Estranged couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been locked in a divorce battle, including who will get custody of their children, since they ended their marriage in 2016. The celebrity pair is parents to six children Maddox, 16, Pax, 15, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, whom Angelina had with Brad.
Earlier last month, the custody battle heated up after a judge ordered new restrictions for Jolie's involvement in Pitt's interaction with their six children. A judge had established a schedule for the actor to spend time with his kids who live with Jolie as she is shooting Maleficent 2 in London. And ever since the development in their case, Brad has been in the best of moods as he now knows when he can meets his children, reports a Hollywood news platform.
"Having kids was always very special to him. He wanted kids for years before he met Angie. He was dreaming about being a dad. And he has always been a great dad. Very involved and present. He talks about the kids nonstop now. He brought gifts back to England," a source was quoted as saying by the news portal in its report.
The source further added and told the news portal, "Brad has been in the best mood. Although he was away from the kids for a week, it seems just the fact that he now knows when he will see them, makes him very happy. He couldn’t wait to get back to England. Not following a proper custody schedule was very difficult for him. And very sad as well."
The court papers obtained by the same news platform said "the children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them", and that Jolie, 43, could lose full custody of the children if she doesn't allow them to grow their relationships with Pitt. However, Maddox, 16, the oldest son, isn't included in the timetable because he is old enough to decide for himself how much time he wants to spend with his father.
Pitt has been in the UK since last month and even spent Father's Day with his six children. As shooting of his next movie, Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, has begun Pitt will balance his time between London and Los Angeles.
