Angelina Jolie reportedly purchased the heart-shaped Petra Island for her longtime partner Brad Pitt for his upcoming 50th birthday.

Jolie dropped roughly $20 million on the island, which comes with two properties designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, reported The Mirror. The modern architect is known to be one of Pitt’s favorites, which serves to explain the lavish birthday purchase for the World War Z actor.

“When I discovered Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright, it changed my life,” Pitt is quoted as saying. Jolie brought him on a tour of Fallingwater back in 2006, where Pitt proved to the curator of the late architect’s home that he was very knowledgeable about architecture in general.

“As soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed,” a source told the Mirror. “The house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat. It’s very private. And Angelina knows the fact the island is in the shape of a heart will mean so much to him.”

Petra Island measures at 11 acres and sits 50 miles north off the coast of New York City. The main home, which was designed from Wright’s plans in 2008, features four rooms and 2.5 baths and has its own FAA approved helipad. A cottage also rests on the property, and had been built in 1950 before Wright’s death.
