In the past, Halle Berry has been open about the fact that she doesn't necessarily need a romantic partner. Even though she wasn't looking for one, though, it appears she may have found a significant other. After months of teasing her Instagram followers about a new romance, Halle may have finally clarified who she's dating, although even her more recent posts haven't been totally clear.
Who is Halle Berry dating now?
In a recent Instagram post, Halle photographed herself in a black T-shirt with the logo of singer Van Hunt. In the caption, Halle wrote "now ya know... ♥️🦶🏽."
The foot emoji was a reference to several previous photos that Halle has posted on her Instagram. The first came in July, when she posted a photo of two pairs of feet cuddling up with one another. A month later, the actress posted another photo along the same lines.
At the time she originally posted those images, it was unclear who the other pair of feet belonged to. Now, Halle has posted a cryptic image that seems to clarify that the other feet belong to Van. The singer has also teased a relationship on his Instagram. In recent months, he's shared several photos of himself looking into the camera as a woman kisses his cheek. The photos look like Halle, but they're fuzzy enough to cast doubt.
Who is Van Hunt?
Now that Halle and Van are apparently dating, many fans of the actress want to know more about her new partner. Van has been active in the music world since his self-titled debut in 2004, and he's also won a Grammy. Although he's not an A-list act, Van has carved out a successful career for himself as an R&B musician who draws from a wide array of influences.
Halle Berry recently said she wasn't looking for a relationship.
Although she now seems to be in a happy relationship, just a few months ago, Halle said she wasn't actively looking for love. The actress is the mother to two children who are 12 and 6, and she had those children with two different partners. In an April conversation with Lena Waithe, Halle revealed that her priority through the early part of quarantine had been focusing on her relationship with them.
“I’ve learned a lot being with my children. They are the best company for me right now, and when I divorced Maceo’s dad I’ve been pretty alone by myself going on three years now,” she said at the time. “Decidedly so, for sure.” Halle said that in the past she'd always been looking for a relationship, but now, she felt like she wanted to take time to focus on other things.
“I have decided to take time," she continued. "I’m very much a relationship-oriented person, I always want to be with someone. But I decided, no I’m going to slow my roll, I’m going to take a minute and I’m going to spend time with me.”
Now, it seems that Halle is ready to be a part of a new relationship.
