Brad Pitt Reveals That Fatherhood ‘Changed Him Completely’

Brad Pitt is one of the wealthiest and most successful actors in Hollywood, but it’s his family that makes him feel like ‘the richest man alive’.

The Fury actor, who recently tied the knot with long-term partner Angelina Jolie last month, told Psychologies magazine that becoming a father ‘changed him completely’.
 
The star spoke about the love he feels for his family and said that becoming a father to Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and twins Knox and Vivienne, six, has made him feel ‘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,' he said.

He may be a Hollywood star, but that doesn’t stop Brad worrying all the time, just like all parents.

'I worry about them all the time. That's the emotional bond and responsibility that sweeps over you when you have a family to look after.

'I care about them more than I care about myself, which I think is the real definition of love. You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family,' he added.
