Stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are facing another round of secret wedding rumors after Jolie was spotted with a new ring on her wedding finger during a trip to Bondi Beach Australia on Sunday.
E! News reported
that Jolie was spotted wearing the ring while shopping with her children during the Australian excursion. She has been wearing another gold band on her left finger since March.

When asked in March if the gold band was a wedding ring, Jolie responded, "No, it's not.")
TMZ reported at the time that Jolie
"swapped out her $500,000 diamond engagement ring for a simple gold band during a recent humanitarian trip to the Congo," which sparked the initial speculation that the Jolie and Pitt were secretly married.
"We get a lot of pressure from the kids," Pitt, who starred in the summer flick "World War Z," told E! News in November 2012. "We didn't realize how much it meant to them."
Jolie, daughter of Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight, won an Oscar for her supporting role in "Girl Interrupted" in 2000. She was nominated for best actress in the moving "Changeling" in 2009.
Pitt has been nominated for an Oscar four times – best actor and movie of the year for "Moneyball" in 2012, best actor in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons" in 2009, and best supporting actor in "Twelve Monkeys" in 1995.
The Jolie-Pitt relationship, called "Brangelina" by the Hollywood press, has been going strong for years, even in the face of hardships like Jolie's cancer scare in May. Jolie underwent a preventative double mastectomy after tests revealed
she was at high risk for developing breast and ovarian cancer.
ABC News reported that since her public announcement, there has been a nationwide increase in genetic testing for women, which the National Society of Genetic Counselors are calling the "Angelina Jolie effect."
"I really think of it as the Angelina gift, it is really kicking up the whole conversation," Dr. Marisa Weiss, director of breast health outreach at Lankenau Medical Center and president of Breastcancer.org, told ABC News.
