Angelina Jolie Reveals What Brad Pitt Is REALLY Like As A Dad

Section: Celebrity Mums

If you’re a fan of Brad Pitt, new revelations about his parenting skills may take your appreciation of him to a whole new level…

Even though they’re one of the most famous couples in the world, it’s not often that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt open up about their home life – which includes their brood of half a dozen kids.

But, to our delight, Angelina has spoken up about what her fiancé is like as a dad and how they cope with juggling life with their large family. 

'It’s very reassuring to know there is this very solid and generous man in your life.’

‘Brad is always encouraging me and willing to assume a lot of the parental duties,’ Angelina revealed to The Mirror. ‘He loves being a father and that’s one thing I’m most proud of about him. With a large family, you need that support. Brad is a wonderful teacher and guide, for the boys in particular.’

If you’re wondering how Brad juggles raising six children with filming around the world, the answer is excessive organisation.

‘He likes to plan things and proceed in a very deliberate and methodical way,’ explains Angelina. ‘He is much cooler and calmer… I can be more impulsive and outspoken. It’s very reassuring to know there is this very solid and generous man in your life.’

We can’t pretend we’re not a little bit envious of Ange’s seemingly perfect family life…

The couple, who met a decade ago on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith, are parents to Maddox, 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, seven, and twins Vivienne and Knox, five. Brad and Ange are set to be wed, but haven’t yet disclosed a date for their nuptials.

Brad isn’t the only famous doting dad we’ve noticed. Check out how these other celebrity dads take to fatherhood.
