    Happy for the both of them and their family.
    PS. And the ring is gorgeous! Very elegant, very classy. You did good, Brad, you did real good.

  • Genevieve

    Good luck to all of them!

  • Trish

    Angelina and Brad Pitt engagement was the best engagement news. The fact that Brad took a yr to design the ring is so romantic. They are so inspiring family. God bless them.

  • Wanda

    Jolie Pitt are so beautiful!!!!! Mr & Mrs Smith nupital is coming true, yeah!

  • Frank

    Best news was the engagement of Brad and Angelina! They are great role models and give so much of their time and money to help make this world a better place to live. It is so good to hear about them and glad they are going to wed. Congrats to them.

  • Cece

    Love keeps blossoming at the Jolie Pitt household. So very happy for them and their engagement. Her ring is so beautiful and flawless.

  • JustJared flops

    What about Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux???
    They got engaged this year too! It was on august I think.

  • Shreya

    The one and only engagement the world was waiting for was Brad and Angelina’s… Now we just have to wait for the wedding of the century. May God keep this family together and forever happy :)

  • Gah

    Did we miss one of the other big engagement news for the year? Shocking consider the profile of that news?

  • Natalie

    Even Jared knows that Jennifer and Justin’s engagement is not news worthy and that is it publicity stunt… Take that you all hypocritical JustJen fans….

  • Janet

    Brad and Angelina aren’t engaged. As per Brad he gave her a promise ring. Whatever that is. Don’t hold your breath for any wedding…

  • Gina

    Brangelina engagement was the best news ever. Now can’t wait for the wedding. Woo hoo.

  • Mel

    Brad and Angelina forever

  • Susan

    @Janet: promise or engagement ring, at least she did have to pay for it like some people walking around with a Hall’s cough drop on her finger, that her unemployed Gigolo could not afford.

  • Aletha

    in my opinion the most significative engaged of the year was jennifer aniston’s. she was so unlucky in love but recently she had found the right guy and is going to marry. i mean it is a big deal!!!

  • MissSPPP

    I really don’t know who a large majority of the people on the list are!! However, I really like Aaron Paul…happy for him, and you left Justin and Jennifer off? On purpose? Or just because there’s already been so much press this weekend?

  • MissSPPP


    Oh, my bad. I see they’re on the list.

  • JustJared flops

    There we go! JustJared has already fixed! Now they included Jennifer Aniston on the list.

  • Natalie

    They have put on Jennifer’s engagement after lots of begging from her lunatic fans… haha shows that she doesnt have anything going for her except showing her supposedly amazing body and hair..

  • http://ewrwqer ohohrich


  • Gah

    Considering she’s one of the top celebs on this site (and many other sites) it was a glaring oversight…. Or done on purpose to placate the brangeloons who infest this site (and the real bullies)

  • Gah

    *and ARE the really bullies on this board

  • Gah

    I think it was on purpose. It affects popular celebrity stats so this is a way to manage it….of course kind of backfired here…

  • pretty much

    JP fans are the most annoying fans of hollywood! seriously.

  • DULC€

    pretty much #24…
    The most annoying fans of Hollywood… Robsten fans!! and the most VILE fans of Hollywood… Anistons fans!!
    And that is the truth!!

  • Clan

    @Shreya: the world was waiting? Only you with no social life!

    For the year 2012, the most SURPRISING, ROMANTIC & BEST CELEBRITY NEWS I have ever heard was the engagement of Brad & Angelina.
    Surprising because I never thought they have plans to make their union official. They have been been together for almost eight years already and everything about them as a couple is just awesome. They seem to find what makes their relationship work. They really have learned so much lessons from their respective past relationships.
    Romanticbecause of the length of time, research & effort that Brad spent just to come up with the most suited engagement ring for his lady love, and he’s very good in keeping it a secret before he popped up the proposal to her. I could just imagine the day he finally asked her to marry him. The scenario must really be special.
    It is the best celebrity news as every news outlets, shows, net sites, magazines spread the good news. It became the talk around the world for a long time. Now there is endless speculations as to the wedding details. So it is no wonder why the Brad-Angelina wedding is the most-awaited event in 2013. Of course, there are other personalities who were engaged this year BUT no one beats the kind of news that Brad-Angie engagement has generated. This news just fascinated the public, admirers or not!

    believe it or not, most of the A-list engagements are boring (OK if I se that pix of AJ’s leg one more time,I’m gonnat have to rip it of spear some fish with it) as for the B and D list-who cares
