Angelina Jolie is finally considering sealing her relationship with Brad Pitt by giving in to his pleas to get married.
Pals say the star’s change of heart was prompted by rumours their four-year relationship was over amid furious rows.
They could wed by the end of the summer once their current filming commitments are out of the way.
A close friend of the pair said: “Usually it’s Brad who wants to talk marriage. But this time it was Angie. An aide sent them all the Press clippings about their ‘relationship problems’ and Angelina said it was probably best if they married to put an end to the stories. Brad’s face lit up – he was thrilled.”
Reports claimed Brad, 45, had rekindled his friendship with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, 40, to Angelina’s fury – but the pal denied this.
Brad and Angelina have earmarked New Orleans for the wedding. Their six children would be involved “in a big way”, the friend added.
