Wedding bells — finally! After Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop spilled the beans to the Hollywood Reporter that he helped Brad Pitt design an engagement ring for Angelina Jolie

, a ring she was seen wearing on Wednesday, the Brangelina camp confirmed the good news.

After seven years as a couple, Brad and Angelina are engaged with “a promise for the future,” Brad’s manager,

Cynthia Pett-Dante

confirmed. “Their kids are very happy.”

Procop, former CEO of Asprey Garrard, the British jewelry company to the English royal family, said that Brad had worked on the ring for more than a year. “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,” he says. “The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger.”

This wouldn’t be the jeweler’s first collaboration with the Brangelina camp. He collaborated with Angelina on “The Style of Jolie” jewelry collection that raises money for charity, and she has worn many of his pieces on the red carpet.

No date has been set.

“Fashion Police” co-host

Kelly Osbourne is not apologetic for calling Christina Aguilera

And say it to her face? She would do that, too.

“I make a point on the show never to say anything about anybody that I wouldn’t say directly to their face,” says Kelly, who lost more than 50 pounds two years ago.

Why us? Jada Pinkett Smith tells French magazine Gala that she has no idea why she and hubby Will Smith

are still rumored to be having marital problems.

“Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope,” she says. “This year, unluckily, it’s us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it. Will and I know the truth. We’re waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over.”

Bruce not onboard

Her sister

Khloe might be OK with it, but Kim Kardashian’s stepdad, Bruce Jenner, is “not excited” about her hooking up with Kanye West


“I’m not that excited, but we’ll see. Kimberly and I have had a conversation about them and their potential relationship,” he said at a speaking engagement at Northeastern University this week.

It’s not that Bruce isn’t a fan of Kanye’s, TMZ reports. He just doesn’t think it’s a good idea for her to rush into anything so soon after the

Kris Humphries


Finally. A voice of reason coming from that camp.
