Brad Pitt has opened up about family life with Angelina Jolie
In his most recent interview, Brad opens up about being a father to his six children – Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, six, Shiloh, eight, and twins Knox and Vivienne, six – explaining that becoming a dad has made him ‘feel like the richest man alive’.
He said: ‘You learn to value the basic beauty of family, of watching your children grow and evolve. It’s the most beautiful thing you can experience.
‘Being a father has changed me on so many levels and made me more generous and alive. I see my children as an essential part of my life, and it means so much to be able to educate them and help them make their way in the world as they grow up. I love being a father and all the responsibilities that entails.’
Although we’re super happy for newly-weds Brangelina, we can’t help but cast a sideways glance at ex, Jennifer Aniston.
The 45-year-old actress, who was married to Brad Pitt from 2000-2005, has been engaged to actor Justin Theroux for over two years now – though there are still no signs of wedding bells.
‘We have yet to set any dates,’ said Jennifer. ‘There have been no cancelled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings, there have been no arguments about where to get married.’
Equally, Jen has never taken on motherhood, despite saying in a 2005 interview: ‘I’ve always wanted to have children, and I would never again give up that experience for a career.’
However, Jen defended her decision not to have children yet in a recent interview.
She explained: ‘It is such an issue of, like, “Are you married yet? Are you going to have your babies yet?” I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and if they’re not checked, then I’ve failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman because I haven’t birthed a child.
‘I’ve birthed a lot of things, and I feel like I’ve mothered many things. And I don’t feel like it’s fair to put that pressure on people.’
But despite her insistence, Jen is rumoured to be undergoing IVF treatment with fiancé Justin, after reported fertility problems.
Whatever’s going on Jen, we hope you’re happy in life – whether the ex ‘feels like the richest man alive’ or not.
