‘Mr. And Mrs. Smith’ Add Wedding Vows To Their Real-Life Script
By Dr. Jane Greer
Celebrity stars shine so bright and we look up to them. Yet often we are puzzled when they fall, so Shrink Wrap is here to shed light on all.
Brangelina, the moniker of long time loves Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, have made their commitment official. The couple announced their engagement this week, after 7 years and 6 children together- and countless tabloid covers. Though Brangelina once stated they would not legally wed until all gay and lesbian couples could as well, they’ve spoken to the press about how their children have recently begun asking for their parents to marry. Angelina’s jeweler was the first to trumpet the news, to international coverage, with the couple confirming their engagement soon after.
For the A list couple, an upcoming wedding marks the final test of commitment, which reportedly began when Brad was still married to ex wife Jennifer Anistion. After years of breathless chatter over exactly when Brangelina’s relationship became romantic, and if Angelina truly was more than just a costar during filming for ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith,’ an engagement marks the solidification of their devotion. And for their six children, this also brings closure and permanence- though not likely a rest from a lifetime of tabloid reports.
Per E Online-
Celebrity-wedding wishes do come true—Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are engaged. Pitt’s manager has confirmed to E! News their plans to tie the knot, after brand-new speculation arose when Jolie was spotted wearing a dazzling new diamond ring. You know, on that finger… Massive rock (designed by Pitt, aw) aside, how is the massive Jolie-Pitt family feeling about the news? “It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy,” Pitt’s rep tells E! News. “There’s no date set at this time.” While Jolie adopted Maddox and Zahara technically on her own, Pitt adopted them several years ago, then they adopted Pax together and have three biological children—Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne. So, even without the couple’s nearest and dearest grownup friends (George Clooney, we’re lookin’ at you), there are more than enough flower girls, ring bearers, groomsmen and bridesmaids to go around! This will be the second marriage for Pitt, who in case you didn’t know was previously married to Jennifer Aniston for five years, and the third marriage for Jolie, who was once Mrs. Jonny Lee Miller and then Mrs. Billy Bob Thornton. Pitt and Aniston divorced in 2005, after which he and his Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar joined forces to become the most talked about couple in Hollywood.
