Faces & Names: Pitt, Jolie are married in France
It happened: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got married in France on Saturday, a spokesman told the Associated Press.
The apparently secret, much-anticipated nuptials occurred at their Provence home Chateau Miraval, and were attended by an unspecified number of friends and family, including the pair’s six children.
The couple has been together for nine years and announced their engagement two years ago. They got their marriage license from a California judge, who also performed the ceremony.
Jolie said in the past that they would wed if their children — Maddox, 13; Pax, 10; Zahara, 9; Shiloh, 8; and twins Knox and Viv, 6 — asked, and apparently they did. Pitt told CBS News in 2012: “We’re getting a lot of pressure from the kids.
“Yeah, it means something to them, and they’re, you know, they have questions when their friends’ parents are married and, why is that?”
Pitt had once said that he and Jolie wouldn’t tie the knot until all Americans had the equal right to do so.
