The moment finally came! Brad Pitt proposed to Angelina Jolie after seven years of dating and six children.

Many thought that the moment would never arrive, but those who followed Brangelina’s love story remained hopeful and got their wish.

We’ve all seen them in the headlines for years and years starting with the scandal on set up until Wednesday, when the future Mrs. Pitt was spotted donning a rock on her finger at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Chinese galleries.

“It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy,” said Cynthia Pett-Dante, the heart-throb actor’s manager to People.

Well it’s about time! Let’s take a look at how this couple has grown before our eyes throughout the past seven years.

November 2008: Jen strikes back and said that Angelina’s comment was “uncool” in an interview with Vogue. She went on to say, "I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss," Aniston said. "That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool."

September 2011: More controversy stirs as Brad told Parade that his married life with Aniston wasn’t interesting. He went on to say that he was just in a bad place in his life at the end of the marriage and his relationship with Angelina brought him out of it.

January 2012: Pitt said that his children were asking why he and Jolie weren’t married stating to The Hollywood Reporter, “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. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment."

And the rest is history! We can’t wait to see all of the wedding excitement soon to come!
