I like Halle…a lot.
What’s not to like? She is pretty as flower and represents. Sadly, her love life has been no party. She has been twice married AND divorced. She had sworn off marriage before Olivier (a fellow actor) came along and from the way the dude seems to have bonded with her daughter, it does not look to me like he is in any mad rush to leave. It takes a man who truly loves you to bond with your child like that.
Well, for what its worth, I hope they grow old and grey together. Congratulations Halle! You rock!
The pair tied the knot at the Chateau des Conde in Olivier’s native France on Saturday, UsWeekly reports.
A source confirmed to the publication that the pair are now officially husband and wife.
The blushing bride is reported to have arrived in a vintage car to the sprawling Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France, where white tents had been erected to ensure the couple’s privacy.
Halle, who has been married twice before, reportedly wore a simple cream dress as she arrived in a white limousine.
A source said that a civic ceremony took place at 4.15 and then a religious one in a chapel in the grounds of the chateau at 5.30.
The couple boarded a flight for Paris on Tuesday with Halle’s five-year-old daughter, Nahla, joining them.
Now it appears to be the case that the family were headed to the Renaissance chateau in the Burgundy countryside, around an hour’s drive south of Paris.
Despite Halle previously telling InStyle magazine of her wedding, ‘I do know it will be very small’, it seems that may have been a white lie, judging by the fanfare surrounding the French estate where the wedding was held.
People Magazine have reported that among the 60 guests – thought to be close friends – were the groom’s mother Rosemarie and brother Vincent.
Dinner is said to have been served for the guests at an arbor and there was also a fireworks display.
This is the first marriage for 47-year-old French actor Olivier, who previously dated Kylie Minogue.
It seems to be a change of heart for 46-year-old Halle, who once declared six years ago: ‘I will never, never get married again’.
However, the star laughed as her comments came back to haunt her just last week, when she was quizzed by impending nuptials, saying: ‘I swore it off, right? Never say never, people!’
The pair began dating after meeting on the set of Dark Tides in August 2010, and they announced their engagement less than two years later – in March 2012.
Halle is, of course, pregnant with her first child with 47-year-old Olivier – a son who is due sometime around October.
The couple announced their happy news in April this year, before the proud dad-to-be accidentally let slip that they are having a son.
‘My son will be an American, but I remain French,’ he told People magazine on June 12.
