Brad Pitt called ex-wife Jennifer Aniston to congratulate her on her engagement to Justin Theroux.

A source told The Mirror, "Brad gave Jen a quick call to say how pleased he was to hear that she was getting married."

With the pair on good terms the source continued to say, "He jokingly asked if he should ‘save the date’, and they both laughed, but told her in all seriousness that he was really happy for her and Justin."

With the couple only newly engaged, the guestlist has not been started yet. Brad's mum might be getting an invite though, "Jen does still chat to his mum, Jane, so there are rumours in Hollywood that she will make an appearance at the wedding."

Theroux popped the question last Friday on his 41st birthday.
