Halle Berry Marries Olivier Martinez
Halle Berry has married longtime fiancé and soon-to-be baby daddy Olivier Martinez. The couple reportedly married in a small, private ceremony, at Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France – about an hour drive from Paris, where Martinez was born. The local mayor performed the intimate French ceremony.
Berry revealed last year that she had no interest in a big wedding. “I do know it [the wedding] will be very small. I haven’t been to many weddings, but I went to one this weekend with 250 guests. I thought, 'Wow – so this is a wedding, huh?' I’ve never had that, nor have I wanted that. I wasn’t even trying to catch the bouquet,” Berry told InStyle in October.
In fact, Berry had sworn off marriage completely in 2007, telling InStyle that she would “never, never” walk down the aisle again. In the six years since she made that declaration, it would appear the actress had a change of heart.
“It’s another one of those never-say-never things. I’m a hopeless romantic, and I won’t stop till I get it right,” Berry added.
Berry and Martinez have been dating since 2010, when they met on the set of the film Dark Tide (2012), and were engaged in March 2012. The couple announced Berry’s pregnancy a year later, in April, and Martinez recently confirmed the rumors that they are expecting a boy.
“My son will be an American, but I remain French,” Martinez told People in June.
Berry, who is already mother to a five-year-old daughter, Nahla with her model ex Gabriel Aubry, has previously been married to David Justice (1993-1997) and Eric Benet (2001-2005). This is the first marriage and child for Martinez.
