Is Halle Berry Engaged?

Halle Berry might be engaged to Olivier Martinez! The actress was spotted sporting a sparkler on her ring finger.

It certainly seems like things have gotten very serious with Halle and Olivier—her daughter Nahla has spent tons of time with the French film actor, and the little girl seems to be very comfortable with her second daddy.

Since Olivier is basically already part of the family, maybe he decided it was time to make things official. The Daily Mail has posted a photo of Halle rocking a big bauble on her engagement ring finger while spending New Year’s Day on Malibu Beach, but she was first spotted wearing it on December 29. So perhaps popping the question was Olivier Martinez’s Christmas present to Halle Berry.

It seems like a kind of cliché thing to do (Matthew McConaughey proposed to Camila Alves on Christmas Day), but the ring in question isn’t your average engagement ring—it’s a gold sparkler with a giant green emerald in the middle.

Since it doesn’t look like a traditional engagement ring, perhaps it’s not the real deal—it could just be a special Christmas gift. After all, Halle Berry certainly wouldn’t be the first actress to spark false engagement rumors by wearing a ring on that particular finger—Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston are two other stars who had to deny that they were engaged after being photographed with baubles on their ring fingers.

It would be extremely surprising if Halle Berry has decided to get married for a third time—in 2009 she said she would never walk down the aisle again (and it’s certainly a good thing she and Gabriel Aubry never tied the knot—their custody battle was bad enough as it was). Halle once said she wanted to commit suicide after her divorce from David Justice, and she also had to endure a failed marriage to Eric Benet. So it’s not hard to see why she’s said that she’s given up on it for good.

It’s also hard to see Olivier Martinez being the marrying type—the lothario has dated the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Mira Sorvino, and Kylie Minogue, so it has always seemed like he would eventually move on from Halle Berry to the next girl. Then again, he would have a hard time doing better.

So what do you think—has Olivier decided that he wants to make things official with Halle, or is it even possible that she just wore the ring in question for a little publicity?
