The day has come. Brangelina are officially Mr. and Mrs. Pitt! That’s right, Hollywood’s hottest couple has finally tied the knot! And what better way to celebrate this long-awaited union of beauty, brains and talent than a walk down Brad and Angie memory lane with tons of photos of this dream couple. Once upon a time…
Brad Pitt, 50, and Angelina Jolie, 39, finally said “I do” on Aug. 23 in France. The couple first met in 2003, as two of Hollywood’s hottest stars on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Nine years later, the pair has walked down the aisle at Chateau Miraval and we have a huge gallery of the everything-in-between. Check it out!
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Wedding: Their Relationship In Pictures
It’s been 11 years since sparks flew for the gorgeous and dynamic duo on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and now Angelina and Brad are finally a real-life Mr. and Mrs. Cheers to that!
Brad and Angelina started filming the movie in 2003, playing a married couple who are hired as assassins to kill each other. Their chemistry was off-the-charts sexy, so it’s no surprise these two developed a romance behind the scenes.
Cut to April 2005 and the first (of many) paparazzi shots of Brad and Angie surfaced. The pics were taken on a beach in Kenya and not only showed Brad and Angelina, but Angie’s son Maddox, now 13, as well. Those photos proved what everyone had been thinking (and secretly hoping), that Brangelina was in fact a thing!
By July 2005, although the couple was still not confirming they were an item, they did pose for a photo shoot together, doing a spread for W Magazine titled “Domestic Bliss.”
That same month, Angie adopted her second child, Zahara, now 9.
Then it happened. On January 11, 2006, Angelina confirmed to People that she was pregnant with Brad’s first child. And the rest is history with Angelina changing her kids’ last names to Jolie-Pitt and making Brad a legal adoptive parent of Maddox and Zahara.
The happy family welcomed their first biological child, Shiloh, in May 2006. Just about a year later, in March 2007, Brad and Angie adopted Pax, now 9, from Vietnam. Although Angie had to file for the adoption as a single parent due to Vietnamese law prohibiting non-married couples from adopting, she made Pax’s legal last name Jolie-Pitt as soon as they reached the U.S.
In July 2008, the most recent additions to the Jolie-Pitt fam were born — twins Knox and Vivienne, now 6.
First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage
When asked why the duo with a growing family hadn’t tied the knot, their response was always that they would not get married until all Americans were afforded marriage rights. It was such a beautiful sentiment and made sense considering how active Brad and Angie are in advocating for justice and peace worldwide.
But in 2012, Brad admitted that the kids were really putting their foot down for them to tie the knot!
When asked about it by The Hollywood Reporter, Brad said, “We’d actually like to [get married] and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”
