Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie really are engaged. For real this time.

No really. For real this time. This story is courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, and was then confirmed by People Magazine, not a tabloid. THR started things off with an exclusive photo – go here to see it – of Angelina wearing a pretty decent-sized diamond-looking ring on her left hand. THR says the ring was designed by Robert Procop, and it’s totally an engagement ring. Totally! Because Brad’s manager Cynthia Pett-Dante just told People Magazine, “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.”

Who is Robert Procop? He’s about to be a household name, we predict.

The Beverly Hills jeweler and former CEO of Asprey & Garrard, the British jewelry company to the English royal family, confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that he has designed an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie. A rep for the jeweler says, “I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt.”

Jolie was seen wearing the ring two nights ago, April 11, at a private viewing of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Chinese Galleries. She attended the small gathering with Pitt as well as their son Pax. Neither the ring nor the engagement has been confirmed by Jolie’s representatives, who could not immediately be reached for comment.

Procop tells THR: “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.”

If Pitt and Jolie truly are engaged — long hinted at by every tabloid and weekly imaginable — it makes sense that Procop would be the designer who would have created the ring with Pitt. Procop’s “The Style of Jolie” jewelry collection on his website was designed with the star, and she’s worn a multitude of his pieces on the red carpet, including to this year’s Producers Guild Awards. The first funds from Procop’s collaboration with Jolie have been dedicated to the Education Partnership for Children in Conflict to build a school in Afghanistan. Procop also created pieces of jewelry for Jolie for The Tourist.

Procop’s had one very good week: When Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan stepped out for the L.A. premiere of The Avengers for the first time since the Feb. 7 birth of their son, Downey told the press he and his wife were wearing amethyst jewelry from Procop in honor of their son’s birthstone. Downey also wore a purple Gucci suit, and the couple joked that they were bringing a little bit of their new son Exton with them.

News of the potential engagement should come as no surprise to readers of The Hollywood Reporter. In January, Pitt told THR that he and Jolie did hope to one day tie the knot for the sake of their children.

“We’d actually like to,” he said of making Jolie his wife, “and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”

At the time, Pitt declined to comment on whether he had proposed yet. “I’m not going to go any further,” he said, “But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.”

By the way, in case you were all, “Who the eff is Robert Procop again?” He is not just some mangy famewhore jewelry designer – he actually knows Angelina Jolie. They worked together on “The Style of Jolie” jewelry line, remember that? So, is it on? Perhaps. I want a better look at the ring, though. It looks like a gigantic emerald-cut diamond. Nice.

Anyway, I’m very happy for them. Good for them. OMG FLOWER GIRLS!!! Vivienne and Zahara will totally be flower girls. Shiloh will fight it. She’ll want to be a groomsman. EPIC!

(You know this is totally about The Leg. And Michael Fassbender. Of course. And please, people – try not to go overboard talking about She Who Shall Not Be Named.)

    I logged on just to see if you guys had covered this “rumour”!

    This is awesome. I am very happy for the both of them and their kids :)

  2. mame says:

    Congrats to them. I like them.

  3. annerox says:

    i think this is just a way to shut the kids up.

    • luls says:

      More like a way to shut the world up.

      About damn time too. It got really annoying hearing them talk about it over & over again for 7 years, without anything ever happening.

      Maybe now everyone can calm the fudge down?

    • cat1 says:

      I was hoping they’d hold out. Teach the kids that marriage is not really that important. If you feel your relationship is special then why do you need the state or church to make that ‘official?’ I guess I don’t get it. I understand for some people having that ceremony and statement might be important but, for them, who (technically) have so much (are lauded every day, don’t really ‘need’ societal ‘trappings’ or more making them feel good about themselves, certainly have security), what’s the big deal? Seems weird to me.

      Anyway. I guess if it means that much for the kids. I mentioned this to someone and they said maybe there’s other reasons. They do seem like they PLAY THE MEDIA. My friend wondered if it could be for tax reasons. I have no idea. Whatever, at this point.

  4. birdie says:

    A JenJustin outing in 3..2..1

  5. Anna says:

    Yaaay Best celeb news i’ve heard for a long time – Congrats.

  6. Aqua says:

    They may be engaged but the real question is when are they getting married?It will be a field day for reporters and photogs alike.

  7. Linda says:

    So happy for them and the kids

  8. sup says:

    i know i don’t know them and never will, this has nothing to do with my life, etc etc but… i’m just so glad to receive these news! congrats and hope they’ll be happy together forever :)

  9. Anaya says:

    Congrats to Brad & Angie!! <3 :)

  10. Agnes says:

    congrats! hottest celebrity couple ever! :)

  11. Meow Mix says:

    Can’t wait to see what she wears.

  12. watchingyoubeytch says:

    best news of the year

  13. Janet says:

    Congratulations to both of them! I hope they sneak off somewhere and get married quietly, and then sell all the wedding pics to People magazine. Madd can be the ring bearer and Vivienne and Z will make lovely flower girls.

  14. olivia says:

    I think hey both planned this engagement story, and decided to do it, because think about it, they can milk this forever. Tabloids will forever be guessing when the wedding is, so they’ll have false flags of various wedding dates, and it’ll keep going and going. They can no longer milk the triangle, because Jen virtually took herself out if, by saying she has no beef with her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, so this is their new milking technique to keep themselves in the public eye. I can just see it now, In Touch with the headlines, is the wedding happening this weekend, then a month later, Wedding is on, then the next month, Wedding confirmed, etc. So they’re essentially getting an indefinitely milkable story with this engagement.

    • Ducky La Rue says:

      Well, you could always stop paying attention to them. I’m sure that would stop them in their tracks.

      • ZenB!tch says:

        If we all did, it would. I saw it on CNN and immediately came here to see the comments. I love the people here – the ones I agree with and the ones I don’t. It’s all about the comments to me.

      • Ducky La Rue says:

        @ZenB!tch: Oh, I definitely enjoy the commentary as well. And I’ve been reading this site way back before the Unholy Triangle began (lurking more than posting), so I feel like I know some of the commentators as well.

        And for those that hate Brad & Angelina: if you pay attention to everything they do, then it seems counterproductive to bemoan the fact that people pay attention to everything they do. If you really want them to disappear, then the best recourse is to stop paying attention.

        But as for me – yup, I’ll still be here, paying attention and reading the comments. :-)

    • Rhea says:

      Even waaayy BEFORE this engagement, In Touch always making up a story about them getting married. Please, if you want to blame someone then blame the media for keep making up a BS stories about them.

    • Navy Blue says:

      Definitely. They try to act like they are above responding to rumors. Why announce the. Engagement It is just courting more press. Just run off and get married when you are ready.

  15. mia girl says:

    I just came in to write how happy I am for so many of my fellow posters at Celebitchy who are big fans of the Brange. I am sincerely happy for you all. :)

    Oh and congrats to Jolie, Pitt and their kids too

    • ZenB!tch says:

      It’s all about us. I’m looking forward to Aniston’s move – not because I care but because I want to see what the Celebitches have to say about whatever she does.

      It’s about the commentary here for me.

      Congrats Brange fans! Aniston fans, I am rooting for you to get a bite next.

      • Miffy says:

        GASP!!! It’s so predictable, so obvious, so perfect. Aniston will get pregnant and do many, many interviews about how happy she is, how it’s something she’s dreamed of since she was a child and how conceiving was so difficult for her and that affected previous relationships *side-eye to that wife-ditching bastard Pitt*. I’m actually on the edge of my seat for this one.

      • Josey B says:

        Heh, maybe she’s already pregnant and the ring is the Brange’s way of stealing her headlines. Cuz you know that both sides play this game, don’t you?

  16. Toot says:

    How is this about “the leg” or anything else when the jeweler said that he and Brad have been working on the ring for a year?

    I’m happy for them. Congrats.

  17. mimi says:

    So I guess they hate gays now? They were just so smug & self-righteous about it, “look at us and our committment to civil rights”. Pissed. Me. Off!

  18. PrettyTarheel says:

    Is it wrong of me to be smiling like it’s someone I know personally? I mean, I have been a fan, but I shouldn’t be this excited about this. I am worried about myself.

  19. aquarius64 says:

    Congrats I guess, but I kinda feel sorry for Jennifer Aniston right now. The media is going to be on her like a hawk with this, gaging her reaction. She’ll put on a brave front, but given her behavior over the years this has to sting.

  20. the other mel says:

    I think it’s wonderful, I love the Brange and the whole fan-damily!

  21. waq says:

    She can do better. Oh, well Congrats to the dirty hobo and Angelina.

  22. Rita says:

    So, I guess Brad has finally moved on from Jen. Wonder if she’ll be a bride’s maid?

  23. mln76 says:

    Aww that’s really sweet I’m sure there are a lot of heads spinning on both sides but it just confirms what the fans know they are in it for the long haul.

    Also I love how they handle the gossip. Whenever they are this quiet you best believe something major is going down ALSO they just cockblocked JT and Biel big time.

  24. Janet says:

    I very much doubt this came about because of The Leg, when the jeweler said Brad gave him the design a year ago.

  25. zombieunicorn says:

    He got her a toe engagement ring for her right leg, as well.

  26. Meanchick says:

    Somewhere Jeniston is devouring cartons of Haagen Daz and eating cookie dough. TeeHee! Congrats

  27. Jade says:

    Oh how sweet! My not-so-favourite couple of attention whores is getting married! The bells are ringing, the doves are flying to the heaven, orphans of the world are getting ready to throw white rose petals. Congrats!!!

  28. Meanchick says:

    I still think ‘the leg’ was Angie teasing Stacy Kiebler.

  29. Reece says:

    Awww! Sweet. The kids finally wore them down huh? :-)
    On another note, about damn time, they’ve been talking about forever!

  30. Trillium says:

    I hope it’s not a blood diamond.

    But I guess if you’re buying non-conflict diamonds it would be Canadian diamonds or something, right? Like from the diamond mines on native land where the natives on the reserves don’t even have working schools, housing or clean running water?

    Is there such thing as an ethical diamond?

    • sup says:

      well apparently they can produce diamonds and it doesn’t harm the environment either.

    • Hipocricy says:

      There is no such thing as a ‘blood diamond’ today.

      Blood diamond has been named as such namely for countries of western africa like Sierra Leon who had ungoing wars with different parties suported by westerrn industries to get those diamonds. Those diamonds were tainted with african blood.

      Those wars have been over for years now and a relative peace has been installed, hence the ‘blood diamond’ concept is obsolete today.

      I would say that considering the 5 millions of people in eastern congo who have died during the war supported and fed by neighbouring Ouganda and Rwanda,that a concept of BLOOD TENTAL. should have been built instead.

      But then again, since we all use cellphones, smartphone, I phones, we all supported that mass killing of epic proportion, at least indirectly.

      Not to sound cynical with that overbid in killings, but war for the tental have killed 10,000 more than blood diamonds ever did.

      • Isa says:

        There is a diamond mine in Arkansas where you can dig up your own! It’s kind of fun. There have been some pretty decent ones found.

      • Josey B says:

        Yes there are. Blood diamonds are not about “African blood”, it’s about the profits of illicit diamond sales going to finance civil war. Read the Kimberley process. At the moment, there are diamonds coming out of the Ivory Coast that are most certainly “blood diamonds”. And although the scope of the Kimberley Process doesn’t cover corrupt government officials forcing slave labour to mine confiscated diamond fields for their own personal gain, that is what is happening in Zimbabwe.

        I’m actually rather surprised that Brad chose a diamond, which as a gemstone is a rather boring conventional one, rather than something more interesting. I would have thought that a top grade Russian Alexandrite “emerald by day, ruby by night” would have been far more apt for someone along the lines of Jolie, who has a well-known love of emeralds. What better than a very rare and expensive colour change stone for someone who has managed to reinvent herself from a brother-kissing, drug using, bi-sexual wild child into St. Angelina? Diamonds are so… white bread, follow the packish.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      I highly doubt that Brad would buy Angelina a “Blood Diamond;” and if he did, I highly doubt she’d wear it.

  31. elvynn says:

    Mes felicitations au couple.
    By the way, I think they will be married this summer or fall because they are doing some works in their french house and are building a Chapel. So… This summer or at the end of every work.

  32. Folly says:

    I am sooooo happy for them,this is such a good news for kaiser and all the brangelina in the house,and also to the tabloids,this is going to give them a lot to write about

  33. Esmom says:

    Maybe Brad decided he finally needed to make an honest woman out of Angie after she signed up to work with the Fassdong. Totally kidding, just tying back to today’s earlier post. Geez I have gotten nothing done today, workwise. Thanks CB! :)

  34. Folly says:

    I am sooooo happy for them,this is such a good news for kaiser and all the brangelina fans in the house,and also to the tabloids,this is going to give them a lot to write about

  35. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them. The ring looks pretty, I like emerald cuts.

    I am groaning inwardly though at the onslaught of tabloid nonsense about the wedding we will now be buried in.

  36. Hipocricy says:

    Congrats to the both of them.

    It must feel wonderful and so emotional to see your parents getting married. Wonder if John Voight will bring her to the aisle. I am sure Jolie’s mother would be truly missed that day.

  37. Moi1 says:

    These two crazy kids are meant to be together. Congrats to them. :-)

  38. lisa says:

    I have to admit.. I feel like someone I know just told me they are engaged. I’m so happy for them. Really over the moon. They have been hinting.. Love that Brad designed the ring and has been working on it for over a year. Hope they are happy. I bet the kids are over the moon. Nice..

  39. La.uren says:

    Congrats to Brad & Waxy Angie. Seriously, A. looks like a wax figure in the Niagara Falls wax museum. I hope they do not get divorced for the children’s sake.

  40. ZenB!tch says:

    Did I miss something? Unless they are planning a really long engagement, marriage equality has not been achieved. The case out here in Cali is headed to the Supreme Court.

    I seem to remember that was their excuse – they wouldn’t marry until everyone could.

  41. Moreaces says:

    Congratulations, I am very happy for them and the kids. Cool

  42. Ravensdaughter says:

    Congratulations, you two. I am sure the kids are furiously planning the wedding as we speak!

  43. nan says:

    Yeeaaaah,congrats. Happy for them!!!

  44. lisa says:

    Funny how the spin starts. So now the none fans are waving the gay marriage thing.. or before they were saying Angie was not loved enough and Brad didn’t want to marry her. LOL.

    just changing digs. If you don’t like them fine. Stop all the negative because now you are eating crow.

    • Josey B says:

      It was Pitt who loudly and oh so politically correctly announced that they wouldn’t get married until everybody could, no doubt because it made a good sound bite and not out of political conviction. Not the “non-fans”.

      Because let’s face it… if you believe in something so strongly that you feel the need to take a public stand on the issue, isn’t that also a value you should be teaching your kids to stand up for too?

      • lisa says:

        Wow and now you naysayers are all over it. when before you were all crying how he only cared to marry his ex.

        whatever.. they are getting married. and I for one don’t give a rat’s ass about what was said or done before.

        Congrats to a wonderful couple and a long happy life for them and their family.

        and you can also teach your kids that you can change you mind and still support the cause.

      • Josey B says:

        Ah yes, the old “Do as I say, not as I do” principle. We all know how well that works.

  45. claire says:

    Good for them. I like them together.

  46. foozy says:

    sooooooooooooo happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! congratulations to the happy couple!!!!! can’t believe it. it finally happened!

  47. gemmaa says:

    They’ll sneak away and get married w’out inviting all of their besties (us), mark my words. OR…..they’ve already done the deed.

  48. thinkaboutit says:

    I’m such a loser — I actually got tears in my eyes!

  49. samira677 says:

    Haters are so stupid. For seven years the tabloids have been running engagement/wedding rumors. It doesn’t make senseto claim it’s a publicity stunt. As others have mentioned funny how they are horrible for not getting married and now they are horrible because they are.

  50. Anon says:

    Congrats to Brad, Angelina and their 6 kids. I hope the Jolie-Pitts have a private, small wedding far and free from the nasty media and Hollywood.

  51. Liane says:

    Congratulations, Kaiser! I’m very happy for you! Cuz I get the subtle vibe that you’re really happy about this. :-)

    I imagine Zahara will plan the wedding. And a great job she’ll do to!

  52. Ameilia says:

    Yay. WHO CARES.. Only took him 7 years to get the ring on her finger and probably another 10 to get her down the isle

  53. hopeso says:


  54. Lucky Charm says:

    Oh, I’m so excited for them (squeals in delight)!!! ;)

    I also feel as happy & excited for them as if they were a couple I know personally, lol. Congratulations to them, I’m sure that it will be a lovely wedding. I wonder how I can talk them into letting me be the wedding planner, lol!

  55. naturegirl says:

    Congratulations to my all time faves. Love the Jolie-Pitt…. Soon to be Mr. & Ms… No no t Smith…Pitt…LOL….LOL….LOL….

  56. LeeLoo says:

    Well all I gotta say is it’s about damn time.

  57. Violet says:

    As far as I’m concerned, they’ve been in a common-law marriage all these years — after all, there’s no bigger commitment than two people raising a family together! — but I think it’s sweet that they’re going to sign on the dotted line to make their kids happy.

    Congrats to the Jolie-Pitts!

  58. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    What does it mean to be “engaged” after 7 years & 5 children? It’s meaningless, a big nothing. If they want to get married they should go down to city hall and be done with it. This is all just another empty episode in their attention whoring circus.

    • Snowflake says:

      Wow, I think it’s great! Just bc you’ve been with someone for a long time, it doesnt mean you can’t get married. They prob just wanted to take their time and make sure it was right after their previous failed marriages. Can’t blame them for that.

    • emily says:

      As someone engaged after being with my guy seven years and raising his two kids I find that a very rude thing to say. Just because they didn’t rush into marriage doesn’t mean they or I are any less deserving of a nice wedding to celebrate our love with our family and friends.

      • Ambergesa says:

        Same how narrow minded, judgmental aand rude. I was with my husband for eight years before we decided to get married. We were raising a child. It never seemed very important to just get that piece of paper. But over time feelings change and my son really wanted us “to get all married up”. We did and are blissfully happy. Why should we have denied our friends family each other and our child of that expression of love and joy. I can’t fathom the jealousy and hate that would drive all you people to be so negative about such a beautiful event got their family.

      • Joni says:

        Eh? None of us are saying they don’t ‘deserve’ to get/be married or that they shouldn’t if that’s what they want. What we’re questioning is the appropriateness of an ‘engagement’ in their case and the publicity they have decided to generate/bestow upon themselves on this occasion. Please consider re-reading the above posts and trying not to personalize things so much.

        I’m sure the other posters who share my opinion would join me in wishing you both very happy long marriages.

      • Jamie says:

        Joni, where is all this ‘publicity’ stuff coming from? They got engaged and no one knew, until someone saw her wearing a ring somewhere, and then spread it around. They obviously were trying to HIDE it, not flaunt it. If they were after publicity, they would have told us themselves, not hid it.
        You people never cease to amaze me, you really don’t. :(

      • Joni says:


        Seriously? Right here for a start, 300 comments or something. On newspapers and websites the world over. THIS IS PUBLICITY.

        Also, do you think that jewller would have dared mention the ring without the Jolie-Pitts blessing?

        I’m beginning to think it’s not true that every celebrity gets the fans he or she deserves.

      • Janet says:

        @Joni: I don’t see why they shouldn’t get engaged if they want to, even after seven years and six children. I totally agree with you about the jeweler, though. I believed his statement the minute I read it because I knew there was no way he would take it on himself to release such information without Brad and Angie’s permission if he wanted to continue to do business with them.

  59. bc says:

    “You know this is totally about The Leg. And Michael Fassbender.”

    Don’t forget the Gerbils of Doom!

  60. mimi says:

    This is good for all single moms out therer and all divorcees.

    The woman was divorced, twice, with a kid and another on the way (going through adoption) and here is the most gorgeous guy in the world, wants to marry her and raise a big family with her.

    That is great and I wish people would talk more about how now single mothers would be perceived and how this will change how they are viewed.

  61. Original Lucy says:

    I’M SO FREAKIN HAPPY FOR THEM!!! and I’m so glad that when Brad said the thing about how it means something to the kids that they marry, that it means something to him to…wouldn’t want them to do it just for the kids..

  62. Jayna says:

    Together seven years with six children. Engaged sounds ludicrous to me. Plan your wedding and do it or get married quietly and then announce you got married. Making a big announcement about an engagement when you have basically been married for seven years, just without the paper, cracks me up.

  63. shontay says:

    I’m so happy for them! I’m a huge fan of both!

  64. Sylvia says:

    I’m so happy for them….I love them both!

  65. The Original Mia says:

    Happy for them! Love the ring.

  66. JPlover says:

    Congrats to them finally when no one expected it. This two amaze me.

  67. Jaxx says:

    I wish they wouldn’t do this. Why fix what isn’t broken?

    I’ve always felt that applying the terms husband and wife to a relationship brings in unexplored expectations that can cause all kinds of trouble. You start expecting your partner to act in ways that are hidden even from yourself based on what you saw in your childhood between your own parents.

    However, I hope it works out for them as they need to cherish and protect the family they have created.

    • The Other Katherine says:

      Oh, absolutely it dredges up all kinds of subconscious elements, and some of them will inevitably be negative. But some of the stuff that bubbles up can be wonderful too — feelings of trust and permanence, the joy of celebrating your relationship publicly and realizing how much your friends and family are rooting for your long-term success, the spiritual aspect of actively choosing a binding legal union with another person. I hope the positives outweigh the negatives for them. Personally, I’m really happy to be married, as opposed to simply “in a committed relationship.” For some folks, it is important, and marriage does seem to really resonate psychologically for a lot of kids.

  68. Whatever says:

    Angelina doesn’t seem like the wedding planning type. Brad will plan everything and Angie will just have to show up hopefully wearing a BLACK Dress.

    • Embee says:

      And we all know that if Brad does the planning they’ll be getting married in their 60′s. That boy took a year – a year! – to design a ring. And the houses he renovates…he gets analysis paresis on them as well. He’s handsome but that level of persnicketiness/indecision would drive me insane. Or to drink.

  69. anne says:

    ” please, people – try not to go overboard talking about She Who Shall Not Be Named”

    Thankyou for saying that.But most people everywhere already done with that topic I have read comments and that story is ovah for good.

  70. Romia says:

    Feel-good news, ulterior motives aside. I hope Aniston ignores the media dramarama and that readers approach the gossip mags with a healthy dose of distrust. There are just too many examples out there of what is presented as an “interview with Celebrity A,” when in fact it is nothing more than recycled decade-old quotes or editor/writer fanfic speculation.

    I honestly don’t get all the Angie hate, either. They’re so pleasantly boring compared to the Snookis and the Real Housewives of the last ten years. I do like Snooki for her financial smarts; I don’t care how she legally acquired the cash. I tend to restrain feelings of hate/emotional outrage for less than a handful of celebrities.

    Good luck to Brad and That Very Fine Leg, and good luck with making marriage a nationwide reality for any couple…hopefully before I’m dead.

  71. justez says:

    I think this is great. They are clearly in love with each other and I think this is more for their kids than themselves (not saying that don’t love each other enough that they wouldn’t get married without children, but I don’t think they would want to unless it was for their kids). They have the right to change their mind on waiting until the marriage equality thing, as it seems they are in a much different place in their lives and it’s more of a family decision now.

    Though, I do think it’s a bit hypocritical of some people on this site as “She Who Must Not Be Named” was raked over the coals for changing her about children, or saying one thing and doing another, depending on what you believe. But they are not.

    Either way I bet they’re wedding will be spectacular particularly their children.

    I still think Angelina Jolie is creepy. To announce this on Friday the 13th? Eyeroll. Are they toasting with blood behind doors?

  73. ABY says:

    YAYYYY…..I’m so happy for them!

  74. hoya_chick says:

    To quote the venerable MK: “Those bitches are done. I mean, marriage is the number one cause of divorce. I swear that sounded a lot smarter in my head” lol I kid I kid. This is great news! Congrats Brad and Angie ‘the leg’ Jolie :)

  75. bettyrose says:

    Whatever. Get married, don’t get married, but spare us the charade of an engagement. YOU HAVE SIX CHILDREN. Are you seriously going to have bridal showers, bachelor parties, and a formal wedding?

    • Hipocricy says:

      Precisely. I think that the formal way, engagement included is well adressed to their 6 young children who will whitness it, participate in it and have still the dreamy fairytale image of a wedding.

      I also think that Pitt wanted that way since Jolie never had an engagement for her previous marriages who were both quick wedding, with no wedding dress, not always with her parents and before she turned 25.

      This marriage is a family oriented marriage done in presence of children, their own and the ones of their siblings.

  76. Loralei says:

    I know a good divorce lawyer

  77. Isa says:

    This is awesome and exciting! :)
    I always figured that they would sneak off and get married quietly, without announcing their engagement before.
    I really hope she picks a great dress.

  78. Carpe Diem says:

    Seriously? YAY! Love Ange.

  79. lower-case deb says:

    i don’t get why many people 6 kids meant they shouldn’t get married. should not have an engagement, etc. one does not preclude the other.

    on the other hand, liz taylor married 8 times, each short-lived. while kurt & goldie never married but they’re one of hollywood’s longest lasting couple.

    anyhow. CONGRATS TO THEM! an engagement is a happy occasion. we’ll let them have their weekend of peace, before tearing them apart again next week. (engagement on/off tab)

    happy weekend everyone

  80. the original bellaluna says:

    Congrats to them, if this is true!

  81. Kara Ann says:

    As I’ve said before, I don’t think Brad or Jolie ever particularly cared to re-marry b/c of their past experiences. I do believe that the children AND the resultant publicity is the reason that they are marrying now. At any rate, I am really looking forward to the wedding pictures esp. those featuring their children.
    I do believe after a spate of “reaction” tabloidy stories, “she who shall not be named” may actually quit being named in Brange stories. Perhaps certain over-zealous Brange fans will even stop running her down. So I really believe this is good for fans of all that were involved in the unholy triangle.

    • Jamie says:

      “Perhaps certain over-zealous Brange fans will even stop running her down.” Considering this whole thing was started by over-zealous Aniston fans who comprise 97% ofthe internet, the onus is on the Anistonloons to stop attacking Angelina and her children. The attacks on Aniston will stop with “Team Aniston” who started this, stop and apologize. Since 97% of internet blogs are pro-Aniston and anti-Angelina, its not up to Brange fans. You’re posing your question in the WRONG forum. Rather like attacking a victim of bullying and asking them to stop doing whatever it is that makes their bully taunt them. Team Jolie along with Angelina and her children are the victims here. Its up to the over-zealous Aniston fans to quit dragging Angelina up all the time and abusing her and her children.

      • Kara Ann says:

        Like ZenBitch said upthread, I love the commenters on Celebitchy regardless of this triangle nonsense. From my position as an aniston fan, I think she gets bashed unabashedly. I can see from a Brange fan where you would feel that they are unfairly commented on. (Shrugs) In the end, they are a all super-wealthy movie srars, I’m not gonna get upset about any of it. Fans of both sides have zealots that make ignorant or ugly comments. My point was it would be nice if that would stop on both sides. Hope we can agree on that.

  82. Oy Vey says:

    According to Angelina, she and Brad don’t think that fidelity is essential in a relationship, they have an open relationship and don’t “restrict each other”, so when they get married I guess they’re going to still be ok with being unfaithful and going out and sexing other people. If you don’t believe in an exclusive committed relationship, why bother getting married? That’s probably why they didn’t do it for so long, they have an open, unexclusive relationship. This engagement seems to be more for attention.

    • Rena says:

      Angelina NEVER said this, this lie was from a completely made up lying tale from a German tabloid. It has been refuted several times. Everything Angelina has said and done belies this total crap, she is faithful to a fault as is Brad. You nor anyone else have any proof otherwise. Tabloid lies are generated for people like you who always want to cling to the worst about people for illogical and irrational personal reasons.

      So very sad that you choose to come here spewing this nonsense on this extremely happy occasion for this couple and their kids.

      But neverthe less your silly attempt to rain on their parade, the sun is shining for them.

    • Mari says:

      Please do provide a link that is from an actual interview and not a tabloid. If you do not, the I would think that you are the same one that was posting this on JJ and now is doing the same on several websites.

      • Oy Vey says:

        Do you actually think there’s only one person who read that interview and posts about it across the internet?? And I don’t go to JJ thank you very much, I hear there’s too many Brangeloonies there. I read the article in the NY Daily News, which is not a tabloid, it’s one of the main newspapers of NYC. Just because something doesn’t paint her in a good light, it doesn’t mean it comes from a tabloid. And there are millions of internet users online every day, not the same person posting over and over again.

      • Oy Vey says:

        Do you actually think that there’s only one person who read that interview and is posting all across the internet?? I don’t go to JJ thank you very much, I hear there’s too many Brangeloonies there. I read the interview in the NY Daily News which is certainly not a tabloid, it’s one of the main newspapers in NYC. Just because you hear something unflattering towards her it doesn’t mean it comes from a tabloid.

      • Jamie says:

        And just because there is something that paints Angelina in a negative light, doesn’t make it TRUE, either. Oy vey, that tabloid lie was infamously debunked a LOOONNNGGGGGGG time ago, where have you been. Maybe you should make an effort to research properly, before making a fool of yourself. And JJ is actually full of loonistons, not Angelina fans. Its not called Just Looniston for no reason.

      • cameron says:

        you can’t provide a link for proof that it was actual interview but we’re expected to provide you a link. the story was bull and just because you read it in NY daily news doesn’t make it true. They pick up stories from the internet like other news organizations. What I’ve always said about JP fans they can always provide you links from legit Tv,magazine,newspaper and videos. Haters use the tabs as their source of info. When you ask them” Where’s the link”? they can’t or won’t provide it.
        We told you that the story came from a German Tabloid. Angie or Brad has never interviewed with a Tab.
        So move on. You sound stupid.

    • cameron says:

      She won’t provide a link because this is came from a non-existent interview by a German Tabloid equivalent to The National Enquirer/Star. The story has been debunked so many times.
      Hollywood Life was trying to ressurect again last year and Gossip Cop shut it down.

      • Oy Vey says:

        “Infamously debunked”? You people are hilarious! This isn’t a scientific equation that you “debunk”, this is a quote from a woman who is an admitted bisexual, so unless Brad has lady parts where do you think Angelina goes when she wants to sleep with a woman? You’re not going to deny that she said she’s bisexual and that she wants to taste everyone, are you?

        And btw why don’t you provide me with a link as to where that quote was so “infamously debunked”?

      • Jamie says:

        As others have said, the quote first came from a German tabloid. I know you truly are so very desperate to BELIEVE ANYTHING bad about her, but you look like a fool believing that when everyone here has corrected you. It is not a ‘quote’ from her or anyone, it was MADE UP as has been said by many others. They even gave you the name of the magazine it originated from, for heavens sake! Also, you have a very bizarre view of bi-sexuality. Just because someone is bi-sexual, DOES NOT mean they will sleep with one of each sex at the same time. Some are with a member of the same sex for years, then fall for someone of the opposite sex. It DOES NOT MEAN they “have one of each’ at any given time. You seem to think bi-sexual automatically equates to two-timing. She doesn’t need a female on the side, just because she is with Brad. Bi-sexuals are monogamous just as gay or straights are. You obviously don’t understand anything about sexual preferences, do you.
        Also, the quote about ‘taste everyone/everything’ can be taken another way, but its obvious you have reached for the basest sexual meaning. Angelina meant she wanted to travel the world, meet everyone, see everyone/everything in the world. It didn’t mean sex. Nothing you have said is logical or definitive of clear linear thought.

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        That’s idiotic. I’m. Heterosexual, and have been with the same man for 23 years. I’m attracted to men, so I cheat? She’s in a marital relationship, no matter what sex she is attracted to, she has made a choice to be committed.
        It’s called restraint, you don’t act on impulse, you choose to stay faithful
        Bisexual, gay or straight. Monogamy is about NOT acting out every time you feel like it

    • WTF says:

      HI Patty Anne using a new name to be anonymous and not connected to IUC now that Ian’s been totally wrong (as usual) about the Brange…thats just sad

      • Oy Vey says:

        So in other words, you don’t have a link or proof that she never said that? Being “debunked” means that it has been “proven” that she never said it, which you are unable to do. Btw your own denials don’t count as proof.

        You say “when everyone here” corrected me…um no dear, you and one other person are denying it, you’re a little full of yourself to think that that constitutes “everyone here”. And you’re still unable to provide me with a proven denial that she never said it. Did Angelina herself ever deny it? Shall I wait?

        And you say the quote “I want to taste everyone” is not sexual? Wrong again dear, obviously you’re not aware that the full quote from Angelina is: “I need more sex, OK? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world.” Obviously it’s about sex and not the silly reasoning you gave about traveling and meeting everyone in the world.

        And on that note, “everyone” includes both men and women, and if she wants to taste everyone, she obviously doesn’t have sexual boundaries to be monogamous, which also makes sense with the other quote that you’re trying to deny that she made, which is that she doesn’t believe in fidelity or restricting one another in relationships. Are you seeing a pattern here? Not all bisexual people are like that, but we’re not talking about all of them, we’re talking about Angelina.

  83. Camille (The original) says:

    Awesome news! Congrats to them. I bet the kids are happy and excited. :)

  84. Newtsgal says:

    I sure would hate to see what ol’ Jen’s beanie babies room looks like this evening…. Oh! the humanity!

  85. Delouise says:

    I am sure famewhoralina and her dumb husband will milk this to the absolute max. So absolutely tired of them!

  86. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    I told you they were planning something. They were dropping too many hints to miss. All we had to do is wait for it. They want to marry and was testing the reactions.

    Those crying PR? Neither has a film coming out. So unless she is with child or adopting, what PR?

    It is simply a matter of fact. They love each other and are in a mature relationship that has evolved and is solid. This is the obvious next step. They are not about to commit a crime, but rather commit to their family in a more legalized way.

    I am loving it. Big congrats to them for doing it how they want to. All those inside sources again let folks down. This slipped by them. Those who believed them should be pissed.

    The senior Pitts and John Voight must be proud. Could explain John’s recent visit and in conversation with Angie and the 1st time Jane and Bill attended the Oscars. Yep, all were in on it and I said it. Jolie and Pitt were playing everyone.

    They had a plan. And lead their lives as they see fit. Their kids have wonderful parents to lead them in this cruel world. Don’t give up. Live your life. Love one another. People will always talk, but push forward. I am truly happy for them.

  87. Rosina says:

    I am very much a Jennifer Aniston fan and I would like to say congratulations to Brad and Angelina on their engagement.

    I believe that people come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime. And regardless how long they last, new relationships in no way invalidate our old ones, which form part of what shapes us.

    In my personal opinion Brad Pitt ended his relationship with Jennifer very badly, his action were at odds with his words and very hurtful, I imagined myself in the position of Jen and considered him a complete and utter dochebag (this opinion was formed before Jen gave her first interview to Vanity Fair). However, with time and looking at their lifestyles today I realize that they are totally incompatible and I suspect that he simply lacked the maturity at the time to handle the matter better. We all make mistakes and that is not a crime, and in the larger scheme of things it is no longer relevant.

    I hope that having made a mint out of bashing Jen and Angelina for so many years the tabloid press will finally give them both a rest. My admiration and respect for both ladies has grown over the years, in the manner in which they have both withstood the assault. I will say one thing for Brad Pitt, he sure can pick strong women.

    Coming from a divorced home, I also strongly believe that commitment of parents to each other, is vital to the emotional well being of Children. And I sincerely wish them the best for the future, as I do Jen.

    After all isn’t happiness what we all so desperately seek.

    • Jamie says:

      Thats nice, but Brad did nothing wrong. Its now known that an affair didn’t happen, Brad did nothing wrong and didn’t handle his breakup badly, on the contrary, he was been almost (bar last year) silent and classy and handled it with class, whilst Aniston milked it for 8 long years and even dragged Angelina’s children into her attacks and digs. Aniston lacks the class that Sandra Bullock and Reece Witherspoon has, and these 2, unlike Aniston, WERE actually cheated on but didn’t milk it for sympathy. Aniston betrayed Brad and chose a career over her family. She is not the victim here, she is the one who handled it badly, and I take my hat off to Brad and Angelina for being so classy and silent despite all the unfair and unwarranted attacks on them for 8 long years. Angelina has had to bear attacks that no one should have to, including attacks on her children. Brad and Angelina can be PROUD of how they handled this.
      Incidently, since Aniston stole Justin Theroux from Heidi Bivens, the woman he lived with for 14 years, and since Aniston seduced and had an affair with another woman’s man on the set of wanderlust, do you think SHES a ‘douche’ too, for being a homewrecker? Or do you hold Aniston to different rules and standards?
      Brad was far too good for her. Aniston and Theroux deserve each other and I can’t wait for Aniston to get her karma, she deserves everything that is coming to her for what she did.

      • Joni says:

        The thing is, we don’t know what really happened between the three of them and never will. You believe what Jolie says because you’re a fan of hers but surely it can’t escape you that someone who is an Aniston fan would believe her side of the story? As someone who doesn’t particularly like any of them, my take on it is quite pragmatic: no man leaves his wife for another woman without already being very very close to the other woman. Some of the press appearances that Jolie and Pitt did for Mr and Mrs Smith where they are seen flirting like two little lovesick puppies bear that out. La Jolie playing all coy and shit. That said, this doesn’t mean the other woman, i.e. Jolie, is a calculating ‘husband stealer’. Neither does it mean there were no problems between the man, i.e. Pitt, and his wife, i.e. Aniston. It’s just bloody life. These things happen all the time. As for the media coverage, apart from the initial media reaction and coverage which was indeed hostile, the media is very supportive of the Jolie-Pitts. (Yes, I know there are tabloids who hate them but they are just that, shitty tabloids.) In every paper I read they are mentioned in a positive light. As for the people commenting on internet boards, there are people, like yourself, who are extremely aggressive in their dislike of Aniston, as there are people who are very aggressive in their dislike of Jolie. As for Aniston milking the media. First of all, they all work the media, it’s part of their job description. As I see it, Aniston felt quite sorry for herself at the beginning and for quite some time after that. Which is not altogether incomprehensible. Her fault was to allow the media to portray her as a pathetic little victim. In the end, that did little for her. The fact that she has tried to distance herself from that image more recently shows she has understood that too.

        On a final note, it really disturbs me that you need to bash Aniston so aggressively and blindly on this occasion out of all: on the day the engagement between Pitt and the woman he left Aniston for is anounced and in response to a very mature comment from an Aniston fan.

    • Janet says:

      To Rosina: That’s a very nice post about Brad and Angie from a self-described Aniston fan. My question to you is, though — how could Brad have ended his marriage “nicely”? Unless a marriage ends by mutual consent, one partner is bound to feel hurt, betrayed and abandoned. All things considered, I think Brad ended it as well as he could. He let her be the one to file for divorce. He didn’t move out of their house straight into Angie’s house, as far as anyone knows. And until this past year, when he said he had been bored throughout his marriage, he never mentioned Aniston at all, despite all the nastiness thrown at him and Angie by Aniston’s fans and the tabloids that sympathized with her. I think he behaved fairly decently throughout.

      • guest says:

        No one would care If Angie had been average looking. JA was the “poster girl” for the average-Cute girl who landed the HW hunk. Angie was painted as the Beauty who stole him. They were on the same playing field as far as looks. A woman’s worst nightmare. Believe me, if Brad had hooked up with Halle Berry or Charlize Theron it would have been same if not worst. They would have brought up race for Halle and with Charlize it would have been her mother murdered her father, unfit to have children and may murder him at any given time.

      • lower-case deb says:

        seems like angie is like camilla to aniston’s diana for some people.
        many years removed from the fact, people are still going to take sides.

        btw, does that make pitt less ear-y but more scruffy charles?

      • Rosina says:

        @Janet, I get your point but I think flying to meet with and allowing yourself to be photographed with the woman you had been rumored to be having an affair with for months (rumors that you had both denied) just a few months after releasing a statement on your separation saying there was no one else involved, probably not the best choice and guaranteed to start up media speculation. Secondly, Choosing to do a photo spread on happy families (your concept)yet again with the woman you had been rumored to be having an affair with(for the marketing of a movie that did not contain children)whilst in the mist of ending a relationship, to me smacks as an act of passive aggression or at the very least a sign of high insensitivity. By the way within the accompanying interview Brad Pitt stated that he was finding the separation from Jen hard because she was one of his best friends, well in my world you do not throw your friends under buses.

        As to whether Brad and Angie were physically intimate before the end of his relationship with Jen is irrelevant, what is without question is that they began an emotional attachment, Angelina herself confirmed this when she said in relation to Mr & Mrs Smith that their Kids would one day see the movie where their parents fell in love. By the way, it was to this statement, which reopened the whole question of when their relationship began, and not Angelina herself that Jennifer expressed the opinion of it being uncool; given that it reopened a can of worms.

        By the way, I don’t buy the argument of fans that whilst he was with Jen and shooting the movie (Mr & Mrs Smith) they felt nothing and then suddenly once he separated from Jen and they were filming the re-shoots they fell in love; feelings just don’t work that way.

        @Jamie, who to say what’s right or wrong, what I said was that in my opinion he handled the end of his relationship badly and I stand by that view. As I said before at this point it is all irrelevant.

        As to your opinion of Jennifer’s character, if that is indeed the case, it would also be reflective on Brad Pitt that he choose such a person as his partner and stayed with her for several years.

        With regard to the attacks on Angelina over the years those have come from the media and not Jennifer herself, who has only made one direct comment regarding Angelina’s interview quote as stated above, and has equally been subjected to just as many horrible attacks. Attacks which neither has deserved, but as Janet says that’s life, and whilst the media still stands to make a lot of money from continuing the attacks I can’t see them stopping anytime soon and for that both ladies have my sympathy.

        I concede that I don’t know any of them personally, so my opinions are subjective and based purely on what I have observed from their public actions and statements over the years.

  88. Lily says:

    Congratulations! I am very happy for them. I hope they will have a beautiful private wedding but some magazine will manage to have one or two pictures for us to see Angie in a wedding dress. I wouldn’t even mind a white sack…

  89. Ari says:

    whooooooooooooooooooooT!!!! i am very excited~

  90. Cathy says:

  91. Jamie says:

    I’m happy if its what she wants. She deserves permanent happiness after the hell she was put through for 8 years.

  92. Shy says:

    You know I don’t understand why they had to be engaged. Why they need this crazy “where would the wedding be”, “what country”, “when”, “what would it be like”. I with they would quietly married somewhere with only few close friends. And then announce it afterwards. Like: “Hey people. We are married now”.

    I don’t want to see some big ceremony. With pararazzi helicopters flying around that place. And live feed on TMZ or CNN. With wedding pictures in People magazine. I hope they won’t do that and will marry in quiet and then just announce it without details.

    • samira677 says:

      Haters make the dumbest comments. Only Brad and Angelina could be attacked for being engaged. Celebrity or not they have the to be engaged. Tabloids have been saying who, when, where for years so nothing has changed. They don’t attend or throw million dollar parties so I don’t understand the media circcus claims. Although the haters love to claim that 6 7 9 11 year olds don’t know what a wedding is they do. I’m sure they would want a small ceramony for them. Also they didn’t make a big announcement. Angelina is allowed to wear her own engagement ring. These attacks are bizarre.

    • judyjudy says:

      I agree with you, Shy. I think the media circus surrounding the event will likely be so tacky. Ugh. And everyone will say “But they want to be private, except the paparazzi and every magazine talking about it! Don’t click the links if you don’t like it!” blah blah blah. The truth is, these are just two people. Beautiful, yes. Kind and generous, for the most part-yes. Interesting, I guess so. I don’t get the hype, I don’t believe for a second they don’t totally love the hype, but ugh. I guess I don’t know what I’m trying to say except – UGH.

  93. Lenore says:

    I realise this site is called CeleBITCHy, but I still don’t get the hate from the commenters here. All the people saying “What’s the point after all this time, they already have 6 kids, the famewhores’ etc – what exactly is the problem?

    Both of them have already been married and divorced, so I wouldn’t blame them for not wanting to dive in again. And if they HAD gotten married early on in their relationship, the same people would have been screaming “Too soon, obvious rebound” or “He cheated WITH you, he’ll cheat ON you” or “I give it six months tops” or “She’s just trying to tie him down, she’s OBVIOUSLY insecure” or…you get the picture. When, precisely, would have been the right moment to marry that would have met with the approval of the commenters here hating on them? At what point exactly SHOULD they have gotten engaged? When COULD they have confirmed their engagement to the curious press without people screaming “famewhore” at them?

    Two people, already raising a family together, decide to get married, HURTING NOBODY, and people start jumping all over them?! I say congrats, and hope they continue to be happy together, six kids, legs, gerbils and all.

  94. lisa says:

    Don’t get why people don’t want them engaged. Angie has been married 2 times and to may knowledge she has never had an engagement and traditional wedding. We see other celebs that have children and are engaged and have wedding. but Brad and Angie shouldn’t because some people don’t want it.

    seriously.. they can do what they want. Have the wedding or not that they want. I saw a closer picture of the ring and it is stunning.

    everyone here can chose the kind of wedding they want and so can brad and Angie. If you don’t want to read or see it then don’t.

    congrats to them and their family. Beautiful couple.

  95. Bahamas says:

    Terribly happy for them – like how I was happy when Prince Charles married Camilla. Yay.

  96. swansong says:

    Doesn’t Voight have alzheimers? Maybe the timing isn’t so much about them ‘hating gays’ *snort*, but about wanting to marry while her father still has his memory and can be involved in the wedding.
    Who are any of us to judge either way, stop being Bitter Betty’s because you can’t call her Pitt’s baby mama/girlfriend anymore.

    Architecture is his hobby horse, so I’m looking forward to seeing the tricky ring that he designed for her.

    So happy for them! Can’t wait to hear more news as things unfold. I wonder what type of wedding they’ll have? Fun, fun, FUN!!! So happy for them and their kids! I know the kids must be thrilled!

  100. lili says:

    YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY. Love it, made my day, and it’s so romantic he designed the ring. Hope many years of love!

  101. Diana says:

    I know my opinion won’t be popular on this thread but the comments here just amaze me. For me, they have been married all this time. They have all the elements that constitute a marriage except for the piece of paper that says they are married. The bashing towards JA seems to me inexplicable. She was the cheated one, you can’t deny that. That’s not saying AJ was a conniving witch that sought to destroy a marriage; things like this just happens which doesn’t mean Jolie and Pitt were right to cheat, but everyone makes mistakes. I just don’t understand the need to see everything bad on Aniston and everything good in Jolie-Pitt. So it’s right to say Jennifer was a hypocritical bitch because of her thoughts on children but when Jolie-Pitt backtrack on their stand about marriage they’re just changing their minds and are allow to. I’m not a fan nor a hater of neither of them but the blinded fanatism annoys me.

    • Emma says:

      Brad isn’t backtracking on what he said. He said when everyone can get married, and since in some states gay marriage is allowed, everyone CAN get married – they just have to travel to another state to do it.

      I’m sure he meant when gay marriage is legalized in EVERY state, but what he said word for word is still true. Jennifer Aniston, however, what she said, isn’t true. There’s no way you can spin the argument she wanted kids. You CAN support based on her actions these past 7 years she hasn’t ever really wanted kids. Of course, neither can be proved, but one actually has support for, the other none.

      Plus there’s no solid evidence Brad/Angie cheated. There’s so much msinformation like how Mr. and Mrs. Smith CONTINUED FILMING after Brad and Jen broke apart, which is because schedule ran late and Brad had to leave midway of filming to do something else.

      Plus if you look at Shiloh’s conception month, it’s after Brad and Jen DIVORCED, albeit directly right after. Still, nothing wrong with a man shacking right up after he’s legally single.

      • Janet says:

        Emma, I’m not going to be disingenuous and say there was no cheating before Brad’s divorce because the fact is, we just don’t know. If there was, none of the three people involved is going to spill the beans. And when two adults fall in love, anything can happen. The bottom line is, a lot of water has passed under the bridge in seven years and everybody needs to move on and stop obsessing about who slept with whom back in 2005.

      • Josey B says:

        Those are some mighty fine mental gymnastics you’re doing about how everyone can get married, they just have to go somewhere else to do it.

        I don’t know why they even bother to push for marriage equality in the US. After all, they could all have been going to Holland to get married if they wanted to since 2001. Or Canada, Belgium, Sweden, Norway etc.

        Actually all three AND COURTNEY COX have gone on record to say there was no cheating.
        The first wife has moved on several times and is currently shacking up with a new dude. I wish her well and fingers crossed the Bermuda Triangle will be a distant memory.

      • Janet says:

        @mln: Honestly now, unless Courtney Cox was following Brad around 24/7, how would she know? And if Brad and Angie were knocking boots before he and Aniston split, do you think either of them would admit it? And Aniston would prefer to salvage her dignity by not appearing as a cheated-on wife, so of course everybody is going to say it never happened.

        Point is, whatever happened or didn’t happen is the business of nobody but the three people involved, and since we will never know what happened, speculation is pointless.

    Well GLAAD is fine with their decision.. so all the commenters that were “concerned” don’t be. LOL

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: GLAAD is cool with their engagement

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may have confirmed their engagement to live as man and wife, but that Friday announcement isn’t the only one the famous duo has made regarding the institution of marriage.
    In 2006, a year or so into their relationship, Pitt declared that he and Jolie wouldn’t tie the knot until all Americans had the equal right to do so, garnering the leading man huge support from the gay community.

    We were reminded of this during his recent awards tour for “Moneyball,” as Pitt spoke freely about his and Angie’s children encouraging them to get hitched. That stirred some anxiety from the gay community, but what’s the vibe now that the engagement is official?

    “We congratulate them on their engagement and thank them for continuing to speak out about the inequality that so many gay and lesbian couples face today,” GLAAD spokesman Rich Ferraro told the Ministry in an email.

    “No loving and committed couple should be denied the happiness, joy, and legal protections that come with marriage.”

    Yay! So happy for them. Congrats to a beautiful couple :-)

  104. Ell says:

    I don’t get the big announcement, it would have been much more classy to marry privately (they can you know) and let it slip a couple of years down the line.

    The cynical me wonders if this is more about their image, especially now the heat’s gone out of the dreaded triangle. Lainey, who loves the brange, always says their every move is planned.

    • Jamie says:

      I don’t get why people assume it was a ‘big announcement’ when just a little reading will show that it was a member of the public who spotted the ring, who then contacted the paps, which then emailed a jeweller and the Brad’s publicist. Neither Angelina nor Brad made ANY announcement at all, whatsoever. The jeweller confirmed Brad had it designed a year ago, and his publicist responded to an email. I really don’t get why people are so desperate to find dirt on this couple and to assume the worst, that they don’t even bother reading the articles which contain the facts, hence a post like the above full of lies and assumptions wouldn’t need to be posted. Btw, Lainey hates Angelina.

    • lisa says:

      Excuse me… what big announcement.

      And who decided that what Lameass says is the truth and whole truth. She knows squat about this couple. Nothing. and is two faced to begin with.

      They can get engaged and have a wedding if they want. And just because you and other don’t like it .. well tough cookies

    • Lucky Charm says:

      You’re right, you didn’t get a big announcement. Because there wasn’t one! Seriously, a little reading wouldn’t kill anyone, and would save a lot of misundestanding. Someone at the museum saw the ring on her finger, contacted the press, and it went from there. BP & AJ never said anything.

    • carrie says:

      Lainey hates Brangelina (Lainey hates every one in Hollywood except Ryan Gosling and the actor of John Carter)

  105. Thea says:

    The end of the triangle. Thank God.

    • Jamie says:

      Don’t bet on it! Brad and Angelina have been a family for years, and Aniston has had a few boyfriends inbetween and now Justin, and the Aniston fans STILL refuse to let it go, and in fact I saw several “Team Aniston” hashtags on Twitter in *response* to this engagement. It hasn’t changed a single thing because Aniston fans won’t let it drop. Not now, not ever. In 20 years time they will still be comparing Aniston’s then boyfriend or husband to Brad.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        Except there is no comparison to Brad! :) But you are probably correct, the jenhens will most likely never let this go, because not just was she (Jennifer) not the only woman he married, but she was not the woman he had his children with.

    • carrie says:

      don’t forget they again aren’t married and after they can divorce (ORGASM DREAM for tabloids)

  106. Kel says:

    As much as I feel that any relationship that starts in a deceitful manner is doomed, they seem very connected to each other and they adore their children. I hope it all works out.

    • Runs with Scissors says:

      What relationship started in a deceitful manner?

      Are people still trotting out this old b*llshit rumor about Jolie and Pitt cheating? Wow.

    • Jamie says:

      Agreed, but theirs did not start in a deceitful manner, so that comment is irrelevant.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      You must be referring to The Other One and her boyfriend Justin. That is the relationship that started in a decietful manner, NOT this one. Brad left Jennifer, then he went after Angelina, which is the preferred order of things, so nothing deceitful there at all.

    • Janet says:

      Kel: I wonder if you were aware that Paul Newman’s relationship with Joanne Woodward began in what you might call a “deceitful manner” and they were very happily married for decades.

      Brad was not happy in his first marriage. Angie has made him happy. Why should anyone have a problem with that?

      • guest says:

        If people would look at the History of some past HW mega stars. Paul Newman left his wife and three children for Joanne Woodward. I believe she was pregnant when they got married and their marriage lasted 50 years until his death. But because she wasn’t consider a beauty/sex symbol and he was married to an average housewife it was swept under the rug. Unlike the saga that unfolded with Liz/Debbie/Eddie.
        For goodness sake Brad and JA were married for 4 1/2 years with no children. At 36 years old, JA was young enough to start a new life but she chose to date losers for the past 7 years.

  107. Lucky Charm says:

    The third time’s the charm for both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie! This is Brad’s third engagement and Angelina’s third marriage. May the luck of the Irish bless them for many, many years!

  108. FOREVER says:

    A year to design that ring lol looks pretty basic to me, love them together.

  109. wtf says:

    I love how she is this alleged person of good will and otherworldly priorities, yet will wear an engagement ring that cost thousands of dollars. If somebody handed me a ring that cost thousands upon thousands of dollars, I would literally throw it at their face. I am not even joking in the slightest; that is a tremendous waste of money. You wear it on a single finger, it can easily slip off and be lost then destroyed or stolen.

    I refuse to wear diamonds, and I think it is a stupid f-ing trend. Why not crystal engagement rings? They are said to hold energy and have healing properties, so wouldn’t that make more sense?

    Maybe I am the only person bothered by this. Not too long ago my brother spent an arm and a leg on a 40 thousand dollar ring for his now wife. I wanted to puke, especially since that’s a far reach for him.

    • Hipocricy says:

      Well, you are not Jolie.

      You are such a goodwill person with your priorities in check, using a computer, one of those rich product westerners use while its costs could save some life abroad buying medecine.

      Instead you use that rich product to tell us how better than Jolie you are for refusing a ring that cost that much if given the chance to…yet you are still more privilleged than 90% of the world citizens, mind you.. and that doesn’t make you nor Jolie bad willing for having those posessions if you share a little bit with the less fortunate wether or not you keep the bulk that belongs to you.

    • lisa says:

      You really should read what you wrote. It is beyond idiotic.

      Who cares it you would or would not wear that ring. Nobody gave it to you and from your attitude I don’t suspect you will ever have to worry about anyone giving you a ring of that quality. If they still put rings in the crackerjack box that would be perfect for you.

      so now Angie’s good will work and priorities are questioned because the man that loves her gave her a beautiful and expensive ring. Did you post this rant on the other celeb thread when they got engaged, or was it just because this was Brad/Angie

      Get over yourself. Angie’s engagement has nothing to do with you and you choices. They don’t have to be hers.

    • Josey B says:

      For the record, a diamond is carbon that has crystallized in the cubic system. So it definitely qualfies as a “crystal”. However, in answer to your question as to why people don’t wear “crystal” engagement rings (assuming you mean “crystal” in the Swarovski sense), it’s because what you call “crystal” is actually lead glass and ironically, glass doesn’t actually crystalize, so the “flowing energy in a crystal” thing doesn’t apply. Regardless, it’s way too soft (scratches easily) and prone to chipping and breaking to put into a ring that is worn daily.

      Does that answer your question?

  110. Real fan says:

    I can’t wait until they go out as engaged couple just to see them.
    when you google their name there are 2207 articles on it.

    I want to know where Brad proposed, how he said it the actual price of the ring weather it is 250k or more or less, weather if she know this is comming( the proposal) i know they talk about marriage but how about the the engagment ring ? I want know if this is something brad keept secrate b/n him and the jeweler or not? I reaaly want the juciy detales. I am still so happy love the jp I am so happy and surprised. I really didnt believe they actually enaged or marry anytime soon.

  111. toots says:

    Maybe Brad and Angelina want to get married for the same reason same-sex couples seek that right? To afford their family all the legal protections and responsibilities formal marriage bestows? Ask any gay couple with children about the contortions they need to undergo (at considerable expense) to bestow inheritance rights, medical decision-making ability, school and hospital visitation privileges, custodial rights to the children in the event of an accident, etc., etc, on their partners.

    The legal stakes get exponentially higher once kids are involved. One can also imagine the significant emotional stakes for a family with many adopted children: the kids are old enough to want the security of a marriage bond between their parents. Nobody should begrudge legal marital status to any couple, gay or straight. More power to Brad and Angelina for making any public point about same-sex inequities in the US, something our celeb-wedding obsessed culture rarely considers. And more power to them for taking this personal step at this time, for their own personal reasons.

  112. Karma says:

    Congrats to the entire family! Can’t wait to see the kids in the wedding photos.

    They’ve clearly been married in their hearts for years now.

  113. Uh huh says:

    I always thought they were pretty cool creating such a unique family unit with their non-traditional embrace of family. I really felt society needed that and I admired them for it. But I guess they’re like everybody else, giving into societal pressures (in this case, their kids who watch Disney movies (ew) and demand they marry). Now Angelina will take his name and Brad will not take hers…welcome to matriarchal matrimony.

  114. Pow! says:

    Some of you people scare me!! Gah!!

  115. Onyx says:

    You know what annoys me? Is the viciousness and personal attacks people who comment on this board either endure or cause or perpetuate. Most of you claim to have immense adoration for these two for their “humanitarian” acts, yet you cut each other off and put each other down over non-sense.

    These are two people you are unlikely to meet, even if you did, will not become the friends of. You are closer and more connected to the people on here you are talking to; these people are more real to you.

    Why do you all so often insult each other over COMMENTS MADE ABOUT PEOPLE YOU DO NOT KNOW PERSONALLY. You bash each other for defending or insulting complete strangers. This should be a light airy board, not a vicious political debate.

    Celebrity gossip and chit-chat is innocent to an extent, but the people you should really be concerned about… the people you should be celebrating and getting to know shouldn’t be them.

  116. Sugar says:

    I am surprised @ the comments about it’s been this so many yada yada years so why now? Marky Mark & his now wife & that girl on DWTS & her now husband were together for years & had kids together & came to a place in their long term relationships were they wanted to make that commitment to marry. I use these 2 relationships as examples that it’s a decision that committed couples make between themselves. Obviously Brad & Angie are by far the greater celebs of the half assed examples I gave since I’m too lazy to look up the names but it is also one reason these two are getting negative comments because who they are.
    I for one am happy for them & their children. I think it’s awesome that Angie found the love she has been looking for & she has grown into this amazing mom & Brad found his love and the woman to give him the children he has always wanted. They are good together & their love for one another is real.
    Happy day all:)

    • lisa says:

      Nice post.

      but don’t be surprised.. the upset is only because its Brad and Angie. They would not give a fig if it were anyone else. Including the celebs you named that got married and nobody cared how long they were together or that they had kids. Just Brad and Angie

  117. mummy says:

    I wish them well. But calling this potential wedding the “wedding of the century” shows just how stupid but money hungry the media really are. The tabloids are thinking there is money in this so they are eagerly inflating the event, even though (with the exception of a few around here) nobody really cares. Brunette Barbie marrying an aging Ken would be equally exciting.

  118. PHD in Gossip says:

    Engaged after six kids and seven years? Engaged? What does engaged mean?
    Trying to be conventional NOW?

    PR. PR. PR. it’s always about PR. Wonder what the real story is.

    • lisa says:

      I had no idea that people didn’t understand the meaning of “engaged”

      so here you go..hope this clears it up for you.

      An engagement or betrothal is a promise to marry, and also the period of time between proposal and marriage – which may be lengthy or trivial. During this period, a couple is said to be betrothed, affianced, engaged to be married, or simply engaged. Future brides and grooms may be called the betrothed, a wife-to-be or husband-to-be, fiancées or fiancés, respectively (from the French word fiancé). The duration of the courtship varies vastly.
