What Brad Pitt has to say about marriage and family is melting us into puddles
Brangelina (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, obvs) have been fan favorites for years — probably largely due to the way they seem so genuinely in love with each other. And also for their philanthropy and humanitarian work. Angelina Jolie especially has set up many charities, has gone overseas to help those who are in need, and was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador. Together, the Jolie-Pitt foundation has raised over 17 million. Recently, Brad Pitt opened up to Telegraph, shedding even more light on his relationship with Jolie. He also discusses his home life, his new movie with Jolie (By the Sea, out now), and his marriage to her as well. And, well, we’re swooning.
The length of their relationship is monstrous in comparison to the short relationships Hollywood is known for. And Pitt can’t help but marvel at it as well!
“[…]I’m surprised how much our history – Angie’s and mine – means to me. That we have this story together. That we know each other. That we watch each other getting older, through amazing moments, joys, pains. I don’t know. I’m just surprised, because you hear people talking about the old ball and chain, and people trying to recapture youth, as if that’s the impulse – but it’s not the impulse, it’s not the impulse at all.”
But it wasn’t just his marriage to Jolie that Pitt gushed about. Most notable was the way that he talked about his kids.
“Everyone talks about the joy of having kids – blah, blah, blah. But I never knew how much I could love something until I looked in the faces of my children.” Pitt and Jolie have six children together, three adopted, Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, and Zahara, 10, and three biological Shiloh, nine, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 7.
Jolie also recently discussed with The Guardian the happiness that comes from the family life she and Pitt have created. “They’re my favourite friends! They’ve become my best friends. We love sitting up and talking about life.”
Okay, they’re way too cute. Thanks for giving us ALL the #relationshipgoals, Brangelina!
