A representative for the couple confirmed this afternoon that they are in fact engaged, a rumour which has been circulating in the past few weeks (and let's face it, the past few years) after Ange was spotted out an
about in what appeared to be an engagement ring. The actress was at a private viewing at Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Chinese Galleries last Wednesday when she was papped in the bling ring, which was reportedy a collaborative design between Brad and jeweler Robert Procop. Brad's representative Cynthia Pett-Dante says,
"Yes, it's confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There's no date set at this time...I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt."
Cynthia then went on to reveal more about Brad's ring design, saying,
"Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realised 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."
Brad and Angelina have always maintained that they wouldn't wed until gay marraige is legal, but continued to confess that he finds it hard to "hold out" to marry his long term partner.
