Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie reportedly got married in secret. The celebrity couple’s spokesperson confirmed the event, likely making many fans happy. It was only a few months ago that they confirmed they were engaged because their children asked about it.
According to reports, the Mr. and Mrs. Smith stars tied the knot in a small French chapel. They have a home in Chateau Miraval, so the location seemed perfect for them. Only close friends and family members were invited, and the press certainly had no idea about the activities.
The two have always managed to find a balance between their public and private lives. While they are often spotted together and did confirm their engagement, news of their wedding planning was very quiet. Over the last few months, most of the news has been about the two working together again for the first time since the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Very few details have been shared about their relatively private ceremony. However, their children did have important parts in the ceremony. Maddox and Pax both walked Jolie down the aisle, daughters Vivienne and Zahara threw petals as flower girls and Knox and Shiloh were ring bearers. It was a truly family affair, which makes sense considering the couple make as much as possible about the family.
Pitt and Jolie have not gotten married in secret after dating for almost 10 years. They have six children together and seem extremely happy. They made the decision not to marry until their children started asking about it. After that, they decided they needed to take the next step.
Their relationship was not always without scandal. When they met in 2005, Pitt was married to Friends star Jennifer Anniston. It was a difficult breakup for the actress and many people viewed Jolie has the home-wrecker. Fans have changed their minds now that they see just how happy the two are together, especially since Anniston is moving on in her love life.
It was in 2012 that they confirmed their engagement. There was never a date set and people seemed to forget all about it. It was certainly a surprise to hear that they had secretly married.
Pitt is not the only one to have married previously. Jolie was married twice before; to Billy Bob Thornton and Johnny Lee Miller before that. Both marriages ended amicably and her ex-husbands support her.
There will be many questions about her recent wedding. When she married both Miller and Thornton blood was involved in some way. That may have been the symbolism of bloodlines mixing, but nothing was ever confirmed. Many will want to know whether blood was involved in any way with her marriage to the Troy actor.
Hopefully this marriage will be successful for the two. It is certainly the first that Jolie has not seemingly rushed into. Maybe the nine year wait has been enough to make sure that their love for each other real. Pitt and Jolie getting married in secret may have been another way to show that their love is real because it meant it was all about them and their family.
