Brad Pitt and girlfriend Ines de Ramon have taken the next step in their romance after moving in with each other, according to sources.

The couple were rumored to be an item as far back as November 2022, by which time reports suggested they had been dating for “a few months”. In recent times their relationship has been speculated about more concretely in the media, with Brad and Ines said to have celebrated the former’s 60th birthday in Paris.

It now appears there can be no doubting that the pair are ready and willing to commit their lives to one another, with PEOPLE claiming that de Ramon has moved into Pitt’s home.

The last few years have been tricky for Pitt where love is concerned. The actor’s marriage to Angelina Jolie ended in a tumultuous separation, the wounds of which still don’t appear to have fully healed.

Famously dubbed ‘Brangelina’ in the media, the A-listers fell in love on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, embarking on a romance that stole headlines all over the world.

In 2016, however, Jolie filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. She also moved to request sole custody of the pair’s six children, Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne and Knox.

Yet if the past few months are anything to go by, Pitt’s found love again in the form of de Ramon, a jewelry designer who was previously married to actor Paul Wesley, star of The Vampire Diaries.

De Ramon and Wesley divorced in 2022 after three years of marriage, with de Ramon hooking up with Brad Pitt later that year.

According to Radar Online, one source revealed that Pitt had even set his sights on tying the knot with de Ramon, detailing how the actor was “head-over-heels in love with Ines and wants to marry her.”

If that is the plan then the couple seem to have taken a major step, with a source close to de Ramon confirming that they are now cohabiting.

“It’s pretty recent,” the source told PEOPLE, adding that de Ramon still owns her own place as well. “They are going very strong and she is happier than ever.”

This comes after an insider told PEOPLE late last year that Brad had started to introduce Ines as his girlfriend. On Brad’s 60th birthday in December 2023, the actor arranged a four-hour dinner at LA’s Mother Wolf restaurant, inviting de Ramon and over six of their friends to join them.

“He introduces [Ines] as his girlfriend,” said insider told PEOPLE. “It’s great to see him in a good place. Ines makes him very happy.”

Reports about an upcoming marriage between Pitt and the Swiss jewelry professional remain somewhat vague. Brad seems to have some reservations concerning financial matters, if we are to believe Radar Online.

“He isn’t taking any chances this time. Brad is going to insist that Ines sign a rock-solid prenup to protect as much as $650 million in his assets and future holdings,” a source told the website.
