Big Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie news:

They were married Saturday in France, a spokesman for the Pitt, 50, and Jolie, 39, tells AP.

It happened in a private ceremony attended by family and friends. The couple got a marriage license from a judge in California. He presided over the wedding in France.

The couple's children took part in the wedding. Jolie walked the aisle with her eldest sons Maddox, 13, and Pax, 10. Zahara, 9, and Vivienne, 6, threw petals. Shiloh, 8, and Knox, 6, served as ring bearers.

The Daily Mail reported that the family had been spotted arriving in France on Friday and were believed to be heading to their Chateau Miraval. But there weren't any clues beyond that.

This is a moment we've been waiting for since 2012. The two got engaged on April 13, 2012. And later that year, when asked when they were getting married, Pitt famously replied, "The time is nigh."

But it wasn't. In 2013, Jolie shared that she had undergone a double mastectomy. And the couple's work lives have been full - she had Maleficent and Unbroken on her plate. He was busy with World War Z, 12 Years a Slave and more. They even announced they'll be starring in By the Sea, their first film together since 2005's Mr & Mrs. Smith, the film that brought them together.

Seems they finally found the right moment.

And he beat his pal, George Clooney, to the altar.

Congrats, you sly star couple!
