Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are used to fielding questions from the media about whether or not they’ll one day wed – but it sounds like now they’re having to answer them at home, too!
“They have asked, yeah, because… people get married in the movies,” Angelina tells Nightline when asked if their 6 kids wonder why their parents aren’t married. “Shrek and Fiona are married, you know?”
The actress-turned-director (her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, is set to hit theaters later this month) says that she explains to the children that she and Brad don’t need to be married to be committed to one another.
“We’ve explained to them that our commitment, when we decided to start a family, was the greatest commitment you could possibly have. Once you have six children, you’re committed.”
She adds that she questions whether the kids have an alterior motive for wanting mom and dad to walk down the aisle: “I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a big cake.”
