On Friday, April 13, the long awaited news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were tying the knot was released with the actor's manager, Cynthia Pett-Dante, confirming the news to USA Today. The exciting event is sure to stir up a media frenzy, and some of it has already begun over the weekend!
When, where, and what will she wear are just a few of the questions on the minds of those who follow this super attractive Hollywood power couple. At this point, the few details we have are about the "Changeling" star's ring. The "Moneyball" actor's manager said, "Yes, it's confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There's no date set at this time. Brad designed the ring."
The ring in question was said to be designed by the couple's jeweler friend Robert Procop. Procop has worked with the beautiful pair through the years and is the man behind the "Style of Jolie" jewelry line, sold on his website in cooperation with the 36-year-old brunette.
While seven years does seem like a very long time, especially in the world of Tinseltown where marriages and divorces seem to take place faster than lightening strikes in some cases, there have been a number of couples who waited even longer before saying their vows.
One of the longest Hollywood relationships in which we never thought they'd say "I do," was Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed who shockingly became man and wife after 28 years just this past fall. The Kiss frontman remarked to his daughter Sophie, "No idea what I'd been scared about all this time. [It was] this stubborn guy thing... it was really stupid."
In the vows the rocker wrote he said, "I always thought I was strong. You made me realize how arrogant, selfish and weak I was. I've never said 'I love you' to anybody, but I love you, Shannon Tweed. With all my heart, for the rest of my life."
Talk show host David Letterman took nearly as long as Simmons to come around. After a 23-year-relationship, the 65-year-old and his long time love, Regina Lasko, married in a Montana courthouse in March of 2009 in the presence of their son, Harry, born in 2003.
Letterman remarked, "I had avoided getting married pretty good for, like, 23 years and I ... secretly felt that men who were married admired me, like I was the last of the real gunslingers."
