Deja vu, Brangelina style. Angelina Jolie, unwittingly or not, provoked yet another round of secret wedding rumors Down Under over the weekend. Hanging out at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia with her kids, the actress and Unbroken director, 38, wore what seems to be a new gold band on her wedding finger; the simple ring rests against the Oscar winner's much more elaborate engagement ring, given to her by fiance Brad Pitt in spring of 2012.

Jolie and Pitt, 49, briefly reunited in Hong Kong with all of their six kids — with Pitt returning to continue filming Fury in the UK, and Jolie to prep for Unbroken in Australia. (Pitt was spotted with their youngest, 5-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, at a Legoland store in England.)

Together since 2005, the globe-trotting couple have both been dropping hints that a wedding really, really is coming soon. "The time is nigh," the World War Z actor said back in November 2012. "It's soon. I got a good feeling about it."

As recently as this March, however, Jolie shot down talk that another mysterious gold ring was a wedding ring. "No, it's not," she told reporters in L.A.

Wedding or not, 2013 has already been an extremely emotional, bonding year for one of Hollywood's biggest couples, whose relationship has only deepened after Jolie underwent a preventative mastectomy earlier this year.

"It's been an emotional and beautifully inspiring few months," Pitt told USA Today. "My most proudest thing is our family. This isn't going to get that."
