Brad Pitt’s Kids Have Asked Him To “Get Mommy A Ring”

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie might get married in the future. In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning the 48-year-old actor reveals that Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5, and 3-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne have asked him to “get mommy a ring.”

He says his response was “We will someday. We will. That’s a great idea.”

He adds, “We’re getting a lot of pressure from the kids. It means something to them. They have questions when their friends’ parents are married and [they want to know] why is that?”

The Moneyball star says he’s mindful when it comes to his children.

You have less time to spend on a project. You come home and you’re Dad. You’re much more conscious of how much time you give to a production.”

Luckily the time he did spend working on the film paid off – even though it almost didn’t get made.

He shares, “This movie died on the vine, or almost died on the vine several times. Actually DID die, and we had to resuscitate it!”

Before he ran off to Hollywood Pitt thought he was going to be a journalist while he was attending college. However he never graduated.

He explains, “Here’s what happened. I was two weeks from graduation, and all of my friends had jobs lined up, and it kind of wigged me out that I wasn’t ready . . . I didn’t have one lined up, nor did I even think to line one up. I just didn’t! I just wasn’t ready to do that thing.”

    I’m sorry but i’m already fed up with this topic. And not only that, but i think it’s ridiculous the way they’re taking it. Seriously, will they marry just because their kids want them to get married? Is that really what they have in mind? I put myself in their shoes and i don’t think i’d marry just because my kids want me to. It doesn’t make any sense. Maybe in a Hollywood “fairy tale” or in a Hallmark movie, but not in real life.

      I agree. I respected their previous stance about the ultimate commitment being their children (after all, how much more committed to someone can you get than having six children together?), and the fact that they had stated that they wouldn’t marry until the option was available for everyone. Each to their own, but I do hope that if they do get engaged, Brad picks out a non-diamond ring. After all the wonderful humanitarian work Angelina’s undertaken in places like Sierra Leone, it would be very wrong of her to wear a real diamond… It would be great to see her promoting lab-created diamonds, for example, many of which are structurally identical to mined diamonds, and thereby educating the masses about the ugly side of ‘real’ diamonds from a human rights perspective.

      Yeah, it feels like it comes up every interview. At this point it’s tired. The kids are giving them pressure. We get it. Unless/Until they decide to to it (and pick a date) I don’t see the point in continuing to discuss it. And yeah, I agree the reason is flimsy. Kids want a lot of things. your decisions as a couple shouldn’t be based on their whim. It should be based on your feelings about marriage and what it means to you as a couple.

    They drag out the “the kids want us to get married” story every time either one of them is angling for an academy award. Very predictable, very boring.

      They get ASKED about it, they answer. It’s really very simple.

        It’s not that simple. Just because a question is asked does not mean it has to be answered. People are free to say they’d like to keep some things private. Which they often do, only not when somebody’s trying to win something or push a project.
