Halle Berry is bidding to make it third time lucky with French actor Olivier Martinez, after accepting his proposal of marriage over the holiday period, according to a source who spoke with US Weekly magazine. Martinez, 46, proposed with an emerald-and-diamond ring from luxury jewellers Gurhan.
Oscar-winner Halle has a 3-year-old three daughter Nahla with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, but never married the supermodel despite dating for 5 years. She first wed former baseball player David Justice in 1993 (he was recently played by Stephen Bishop in the Brad Pitt movie Moneyball) before the couple divorced four years later. She then tied the knot with R&B singer Eric Benet in 2001, only to separate in 2003 and finalize their divorce in 2005. The Monster's Ball star first met French star Martinez while the pair worked on the set of movie 'Dark Tide', later going public with their romance in the fall of 2010. The actor had previously dated Kylie Minogue for several years, before the pair finally called it quits in 2007. A source close to the pair said Berry "had given up on being married", adding, "but she trusts Olivier. He makes her feel safe. He's a keeper!"
It could be a big year for the actress, 45, who is set to star alongside Tom Hanks in Cloud Atlas - a big budget movie based on the best-selling book by David Mitchell.
