Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: Inside the Proposal!

by at . Comments

Nothing like calling a Jolie-Pitt family meeting for the announcement that the celebrity gossip world had longingly been waiting - and hoping - for.

On a recent spring day, Brad Pitt gathered Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 3, to present their mom with something.

That would be a tablet-shaped diamond engagement ring, estimated at 16 carats and worth $500,000, and which he helped design with jeweler Robert Procop.

"Angelina cried and smiled" at the proposal, a confidante says. Aww.

The children, who had been eager for their parents to wed after seven years together, were equally overjoyed to see Brad and Angelina engaged.

The source adds. "Everyone hugged once she put [the ring] on. She went around and showed it to each of the kids, one by one. It was magical."

As the world now knows, Jolie, 36, quietly debuted that long-awaited ring at an April 11 private viewing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Procop and then Pitt's manager confirmed the engagement days later. Now, "Angie considers herself bonded to Brad for life," adds the source.

Speaking of which ... do you think they'll last?


"Selective charitable empathy"......couldn't agree more. Also, Angelina uses third world countries' lack of proper nutrition as reasoning to maintain her own thin physique (as a former anorexic even I've used that reasoning, or more fitting, excuse). But she'll accept an expensive ring. And wear designer labels. They don't have that in the countries she visits. Where/when it suits THEM is right on the money.


@Logan Angelina probably thinks she's doing the third world countries enough of favor by shopping for her family members there! These celebs have what I call "selective charitable empathy" for the less know...when it benefits them and their image the best.


With starving children, third world countries, and poverty, why on earth does ANY woman need a 500,000 dollar ring? Go get a thousand dollar ring and give the other 499,000 dollars to charity.


Does anyone care about this event between these two besides the media? Because I'm really bored already hearing every little detail about people who have been living together for 7 years and have 6 kids. Yes, please leave Jennifer Aniston out of this, she's probably as bored with it as I am.


I suppose we'll all be subjected to every sniveling detail of this event! They should go to Vegas or to some deserted beach and quietly tie the knot with their kids looking on and get it over with!


Can we please, for the love of God, drop the whole Jennifer Aniston/Brad Pitt/Angelina triangle??? SEVEN YEARS PEOPLE!!!!!! They've moved's time the tabloids moved on as well. I'm tired of her name appearing in every bloody article written about Brad and Angelina. I love Hollywood Gossip and am honestly surprised that you guys keep bringing it up all the time too......Time to let it go and move on.....
