Halle Berry Marries Olivier Martinez in France

The expecting couple wed in small, intimate ceremony.

Published July 14, 2013

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are officially husband and wife, a source confirms to Us Weekly. The couple, who are expecting their first child together later this year, tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Vallery, France, on Saturday.

Berry and Martinez, along with Berry's 5-year-old daughter, Nahla, departed for France last week amid rumors the couple would wed this weekend. Sources report that the ceremony, attended by about 60 guests, took place at the Chateau des Condes immediately following a civil ceremony presided over by the local mayor.

"White marquees were put up, and everyone was very discreet because it was a show business wedding," a local says of the nuptials. "But generally it was pretty down-to-earth." The ceremony was followed by a reception in which the newlyweds and their guests "partied all night long."

The actors, together since 2010, got engaged in January 2012. Berry confirmed rumors in April that she was expecting a son with Martinez. It's the third marriage for the Oscar winner, who was previously married to R&B singer Eric Benet and baseball player David Justice.

Berry has also been embroiled in a very public custody battle with ex Gabriel Aubry, father to her daughter, Nahla. According to sources close to the actress, she seems to have found stability with French actor Martinez. "She trusts Olivier," a friend reveals. "He makes her feel safe."

Indeed, Berry had sworn off marriage prior to meeting her new husband on the set of Dark Tide, but clearly changed her mind. "Never say never, people!" she joked in an interview last year.

Congratulations are in order for the beautiful couple!
