They are one of Hollywood's hottest couples and have been the talk of Tinseltown since they first got together seven years ago. Now Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are engaged to marry.

"Yes, it's confirmed," Cynthia Pett-Dante,a spokeswoman for Pitt, told Reuters. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There's no date set at this time."

Earlier this week, Jolie, Pitt and their son Pax attended a private viewing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art when the Oscar-winning actress was wearing the large, rectangular diamond ring on her left hand.

Jewelry maker Robert Procop said he had fashioned the ring in collaboration with Pitt, specifically for the actress.

In a statement, Procop's spokeswoman said: "The full creative journey - from conception to completion - took a year, with Brad Pitt waiting until the perfect moment to unveil this special jewel to Angelina Jolie."

Pitt, 48, and Jolie, 36, have six children together - three biological and three adopted.

The couple, dubbed Brangelina, previously resisted pressure to marry, despite numerous reports over the years that a wedding was in the offing. But in January, Pitt was quoted as saying that the pair were coming under pressure from their children.

"It (marriage) seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it 'til everyone can. But I don't think we'll be able to hold out."

Pitt and Jolie became close on the set of the movie 'Mr & Mrs Smith'. At the time, Pitt was married to Friends actress Jennifer Aniston, but were later divorced.

Jolie, who won a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in 'Girl, Interrupted' in 1999, had two previous short-lived marriages to actors Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller.
