Angelina Jolie made Brad Pitt happy when she reached out to him about their kids.

Jolie and Pitt’s divorce is still ongoing. Many believed that it would take time due to their $631 million shared properties. It's also been said that they try to be civil when it comes to their kids.

In fact, Jolie reportedly reached out to her ex-husband and asked him to look after their six children as she would be away filming her movie “Those Who Wish Me Dead.” Pitt was reportedly happy with Jolie’s move.

“Angelina is going to be spending a lot of the summer filming ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’, so she reached out to Brad and offered him the chance to look after the children. This is a massive step for them and the children, who have only had limited time with Brad since the break-up,” a source told The Sun.

“It feels like a really positive move all round and Brad is over the moon. He’s invited his parents, Jane and William, to stay with them at his mansion in LA so they can have some proper family time together.”

There were rumors that Pitt and Jolie had an affair while filming “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. However, according to some sources, there was already trouble in paradise for Aniston and Pitt before Jolie came into the picture. And they would still split even without the “Maleficent” star.

In a previous interview, when Pitt was already with Jolie, he said that when he was still married to Aniston he was living a not-so-interesting life. He turned down a lot of opportunities looking for an interesting role because he was not living that kind of life.

Many criticized Pitt for his statement because it seemed that he was implying that Aniston was dull. However, the “Ad Astra” actor defended himself and said that it wasn’t what he meant.

“It grieves me that this was interpreted this way,” Pitt said.

"Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly. The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself — and that, I am responsible for.”
