To the shock of the entire Hollywood-loving world, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally tied the knot on Thursday, August 28.
It was a sudden move for sure, but really not that much of a surprise when you look back at all of the beautiful things the couple has said about each other over the years. There have been numerous mushy, gushy quotes about love, marriage, and everything in between, but here are our absolute favorites that prove -- without a doubt -- that these two belong together:
1. Brad On Angelina's Appeal
"She’s still a bad girl, delightfully so. It’s not for public consumption."
2. Angelina On Pressure From The Kids
"The kids asked me the other day and I asked them if it was just because they wanted to have a big cake. They see movies that have the people getting married in the movies or somebody's, you know, the happily ever after. Shrek and Fiona are married. ... 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."

3. Brad On Getting Some Alone Time
"There are no secrets at our house. We tell the kids, 'Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.' They go, 'Eww, gross!' But we demand it."
4. Brad, On Why Marriage Couldn't Wait
"We’d actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out."
5. Angelina On The Big Day
"We don’t have a date, and we're not hiding anything, but we really don’t know. We talk to the kids about it once in a while. ... And one of them suggested paintball. And we thought, 'Well, different. You know, I think the important thing is that whatever we do it’s that the kids do have a great time, and we all — you know, take seriously the love, and the connection between all of us. But also just get silly and do something memorable."
6. Brad On Angelina's Double Mastectomy
"It's business as usual, she's doing great. When she wrote that piece, we had already come out the other end. It was a beautiful thing to watch and her focus now is that all people have access to the testing. If you do your research, it doesn't have to be scary, it is an empowering thing... I've been moved by every stage of this."
7. Angelina On How Brad Has Changed Her Life
"[Brad] has expanded my life in ways I never imagined. We built a family. He is not just the love my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear. I suppose what I've learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own. I’m very very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn't have that without him."
8. Angelina On Sharing Their Love Story With The Kids
"Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love. What’s going to be funny is when they think Mom and Dad are a little bit cool. Because right now, we’re not cool Mom and Dad."
9. Brad On Parenthood
“One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom.”
