It looks like wedding bells are set to ring for actress Halle Berry and her husband-to-be, Olivier Martinez.
A rep for Berry confirms that she's engaged to the 46-year-old French actor, who spilled the beans over the weekend while promoting his new Florida restaurant.
“Yes, of course it’s true,” he told the Miami Herald at the opening of his eatery, Villa Azur, in South Beach.
Martinez also cleared up reports about which jeweler created Berry’s emerald and gold engagement ring.
“There’s a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring, and it’s a lie!” he said. “They have nothing to do with this."
He called the true creator, Robert Mazlo of Paris, "a real artist" who has been making jewelry for "kings and queens for many centuries."
Speculation about the couple’s possible engagement has been swirling for weeks, ever since Berry, 45, was spotted sporting the bling.
It will be the Oscar winning star's third marriage, as she was previously married to baseball player David Justice as well as singer Eric Benet.
Berry also has a 3-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend and model Gabriel Aubry.
There’s no word yet on a wedding date, but the Hollywood lovebirds will be seen together in the shark thriller “Dark Tide" when it hits theaters later on this month.
