Ten years ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt made their official public debut as a couple with one photograph. After months of speculation, a picture of the twosome enjoying an intimate beach vacation with Angelina’s son, Maddox, finally surfaced, confirming their romance once and for all.
"It was clear that Brad and Maddox have a close relationship — they were joking around together,” a source revealed at the time. “When Brad would talk to him, his face would light up and he'd giggle."
Hollywood’s royal couple had met just a few months prior to that moment, on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004, when neither was looking for love. Angelina explained: “We were both living very full lives.... I think we were the last two people who were looking for a relationship. I certainly wasn’t.”
Of course, the attractive A-listers fell in love all the same – and the rest, as they say, is history.
Fast-forward to a decade later, and Brad and Angelina are still going strong. Along with their eldest son, 14-year-old Maddox, the couple adopted two more children (Pax, 12, and Zahara, 10) and have three biological kids – Shiloh, 9, and six-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne.
As their family grew, getting married became increasingly important to the pair, and they were eventually wed on August 23, 2014. It was a simple and intimate ceremony that was attended by their kids.
"It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter. It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family," the newlyweds told Hello!.
Although they’re not regularly photographed mid-kiss, Brad and Angelina previously told Hello! that they believe showing affection in front of their children can help set a positive influence – as long as it's not over the top, of course.
Here, we look back at some of Brad and Angelina’s most intimate moments caught on camera over the past decade.
