WEDDING FAB: Eric Benet And Manuela Testolini Marry...AND Announce THEY'RE PREGNANT!

 

On Sunday, R&B singer Eric Benet married fiancee' of 4 years Manuela Testolini in a lavish ceremony in Newport Beach, Calif.  Get the deets on the couple's fab wedding and finding out what the couple is expecting in a few months inside.....

 

We told you previously about R&B singer (and Halle Berry's ex-hubby) Eric Benet getting engaged to the gorgeous Manuela Testolini (the ex-wife of Prince).  And now the two are officially hitched!

The couple wed in a lavish ceremony in Newport Beach, California this past Sunday.  And it was attended by their celebrity friends Shaun Robinson (shown above with the newlyweds at the ceremony), Samuel L. Jackson and his wife LaTanya Richardson, David Foster and Niecy Nash.

The bride wore a one-of-a-kind Monique Lhuillier dress while the groom donned a Lanvin tuxedo. In addition to the couple writing their own vows, their reception incorporated elements of Eric's Southern roots and Manuela's Egyptian and Italian heritage. 

Also, it was revealed during the reception that the couple is expecting their first child together.  This will be Eric's second child (he also has 18-year-old musician daughter India).

Eric tweeted on his wedding day: "This is one perfect day !!"

And a source joked to Page Six that Eric demanded a "retoss" after his daughter India's boyfriend caught the bride's garter belt. 

Congrats to the couple!

You people love bashing men,

You people love bashing men, the last I check women are still throwing that themseleves on Eric, furthermore Halle has issues and Eric doesnt have to come on to women they jump on him especially when you are with a women who is centered on her stardom and career more than marriage. Eric in no less than any man and the last I check Prince is the biggest freak I know he just knows how to quite people through contracts and power.

Eric has a problem. Never

Eric has a problem. Never liked him since he cheated on Halle, and came up with the excuse he has a sex addiction. He's just an ole doggg. I'll give it two years.

He didnt come up with that

He didnt come up with that excuse, crazy Halle did. He is not an addict...keep up.

Hope he's over his sex

Hope he's over his sex addiction and is ready to be a father to this child. Because from what I understand he wasn't much of a father to his daughter when he was married to Halle. Halle was really the parental figure to that child and then when she divorced Eric, she sort of dumped his daughter too. So sad. Maybe he's ready to act like an adult now. But you can never trust a seriel cheater.

I think they look good

I think they look good together, but I also thought him and Halle looked perfect together...and to all those with the sex addict comments-I think that's just an excuse people when they get caught, and still desire to hold on to their marriage. He and Halle probably could of worked it out if she wasn't worried about public opinion.

Y can't people be happy for

Y can't people be happy for them. Sex addiction is only for Hollywood. Eric even said he was not a sex addict and Halle made it up to save face. I love Halle but something is going on behind the scenes.

Halle, I believe is on at

Halle, I believe is on at least #3. Michael ealy was def after Eric be net. Either way, we have no proof that Eric be net is only on #1 post-Halle. Halle is the famous one people care about!

My Bad it is indeed man #3!

My Bad it is indeed man #3! By Eric and his new wife's honeymoon, Halle will be on to man #4!

Do you really think Halle

Do you really think Halle cares!!!! This man was a sex addict who cheated on Halle!!!! No her daughters father Gabriel is fionne as hell and she aint doing to bad wiht Oliver Martinez...Halle sd she never wants to be married again... So I wish you would not be a hater... Halle is probably estatic he is married, not everyone wishe bad luck on their former mates... Please grow up..smhd
beautifulvirgo's picture

I think Halle cares because

I think Halle cares because if one of her ex's stays in a commited relationship for a very long time, especially if their relationships last longer than any of hers, it shows who was the real problem in the relationship. The fact that Halle's on man #3 shows that maybe she's the one with problem.

Congrats to them both - we

Congrats to them both - we can wish them well without throwing shade at them or their exs for what happened in their respective prior marriages - bottomline, it takes two to make or break a marriage. Everyone seems to have moved on so good for them. Love Eric Benet - the Hollywood scene isn't for everyone and it clearly wasn't for him. I think he's perfectly happy being an independent artist with a core following that doesn't involve the A list red carpet stuff.

you know some people do grow

you know some people do grow up. Most pastors today were pimps and drug dealers. and then there are old fools. People the grow old and not up. My point stop defining people by ONE moment. especially if the moment was in that persons 20's (I KNOW ERIC WASN'T) I said ESPECIALLY not EXCLUSIVELY. For you people that need everything spelled out.

I know Prince mad as shit somewhere....they said he didn't want the divorce. They're a beautiful couple though and they look happy. Good for both of them, because neither exes were easy. I loves me some Halle but I know us Leo chicks. LOL

Manuela is nothing but a

Manuela is nothing but a passed around Hollywood chick. Guess she finally scored a baby so she will have permanent child support after she divorces Eric in about 4 more years. She tried with Prince but he was not having that.
