"Yes, of course it's true," he decisively told the Miami Herald. Martinez was in South Florida over the weekend to promote his new Miami Beach restaurant, Villa Azur, which opened Saturday, March 10.
While he was on the subject of his bride to be, the French heartthrob took a moment to dispel another rumor surrounding his engagement: the wedding ring's source. Contrary to stories that Berry's emerald and yellow gold ring was designed by acclaimed Turkish jeweler Gurhan Orhan, Martinez says it's actually a French jeweler who made the ring.
"There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring, and it's a lie!" Martinez said. "They have nothing to do with this."
Martinez, 46, explained that Robert Mazlo, a jeweler from his own Parisian neighborhood of St.-Germain-des-Pres, designed Berry's bling, which first popped up on her finger in January. He called Mazlo "a real artist" whose family has been making jewelry for "kings and queens for many centuries."
The French actor and the Oscar-winning actress, 45, met on the set of the 2010 film Dark Tide and soon after got involved off camera.
This will be Berry's third marriage, after David Justice and Eric Benét. She also has a daughter, Nahla, who turns 4 this month, with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. Long known as a ladies' man, Martinez' past girlfriends include Kylie Minogue, Mira Sorvino and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
