Update: It’s official!
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged.
“Yes, it’s confirmed,” Pitt’s manager Cynthia Pett-Dante tells PEOPLE. “It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
In recent months, Brad Pitt has talked about finally marrying Angelina Jolie. And it seems he is a man of his word with reports emerging today that Angelina has recently been spotted wearing an enormous sparkler on her engagement finger.
And the jewelry designer, who collaborated with Pitt on the diamond bauble, has confirmed that it is an engagement ring.
“I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt,” a representative for the jeweler, who collaborated with the actress on her Style of Jolie collection, confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
“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 suit Angelina’s hand. Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution,” Procop says. “The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”
Angelina was spotted wearing the ring April 11 at a private viewing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Chinese Galleries.
But what has us puzzled, is after all these years, why would they bother going through an engagement period and not just marry? It’s not as though they have only begun courting.
