Wow, can we go cliche here and say that third’s time the charm for Halle Berry..well, hopefully. It’s a busy season in Hollywood with mounds of divorce news, engagement news, and baby news making the rounds but this news may steal some wind from Blue Ivy Carter. US Weekly is reporting that Halle Berry got engaged over the weekend to actor Oliver Martinez whom she met on the set of “Dark Tide.” Martinez proposed with an emerald-and-diamond ring from Gurhan.The couple have been dating since 2010.
This will be the third marriage for Halle Berry who turned 45 last August. She was married to former baseball player David Justice for four years, beginning in 1993, and was married to singer Eric Benet in 2001. That marriage lasted for two years and dissolved due to his acts of infidelity. We all know about Berry’s well-documented struggles with love. She’s suffered from domestic abuse and a husband who claimed to have sex addiction. Yes, we’re talking about you Mr. Benet.
Berry also had a long five year relationship with model Gabriel Aubry, which spawned daughter Nahla three years ago. Does the fact that Berry is engaged to Martinez after a less-than-two-year courtship say anything about her relationship with Aubry which was longer and more involved with baby Nahla?
There are no reports on whether Martinez, 45, has had any children but he has dated a string of high profile celebs including Mira Sorvino and singer Kylie Minogue.
