Will it be third time lucky? 'Halle Berry engaged to marry Olivier Martinez'

He's a keeper! Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry seen in April: The actors are engaged to be married

She's had a rough ride in the romance stakes. But Halle Berry has not given up on finding her Prince Charming as it appears the 45-year-old actress and French actor Olivier Martinez are engaged to be married.

A source has confirmed the happy news to Us Weekly magazine and Halle, who despite her two previous marital failures has said 'he's a keeper.'

Martinez, 46, reportedly proposed with an emerald-and-diamond ring from Gurhan which the Catwoman actress has been seen sporting recently.

The actress was first pictured with a ring on her wedding finger as early as December 29, leading to speculation that Martinez planned a Christmas proposal.

She has been careful to keep the ring turned around to just look like a plain band in recent weeks, but gave photographers a glimpse of the stunning stone during an outing in LA yesterday.

The attractive couple first met while working opposite one another on the film Dark Tide; they soon emerged as a hot new couple in the autumn of 2010.

A source told Us: '[Halle] had given up on being married, but she trusts Olivier. He makes her feel safe. He's a keeper.'

Happy families: Martinez is known to have bonded with Halle's daughter Nahla, and is regularly pictured caring for the three-year-old alone with his girlfriend

Martinez previously dated Australian pop princess Kylie Minogue, 43, for several years - and supported her through her battle with breast cancer - before they split in 2007.

For Berry, who has a 3-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, this will mark her third trip up the aisle.

She dated handsome model Aubry, 36, for almost five years before their acrimonius split in April 2010.

Halle's love life has been fraught with hard times. An ex-boyfriend beat her so badly that she was left partially deaf, her first marriage falling apart caused her to attempt suicide and she accused her second husband of being a sex addict.

And before that Halle wed former baseball player David Justice in 1993, divorcing four years later. The actress has spoken publicly about attempting suicide after the end of her first marriage.

She then married R&B singer Eric Benet in 2001, only to separate in 2003 and finalise their divorce in 2005.
