Los Angeles: Hollywood star couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have secretly got married in France after nine years of courtship.
The pair, who raise six children together, tied the knot on Saturday at Chateau Miraval, their French getaway since 2008, in presence of close family members and friends, US media reported.

Jolie, 39 and Pitt met on the set of Doug Linman's spy caper 'Mr and Mrs Smith' in 2005. They began dating shortly after Pitt, 50, ended his five-year marriage to Jennifer Aniston. The pair got engaged in 2012 after Pitt proposed Jolie with a custom-made diamond ring that he designed.
The couple's children -- Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and 6-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, took part in the wedding ceremony.
The actress-philanthropist was walked down the aisle by her eldest sons Pax and Maddox, while the other children Zahara and Vivienne threw petals and Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.
The two had earlier said they wouldn't get married until "everyone else in the country" had the right to get married.
The couple obtained a marriage licence beforehand from a California judge who travelled to France to conduct the ceremony.
This is Jolie's third marriage- she was previously married to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.
The newly-married couple are set to begin shooting Jolie's next directorial venture 'By the Sea', in Malta. The film is their first on-screen reunion since 'Mr & Mrs Smith'.
