New Idea has exclusively learnt that Angelina Jolie and her mystery Englishman, billionaire boyfriend, have decided to begin planing a lavish wedding - an are holding the secret ceremony over the weekend in a bid to show their commitment to one another.
An exclusive source told New Idea, 'Ange’s new man has been desperate to prove his love and devotion to her and so suggested they have a ‘wedding ceremony’ last weekend.'
'She was very cagey Hollywood actress has cause on the details but said it was a beautiful day, where they affirmed their love for one another in front of a celebrant and declared their commitment to each other.'
They add, 'All the kids were there – and while it was a little hard for them to understand with the split from Brad still being so raw, Maddox and Pax especially were excited to see their mum so happy again. It took place at her new man’s LA mansion, in a garden surrounded by white flowers – Ange’s favourite.'
The timing couldn't be more perfect for the mother-of-six.
With her costly custody battle said to be reportedly costing into the millions, not to mention the fact that she had to borrow $US8 million from Brad to buy her new home in LA last year, Ange 'is desperate to get married as soon as she can', the source continues.
'She thinks she’s found a real winner in husband Number 4.
'She’s impressed by his dedication to helping others and, quite frankly, by his huge bank account, which she knows will come in handy now that she no longer has Brad’s estimated $US240 million fortune … she really feels she’s hit the jackpot with her Englishman.'
And the star – who shares children Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10, with Brad – not only feels more secure when in a relationship, but she’s certain that having a man by her side will help her win custody of the kids.
'She knows having a wealthy man with deep pockets is only a good thing in her legal battles.
'Having a stable father figure in the children’s lives is going to help her get custody, and he is only too willing to help with Ange’s hefty legal bills. This is a win-win for Ange.'
