In an interview with Miami.com, Martinez (who was in Miami to promote the opening of his new restaurant Villa Azur) responded to questions about his alleged engagement to Berry by saying, "Yes, of course it's true!" The couple met while filming Dark Tide and have been together since the fall of 2010. After this past holiday season, Berry was spotted wearing a gold and emerald ring on one very important finger. But it wasn't until this weeked that Martinez confirmed that the ring is, in fact, an engagement ring.
As for the designer of the ring, Martinez was determined to set the record straight. "There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it's a lie!" he said. "They have nothing to do with this." He was referring to Gurhan, the jewelry designer who has been claiming to have designed the ring since Berry was first seen wearing it back in January. But Martinez said that the ring's real designer was Parisian jeweler Robert Mazlo. Martinez said that Mazlo is a "real artist, whose family has been designing jewelry for kings and queens for many centuries."

Do you think Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez make a cute couple?
