WELL so much for the theory that if you give a guy the milk for free he’ll never buy the cow.
After six years together it looks as if Brad is finally ready to make Angelina Mrs Pitt.
It would be the perfect fairytale ending to their soap opera of a relationship, but it may not be quite the romantic gesture it seems. After all, the couple have often said they feel they are already married in every way that matters. But it seems somebody disagrees. Or rather, six little somebodies.
It is believed to be the couple’s six children - their famous rainbow brood - who are insisting their father finally make an honest woman of their mother.
“The kids ask about marriage,” Brad said in an interview earlier this year.
“It’s meaning more and more to them, so it’s something we’ve got to look at.”
And what kids wouldn’t want their parents bound together in a way that is recognised by more than just the two of them?
After all, it’s hardly been smooth sailing for the pair so far, from their alleged affair on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith which is believed to have led to the breakdown of Brad’s first marriage.
Angelina has never quite shook off her ‘other woman’ label in Hollywood and this long-awaited marriage could finally put an end to all that.
Now there are rumours of an intimate summer wedding at their recently-renovated Chateau Miravel mansion in France. It’s unlikely to be on the scale of his £600,000 nuptials to Jen in 2000 but with the two gorgeous stars centre stage and a wedding party likely to consist of six little bridesmaids and pageboys, it’s bound to be an event to remember.
I’m a sucker for a happy ending so ‘hear hear,’ I say! To the future Mr and Mrs Pitt!
