Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky! Angelina Jolie just revealed that she and husband Brad Pitt had another secret wedding in California before their nuptials in France.
The actress recently admitted that they married in a ceremony in California prior to the much talked about wedding in France. Jolie explained that as Americans, they were technically not allowed to marry in France.
According to The Sun, the wedding was just so spontaneous that Jolie made the “proposal” over the phone.
“One day I said to Brad, ‘Let’s meet up at 4:30 p.m.?’ I called a justice of the peace and we signed the documents,” Jolie explained as reported by The Sun.
Back in a 2006 Esquire article, the couple declared they “would only consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country, who wants to be married, is legally able.” The power couple’s statement made a huge impact and brought massive international attention to the cause. The couple said to be amongst the firsts to fight for marriage equality regardless of gender and sexual orientation.
So, what changed their mind, you ask?
Angelina says their decision to get married was more for the kids’ sake rather than their own.
“It seems to mean more and more to our kids,” she explained.
They exchanged vows inside an ancient chapel at Chateau Miraval in Correns, France last August. The actress was said to walk down the aisle with eldest sons Maddox and Pax, while Zahara and Vivienne served as adorable flower girls while their 20 guests hummed the traditional processional tune “Here Comes the Bride.”
