Martinez confirms Berry engagement

Halle Berry is definitely engaged to Olivier Martinez, the French actor has revealed.

The couple were rumoured to be tying the knot after the Oscar-winning actress was seen wearing an emerald and diamond ring on her ring finger in January.

Olivier's ex-girlfriend Kylie Minogue sparked further speculation when she tweeted her congratulations for the pair, saying: "'Congrats to Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry!! #wedding."

While sources close to Halle denied an engagement, Olivier has now confirmed the news to the Miami Herald, saying: "Yes, of course it's true."

The 46-year-old actor - who was promoting his new restaurant in Florida - revealed that the ring was designed by Parisian jewellery designer Robert Mazlo.

"He is a real artist, who has been making jewellery for kings and queens for many centuries," he added.

Halle, who has a three-year-old daughter with French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, met Olivier after they co-starred in 2010 action thriller Dark Tide, and their screen chemistry soon led to an off-screen romance.

It would be the former Bond girl's third marriage, following her previous unions to baseball player David Justice in 1993 and soul singer Eric Benet in 2001.
