Jeweler spills the beans on Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt engagement
So at first we were convinced that this was a Friday the 13th hoax, but several reputable outlets (you know, like Us Weekly) are reporting some news we’ve waited so very long to hear — Brangelina is getting married!
Angelina Jolie was spotted sporting an outrageously ginormous diamond ring (Would you expect anything less? This is, what — Brad Pitt’s third time buying an engagement ring?) strategically placed in plain sight on her left finger during an outing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Chinese Galleries on Wednesday.
It appears the engagement heard ’round the world was first confirmed via the man who designed the sparkly stunner — jeweler Robert Procop.
“I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt,” a rep for the jeweler told Us Weekly.
What else is confirmed? Well, probably that Procop didn’t sign any kind of confidentiality agreement with Brangelina, otherwise he’d be in a big heap of trouble right now for breaking the news that most couples like to tell themselves.
However, if we’ve learned anything about Hollywood jewelers, it’s that they can sometimes lie. Remember the rep for jeweler Gurhan who claimed he designed Halle Berry’s engagement ring from Olivier Martinez? Yeah, lie.
But, The Hollywood Reporter has also gotten confirmation from Brad Pitt’s rep who 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.”
Now that that’s out of the way, we’ll be watching Brangelina like a hawk over these next few months, as we lie in wait for any and every detail in what’s going to be the celebrity wedding of the century!
