French actor Olivier Martinez has confirmed that he and Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry are engaged to marry, a report said.
"Yes, of course it's true," Martinez told the Miami Herald over the weekend when he was in town for the opening of his new restaurant Villa Azur.
Martinez also wanted it known that their engagement ring is being designed by Robert Mazlo of Paris, "a real artist" whose family has designed rings for kings and queens for centuries, he said.
"There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it's a lie! They have nothing to do with this," he said.
Martinez and Berry met during the filming of "Dark Tide" in 2010.
Berry has been married twice before and has a three-year-old daughter with Canadian model Gabriel Aubrey.
Known for the "X-Men" movies and her role as Jinx in the James Bond flick "Die Another Day" (2002) with Pierce Brosnan, Berry won the Oscar for best actress in 2002 for her role in "Monster's Ball".
