"She is very happy and secure in the relationship," the source tells PEOPLE of the Oscar winner in this week's issue

Halle Berry may not have ended 2021 as a married woman — as she joked on social media — but the actress remains very much in love with her boyfriend Van Hunt.

"Halle has found a soulmate in Van," a film source tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "She feels greatly loved by him. She is very happy and secure in the relationship."

Since making her relationship with the singer, 51, Instagram official in September 2020, Berry has called Hunt "the love of my life" — and the film source thinks he could be "the one" for the Oscar winner.

After spending Christmas together, the couple jetted to the South Pacific island of Bora Bora for New Year's. The Bruised star and director chronicled the trip on Instagram. "Even our feet go together…" she captioned a Dec. 28 snap of their legs intertwined on the water.

Looking ahead to the new year, a third source says of Berry and Hunt, "Their future together is bright."
