Halle Berry will reportedly walk down the aisle for a third time in coming days as reports claim the actress is preparing to wed her fiance Olivier Martinez.
The Hollywood couple, who got engaged in March 2012, reportedly jetted off to Paris on Tuesday with Berry's 5-year-old daughter Nahla, from a previous relationship. The wedding will mark Martinez's first.
"She has called him 'The One,' " Sophie Dulac, president of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival, reportedly told People magazine. "She's said she never expected to meet this Frenchman, to fall in love like she has."
Berry, 46, first began dating Martinez, 47, in 2010 just months after ending her 4-year relationship with Canadian model, Gabriel Aubry, 37. The couple, who met on the set of "Dark Tide," announced their engagement in 2012.
"[Halle] had given up on being married, but she trusts Olivier. He makes her feel safe. He's a keeper!" a source previously told Us magazine regarding the couple's engagement.
In April, Berry, who was previously married to baseball player David Justice in the early 1990s and to singer Eric Benét in the early 2000s, announced that she and Martinez, who is a French actor, are expecting a child together.
"We can confirm that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are expecting a child," her rep told Us magazine. "She's elated."
While some critics suspected that the Hollywood starlet may have used In vitro fertilization (IVF) to get pregnant, it is understood that she actually conceived naturally. She is rumored to be 15 weeks along in her pregnancy.
"[Halle] is feeling great. It's a very exciting time. This happened naturally – everyone is really happy," a source told People magazine.
In a 2010 interview with talk show host Wendy Williams, Berry remained coy about the prospect of having another child. Her daughter Nahla if fathered by Aubry.
"That's the thing. [My daughter is] asking me. Every night we pray to God, and she's so sweet. She says, 'God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister.' And I say, 'I can do one of those things, I know for sure! The other one we have to keep praying on,'" Berry said.
"What do you say to her when she wants that and can't understand why God's taking so long, you know?" she added.
