Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are engaged

Did you read that correctly? Jennifer Aniston is engaged. She’s going to have another husband who is not Brad Pitt, which means everyone can finally stop making Brangelina jokes at her expense even though they clearly should have stopped doing that six years ago. THIS IS BIG, YOU GUYS.

People’s got the exclusive, confirming the engagement via Theroux’s rep, who said, “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”

Aniston and Theroux — the actor and screenwriter who also happens to be a Washington, D.C. native — started dating last May and have been the picture of Hollywood happiness (see above).

Naturally, this story will be milked for weeks/months/years/centuries to come, so this is only the beginning.

So I’ll close (for now) by noting this teeny piece of irony: a weekend that started with reports (since debunked) about the wedding of Pitt and Angelina Jolie is ending with the news that Aniston is about to become a bride again.

Aw, go ahead. Start the usual Aniston vs. Angelina comment stream, just this one last time, for nostalgia’s sake.
