He’s stunned his parents by begging them to get married.

Now it seems the couple are considering nuptials next year after Maddox made his heartfelt plea to Brad during their guys’ trip to NYC last week with Pax, six.

‘Before the boys left, Maddox found Angie in tears in his parents’ bedroom,’ says a close family friend.

‘He asked what was wrong and she said she’d miss them.

Madd hugged her and when they got to New York, told Brad: “Mommy gets so sad when you’re not there, Daddy, and if you were married she’d know you’ll come back.”

Brad was shocked: he’d always promised he’d marry Angie if the kids needed that security.’

Brad, 47, proposed to Ange, 35, in 2005 when she was pregnant with Shiloh. Back then she said no but now she thinks the time is right.
