Brad Pitt is much better than he was the previous fall. Since Angelina Jolie, petitioned for divorce from him in September, the actor has cleaned up his life — and in the process, strengthened his relationship with their six kids: Maddox; Pax; Zahara; Shiloh; and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. Brad’s even supposedly been going to treatment with the kids, and keeping in mind that he’s resolved to make THEIR relationship entire once more, he’s unyielding about not having any desire to revive his adoration with Angie. And he’s apparently making that crystal clear to the kids upfront! After all, the last thing he wants is to give them the wrong impression.
“The kids don’t love therapy, but they know that Brad has to do it,” an OK! magazine insider reportedly told the publication. “He’s made some tearful confessions, which have allowed them to get a better sense of his issues and come to terms with what went wrong in their parents’ marriage. Brad has firmly but gently explained that no matter how much he loves their mother, they are not getting back together. He doesn’t want them to have any false hopes.” We’re absolute with Brad on this one, and believe he’s settling on a super intelligent, responsible parenting choice. At the time, it might be difficult to break the news to the children, yet over the long run, it’ll save a lot of tears and confusion.
“He’s had time to own up to the mistakes he made, especially the drinking, that led to everything falling apart, and that’s brought him and the kids much closer together,” the source continued. “He’s told them that he missed them desperately every minute they were apart. Now, everyone is in a much better place.” truth be told since Brad was conceded unsupervised visits with the children back in February, the proud father hasn’t wasted any time pulling out the stops to ensure they have fun together.
“They’ve gone to the zoo, had movie nights at home, and he even cooks for them,” the insider dished. “Brad’s much more attentive these days — and more fun to be around.” Even better, Angie and the kids purportedly moved into a wonderful house only two miles far from Brad’s home, which implies he would see be able to his children much MORE. “it’s a sign of [Angie’s] commitment to co-parenting, even as she and Brad are still hashing out their custody agreement,” the source added. “Brad has been faithfully attending AA meetings and is committed to getting healthy for the children’s sake. He’s already come such a long way.”
