Van Hunt Jokingly Says He Needs This One Thing to Happen In Order for Him to Tie the Knot with Halle Berry

Van Hunt might be ready to marry Halle Berry under one condition.

On Thursday, Hunt spoke with host Domenick Nati of “The Domenick Nati Show,” where he made a joke about the one thing he needs in order to pop the question to Berry. Nati started by speaking with Hunt about how he and Berry threw everyone for a loop with their New Year’s Day photos. Many interpreted Berry’s post as a way of telling their fans they got married. But days later, Berry said they “were just having some New Year’s Day fun.”

Speaking out about the post for the first time, Hunt wants to make it clear that they “never tried any prank” but the two were “just teasing.” He said, “Trying our very own January Fool’s Day.”

The 55-year-old actress uploaded two photos that day: one of her and Hunt sharing a kiss under what appeared to be an altar, and the second a close-up photo of the two smiling with the words “It’s 2022” underneath. What really made people assume that the two had gotten hitched was Berry’s caption, which read, “well…IT’S OFFICIAL”

Later, after Hunt explained that the two were just “teasing” their fans, Nati asked him if he had intentions on getting married to Berry. Jokingly Hunt said, “Maybe, after ‘Automatic Woman’ is nominated for an Oscar and wins.”

“Automatic Woman” is a song sung by multi-Grammy-winning artist H.E.R. and produced by Hunt. It was added to the soundtrack of Berry’s film “Bruised,” which she starred in and directed.

Despite his harmless joke, it seems that Hunt is just as happy to be with Berry as the “Catwoman” star is to be with him. Since confirming their relationship in September 2020, Berry has not held back about the love and happiness she’s had with Hunt. Hunt is a little more private with their relationship but expresses a great amount of love for her when asked.

He wouldn’t tell Nati how their relationship got started, but he did show gratitude that they have met. Hunt said, “I’m just glad that we met … the opportunity to me is something that I never even dreamed was possible, to begin a relationship at 50. But it’s going really, really well. That’s all I can say.”
