Halle Berry has a new man at home and they’ve been spending quarantine together. Halle subtly but not so subtly confirmed the news in an Instagram post a couple of weeks ago that she and Van Hunt, a musician, are indeed a couple.
Sunday, Van and Halle posted an Instagram “PSA” encouraging people to wear masks with a photo in coordinating face masks. Both Halle and Van stressed the importance of staying safe by wearing a mask while also joking about making sure your and your partner’s mask coordinate. Here is more on the story via People:
On Sunday, the Oscar winner, 54, posted a selfie on Instagram that showed herself posing alongside Hunt, 50, as they wore matching black masks. The couple stressed to their followers the importance of wearing face coverings amid the pandemic — while noting their coordination goals.
“You’ve got to COORDINATE. 😂 #MasksSaveLives,” Berry captioned the image. Hunt shared the same message on his own Instagram page, adding the hashtag “#wearamask.”
A source recently told PEOPLE that Berry and Hunt have been seeing each other for “several months,” during which the musician met her daughter Nahla, 12, and son Maceo, 6.
“They are spending a lot of time at Halle’s Malibu house,” the insider said. “She really seems to enjoy the quiet time. Van has met her kids, so it seems pretty serious.”
An additional source added that Berry and Hunt, who celebrated her birthday together in Las Vegas last month, “respect each other and have a great deal in common.”
“Both are very successful and smart, and they seem to be in a mature relationship,” said the insider. “It seems like a really good match.”
I don’t know much about Van but he looks stable and grounded and I feel that is the sort of energy Halle needs in her life. It’s definitely been cute to see her sweet snaps, like the one of their legs and feet intertwined. Hopefully this guy will be the real deal and Halle can finally chill out. Speaking of chilling out, it would seem that Halle has mellowed quite a bit these days. Maybe its because she has gotten older or perhaps she has done the necessary work to make her reject having drama in her life.
I am glad to see her happy because she has had a rough time of it these last three decades romance-wise. Her picker has been off the last decade or so. Some of the drama has been of her own making and some was out of her control. Hopefully her divorce with Olivier Martinez will be finalized soon so that she can move on with her new man and new life.
