After a few of her Instagram followers were confused, Halle Berry had to deny that she and Van Hunt had eloped.
While on a romantic holiday, the 55-year-old actress shared a photo of the couple kissing and holding hands inside a chapel, with the former Bond girl wearing a floral crown.
The post is captioned: “well…IT’S OFFICIAL! (sic)”, which led to an influx of comments from well-wishers, including Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who wrote: “Congrats you two!!! Beautiful!!”
On New Year’s Day (01.01.22), however, there is a second selfie of the couple with the comment “It’s 2022!”
Halle stated on Sunday (02.01.22) that they were only joking around, though they appreciated the kind words.
She added in a new post: “We were just having some New Year’s Day fun! People clearly don’t swipe as much as we thought they did. Thank you for the well wishes, tho’, it really touched our hearts.
“Now it’s OFFICIAL, the internet is no longer undefeated. “nomoreswipes4me Januaryfoolsday. (sic)”
The couple initially revealed their romance on Instagram in September 2020, when the Oscar winner posted a photo of herself wearing a T-shirt with the musician’s name embroidered on it.
The ‘Bruised’ director gushed lately that she feels “good” since her fans are so supportive of her relationship with the musician. She has Nahla, 13, with ex-partner Gabriel Aubry and Maceo, eight, from her marriage to third husband Olivier Martinez.
She said: “Aw, that makes me feel good. You know, I think a lot of my [fans], the public, has gone on this journey with me. Whether I liked it or not, my stuff’s been all out in the world.
“And so it’s nice not having people follow the splits and just being happy.”
As per MSN, Halle has previously stated that she feels more “fulfilled” in her life than she has in the past and that she is pleased in all aspects of her life.
She said: “I just feel fulfilled. I feel happy in my life romantically, as a mother, as an artist.
“I’m a much better mother in this circumstance than I would have been having I stayed in a romantic relationship that didn’t serve me and didn’t make me feel the way I need to feel as a woman.”
