“Yes, it’s confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy,” Pitt’s manager Cynthia Pett-Dante tells Lifeline Live. “There’s no date set at this time. Brad designed the ring.”
Well that will teach me for saying this morning that I secretly wish that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would split up because they are now engaged!
Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop has told The Hollywood Reporter that he is the creator of the engagement ring that Angelina Jolie flashed (above) during a museum visit on Wednesday.
A rep for the jeweler (who I would imagine has permission to tell people this) says, “I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt.”
Jolie was seen wearing the ring on April 11th (pictured above) at a private viewing of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Chinese Galleries and took son Pax along too who looks hilariously bored by it all.
Procop tells THR: “Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a year long collaboration.” A year?- Wow. Wonder how much it cost?
“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.”
Well if you ask me this is excellent news. Celebrity gossip’s thin on the ground at the moment and what we all need is a big summer wedding at the sprawling pad that Brad’s offshore trust owns- Chateau Miraval – in Brignoles, France. Which happens to be a stone’s throw from where I live.
It is just the shot in the arm we all (by this I mean juicy showbiz news addicts) crave (along with Jennifer Aniston having an impossibly beautiful baby).
It’ll be great having a laugh at her skeletal frame in a wedding dress getting side-eyed by George Clooney as she leg-bombs her way up the aisle.
By the way, Brad first proposed to Angelina in summer 2005 when she told him she was pregnant with Shiloh. This is from a very close source, who added that Ange thought Brad adopting Maddox and Zahara was a bigger commitment than marriage and so told him that she wasn’t interested in a wedding.
When Brad promised to take Angelina up the aisle this probably isn’t what he had in mind.
