After months and perhaps even years of speculation, it is finally official: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (or Brangelina as they’ve been dubbed) are engaged to be married. The couple, who met at the filming of Mr & Mr Smith seven years ago, have previously said that they wouldn’t tie the knot until it was equal for everyone.
Earlier in the year, Pitt told US media that the couple has been ‘getting a lot of pressure from the kids’ to get married. And it now seems that the pressure from their six children finally became the deciding factor.
According to the couple’s rep, there isn’t a wedding date yet, but the ring that Angelina was seen wearing last week is ‘a promise for the future’. The most talked about piece of jewellery in La La Land isn’t any off-the-shelf kind of thing either.
Pitt has been working with jeweller Robert Procop for a year to design the sparkler. Commenting on the collaboration a statement from Procop said: “Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized 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,” the statement continued. “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.”
As mentioned there is still no news about when the Hollywood power couple will wed or what style of wedding they will have and where in the world it will happen. Our bet is on a more subdued event rather than a Kardashian-esque extravaganza (both Brad and Angelina have been married previously), and somewhere that means something to the couple – and their children. Perhaps Cambodia, Ethiopia, Namibia, Vietnam or Nice where the couple’s children were born/adopted from…
Also unknown is the design of Angelina’s wedding dress. We think she’d look stunning in a vintage gown, only with less leg on display than at the recent Oscar’s.
