By now you’ve probably heard the devastating news that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are getting a divorce. Our hearts are breaking for their six kids and the love they once shared.

We remember when Jolie and Pitt first fell in love  on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith — and it feels like it all happened yesterday. When in reality, it was 12 years ago.

In the January 2006 issue of Vogue, Jolie described what it was like working with Pitt and subsequently falling deeply in love.

So they both kept on living their lives and enjoying working together every day.

That is until they realized that they had developed feelings for each other that were way more than just friendship feelings.

But they didn’t act on their feelings right away. They remained “very, very good friends” until after Pitt and Jennifer Aniston separated in January 2005.

Jolie said that the time they spent getting to know each other wasn’t as exciting as people might think.

It was Jolie’s 5-year-old son Maddox who really helped make their relationship happen. Maddox took it upon himself to call Pitt “dad”.

RIP Brangelina.
