They have always said that they’ll get married when gay marriage becomes legal in all states. However, it seems that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt weren’t able to hold out – the couple is officially engaged. The rumour has been confirmed after Angelina was spotted wearing a huge diamond ring on her left hand this week.
Brad’s manager said 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. Brad designed the ring.”
The pair have been dating since 2005 and have six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are engaged, the actor’s manager confirmed today.
Jolie, 36, was seen wearing a massive diamond ring on her left hand Wednesday night at a museum event in Los Angeles, sparking rumours that a wedding was on the horizon.
Beverly Hills jeweller Robert Procop revealed that he created the ring and said Pitt was “heavily” involved in the design process.
“Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realised over a yearlong collaboration,” Mr Procop told The Hollywood Reporter.
“He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suite [sic] Angelina’s hand,” added Mr Procop, who previously collaborated with the actress for “The Style of Jolie” jewellery collection, which she has worn at red carpet events and in the 2010 film The Tourist.
Earlier this year, Brad confessed that he couldn’t wait in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter: ‘We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out.’
In the same interview, he said their six children were one of the significant factors behind his change of heart, saying: ‘It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.’
Back in December, Jolie also told Nightline that the kids had been asking why she and their dad weren’t official because “people get married in the movies.”
