However, it was Jolie who broke the news to Mike.
“Jolie was FaceTiming with him and she was like, ‘Guess what, Dad? Mom’s engaged!'” the singer recalled. “And he’s like, ‘Oh, that’s nice.’ I wish I had told her, but I’m also like, I don’t want Jolie to have to keep secrets from her dad.”
Her ex then congratulated her and they talked about co-parenting.
“Once we resolved that conversation, he was like, ‘Hey, I’m really happy for you,'” she said. “He’s like, ‘Allan is a great guy.’ And I’m just like, ‘Thank you.’ And I actually started crying because he said, ‘Of all people, you deserve to have someone who loves you and respects you and you deserve that.’ He’s like, ‘After everything I’ve put you through, you deserve this more than anyone.’ And it meant so much to me that he said that.”
