Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Are Married
Hollywood’s most notable couple finally tied the knot this weekend as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were married in Chateau Miraval, France, a spokesman for the couple told the Associated Press.
The ceremony between Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, took place Saturday. The wedding was small and attended only by family and friends. Pitt and Jolie’s children — Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 6, all took part in the wedding.
The Associated Press also reported that Maddox and Pax actually walked Jolie down the aisle, while Zahara and Vivienne threw rose petals. Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.
Jolie told “Good Morning America” earlier this year that getting the kids involved in the couple’s big day was very important to them.
“I think the important thing is that whenever we do it, that the kids do have a great time,” she said. “And we all take seriously the love and the connection between all of us. But we also just get silly and do something memorable.”
A local California judge got the couple their marriage license and also conducted the ceremony.
Pitt and Jolie started dating in 2005 after meeting on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” and Jolie first spoke out about the relationship in January 2006 when she confirmed to People magazine that she was expecting Pitt’s first biological baby, Shiloh. The couple had adopted Maddox, Pax and Zahara before then.
The is the second marriage for Pitt, who was with “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston from 2000 to 2005, and the third for Jolie — she was married to Jonny Lee Miller from 1996 to 1999 and then Billy Bob Thronton from 2000 to 2003.
