After 7 years of unwedded bliss, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have suddenly announced they’re engaged to be married.
Angelina Jolie, 36, and Brad Pitt, 48, a Hollywood megastar couple since 2005, are engaged, Pitt’s representative – Cynthia Pett-Dante, Pitt’s manager, disclosed in a statement.
“Yes, it’s confirmed! It is a promise for the future, and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
She also confirmed that Pitt designed the ring.
The longtime couple had been insisting that they wouldn’t marry unless the nation’s laws allowed all couples to marry — but admitted their children were pressuring them to tie the knot.
Jewelry designer Robert Procop of Beverly Hills, California, designed the diamond engagement ring after a yearlong collaboration with Pitt, his representative said.
Pitt and Jolie met on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” back in 2005. They have three biological children (the twins Vivienne and Knox, and daughter Shiloh) and three adopted children (Maddox, Pax, and Zahara).
This will be Brad’s second marriage and Angelina’s third. Angelina was previously married to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton. Brad was previously married to Jennifer Aniston.
