Although Brad Pitt initially struggled to mend his relationship with his eldest son Maddox following his split from Angelina Jolie, it appears the two recently reunited during a birthday celebration.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in 2016, and since then, the exes have been embroiled in a heated custody battle. However, the events leading up to their break up also affected his relationship with Maddox, who reportedly defended his mother during an argument with Pitt.

Pitt and his son’s tense relationship report took a positive turn last week when they celebrated Shiloh’s 14th birthday. A source told The Sun that Shiloh’s siblings, Maddox, 18, Pax, 16,  Zahara, 15, and 11-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne, attended the gathering at Pitt’s home.

“Shiloh’s birthday really brought them all together, and she had plenty of presents to open on the day,” the insider told the outlet.

“One of Brad’s film editor pals put together a video of messages from her family and friends all over the world, some of whom she hadn’t seen in a while due to the pandemic.”

The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” actor also surprised his daughter with a memorable gift.  “Shiloh is really into photography, and Brad also bought her a vintage Polaroid camera and created a book of all her best photographs from the past few years,” the source explained.

Although the coronavirus pandemic limited the ways Pitt could celebrate his daughter’s birthday, he wanted to make sure she enjoyed her day. “Brad really wanted to make Shiloh’s day special and had been planning it for a while, he can’t believe how grown up she is,” the insider explained.

“He has an expensive pizza oven at his house and made her favorite dish for the party, while also celebrating with a cake.”

Details of Shiloh’s birthday party comes after sources told Entertainment Tonight that the 56-year-old was looking forward to celebrating his daughter’s growth. 

“Brad is so proud of Shiloh and who she has become. He loves that she always stays true to herself and is so good to her brothers and sisters,” the insider said. 

“Brad’s kids are the most important thing to him. He tells his friends he learns so much about life from his own children.”
