When you move in the same circles it isn’t unusual that the former other halves of certain couples find each other and decide to get together.

Such a thing has happened to actress Halle Berry whose ex-husband Eric Benet has now married Manuela Testolini, who was previously married to artist Prince.

Eric and Manuela tied the knot in a private ceremony in Southern California on Sunday 31 July 2011 and used the opportunity to announce they’re expecting their first child together. The couple became engaged in November last year after three years of dating when Eric popped the question with an antique diamond ring he’s designed himself.

How the engagement happened? According to Eric he proposed during a romantic dinner when he decided to let Manuela hear ‘Never Want To Live Without You’ – a song he had written for her – by singing it to her and then getting down on one knee to propose.

Berry and Benet divorced in 2005 after four years of marriage while ‘Purple Rain’ hitmaker Prince’s relationship with Manuela ended in 2006.
