For those you of who have been living under a gossip-free-rock, 46-year-old Oscar winning actress Halle Berry and finance Olivier Martinez are expecting a baby boy.

Many think of Martinez as that guy with anger management issues.  The guy who brawled with Berry’s ex-lover Gabriel Aubry and countless paparazzos, the guy who is in the news more for his explosive temper than his movie resume.  Worse there are some who view the 47-year-old as an extension of Berry and her global fame. 

Not so. 

Martinez has been acting for the last 23-years and was deemed one of France’s “Most Promising Actors” and at times referred to as the “French Brad Pitt”.  He started his career in French films and made his cross-over to U.S. films some 13-years ago.  His most notable role was in 2002’s “Unfaithful” alongside Diane Lane. 

His more recent projects, like the 2011 thriller ‘Dark Tide’ co-starring Berry, have not garnered the headlines or audience that his relationships have.  He has been linked to models, singers and actresses most notably Mira Sorvino, Julie Binoche, and Kylie Minogue.  In 2012 the actor opened the swanky “Villa Azure” in South Beach, Miami. 

Martinez is French-born with to a Spanish-Moroccan father and French mother raised in a strict working class Catholic household.  He studied at the prestigious French National Conservatory of Dramatic Art.

Berry and Martinez met in the fall of 2010, and became engaged in 2011. Martinez will be a father for the first time while Berry has a five-year-old daughter, Nahla, with Aubry.
