According to the spokeswoman of the couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got engaged and they will get married. Although at this point there is no exact date set for the wedding, their children are more than happy about their decision.
A diamond ring for the history
A little while ago Angelina was spotted with a huge diamond engagement ring on her finger. Since then people started speculating that they are ready to make the big move and now it is confirmed.
Angelina and Brad attended a private viewing at a museum together with their son, Pax. She wore on her left hand a rectangular diamond ring. When the photo was released to the press, people got curious about the jewel design.
Robert Procop, a jewelry designer, said that he worked on the ring together with Brad and it was specially designed for Angelina.
It was about time
We can’t say that he hurried with the decision. Probably he decided that he wanted to marry her quite a while ago, but the creation of the jewel took about a year. After that he had to wait for the perfect moment to unveil this piece of special jewelry.
Family time but no marriage
It is interesting to note that the two became a couple in 2005 and they are raising six children together, but they never got married. At some point Brad Pitt said that they won’t get married until gay marriages become legal in the U. S. However in January they claimed that they were under a lot of pressure because of their three biological and three adopted children.
Children were the decisive factor
It looks like their marriage becomes more and more important to their children. Pitt said that they made that declaration quite a while ago, but they won’t be able to hold out that long. They wanted to get married when everybody else could.
He added that marriage means a lot to their children. It also means something to him. He thinks that being in love with someone, having children with someone and not being able to marry them is ridiculous.
Was the idea of marriage scary?
Angelina and Brad got close during the filming of the movie ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’. After this Brad divorced his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. Angelina also had two previous marriages that didn’t really last long, to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.
It looks like this time they found true love and if everything goes well they will be able to raise their children together without any further complications as the real family that they already are.
