What Made Brangelina Finally Get Married

I once met Brad not too long ago and was in awe. It wasn’t because he was Brad Pitt.  It was because he was a humble man who was just plain kind. Like everyone else, I wish him and Angelina a lifetime of love and happiness following their recent nuptials. To them, though, it’s probably anti-climactic. Let’s not forget Brad’s interview years ago when he confessed his heart was yearning for a house full of kids. But he already had that … happiness, lots of kids, a woman he admired and adored, and the commitment he desired. So, what prompted him to finally get married?

When Brad and Angelina started living together, they believed a little piece of paper wasn’t needed to prove to the world they were happy and going to be together forever. However, many children and one serious health scare later, now the couple is married. They also stated publicly that they would not marry until everyone else in our country could also legally do so, throwing their mega-watt star power behind the national campaign for LGBT marriage rights. But now they’ve walked down the aisle anyway. So, what happened?

Well, Brad has stated in interviews that little people in their lives (a.k.a. their kids) were laying on the pressure and questioning their state of matrimony.  Brad and Angelina decided to make their love legal and, impressively, even managed to keep it a secret for a few days. Though the couple initially believed that a piece of paper had no real value in regard to the strength of their love, it turns out that their kids feel that piece of paper means something more. To children, that piece of paper symbols a lifetime of commitment and security for them to have a married mom and dad. However naive and romantic that might seem to us adults.

So, are Brad and Angelina more committed now that they are married? I believe so, for the following reasons:

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Sell Wedding Pics For $2 Million To Two Mags

While newlyweds Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross can’t seem to find a publication willing to buy their nuptial photos, recently wed Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie landed two–not one–deal for their exclusive wedding photos. Brangelina got $2 million for the wedding pics they sold to People and Hello! magazines. This comes one week following their private August 23 ceremony in France.

“Publishing insiders tell us that People and Hello! joined forces to pony up the cash for the exclusive shots of Brangelina’s union,” reports The New York Daily News.

Although the couple is usually deeply private they have in the past opened up their personal lives for magazines. They sold the first photos of daughter Shiloh to People for $4 million in 2006. The money went to charity. And in 2007, the pair had another deal with People and Hello!, selling first photos of their son Pax for an undisclosed sum. In 2008, it is rumored they received a record $14 million from People for first photos of twins Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon.

No word if the couple, whose combines net worth is estimated to be around $385 million, will give the $2 million to charity this time.

We’re also expecting wedding day photos of Ross and Simpson to pop up any minute now. They were unable to land a Pitt-Jolie type of exclusive for their big wedding and were hustling around on Labor Day to salvage some sort of deal.

When you compare this amount to what Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made on their wedding, it seems like Brangelinea settled too low. Kim and Kanye were estimated to have made $21 million from their May nuptials, when you tally up the more than $15 million offered by E! to tape the event along with other deals. But we’ll bet when they didn’t get paid in dollars and cents, Brad and Angie got in the intimacy they clearly crave.

I’s Married Now! Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Tied The Knot On The Low-Low Last Weekend

According to the Associated Press, Brat Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally tied the knot after years of the press wondering if and when they would.

According to a spokesman for the couple, they wed on Saturday in Correns in France in a private ceremony. The wedding was attended by family and friends in a small chapel at the Chateau Miraval, which is a wine chateau that the couple own. Before the wedding, they obtained a marriage license in California from a judge who flew to France to conduct the ceremony.

According to the AP, the couple’s children had roles in the wedding. Jolie walked down the aisle with her sons Maddox and Pax, while Zahara and Vivienne threw flower petals, and Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers. The couple were engaged back in 2012, and often said that they wouldn’t get married until gay marriage was legal. But after the engagement news broke, Pitt said they were doing it for their kids.

“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. I’m not going to go any further. But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.”

This is the third marriage for Jolie, who was married to actor Jonny Lee Miller (actor from the show “Elementary”) in the late ’90s and actor Billy Bob Thornton for three years before divorcing in 2003. This is the second marriage for Pitt, who we all know was married to Jennifer Aniston from 2000 to 2005. Pitt met Jolie while still married to Aniston when they came together to film Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Congratulations to the couple and their family!

Eva Longoria

As the “Desperate Housewives’” Gabby Solis, Eva Longoria played a former model turned homemaker who wouldn’t be caught dead wearing anything off of the racks. But before she headed to Hollywood, Longoria worked for six years at a Wendy’s restaurant in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. She used part of her hard-earned money to pay for her own quinceañara and to help cover some of the cost of cheerleading in high school.

Idris Elba

We fell in love with him even though he played the cold-blooded killer and drug kingpin Stringer Bell in the widely popular HBO series “The Wire.” But the role forced him to hide his accent and once fans found out that Idris Elba was really an English actor, he became even sexier. After starring in a few moves, Elba went back to his television roots and starred in the BBC One series “Luther.” Elba will be celebrating his first Father’s Day this year. A few months ago he and his girlfriend Niayana Garth welcomed their first child, Winston.

The Game and Tiffney Cambridge

The Game popped the question to actress and model Valeisha Butterfield, the mother of his first child, but they never made it down the aisle.

Despite their on and off relationship, the California rapper once again got down on bended knee and proposed to Cambridge. The couple was the star of their own reality show “Marrying The Game” for two seasons but after wedding bells failed to ring, The Game and the mother of his two children called it quits earlier this year.
