Salma Hayek and French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, who is the father of her daughter Valentina, have called off their engagement.
The representative of Salma Hayek revealed in a statement: “We are sad to announce the engagement of Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault has been canceled. There will be no further comment.”
The 41-year-old actress revealed that she didn’t feel the “need” to get married. She revealed: “Do I think we are going to get married? Probably. Will it make a difference? I hope not. You want to grow old with someone, you want to have a partner and to have children we have all those things. Some people need the commitment. Maybe we’ll just make the party!”
The celebrity pair kept their relationship low-key since meeting in Venice in May 2006. They announced their engagement as soon as Salma Hayekâ€™s pregnancy news came out. Their baby daughter Valentina was born last September.
The â€œUgly Bettyâ€ producer expressed her desire to have a son, saying: “Probably because I was afraid. I think women suffer a bit more than boys, and there is always conflict between mothers and daughters.”
The actress quickly added: “Now that she’s here, I’m so happy she’s a girl. And I can’t imagine there ever being conflict between us, because I’m in a state of innocence where I love everything she does.”
Valentina is the first child for Salma Hayek; Francois-Henri Pinault, 45, has two children from a previous marriage.
