NEW YORK (AP) - After seven years as a couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are finally engaged.     

Pitt's manager, Cynthia Pett-Dante, confirmed the news to The Associated Press in an email Friday.  

There isn't a wedding date yet. The engagement "is a promise for the future," Pett-Dante said.    

Pitt, 48, and Jolie, 36, have six children together, including three who are adopted.  

"Their kids are very happy," Pett-Dante also said.   

Pitt and Jolie have been partners since they began a relationship while working on the film "Mr. & Mrs. Smith."    

Jolie was briefly married to Billy Bob Thornton, but they divorced in 2003. She was also married to British actor Jonny Lee Miller before they divorced in 1999.     

Pitt was previously married to Jennifer Aniston, but they divorced in 2005 after five years of marriage.    

Jolie won an Oscar for her role in 1999's "Girl, Interrupted." Pitt was recently nominated for an Academy Award for his role in last year's "Moneyball."
