When Brad Pitt hit the red carpet on Monday for the New York premiere of his latest flick "Killing Them Softly," talk naturally turned to when he would make his marriage-minded brood of six happy by tying the knot with Angelina Jolie.

the megastar, 48, stayed vague on the nuptial details but teased to People, "The time is nigh. It's soon. I got a good feeling about it."

Those good feelings are apparently emanating from the general direction of children Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

"We've had a family. We've raised the kids," adds Brad of his seven-year romance with Angelina, 37. "I am surprised how much [marriage] meant to me once you had that."

"I will admit, we have had some pressure from our kids," Pitt notes to "Extra." "We didn't realize how much it means to them. We didn't realize how much it means to us."
