After almost nine years of dating and months of speculation, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have tied the knot.
The couple has been together since 2005, after meeting on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Along with their adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, they are also parents to daughter, Shiloh, and twins, Knox and Vivienne.
