OLIVIER Martinez has confirmed his engagement to Halle Berry.

The 46-year-old French actor - who met Halle on the set of 'Dark Tide' in 2010 - has finally gone public with their plans to marry.

Asked about the engagement, he said: " Yes, of course it's true."

Speaking ahead of the opening of his new restaurant, Villa Azur, in Miami on Saturday (10.03.12), he also set the record straight about who designed the 'New Year's Eve' actress' emerald and yellow gold ring.

Jewellery designer Gurhan claimed to be the brains behind the ring in a statement to People Magazine, but Olivier says it was actually created by Parisian jeweller Robert Mazlo - who he says has been making jewellery for, "kings and queens for many centuries".

Talking to the Miami Herald newspaper, he explained: "There is a jeweller taking credit for doing the ring and it's a lie!

"They have nothing to do with this."

It will be the first marriage for Olivier - who has previously dated Kylie Minogue and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Halle, 45 - who has daughter Nahla, three, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry - was married to former baseball player David Justice from 1993 to 1997 and to singer Eric Benet from 2001 to 2005.
