Love is interesting: So let's talk carats, kids, and ceremony in the Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie engagement.
After years of speculation and enough tabloid spread to encircle the globe, megastar couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced Friday that they will be making it official. Finally. The Jolie-Pitt wedding is sure to be a topic of discussion for, well, the entire run-up to the Jolie-Pitt wedding, with each and every detail picked apart and analyzed in true Hollywood stalker – I mean journalism – style.
Indeed, even the most high brow among us can't help thinking and speculating a bit about any couple finally tying the knot – love is interesting, after all.
But to get you started, Modern Parenthood has compiled some of the key points released, or guessed at, thus far. You can thank us later.
The main story is the ring he put on it, of course. People Magazine, which very unsurprisingly put the couple on its cover, noted the custom made diamond was designed personally by Mr. Pitt. Reported cost: $1 million. Reported weight: 10 carats, at least. Let's hope Angie's hand can support the weight! Jeweler Robert Procop's representative told The Hollywood Reporter that the jeweler and the groom-to-be spent a year finalizing the design.
The Pitt-Jolie brood, on the other hand, now currently holding at six, seems to be taking the proposed change in marital status in stride. However, the globe-trotting family may be heading to the U.K. for the next couple of years, according to a story in The Sun, due to reported back-to-back film commitments for Mama Angelina. The family has a home in France, however, which is where The Sun speculates a European ceremony would occur.
