Angelina Jolie wasn't flaunting an engagement ring when she walked the red carpet at the Oscars in February (that would have drawn attention away from her very exposed right leg) -- but she's wearing one now.
That's right: Jolie and Brad Pitt are officially 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."
Buzz of an engagement began to build after Jolie was photographed on April 11 wearing what looked like an engagement ring while taking in a private viewing of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Chinese Galleries with Pitt and their son Pax.
Things heated up even more when jeweler Robert Procop confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he had designed an engagement ring for Jolie -- with Pitt's help, of course.
"Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a year-long collaboration," Procop, who worked with Angie on "The Style of Jolie" jewelry line, tells THR. "Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution."
Although Pitt, 48, and Jolie, 36, have long held that they wouldn't marry until everyone had the option to marry regardless of sexual orientation, they have recently publicly hinted that they might not be able to hold out, mostly due to pressure from their children.
"We'd actually like to (get married), and it seems to mean more and more to our kids," Pitt told The Hollywood Reporter in January. "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."
Around the same time, Pitt also told CBS News that Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 3, had been hassling him to "get mommy a ring." His response? "Okay, I will, I will!"
Jolie, however, told reporters at the Jan. 30 SAG Awards that all the marriage talk had been "blown out of proportion."
But now the proof is in her sparkler.
