Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have kept fans guessing since getting engaged in April but it looks like the time for wedding bells may finally be near.
"I am getting more pressure from my kids, and it is something I want to do within their lifetime, but I also feel like the time has come," Pitt told Peoplemagazine Monday night at the premiere of his new film, "Killing Them Softly," in New York.
"The time is nigh," he added. "It's soon. I got a good feeling about it."
Pitt, 48, and Jolie, 37, have been together since 2005 and repeatedly denied rumors that they're heading to the altar. The couple's six kids, Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, have been itching to see mom and dad get married.
Pitt admitted to People that marriage does still mean a lot to him. The actor has been married once before to actress Jennifer Aniston
Doctors told Benjamin Pessah's family he might not live after he was shot in the head. But after waking from an almost month-long coma, Pessah said his first words and took his first steps just in time for Thanksgiving.
Pessah, of Burlingame, Calif., was walking home from a Halloween party in San Francisco Oct. 28 with two friends and his girlfriend when a stranger came up and touched his girlfriend inappropriately. Pessah, 21, stepped in to protect her when the man pulled out a gun and shot him in the head.
"It was pretty bizarre and unnecessary," Pessah's older brother, Nick Pessah, told ABCNews.com. "He [the stranger] attempted to shoot the group of four of them. He missed everybody but the last bullet hit my brother in the head."
When doctors first examined Pessah's injuries, they told his family he wasn't going to make it. At one point, doctors said he only had a 25 percent chance of living.
"The Price Is Right" producers owe a former show model $7.7 million in punitive damages for discriminating against her after her pregnancy. Brandi Cochran was a model on the game show for seven years. She sued FremantleMedia North America and "The Price Is Right" productions, claiming pregnancy discrimination and wrongful termination. She said producers rejected her when she tried to return to work in 2010 after maternity leave and a California jury awarded her the punitive damages Wednesday.
The $7.7 million will be added to the $777,000 in actual damages she has already been awarded.
Cochran, 41, was pregnant with twins after years of trying to conceive but, she said, the show's executive producer was not pleased.
"He was mad at me and it was hard to comprehend someone upset that I was having twins," she told ABC affiliate KABC-TV. "And then I would get questions, 'How long are you going to work?' 'Are you going to work if you get really big?'"

Mariah Carey, 42, may be a diva onstage, but she's also a diva at home. Or so says her husband, Nick Cannon.
Anderson Cooper, on his talk show "Anderson Live" Tuesday, asked Nick Cannon, 32, what a typical day was like in the Carey-Cannon household with twins Monroe and Moroccan.
"The kids run the house. We just running and chasing after them," Cannon said. "My wife is being the diva that she is. I'm trying to keep up with them."
Cannon, the host of "America's Got Talent," also said he changes more diapers than his wife does.
"We all do it but for some reason, I get that duty a little bit more," Cannon said. "I'm not scared of it. I go in, I put the gloves on."
Cannon also talked about Carey's feud with fellow "American Idol" judge Nicki Minaj.
Eddie Murphy has been showing off a new leading lady on his arm and she's almost 20 years younger than the actor. Murphy, 51, walked the red carpet with Australian model Paige Butcher, 33, Saturday at his Spike TV tribute event, "Eddie Murphy: One Night Only." The pair held hands and looked affectionate as Murphy did interviews.
In 2005, Murphy split from his wife, Nicole, after 12 years.
Since the split, Murphy has been linked to a list of woman including former Spice Girl Melanie Brown. Brown announced she was pregnant with Murphy's baby and he denied it. After taking a paternity test, the actor acknowledged their daughter, Angel, in 2007.
Murphy married Tracey Edmonds in 2008 in a symbolic wedding that he decided not to make legal.
The actor is currently producing a television show based on the 1984 film, "Beverly Hills Cop," which Murphy starred in.
Moss and Depp began a high profile, four year relationship during the 1990s. Moss said it was one of the first times she felt taken care of.
"There's nobody that's ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said," Moss said. "Like if I said, 'What do I do?,' he'd tell me."
When he left, it was a disaster.
"And that's what I missed when I left," she said. "I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!"
Moss said she had some regrets about posing topless with "Marky" Mark Wahlberg for the 1992 Calvin Klein photo shoot that made her famous. Around age 17, Moss had a nervous breakdown.
"It didn't feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy," she said. "I didn't like it. I couldn't get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die."
"Mark adores and respects Eva," Sanchez's rep said. "It really was about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends."
The "Desperate Housewives" star confirmed her relationship status with the New York Jets' quarterback last month, telling Extra, "We're happy just dating."
Longoria has been keeping herself busy lately with Obama's reelection campaign.

As for Sanchez, 25, he is in the middle of NFL season, most recently taking a 29-26 loss against the New England Patriots. Sanchez fumbled on the last play of the overtime game.
