It’s official! After weeks of speculation, Olivier Martinez has confirmed his engagement to Halle Berry.
The Miami Herald reported the happy news after the French actor was asked about the rumors at the opening of his new South Beach restaurant Villa Azur on Saturday night.
“Yes, of course it’s true,” he said when asked about the news that Star magazine broke through RadarOnline.com in January.
Martinez, 46, was also quick to make sure the man who made the engagement ring for his 45-year-old bride got credit for his work.
“There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it’s a lie,” he said. ‘They have nothing to do with this.”
The ring was in fact designed by a jeweler called Robert Mazlo from his Saint-Germain-de-Pres neighborhood in Paris.
Martinez describes him as “a real artist’ who has designed for “kings and queens for many centuries”.
Berry has a three-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and has been married twice before.
Martinez was in a relationship with Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue for many years before they split in 2007.
