Family and friends gather at French home

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are expected to become husband and wife this weekend.

Brad recently presented fiancée Ange with a wedding gift of a £250,000 watch and now the couple’s family have been gathering at their home in the south of France.

Officially, Brad, 48, and Ange, 37, are hosting a party for Brad’s parents’ 50th wedding anniversary, but locals suspect the Hollywood stars will secretly tie the knot.

Brad flew in to oversee preparations but they’re all here now,’ reveals a source.

‘They say it’s for Jane and Bill, but some think this could be it.

‘Even Angelina‘s private jeweller is here.’

Close friends have been arriving at the chateau, and Brad’s actor buddy George Clooney is rumoured to be flying in.

George and Brad are best pals, there’s no way he’d miss it,’ the source tells The Sun.

‘He’s at his house in Italy, but could fly to Marseille in an hour. There’s a real buzz around the estate.’
