Sounds like Halle Berry has learned her lesson.

The Oscar winning actress once swore she'd "never, never" get married again. Then Olivier Martinez entered her life.

Dating since 2010, Us Weekly broke the news in January that the French actor, 46, had proposed to Berry--who has been married twice before, to baseball player David Justice and R&B singer Eric Benet--over the holidays.

Still, Berry, 45, had refused to confirm her and Martinez's happy news until now.

Opening up to Extra at an event Saturday, the Dark Tide star laughed when asked about her engagement to Martinez. "Who knew? I swore [marriage] off, right?"

Added Berry, "Never say never, people!"

Martinez, for his part, finally confirmed the couple's engagement in March, telling Miami.com, "Yes, of course we're engaged!"

Prior to meeting the actor-turned-restauranteur, a source told Us that Berry really had "given up" on marriage--but changed her tune as soon as she got to know Martinez, and saw how wonderful a father he would make to Nahla, her 4-year-old daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.

"She trusts Olivier," the source shared. "He makes her feel safe. He's a keeper!"
