Does Halle Berry have a new love in her life? The Monster’s Ball actress fueled dating rumors after she shared another photo cuddling up with her mystery man over the weekend.
“Waking up Vegas! Thank you for all the beautiful birthday wishes from my friends and my very supportive and loyal fans!” the 54-year-old beauty wrote alongside a photo her feet intertwined with her potential boyfriend’s legs on Sunday, August 16. “You ALL helped to make my birthday extra special.”
Fans were dying to know the identity of her mystery man as they flooded Halle’s comments with tons of messages. “[God] dang, when can we meet Mr. Big?” one user jokingly asked, while another gushed, “Halle got a date date!!! Enjoyyyyyy!” A third chimed in, writing, “You are all kinds of boo-ed up.”
The Catwoman actress first sparked speculation of a new man when she uploaded a photo of the pair cuddling in a outdoor daybed in July. “Sunday funday,” Halle captioned her post at the time. Although she gave no indication of who the suitor might be, the Golden Globe proved their bond is special with a single red heart emoji at the end of her caption.
It seems the legendary movie star may be ready for love after she previously opened up about marriage and relationships in April. At the time, Halle said she was embracing being single so she could focus on being the best mom to her two kids. The doting parent shares daughter Nahla, 12, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, and son Maceo, 6, from her marriage with ex-husband Olivier Martinez.
“I decided … I’m going to slow my roll, I’m going to take a minute and I’m going to spend time with me,” Halle explained of being single during an Instagram video chat with friend Lena Waithe. “And it’s been so great!” The John Wick 3 star said although she “decided to take time” off from dating, she’s “very much a relationship-oriented person.”
Because Halle “always [wants] to be with someone,” she isn’t willing to pass up on love as long as the timing is right. “I no longer feel the need for a relationship, so I don’t feel the need to rush or accept something that’s not totally right for me,” she insisted. “Not that anything’s wrong with the people I’ve been with, but I’m going to wait for my match or I will stay solo and be with my kids and do my life the way I’m doing it.”
The Academy Award winner — who was also previously married to Eric Benét from 2001 to 2005 and to David Justice from 1993 to 1997 — explained why she had no qualms about taking herself out of the dating scene for a bit.
“I think the next relationship I have, I think I will have a better chance of attracting and choosing what’s right for me because I’ve taken this time to think about what’s important to me,” she gushed.
It looks like we’ll have to see if Halle ends up introducing this man to her fans!
