Salma Hayek has broken off her engagement with billionaire François-Henri Pinault, her rep has confirmed.

"We are sad to announce the engagement of Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault has been canceled," Salma's rep tells USA Today. "There will be no further comment."

The couple welcomed daughter Valentina Paloma in September, six months after announcing their pregnancy and engagement.

The French-based François-Henri, CEO of fashion conglomerate PPR which has such labels as Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci under its belt, started dating the actress in 2006. In April, Salma asserted she didn't feel any need to tie the knot yet, as the two were happy with their current lifestyle.

"You want to grow old with someone, you want to have a partner and to have children — we have all those things," she told Glamour.
