Van Hunt is opening up about his relationship with Halle Berry in a new candid interview.
While speaking to “Entertainment Tonight” on Tuesday, the artist revealed how the “Monster’s Ball” actress has positively influenced both his music and his life.
“The inspiration for our relationship goes across everything, even in my parenting,” he told the entertainment news show. “I’m a completely different person, I can say it like that, and I think that it’s improved every aspect of my life.”
The 51-year-old also discussed Berry’s touching Valentine’s Day message, in which she told her followers to never settle for less than they deserve.
“It was well-written, which at least that’s what I like to acknowledge because I don’t know that people know that side of her, because she can write as well,” he said. “You guys are gonna be surprised at all the things that she can do.”
Recently, Berry and her family celebrated his 51st birthday, during which they performed a special ritual in his honor.
“Their family has this ritual where — and I don’t think she would mind me saying it — they get together and have just a small acknowledgment of the day, and so they, you know, they immersed me into that and welcomed me into that and it was just beautiful,” he revealed.
“It was just thoughtful and considerate and sweet and that’s really the kind of person that she is, so it was beautiful.”
Last September, Berry confirmed her relationship with Hunt when she posted a picture of herself wearing a T-shirt with his name.
“now ya know...” she wrote alongside a heart and a foot emoji.
That same month, a source revealed to People magazine that Berry and Hunt have been seeing each other for “several months,” and that Hunt has even met her children: daughter Nahla, 13, and son Maceo, 7.
“They are spending a lot of time at Halle’s Malibu house,” the insider said. “She really seems to enjoy the quiet time. Van has met her kids, so it seems pretty serious.”
A second source says Berry and Hunt “respect each other and have a great deal in common.”
“Both are very successful and smart, and they seem to be in a mature relationship,” the insider continued. “It seems like a really good match.”
Though Berry “has been through a lot of stress in her past relationships,” this one “seems very positive.”
“She is really happy,” the source added.
