Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly decided to tie the knot amid claims that the couple are set to add twins to their rainbow family.

OK! magazine claims that the couple, who are often the target of marriage rumours in Hollywood, are expecting twins and they want to welcome the children as man and wife.
'They had an amazing time Oscar weekend, since then, they've been madly in love. The wedding was totally off: They were having so many arguments, but they've finally managed to bury their differences,' the magazine said quoting a source.
'Angie is expecting twins this fall, so it is making them feel a time crunch. They decided they'd both like to welcome their twin boys to the world as man and wife, which means the wedding has to happen fairly soon. They've both realised how much they want to be together,' the source added.
Jolie, 36, and Pitt, 48, already have three adopted and three biological children -- Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
