“Yes, it’s confirmed,” Cynthia Pett-Dante, Pitt’s manager, told USA Today. “It is a promise for the future, and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
Six kids later, Brad has finally decided to put a ring on it. Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop confirmed that he helped Brad, 48, design a custom diamond engagement ring for Angelina, 36.
And what a rock it is --so sparkly! It took time and thought for Brad to design the ring, we can imagine there were a few beard strokes as he schemed and plotted how to please his screen goddess. “Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized 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,” Robert 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.”
With the engagement, the Jolie-Pitt brood is getting its happily-ever-after wish: Mom and Dad are making their union legal, just like Shrek and Fiona. They must not forget their fairytale meeting on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith either, oh so traditional!
Back in December, Ange said that the kids had been asking why she and their dad weren’t official because, after all, “people get married in the movies.”
Ange’s excuse for waiting around to say “I Do”: “You don’t have to be married to be committed to a partner or your family. We’ve explained to them that our commitment, when we decided to start a family, was the greatest commitment you could possibly have,” she said. “Once you have six children, you’re committed.”
As if we hadn’t gathered that the kids rule the Jolie-Pitt roost, with their constant rough and tumble and junk food ways, they have demanded their parents get hitched --and more Cheetos please. Brad has said previously that they were “getting a lot of pressure from the kids.”
“It means something to them,” he said. “We will (get married) someday, we will. It’s a great idea. ‘Get mommy a ring.’ ‘OK, I will, I will.’”
And so he did. Fist pump Shiloh!
