There were a lot of breakups over the last few days, so let's give some good news and note that Halle Berry's alleged fiance, French actor Olivier Martinez, has finally confirmed that yes, he and Halle are engaged. It's about time someone in Hollywood got married instead of divorced. We haven't had a good celebrity wedding since Kim Kardashian's ... wait, we meant a good celebrity wedding.

"Yes, of course it's true," Martinez, 46 told Miami.com before the Saturday night opening of his South Beach restaurant, Villa Azur. He's a little torqued about the rumors concerning the emerald and yellow gold ring Halle's been wearing since January, however. "There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it’s a lie! They have nothing to do with this."

He must be talking about jewelry designer Gurhan Orhan, who has been taking credit for the bauble. Martinez says the ring was really made by Paris-based jeweler Robert Mazlo, who conducted what Us Weekly called an "alchemy test" to decide how he should design the ring. Pretty elaborate for 45-year-old Berry's third marriage -- she previously was married to baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet -- but it's Olivier's first, so he must have wanted to go all out.
