Angelina Jolie's actor father Jon Voight is "happy" for his daughter and her new husband Brad Pitt after learning of the couple's top secret nuptials in France. The Tomb Raider star wed the Hollywood actor in Correns, France on Saturday (23Aug14), and their wedding was a very private affair, attended by close friends, family members and couple's six children. However, Jolie's father Voight was not among the small group of guests, and it appears he knew nothing of the ceremony as he prepared for Monday's Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, where he was nominated for his role in Ray Donovan. After news of the nuptials broke on Thursday (28Aug14), Voight released a statement wishing his daughter and her new husband all the best. He says, "It sounds like it was a wonderful wedding. It must have been very beautiful with the kids participating... They were able to do it very quietly. I'm very happy for them." The nondenominational civil ceremony was officiated by a Californian judge, who gave Jolie and Pitt their marriage licence in the U.S. before flying out to France to oversee the nuptials.
