‘It Was Finally My Time’: Halle Berry Dishes On Her Relationship With Van Hunt

Ms. Berry has finally found her one.

Celebrity News

We have witnessed Halle Berry go through many ups and downs in love, but it seems like she may have finally found the one. The Bruised star is dating R&B singer Van Hunt and she spoke with ET about the love in her life during ELLE Women in Hollywood Celebration at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, which took place on Tuesday.


"I mean because it's my time. It was finally my time and the right one finally showed up," she shared.

Halle and Van made it Instagram official last September after the actress shared a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt with his name on it. She captioned the photo, "now you know… 🖤🦶🏽."

However, the photo came after Van posted an image of Halle kissing him on the cheek in August. "Kisses land softly," he wrote.

In April 2021, the couple finally made their red carpet debut at the 93rd Academy Awards.

When the Grammy award-winning musician was asked about his relationship with the Academy award-winner, he revealed that she influenced his music. He said:

"I could show you rather than I could tell you, and I will show you really soon, I promise...The inspiration for our relationship goes across everything, even in my parenting. I'm a completely different person, I can say it like that, and I think that it's improved every aspect of my life."

But not everyone was on board with their love. In May, Halle hit back at critics after someone commented under a photo of the couple which said that she loved him more than he loved her. "ummmm don't think so…not this time," Halle responded.

The father of one's personal life seems to be private in comparison to Halle's. The John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum star has been married three times and had very public divorces that followed.

Halle was married to former professional baseball player David Justice from 1993-1997, R&B singer Eric Benét from 2001-2005 and actor Olivier Martinez from 2013-2016, with whom she shares an eight-year-old son, Maceo.

She also has a 13-year-old daughter named Nahla with model Gabriel Aubry, who she had a nasty child support battle with.

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).

The "Coastin'" singer has dropped multiple projects over the last few years to showcase her vocal talent and so far she has been receiving praise for her sultry and jazzy sound. Her most recent project, the 2020 EP Jaguar stayed in the mode of jazz while also infusing sounds that are reminiscent of the '70s.

The beloved comedian grew up in the foster care system and originally wanted to be a foster mom, but with advice from her lawyers, she decided that adoption would be best.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"
