Whether it is the girl next door or the world's most beautiful or powerful woman, the overwhelming feeling at being proposed for marriage and the idea of spending your life with someone you love does not differ a lot for anyone. It is happiness that brings tears to one's eyes.

Power couple Brangelina, who recently got engaged, certainly feel the same way.

A source told US weekly that Jolie cried and smiled when her partner of seven years proposed to her.

Everyone in the family was overjoyed at that moment. Everyone hugged once she put [the ring] on. She went around and showed it to each of the kids. Angie considers herself bonded to Brad for life, the source added.

Jolie, 36, was first spotted wearing the engagement ring at a private viewing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on April 11, and two days later, their jeweler Robert Procop confirmed the news that they were engaged.

The couple loves travelling and the world knows that. So how else would they celebrate their big event but head off to an exotic location?

The website reported exclusively that the couple has gone to the Galápagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador to celebrate their engagement.

The couple touched down in Guayaquil, Ecuador Tuesday with the family in tow, to visit the Galapagos Islands.

The mayor of the town of Santa Cruz, Leopoldo Buchelli, confirmed the star couple's arrival but would not release any details of the family's scheduled trip, the report said.

We were informed that they arrived at the airport in Baltra yesterday, then they made their way over to a villa in the Galápagos Islands, a source in the mayor's office of Santa Cruz told People magazine.

The destination was the Royal Palm Hotel and they arrived on a jet, said Mail Online.

Pitt reportedly took an year to design the engagement ring for one of the most beautiful women in the world and gathered all their six children before presenting it to her.

The couple started dating in 2005 when they met on the sets of Mr. and Mrs. Smith and have been together ever since. They have six children together, including three adopted ones. No date or location for the wedding has been revealed yet.
