Last time we reported on the alleged engagement of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, we were dead wrong (thanks alot, Us Weekly), but today we can say with absolute certainty that the ultimate A-list couple is ENGAGED. For realsies, y’all. And it turns out Brad has been planning for a year. The deets:
After rumors swirled this morning, Brad’s manager Cynthia Pett-Dante just confirmed the engagement:
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 confirmation came shortly after Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop told The Hollywood Reporter that Brad has been working on the ring’s design for an entire year (swoon!):
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. 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.
Angie was seen wearing the ring 2 nights ago at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, but who would have believed that it was actually for real this time?! The couple has been denouncing marriage (until “all couples could get married”) until only recently, when Brad admitted to Matt Lauer that they’d probably tie the knot — for their 6 kids.
