Hollywood's hottest couple have confirmed their engagement! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who have been together since 2005, are tying the knot... and soon! In addition, the pair has reportedly chosen the perfect location for their wedding - their £35 million 16th century French château.
The couple, who once famously declared they would not wed until gay marriage was legalised in the United States, have finally succumbed to the pressure of their children.
"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 Pitt's spokeswoman Cynthia Pett-Dante said.
Jolie was seen, earlier this month, wearing a ring on her wedding finger when she visited the Chinese Art collection at the Los Angeles County Museum with partner Pitt and their son Pax. According to a report in the Daily Mail, famous Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop designed the engagement ring after a yearlong collaboration with Pitt.
"Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realised over a yearlong collaboration. 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 Angelina's hand," Procop was quoted as saying, "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."
The duo are parents to six children (three adopted) and are known for supporting a range of humanitarian causes.
Jolie was previously married to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, while the "Moneyball" actor earlier had been married to actress Jennifer Aniston. The couple reportedly became close on the sets of the movie "Mr & Mrs Smith", while Pitt was still married to Aniston.
Jolie's father, actor Jon Voight, has revealed that he is very happy about news of his daughter being engaged to her long-time partner.
"I'm very happy for them," Voight told Us Magazine.
