Last week we learned that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally got themselves engaged to be married. Yesterday we saw a photo of the beautiful Tiffany ring that Angelina‘s engagement ring was modeled on … but today, we get to see the Brangelina sparkler close-up. Ange was spotted in public with rock on hand for the FIRST TIME since news of her engagement broke. As you may recall, we already know that Brad had a hand in the rings design but today we also learn that Brad REPORTEDLY popped the question last Xmas. Keep in mind, this proposal “news” comes from a tabloid report so it’s likely that the story is completely fiction … but now that we know that the couple are, indeed, engaged — speculative stories like this are going to be de rigueur. Click below to get a good look at Angelina‘s bling and read the REPORTED deets of Brad‘s proposal.
Angelina Jolie may have only just debuted her gorgeous engagement ring, but Life & Style can exclusively reveal that she and Brad Pitt have been engaged for months! A source says that Brad proposed to Angelina at Christmas and that the couple decided to keep it a secret until the timing was just right. “Brad had the ring designed last year and made sure it was ready by Christmas because he wanted a romantic Christmas proposal — and he got it,” a friend of Brad’s tells Life & Style. “They didn’t announce their engagement sooner because Angie focused so much on promoting her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey,” says the insider. Instead, Brad waited until after the December premiere before getting down on one knee. “She was very busy with the movie and her Oscar campaign. She also worried that the engagement would take over press on her film and detract from that. There was some negative press on Blood and Honey that bothered her a lot, and she didn’t feel the timing was right. So they waited,” reveals the source.
Again, I don’t know that I totally believe this proposal story (particularly because of how detailed it is) but these tabs do know how to spin a story. I’m of the mind that the more personal details a tabloid story has, the less true it actually is. Nonetheless, I’m certain that Brad‘s proposal to Angelina was lovely and special … and he did a really great job with the ring. Now that Angelina is finally showing off her ring, we can get a better sense of what it looks like. It’s a pretty ring, unique and classy. My guess is that Brangelina may have a long engagement (nothing wrong with that) so we better content ourselves with gawking at this ring for a while … cuz wedding plans may still be months away.
