Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt engaged after 7 years

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, one of Hollywood's most famous couples, are engaged, the actor's manager said on April 13, 2012 - Friday the 13th. The two have been together for more than six years and are parents to six children. Jolie was photographed on two days earlier wearing a large diamond ring at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). She had attended a viewing of a Chinese art collection with Pitt and their son, Pax. 'Brad designed the ring,' the actor's manager said in a statement obtained by OnTheRedCarpet.co. 'It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There's no [wedding] date set at this time.' The office of Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Proco released a statement earlier in the day that said that he had designed an engagement ring for Jolie. 'Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration with Robert,' his spokesperson said. 'He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so Robert 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 spokesperson did not specify the number of carats contained in the piece, but said: 'The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.'
