Actress Angelina Jolie was in tears when her beau Brad Pitt gathered their six children and proposed to her, as she was overwhelmed by the gesture.
"Angelina cried and smiled," contactmusic.com quoted a source as saying.
The children were also overjoyed with Pitt's proposal to Jolie, as it came after seven years of togetherness. It was an emotional moment for the family.
"Everyone hugged once she put the ring on. She went around and showed it to each of the kids. Angie considers herself bonded to Brad for life," added the source.
It is believed Pitt's proposal was made during Christman last year, but the duo kept it under wraps so that it would not overshadow the promotions of Jolie's directorial debut film "In the Land of Blood and Honey".
"She was very busy with the movie and her Oscar campaign. She also worried that the engagement would take over press on her film and detract from that," said the source.
