Hollywood supercouple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reported to be planning to get married, after months of speculation about the future of their relationship.
The impending nuptials, which come after the pair have lived together for five years, were prompted by their children, who demanded that their parents marry, according to the American OK! magazine.
"First it was Maddox, who has begged his parents to tie the knot for years. Lately, Shiloh and Zahara have been chiming in, and Pax thinks it would just be the coolest thing ever to be a ring bearer," a source told the magazine.
"Usually people fall in love and everything revolves around the ritual of marriage, children are an afterthought. We did everything backwards" Jolie reportedly said.
The wedding would be Jolie's third and Pitt's second. Jolie has been married to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton. Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston for five years.
The pair have three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, as well as three biological children, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne.
News of the wedding comes months after it was erroneously reported in the media that the couple were separating.
The stars met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005, while Pitt was still married.
In October 2006 the actor said that the couple would only marry when everyone in America was legally allowed to.
