April 2012: Jolie, Pitt Confirm They Are Engaged
Representatives for Pitt and Jolie confirmed that the couple was planning, at long last, to tie the knot. "It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy," Pitt's manager, Cynthia Pett-Dante, told People, adding, "There's no date set at this time." The ring, which Pitt designed with Jeweler Robert Procop, features 16-carats of emerald-cut diamonds. Early reports pegged its value at $1million; that figure was later revised downward to half a million dollars and finally a reported $250,000.
