Guthrie said, "We knew that she had worked with a jeweler before on a collection. And he confirmed it. And then Brad's manager confirmed it. So, there we are."

Pitt worked on the tablet-cut ring with jeweler Robert Procop for more than a year, Guthrie said.

Pitt gave a hint about engagement plans to Lee Cowan in January when he sat down for an interview on "CBS Sunday Morning." Pitt said, "We're getting a lot of pressure from the kids. It means something to them. ... They have questions when their friends' parents are married and (ask) 'Why is that?'"

When asked what Pitt tells his kids, the celebrity replied, "'We will someday. We will. That's a great idea.' (My kids say,) 'Get Mommy a ring,' (I say), 'OK, I will. I will'"
