We’ll say that one more time: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt</strong> are engaged. A rep for jeweler Robert Procop confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter today that a ring Angie was sporting at an event on Wednesday is in fact an engagement ring, “designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt.”
You are probably having two reactions to this news: 1) Let us see the ring! And 2) Weren’t they engaged already?
We’re working on #1, but for now you can see it over on THR, along with this description: “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.”
And yeah, as for #2, we do kind of wonder about those couples that claim not to be officially engaged even though they talk about getting married as an inevitable fact. But since we are now ecstatically imagining what this wedding will look like (and OMG the guest list!), we will forgive Brangelina. Every time we used to wish they’d get married already (you’d think the six kids were a good enough sign they’re ready for commitment), we started to feel like our grandparents.
The last either of them said on the matter was when Brad Pitt told THR: “We’d actually like to, 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.”
Well, there still isn’t marriage equality in California, but now we have one more reason to hope it comes soon (totally trivializing gay marriage for the purpose of this blog post, sorry).
