There’s a reason we have been seeing Angelina Jolie out-and-about with her children quite a bit lately, and that’s because it seems she wants to be completely about them.
“Her focus is 100 percent on her children, and they love it,” a source recently told In Touch. “She’s never been more relaxed and at ease. It’s like she’s a whole new person.” The actress, 43, shares six kids with her ex-husband Brad Pitt — Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10. “Angie knows how blessed she is to be able to show her kids the world,” the insider added. “Her hope is that they grow up to be caring individuals who want to make the world a better place.”
Even the Oscar winner’s dad, Jon Voight, who Angelina was estranged from for quite some time, recently had nothing but positive words when it comes to his daughter being a mother. “Well, she’s a good mom I’ll tell you that,” the 80-year-old exclusively told Closer Weekly. “She is very loving to the kids and very much there with them, always there with them although she has a busy life. She doesn’t miss any opportunity to inquire into their lives and help them every step of the way. So I’m very proud of her.”
Angelina and the World War Z actor, 55, reportedly want their divorce to be free of drama for their kids’ sake, and the pair have apparently been trying to “make a conscious effort to calm things down for the children.” Which also explains why the Girl, Interrupted star has been hanging out with her kids a lot.
“Angelina has also worked tirelessly these past few months to treat the children to days out and special events to make them happy and, some are saying, ease her guilt over what’s been a messy divorce,” a source told Grazia. “She’s been concerned about what they’ve been hearing from their friends about the nasty details of the divorce, which is why she’s insisted they spend more time doing activities to take their minds off of it.”
We’re just glad to hear that both Angelina and Brad seem to be enjoying a lot of time with their kids!
