Brad and Angelina: Wedding for the Kids!

At long last, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have decided to tie the knot. The reason? Because it would mean the world to their kids!

The children, a source says, have been wanting a wedding since they've been old enough to understand that their parents are not officially husband and wife. "First it was Maddox, who has begged his parents to tie the knot for years," the insider says. "Lately, Shiloh and Zahara have been chiming in, and Pax thinks it would just be the coolest thing ever to be a ring bearer."
