The Oscar Award-winning actress is a mother of six and recently became engaged to longtime partner Brad Pitt. The couple is rumored to marry within the next year, but have not set a date.

"We truly have no date," said Pitt during the Cannes Film Festival last month. "We actually, really, truly have no date."

The 48-year-old actor has been in a relationship with Jolie since 2005.

"We're still hoping we figure out marriage equality in the States before that date," added Pitt, referring to his endorsement of same-sex marriage, before noting that his engagement was "something that made sense."

Meanwhile, Jolie did not attend the film festival because she was "prepping for a movie," said Pitt.

Jolie was born in Los Angeles, Calif. to actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. Her godparents are actors Jacqueline Bisset and Maximillian Schell.

Forbes has named Jolie Hollywood's highest-paid actress in both 2009 and 2011, and she has received an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globe Awards.

Highly scrutinized by the media, the actress shares three adopted children and three biological children with Pitt: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne. The couple has homes in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Cambodia, France, and Italy.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the couple's fourth eldest child, celebrated her sixth birthday on May 27.

In the past, Jolie has opened up about parenting alongside Pitt, naming her fiancée the disciplinarian.

"I used to be the tougher parent but since the birth of the twins [Knox and Vivienne, 4], Brad's had to play bad cop more often," said the "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" star, according to The Inquisitr.

"It also depends on which one of the children we are talking about," she added.

Jolie also revealed that Pitt has an extraordinary bond with Maddox, their eldest child, who she affectionately referred to as "Mad."

"Brad has always had this incredible bond with Mad," said the actress. "[Maddox] is very smart, and Brad loves teaching him about history and art and culture- it's an amazing thing to watch them together."

While the already large family is preparing for a wedding, many speculate that Pitt and Jolie may have more children in the future.
