Marking her third trip down the aisle, Academy Award-winning actress and expectant mom Halle Berry, 46, married French film star Olivier Martinez, 47, at the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France on Saturday (July 13th), her rep confirms.
The actress was previously married to baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet, and after both marriages ended in divorce due to infidelity, the jaw-dropping beauty vowed to never walk down the aisle again, telling Oprah Winfrey in a 2004 interview, "I will never marry again", and repating those comments to InStyle in 2007.

Halle Berry Is Married
Never say never. Halle Berry is a bride once more.
The expectant Oscar-winner, 46, wed French film star Olivier Martinez, 47, Saturday at the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France, her rep officially confirms to PEOPLE.
The ceremony took place in a small chateau, where, in accordance with French law, a civil union was held (at 4 p.m.), followed by a religious ceremony at 5:30 at the chapel in the village.
Among the 60 people, mostly close friends, in attendance were the groom's mother Rosemarie and brother Vincent. Dinner was held under an arbor, and there was a fireworks display.
Six years ago the Oscar winner told InStyle, "I will never, never get married again." But four days ago the duo boarded a flight to Paris with Berry's daughter, 5-year-old Nahla.
The pair met in 2010 while co-starring in Dark Tide. Although the movie was a flop, their chemistry has been red-hot ever since their romance spilled off-screen.
"She has called him 'The One,' " says Sophie Dulac, president of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival, which the couple attended together in Martinez's native Paris last month. "She's said she never expected to meet this Frenchman, to fall in love like she has."
"They seem truly in love," Dulac also said. "I've known Olivier very well and have never seen him like this."
The crinkle-eyed Frenchman proposed in early 2012 and presented Berry with an emerald engagement ring by Paris designer Robert Mazlo.
In April, the couple revealed they're expecting their first child together – a boy – early this fall, an unexpected joy Berry has called "the biggest surprise of my life." The baby will join big sister Nahla, Berry's daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey.
This marks Berry's third trip down the aisle. She was previously married to baseball player David Justice in the early 1990s and to singer Eric Benét in the early 2000s.
This is a first marriage for Martinez, who previously dated singer Kylie Minogue.
