EXCLUSIVE FILE PICTURE dated February 27 2004. FILE PHOTO dated Monday January 9, 2012. MR. AND MRS. PITT - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have gotten engaged after Seven years as a couple. In these pictures the couple are seen holding hands on the set of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' in 2004. Pitt's spokeswoman Cynthia Pett-Dante told Reuters 'Yes, it's confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There's no date set at this time.' Pitt has famously been quoted as saying the couple would not wed until gay marriage was legal in the United States. ORIGINAL CAPTION: Brad Pitt holding hands with Angelina Jolie on the set of 'Mr and Mrs Smith', beginning speculation that his marriage to Jennifer Aniston is in trouble. Things appear to have escalated in the past 11 months, after Jennifer was pictured without her wedding ring, described by friends as 'her pride and joy'. It is the latest sign that all is not well, following months of denials in the press and recently, Brad's abruptly cancelled birthday party in London. Rumours began after Brad, 41, grew close to co-star Jolie on set. Both denied an affair. Jennifer has spent the last two weeks in London, filming the British movie 'Derailed', leaving Brad alone at the 'Ocean's 12' premiere. She and Brad were expected to spend last weekend together after he flew to London on Thursday to promote the film, but he flew home alone on a private jet after just 24 hours, while Jennifer followed hours later. There have been strong hints that Brad's desire to start a family, coupled with Jennifer's scheduling commitments, may be the source of the contention. Earlier this month, Brad looked close to breaking down during an interview with TV host Diane Sawyer, saying he had 'family on the mind'..
