LOVE IS FINALLY HERE!
Speaking to the crowd, she said she has failed at love so many times, but due to the numerous failures, she now recognizes how true love feels.
She then turned to her beau and thanked him for always supporting and lifting her. She disclosed that she's never had someone in her life that made her feel complete as Hunt did.

Berry and her boyfriend became official in September 2020. At the time, they had been seeing each other for several months, and Hunt had already met Berry's son Maceo, 8, and daughter Nahla, 13.
Speaking to Women's Health, People reports Berry to have gushed over her man, saying now more than ever, she is a better mother, and Hunt makes her feel like a woman should. She added:
"I wish I had met him sooner so I could have loved him longer. I just feel fulfilled. I feel happy in my life romantically, as a mother, as an artist."
BROKEN MARRIAGES AND FAILED RELATIONSHIPS
She says she has waited for love for so long, and she finally found it. Before she met Hunt, Berry had suffered through a series of broken marriages and relationships.
Her first marriage was to former baseball outfielder David Justice between 1992 and 1997, then to neo-soul singer Eric Benét from 2001 to 2005.
After the couple split, Berry began dating Canadian model Gabriel Aubry and together, they had daughter Nahla. They, however, never got married.
After her split from Aubry in 2010, Berry got into a relationship with film actor Olivier Martinez and married in 2013. Her third marriage was a flop, and after only two years, they split. They share a son Maceo.
The "Monster's Ball" star admitted that for years, she felt guilty and responsible for her failed romances and marriages and even at one point said she no longer believed in fairy tales.
Having been through so many tumultuous relationships and heartbreak, it is no wonder Berry is savoring the happiness her relationship with Hunt has brought her.
