The prenup reveals the huge pool of money and property Hollywood’s hottest couple will be managing- and blows apart their denials of an impending marriage.
The happy stars not only intend to take their vows, but also want at least two more children- one biological and one adopted, The ENQUIRER has learned.
The painstaking prenup will ensure a happy, well-provided life for all their children.
And if the marriage- Brad’s second and Angelina’s third- crumbles, it will protect the assets of both.
“They don’t want anything left to chance,�? an insider told The ENQUIRER. “They are straightening out all their financial arrangements before the big day so they can kiss at the altar knowing they have taken care of every eventuality.
“After all, they have both been there before and know what can happen, and even though they love each other, it hasn’t been a picture-perfect life. Brad and Angelina have had their share of fights over everything from how to raise the kids to jealousies- especially over Jennifer Anniston. Although they’ve denied they plan to get married the prenup proves they have changed their minds. They are working on having another biological baby and are going to adopt again soon. So they decided to get all their affairs in order with the prenup. With their growing family- four kids so far- they realize it is more sensible to be married. They want to make sure everything Is down on paper. The kids will be their legal heirs, without any confusion over their status. With a detailed prenup the kids will never have to see their parents fighting over money if the marriage goes sour.�?
For now the couple want to keep the precise location of the wedding a secret, even from close family and friends, but The ENQUIRER has learned they favor an April ceremony in Italy.
“They’ve loved Italy ever since they spent time there while on a break from filing, and they’ve talked about a small wedding in Tuscany of near George Clooney’s mansion in the Lake Como region,�? divulged the insider.
Angelina has also told friends she might like a simple ceremony in Vietnam, close to the orphanage where they adopted their latest adoption to the family, 3-year-old Pax.
The prenup hasn’t been finalized, but the two superstars have been ironing out their financial positions on paper. Brad’s fortune has been estimated at $150 million and Angelina’s at about $70 million.
Brad hauls in $35 million a movie and Angelina, 32, commands $20 million per film.
The 43-year-old actor owns approximately $25 million worth of property in Malibu, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. Angelina still has her $4 million, 8-bedroom converted farmhouse in Buckinghamshire, England.
The couple jointly own the $3.5 million, 6-bedroom home in New Orleans they bought while Brad was filming.
And Brad’s production company, Plan B, has become a money-maker.
The generous couple’s substantial donations to charities around the world will also figure into the prenup.
“When they get married, they will have every last penny accounted for,�? said the insider. “They are responsible parents and don’t want any confusion about what will happen should the marriage fall apart. They will ensure that Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh and Pax won’t want for a single thing for the rest of their lives. On top of that list, hopefully, will be a happily married mom and dad.�?
Although the pair’s relationship has been strained in recent months, Angelina recently relented on her vow never to marry again, say friends.
“I think Angie wants her kids to have married parents and give them the kind of stable family she never had,�? confided the insider. “She really believes Brad is the great love of her life. When her mother passed away from cancer in January, she realized that life is too short to wait. She didn’t want to be rushed into anything, but they are talking about a marriage next spring.�?
Although reps for the couple deny they’re planning to get married, insiders say nothing will keep them from becoming husband and wife.
“Brad has never made any secret of his desire to marry Angie, so he is thrilled.�?
But don’t look for a five-star, Hollywood-spectacular wedding.
“They are planning a quiet celebration just for family and close friends,�? revealed the insider. “Neither wants the kind of big fanfare that accompanied Tom Cruise’s wedding to Katie Holmes.�?
Brad is looking forward to his beautiful bride’s reconciliation with her dad, actor Jon Voight, and his presence at the wedding, according to the insider.
