Save the date!
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will tie the knot at their vast chateau in the south of France this summer, according to published reports.
The 16th century estate provides all the privacy needed for the wedding of the world's most glamorous couple. There's even a chapel on site where they will exchange vows.
200 guests are expected to recieve invites, including George Clooney and Matt Damon. But the focus will be on family—Brad's parents, Bill and Jane, his brother Doug, Jolie's brother, James, and of course, their six kids.
Also on the guest list is Jolie's once-estranged father, Jon Voight, with whom she's now reconciled.
Pitt's first wife, Jennifer Aniston is said to be "at peace" with the upcoming wedding. There are even reports that she'll be invited.
Grooms-to-be go to Tiffany's on New York's 5th Avenue to choose one of their famous engagement rings. But Brad Pitt designed Angelina Jolie's ring himself and brought the elaborate design to a jeweler in Beverly Hills. Then, it took a full year to create.
The diamonds set on a band of gold have an art deco feel. The jewels were all cut to suit Jolie's hand. Experts say the 10-carat sparkler cost $1 million.
People magazine went to press two days early to put the superstar couple on the new cover.
People magazine Assistant Managing Editor Kate Coyne told INSIDE EDITION, "The stone is actually a custom cut, which means it's not a emerald cut, it's not an asscher cut. This is a stone that was faceted by a design made by Brad. It is very, very exclusive and truly one of a kind."
So why now, after seven years together?
It was their kids who really "put on the heat," according to Pitt.
On CBS Sunday Morning, Brad Pitt said, "We're getting a lot of pressure from the kids. 'Get mommy a ring.' Okay, I will, I will."
Coyne told INSIDE EDITION, "In recent months, Brad has actually been dropping some pretty clear signals that this was on its way. So clearly, he's a man of his word."
