Their destination is reportedly the exclusive Royal Palm Hotel, and they arrived in style, first to Baltra, Ecuador, on a private jet – and then, according to Ecuador’s El Universo, on board the Reina Silvia, one of the area’s most luxurious yachts.

Jolie, who has long worked with the United Nations, recently received a promotion to the position of Special Envoy of High Commissioner António Guterres.

Family members are happy too, Brad’s brother, Doug Pitt, told the Springfield News-Leader.

“I would just say, Angie has been family from day one. This doesn’t change anything there. We are excited for them and the kids and the family. It’s a great step and one we are glad to see happen.”

Doug also said a date has not been set. When it is, he doubts his brother’s wedding will happen in Springfield.

“He loves Springfield,” Doug said, “but I don’t know that it will make it to the top of the list.”

Wherever it does occur, “I’m looking forward to it,” the Springfield businessman said.

The Beverly Hills jeweler and former CEO of Asprey & Garrard, the British jewelry company to the English royal family, confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that he has designed an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie. A rep for the jeweler says, “I can confirm that, yes, Robert Procop did indeed design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie, designed in collaboration with Brad Pitt.”

Procop tells THR: “Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suite Angelina’s hand. Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”

It’s not a huge surprise, but today comes word from Fox Searchlight that the entire cast of The Tree of Life — notably Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain — will be campaigned in the supporting categories this awards season. It’s a strategy that’s been used for several ensemble films in the recent past, like Babel and Slumdog Millionaire. (Babel‘s Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi ended up scoring Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actress, while Slumdog‘s Dev Patel earned a SAG nod in the supporting-male race.)

For Pitt, the move heads off any potential vote splitting between his performances in Tree of Life and Moneyball, since the latter is clearly a lead role. But for Chastain, it’s muddier: The actress, who’ll end up costarring in six films released in 2011, will now be the recipient of supporting campaigns for Tree and The Help, just for starters.
