Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are apparently ready to tie the knot after six years of being together publicly and building a family, according to reports.
The wedding, which has been in the works for quite some time according to OK! Magazine, is now being planned because the two Hollywood stars have been able to "bury their differences."
"The wedding was totally off: [Brad and Angelina] were having so many arguments," an alleged confidante told OK! "They've finally managed to bury their differences."
However, this report contradicts previous statements from Pitt about marrying Jolie. The couple has previously stated that they will not be married until marriage is redefined to include homosexuals, and is legal throughout the U.S.
"We're not splitting up," Pitt told Parade magazine, addressing rumors of a split in September of 2011. "We'll get married when everyone can."
OK! Also propagated previously discredited rumors that Angelina Jolie is pregnant with twins; the source alleged that the arrival of the twins was the catalyst the made the couple rethink their refusal to marry.
"Angie is expecting twins this fall, so it is making them feel a time crunch," the anonymous source reported to OK! "They decided they'd both like to welcome their twins boys to the world as man and wife, which means the wedding has to happen fairly soon. They've both realized how much they want to be together."
Despite the tabloid rumors' lack of credibility- they reported that the couple had secretly married, were rushing to marry to spite Jennifer Aniston, and reported on a false Aniston wedding in 2011- there is evidence that there is pressure for the two get hitched.
Jolie told "Nightline" in December of 2011 that her children had asked when she and Pitt would be married.
"They have asked … yeah, because … people get married in the movies," said the actress. She also said she tried to explain to them how she and Pitt could be committed without actually being married.
"We explained to them that our commitment, when we decided to start a family, was the greatest commitment you could possibly have," Jolie said. "Once you have six children, you're committed."
No wedding plans are currently in the works, however, according to GossipCop.com.
