Well they were never going to make a big show and tell Kimye style now were they.

Yes, power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are officially married after being together for nine years and making a brood of three adopted and three biological children. The couple married in France last Saturday before jetting off to Malta this week to film their upcoming romantic drama 'By The Sea'.

A spokesperson for the couple confirmed the news to The Associated Press this afternoon, who then tweeted it.

According to the same spokesperson, the ceremony took place in a small chapel attended by their family and friends at Chateau Miraval, in the village of Correns, which the couple has rented since 2008.

Pitt and Jolie obtained a marriage licence from a local California judge in advance, and the same judge also conducted the ceremony in France.

And in typical Jolie-Pitt style it was a family affair, with Jolie's eldest sons Maddox and Pax walking her down the aisle, while Zahara and Vivienne threw petals and Shiloh and Knox served as ring bearers.

It's the second marriage for Pitt, who you'll remember was previously married to Jennifer Aniston (unless you actually live under a rock), and the third for Jolie, who was previously married to Jonny Lee Miller (1996 to 1999) and Billy Bob Thornton (2000 to 2003).

Brad was papped this morning at a photocall for his upcoming film 'Fury' during which he conspicuously his hands except for a few moments when photographers were able to snap his hands and saw his new wedding band.
