That’s right, my friends, the Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-stars are FINALLY tying the knot! After seven years, countless speculations, one gargantuan celebrity scandal and 2034289 kids later, these two purrr-fectly proportioned kittens are getting hitched… and I, along with all my other celebrity junky counterparts, couldn’t be more excited!
On April 13, 2012 – just a shade under a decade after the celebrity break-up scandal of the century – the most famous other woman, Angelina Jolie, and Mr. Anniston’s (former) other half, Brad Pitt, were forced into the nuptial limelight after Jolie was spotted sporting a right ring finger rock out in public. Celebrity media went into overhaul, until reps of the couple officially confirmed the engagement rumors were no longer rumors at all :)
According to USMagazine.com, Brad proposed to Angie during a weekly Jolie-Pitt family meeting in front of their six (yes, six, not 2034289 – hehe) children, to which Angie happily responded with tears of joy.
Tears of joy, indeed! CBS News reports, it took Brad an entire year co-designing this tablet-styled, 16-carat diamond stunner with jeweler, Robert Procop, to get it just right…
And why now after seven years was the itch to get hitched so great?? Well, all the pressure, of course! But not the media pressure… oh no! The kids’ pressure, duh! is what finally made Brad get down on one knee.
On a recent CBS Sunday Morning interview, Pitt confirmed that Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 3 were all anxious to see their parents get married. Pitt reported catching grief from his kids about why he and “Mommy” hadn’t gotten married when all their friends’ parents were married.
After responding with, “We will someday. We will,” Pitt was confronted with a chorus of, “Get Mommy a ring then!”
While the certified wedding date hasn’t been announced yet, I can only it happens soon! (And that my invite comes even sooner!!) Surely, they’ll want me at the affair :)
