Angelina recently revealed in an interview how their kids often asked why there were not married ‘like Shrek and Fiona’.
Brad recently admitted he didn’t feel they’d be to wait that long because of mounting pressure from their children.
‘It seems to mean more and more to our kids,’ he said in January.
‘We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to [get married] till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out, it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.’
Angelina’s father Jon Voight was among the first to publicly congratulate the pair, telling a weekly periodical, ‘I’m very happy for them.’
