He used to be renowned for his reputation as a serial womaniser.
But since striking up a relationship with Hollywood actress Halle Berry, it seems Olivier Martinez has become far more paternal in his ways.
The 45-year-old French actor was spotted playing the role of doting stepdaddy with Halle's three-year-old daughter Nahla.
