It’s official! Finally, after eight years and six children together, Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are engaged to be married.
“Yes, it’s confirmed,” Cynthia Pett-Dante, Pitt’s manager, told USA TODAY in a statement. “It is a promise for the future, and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
Beverly Hills jeweller Robert Procop worked closely with Pitt in creating a custom-made diamond engagement ring, which Jolie wore for the first time last night at a private viewing of the new Chinese Art collection at the LA County Museum.
“Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realised over a yearlong collaboration with Robert. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so Robert was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suit Angelina’s hand,” Procop said in a statement.
“Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”
Their six children are reportedly “very happy” at the news.
In December 2011, Jolie told Nightline that the kids had been asking why she and their dad weren’t married, because “people get married in the movies.”
Earlier this year, Pitt told CBS News they were “getting a lot of pressure from the kids” to tie the knot.
“It means something to them,” he said. “We will (get married) someday, we will. It’s a great idea. ‘Get mommy a ring.’ ‘Okay, I will, I will.’ ”
Jolie, 36, and Pitt, 48, met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2004 and have three adopted children – Maddox, 10; Pax, 8; and Zahara, 7. They also have three biological children – Shiloh, 5; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 3.View Comments
