The rumor mill is on fire with talk that Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry (pictured left) and baby daddy Olivier Martinez (pictured) are getting hitched this weekend, according to People Magazine. The couple has been engaged since March of this year.
The 46-year-old performer, who is pregnant with her second child, was spotted with Martinez and 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, taking a flight from Los Angeles to France earlier this week. US Weekly is speculating that the pair will exchange vows in the south of France, while People Magazine thinks the nuptials will take place in a different location.
Berry has had a tumultuous love life and if she does decide to make her relationship with the 47-year-old French actor a permanent one, it will mark her third trip down the aisle. The actress was wedded to former Atlanta Braves baseball right fielder, David Justice, for only three years and the couple concluded that there was more “bad than good” to their union. The collapse of her marriage to Justice reportedly damaged the actress so severely that she admitted to trying to take her own life. “I felt worthless, like such a failure. I worried what would people think about my marriage being over,” she said later during an interview.
Sexy crooner Eric Benet was Berry’s second husband, and their marriage lasted three years as well. Often troubled, the superstar couple split due to Benet’s infidelities and public admission of undergoing sex addiction treatment, even though he has not deemed himself a “sex addict.”
Another of Berry’s tempestuous relationships was with Nahla’s father, model Gabriel Aubry. The relationship between the two celebs made headline news as they battled for custody of Nahla while flinging mud in each other’s direction. The relationship was never altar-bound, however.
When Martinez entered Berry’s life in 2010, she was still in the throes of her custody battle with Aubry. Berry and Martinez met on the set of the film “Dark Tide.” Now seemingly at peace with her latest–hopefully last– love, Berry, who once swore off marriage forever, has now seemingly reneged. According to a source who spoke to US Weekly about Berry’s feelings towards Martinez, “She trusts Olivier. He makes her feel safe. He’s a keeper!”
Halle, we wish you happiness!
