Angelina Jolie announced in a New York Times editorial today that she underwent a covert double mastectomy, earning shock and awe from the celebrity world.

Though he wasn’t shocked, her life partner (and likely future husband) Brad Pitt was arguably the most awed by her strength, and he said so himself.

Jolie revealed she had a “faulty” gene which upped her risk of breast cancer to 87 percent — something that terrified her after seeing her beloved mother, Marcheline Bertrand, succumb to a 10-year ovarian cancer battle of her own. However, Jolie’s surgeries have cut her risk down to 5 percent.

Pitt was by Jolie’s side every day for the duration of her three-month series of preventative procedures, for which she warmly thanked him in her heartfelt piece.

“Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie’s choice, as well as so many others like her, absolutely heroic,” Pitt, with whom Jolie shares six children, gushed to the London Evening Standard. “I thank our medical team for their care and focus.”

The ‘World War Z’ actor continued, “All I want for is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children. This is a happy day for our family.”

Let’s be real: Angelina Jolie is a superhero. It’s a happy day for the world.
