The actress poked a little fun at the situation, including the following hashtags; #nomoreswipes4me #Januaryfoolsday

In a guest appearance on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” back in November 2021, Berry shared she did have a commitment ceremony after her 8-year-old Maceo Martinez (with ex-husband Olivier Martinez) said she and Hunt should get married.  

“It was a ceremony by an 8-year-old in the back seat of the car who said, ‘Mom, you should get married to him.’ And I said, ‘Really, I should marry him?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, I pronounce you man and wife.’ We were like, ‘Oh, OK. We’re married.’ But we’re not married. So, that’s our commitment ceremony.”

Berry and Hunt, a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist, and record producer, have dated for over a year.

I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer for the couple to wed officially.
