Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split in 2016 and their divorce proceedings along with the custody battle of their six children – Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 9, continues on.

However, there is a silver lining and hope for Brad, who will be meeting his children for the second time in recent weeks, according to People magazine. Angelina is currently residing in London with her kids as she shoots for Maleficent 2. Hence, Brad is in London as well in order to spend time with his children.

A source informed the magazine, “Having kids was always very special to him. He wanted kids for years before he met Angie. He was dreaming about being a dad. And he has always been a great dad. Very involved and present. He talks about the kids nonstop now. He brought gifts back to England.”

“Brad has been in the best mood. Although he was away from the kids for a week, it seems just the fact that he now knows when he will see them, makes him very happy. He couldn’t wait to get back to England. Not following a proper custody schedule was very difficult for him. And very sad as well,” the source added.

Earlier, according to leaked court papers from the custody battle, Brad is allowed to meet his children without Angelina’s permission as it was stated that, “the children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them.”

If Angelina did not agree to the stipulation then the actress could lose full custody of their children.
