5 Things You Don’t Know About the Brangelina Engagement

By admin, Published Apr 30, 2012

It's been just over a year since Kate Middleton became the Duchess of Cambridge after tying the knot to Prince William in what many have called the wedding of the century. But Hollywood A-Listers (like Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt, Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake, Anne Hathaway & Adam Shulman, to name a few) are poised to give the royal couple a run for their money! And today we're revealing five little known facts about the much-anticipated Brangelina engagement!

#5- Maddox was the mastermind behind the engagement: All six of Brad and Angelina's kids were pushing for a proposal, but the eldest son, Maddox, was the real driver behind making it happen. 

#4- Second time's the charm: This isn't the first time Brad's popped the question to Angie. The first proposal happened while Angelina was pregnant with Shiloh...and Angelina said no.

#3- Chateau Miraval could be the venue: The couple's sprawling French chateau features a 16th-century chapel right on the grounds, and the entire estate is under renovation. Those closest to the couple think that Chateau Miravel could be the spot that Brangelina make it official, and are placing their bets on an intimate midsummer wedding (either this year or next).

#2- Brad didn't get down on one knee: This one disappointed me a bit! Instead of going the traditional route, dropping to one knee to pop the question, Brad simply presented the engagement ring to Angelina as a token of his unwavering love.

#1- Angelina's tablet-shaped diamond engagement ring by Procop took a full year to design, features 16 sparkling carats, and is worth a whopping $500,000!

Do these five fun facts surprise you? And...are you excited for Brad and Angelina to get hitched? Which celebrity couple's wedding are you most looking forward to?
