LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Olivier Martinez has finally confirmed ongoing reports claiming he and Halle Berry are engaged to be married.
At the opening of his new restaurant, Villa Azur, in Miami on Saturday, the 46-year-old actor confirmed the engagement news to The Miami Herald’s Miami.com, saying, “Yes, of course it’s true.”
The French heartthrob also addressed rumors surrounding Halle’s unique emerald with yellow gold ring.
“There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it’s a lie!” he reportedly told the website. “They have nothing to do with this.”
Olivier added that the ring was actually designed by legendary Parisian jeweler Robert Mazlo, who the actor described as “a real artist,” whose family has been designing jewelry “for kings and queens for many centuries.”
The impending union will be Halle’s third marriage.
The 45-year-old actress – who has a 3-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry – was married to baseball star David Justice in 1993 and split four years later. She then wed singer Eric Benet in 2001 and they finalized their divorce in 2005.
Olivier previously dated singer Kylie Minogue and split with the pop star in 2007.
