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?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged, as you now know. For real.

OK! Magazine and its ilk are either overjoyed that they get to print accurate news for once in their lives this week, or devastated because now that Brangelina got engaged, and confirmed it, they've lost some great source material.

Either way, here's their very special commemorative cover:

Brangelina Engaged!

"Yes, it's confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are all very happy," Brad's manager Cynthia Pett-Dante confirmed to the AP last week.

"There's not date set at this time."

That's it. No more waiting for gay marriage to be legalized all over the world. No more coy interviews. No more ridiculous tabloid cover story lies.

Okay, those are clearly going to persist. But they'll have to branch out, because the secret wedding well has finally run dry. It was a good run, guys.

Despite any bitterness you'd think would linger, Jennifer Aniston swears she has nothing but warm wishes for the engaged Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

"Jen moved on a long time ago, and she is trying to just focus on her own happiness," a source says of the actress, 43, who divorced Brad in 2005.

"Jen is not a bitter person and she always wanted them to be happy."

Part of the reason for that is that Jen is happy and in love herself.

Aniston has reason to celebrate herself: Next month marks her 1-year anniversary with boyfriend Justin Theroux, who she met while filming Wanderlust.

"Jen spent many happy years with Brad and thinks their divorce was meant to be," adds the source, noting that the two recently moved in together.

"She is very happy with Justin – and that's what she is focusing on right now."

And everybody lived happily ever after apparently ... who'd have guessed! And what are Life & Style and In Touch going to devote covers to now?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie plan to tie the knot at last at their sprawling estate in France this summer, then move to England for at least two years, reports say.

While the newly-engaged couple says there is no date planned for their nuptials, the New York Post says they've spent the last six months planning them.

The plan, allegedly, is to hold a lavish wedding ceremony at their manse near the village of Correns, in the south of France, London’s Daily Star adds.

The engaged Brangelina will reportedly exchange vows in a pre-Roman chapel on the grounds before 200-300 guests, many of them Hollywood elites.

Pals George Clooney, Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Jacqueline Bisset and her once-estranged father Jon Voight are expected to be on hand.

“They have been quietly preparing for one of the most glamorous show-business weddings of all time for months,” a close friend of the couple said.

“I’ve seen their chateau; it is one of the most romantic settings imaginable.”

As soon as the Brad-Angelina engagement news spread, locals began buzzing about “Le Mariage de Monsieur et Madame Smith,” a takeoff on Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

With Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie engaged, most of the free world is sending its best wishes to the long-time couple. Including... Jennifer Aniston?!?

Yes, according to a Hollywood Life source, the former Mrs. Pitt is beyond content with boyfriend Justin Theroux and is simply "happy for Brad and Angelina" at this point.

"She is so in love with Justin, that she is really grateful how things turned out,” the Aniston insider says. “In a strange way if it weren’t for Angelina, Jennifer would not have connected with Justin in a romantic way. Jennifer is in a really wonderful place right now. I wouldn’t be surprised if she even went to their wedding.”

Plus, hey, Jen is clearly pregnant and the happiest she's ever been anyway, so why possess hard feelings.

But are you buying this? Do you think Jennifer Aniston is really happy for Brangelina?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may star in a new movie together, as talk in Hollywood centers around the parents teaming up for Ridley Scott's The Counselor.

But that's nothing compared to the following scoop: a new source claims this famous couple will also be starring together in life! Forever! Marriage style!

Brad ana Angie

A rep for Robert Procop - a Beverly Hills jeweler and former CEO of Asprey & Garrard - tells The Hollywood Reporter that his client has designed an engagement ring for Jolie "in collaboration" with Pitt.

The actress reportedly wore the ring on April 11 at a private viewing of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Chinese Galleries.

Talk of marriage and another pregnancy for Angelina have dominated the tabloids for months, of course. Last May, Pitt acknowledged that his children often ask about the subject and the couple will have to "look at" the possibility soon. Might that time have finally arrived?!?

If so, someone get Jennifer Aniston a drink. Stat!

UPDATE: It's been confirmed! Says Pitt's manager Cynthia Pett-Dante: "It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time."

For the first time since the 2005 action-romance that brought them together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be set to burn up the big screen together.

The Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-stars are in talks to appear alongside Shame's Michael Fassbender and Javier Bardem in The Counselor, directed by Ridley Scott.

According to reports, Brangelina's project is set to begin in a few months, and the movie will shoot in Europe. Both the Jolie-Pitts and Scott have homes in France.

Fassbender will play the title role of a respected lawyer who gets tangled in the drug business, while the film will reportedly deal with very gritty themes.

Unlike when they shot Mr. and Mrs. Smith, however, Jolie and Pitt are a bona fide couple - with six kids. Until now they have alternated film projects.

"We're not ones to repeat ourselves, but we'd like to, because now, we're hopscotching films so one can be with the kids and one's free to work," Pitt said.

"And why aren't we doing [movies] together? Why aren't we doing everything together?"

Looks like they soon will be.

When Angelina Jolie signed on for the title role in Disney's Maleficent, she did so relishing the idea of her kids seeing her as the Sleeping Beauty villain.

"It's a really great script. I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted," Jolie told Entertainment Weekly on Friday. "My kids are very happy."

"It's not anti-princess, but it's the first time that they're looking at this epic woman [in a different way]," she says of the new take on the fairytale classic.

Ange and Malificent

"You see a woman capable of being many things; just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn't mean she can't have other [warmer] qualities," the leg-thrusting actress adds. "You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is."

Jolie says there are redeeming qualities to her character, despite her ruthlessness.

"It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that's good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you're saying they should be a villain," Jolie says.

"[Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she's not perfect. She's far from perfect."

The actress has already begun working with the costume department to perfect her look for the film, which begins shooting in June.

"We're experimenting with different things," Jolie says. "But the horns are the horns - you can't deny them. You have to have horns."

Is Angelina Jolie thinking about producing, directing and/or even starring in a royal family biopic? With the lovely Kate Middleton as the centerpiece?

The leg-thrusting Oscar winner is apparently obsessed with the royal family, keeping a framed photo of William and Kate at her French chateau!

That's the rumor anyway, and her interest goes beyond simple admiration.

  • Dazzling Duchess

Bowled over by the royal couple's "kindness and sincerity," Angie is even thinking about trying to get a Kate Middleton biopic made, sources say.

"Angelina's fascinated by her and her wonderful aura," says an insider.

"She loves her look and common touch and says she and William radiate kindness and sincerity, something increasingly rare in this day and age."

Who would play William and Kate on film? Angelina does not seem like the best choice, actress-wise, though she might be fine as the director.
