Pregnant Halle Berry is now a married woman, after she and Oliver Martinez tied the knot in France over the weekend.

The newlyweds, who are expecting their first child together later this year, have been together since 2010.

On Saturday, Berry wed Martinez during a ceremony at Chateau des Conde Vallery, France, according to Us Weekly.

The ceremony took place in a small chateau where a civil union was held before the religious ceremony, in accordance with French law.

Around 60 guests attended the wedding, including Martinez's brother Vincent and his mother Rosemarie.

"White marquees were put up, and everyone was very discreet because it was a show business wedding," an onlooker told Us Weekly before noting several white limousines. "But generally it was pretty down-to-earth."

The 46-year-old bride donned a white outfit that displayed her bare arms and featured silver embellishments at the shoulders, according to a photo at E! News.

Wedding guests then enjoyed dinner as well as dancing following the ceremony.

"They all partied long into the night," another source said, according to Us Weekly.

Meanwhile, it is the third marriage for Berry. The "Cloud Atlas" star was married to baseball player David Justice for four years until 1997 before marrying singer Eric Benet in 2001. The pair split four years later.

In addition to starting their married life together, Berry and Martinez will welcome son this fall.

"My son will be an American, but I remain French," Martinez told People magazine.

The baby boy will join big sister Nahla, 5- Berry's daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.

At 46-year-old, Berry admitted that her pregnancy caught her off guard.

"This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth," said the actress speaking to CNN in April. "Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it's been a big surprise and the most wonderful."
