Brad Pitt 'writes Jolie heartfelt letter'

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt reportedly penned his fiancée Angelina Jolie a five- page letter saying he wants to marry her "as soon as possible" while she was undergoing surgery.

Last week Angelina revealed that she underwent preventative surgery after discovering she carried the BRCA1 gene which increases her risk of cancer. The star chose to embark on the three-month procedure after doctors predicted she had an 87 per cent risk of breast cancer and a 50 per cent risk of ovarian cancer. Brad stayed by Angelina's bedside throughout her operations and decided to pour his emotions into a heartfelt letter.

"The whole experience hit him a lot harder than he expected. He found it really hard seeing her in pain and was wracked with worry throughout the operation," a source told British magazine Grazia.

"While she was sleeping, he stayed up all night writing her a letter. One of his biggest points was that he regretted that he had not made an honest woman of her yet. He said that the experience made him feel like he just wanted to marry her as soon as possible."

Brad - who described Angelina's decision as "absolutely heroic" - is believed to have kept a 48-hour vigil by his fiancée's bedside after the initial surgery.

The 37-year-old beauty was apparently too tired to look at the letter when she woke up, so Brad read it aloud for her and ended up in tears.

"The letter was at least five pages long," the source added. "Brad also spoke a lot about how he admired her for being such a strong woman, for her humanitarian work and spoke at length about how she would always look after him whenever he needed her. He promised to do the same for her."

It has been claimed that the experience has made the couple realise they want to marry "sooner rather than later". The Hollywood stars raise six children together and are expected to tie the knot at their home in France this summer.

"Brad, Angelina and their children are flying to the French Riviera soon to put the final touches to what is now being slated as an early July wedding," said the insider. "They've got Robert Procop-designed rings and have a three-tiered chocolate cake on order and flowers including tiger lilies, which were Angie's mom's favourite. It's going to be a day full of love, laughter and focused on the future."
