Brangelina, the world’s most genetically gifted couple, are finally engaged. It only took having 6 children, purchasing homes in 67 countries and 10,000 “poor Jennifer Aniston cover stories” to convince Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie that it was time to make it official.
The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive that claims Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop designed the engagement ring for the couple after receiving very specific instructions from Brad. Procop told THR:
“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 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.”
While I’m sure the ring’s beautiful, it’s missing one signature feature. His blood in a tiny little ring-sized vial. Or is that too Billy Bob Thornton? I never know where to draw the line when it comes to traditions with your ex.
The couple, who originally said they wouldn’t marry until everyone could marry changed their minds recently. In an earlier THR article from January, they said:
“We’d actually like to,” he said of making Jolie his wife, “and 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. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”
So if this is true (which it might be considering Angie was spotted wearing “the ring” this week), I’m sure the kids are bouncing off the walls now. Literally. They seem like the kind of children who would bounce off walls.
Once they come down from their “our parents are getting married” high, all hell will break loose as they start fighting it out for who gets to be the ring bearer and the flower girl. We’re placing all bets on Zahara being named maid of honor.
