Happy Thursday! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are married. This is the moment America has been waiting for for years now, through rumors and fake-outs and matching couples tattoos. We even waited past Brad’s absurd Chanel No. 5 ads! And now they are married. In fact, they got married this past weekend–but nobody knew about it until today. Pretty incredible given their profile, eh?
According to the Associated Press via ABC News, the pair were married on Saturday at Chateau Miraval, France. The ceremony included all their children (Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 6) and was attended by family and close friends only. So, y’know, no televised wedding specials like some folks we know. No cameras, no tabloids, no paparazzi, no “behind-the-scenes” photos. Just a simple wedding for two of the most famous people in the world.
It’s hard not to love Brad and Angelina as one of the most famous couples in the world. She is a wise, strong woman and he has proven himself–at least publicly–to be a supportive partner. They are basically the actor and actress version of Jay Z and Beyonce, but with fewer Instagram photos and so many more children. Everyone who follows pop culture cares about what they are doing, and most of us aren’t even sure why except gosh, they are entertaining. So when they do things they have managed to keep secret for a long time, it is even more surprising than when, say, somebody like Katy Perry brings a the closest thing we have to an alien and wears all denim to the VMAs.
The only question left: did they both wear Chanel No. 5 or just Brad? Okay, fine, the only real question is actually what Angelina wore because you know it was glorious. Anyway, congratulations to them! And shame on the psychics of the world for not giving us a heads up that this was coming, hrrrmph.
