(LOS ANGELES) — Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are engaged at last.
Pitt’s publicist confirmed the engagement to ABC News Friday saying “it is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time. Brad designed the ring.”
Earlier Friday, a representative for Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop told The Hollywood Reporter that he designed an engagement ring for Jolie, which she was seen wearing on April 11.
“I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt,” the rep said.
The jeweler said that Pitt “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 suite Angelina’s hand,” Procop said. “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.”
Pitt, 48, and Jolie, 36, have been together since 2005 and repeatedly denied rumors that they’re heading to the altar. But this year, Pitt admitted that their six children are itching to see mom and dad get married.
“We’d actually like to,” he told The Hollywood Reporter when asked if he and Jolie had plans to marry. “It seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot.”
