

        My guess is that while Jeffrey and Halle were working they must have a fling ,I can say while watching extant and while they were promoting extant in talk shows Jeffrey said he had the best working experience with Halle ever.

  28. Tacos and TV says:

    All I have: That’s a cute baby. Seriously. I want to give it a squeezy hug 🙂

  29. funcakes says:

    Blink twice, Halle,if you’re there against your will.

  30. lynda says:

    Has anyone noticed the Daily Mail’s policy re: Halle’s child (and certain others such as Gwyneth Paltrow’s)? They always pixelate his face. Yet other celebs’ kids are fair game and their faces are plastered all over the DM’s web site — e.g. Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Garner, Victoria Beckham. It doesn’t matter where they are or when, the DM consistently publishes the faces of certain kids and not others. They can be in the UK or the US, they are pictured.

    Do the celebs contact the DM and say “sure go ahead and take my kid’s photo” or “I’ll sue if you show my kids’ faces”? Or is the DM simply playing favourites? Sure there are a lot of d-listers and reality stars hungry for publicity that constantly put their kids out there – Kelly Rutherford, I’m talking to you – but it’s pretty obvious that other high-profile stars don’t like their kids being photographed and stalked yet this web site still shows their faces. What’s so special about Halle and Gwyenth

    • Neah23 says:

      I’ve noticed the The Daily Mail doesn’t do that all the time I’ve seen unpixealed pictures of Goop kids ( not from her Instagram) and Halle kids on the Daily Fail. I’m starting to think it depends on who ever is writing the post that day.

      • lynda says:

        I’ve never seen any pics of Goop’s kids unpixelated except for the ones she posts – usually of the back of their heads lol, but judging by the calibre of the writing on the DM, anything is possible. So, consistently inconsistent?

  31. Annie says:

    She makes the prettiest kids in Hollywood. So adorable.

  32. Jen says:

    He looks more into it than she does.
    On another note. Her kids are just insanely cute! I want to squeeze that little mans face.

  33. FrenchGirlChi says:

    Look at that face so adorable…

    meh, I think everyone goes through problems in their relationship. Maybe they needed a break but either way those kids adorable.. Those cheeks…

    making me melt..

  34. siri says:

    Halle looks like he kidnapped her to have this photo op. I get very uncomfortable just looking at them. Not a happy family.
