We recently posted some photos of actor Jon Voight reuniting with his daughter, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and his grandchildren. And since then, Voight has spoken to RadarOnline.com about what it was like to reunite with his family:

“It was just wonderful to spend time with Angelina and Brad and the children. I’ve been waiting so long to hug my grandchildren and it was amazing, they are the most beautiful, loving kids you could imagine and I’m not just saying that because I’m their grandfather, they really are something special. Angie and I have been in contact on the phone and by e-mail for some time now. We’ve been working towards a full reconciliation for a while. Angie had to feel it was the right time to bring me into the lives of her and the kids and after some work she decided the moment had arrived.”

Voight admits that Jolie is in the driver’s seat when it comes to his exposure to her children, but he’s optimistic. “I hope I get to see them again soon,” Voight says. “I want to spend as much time with them as possible.”

We think that this is wonderful. It’s always good to see estranged family members (especially parents and children) put water under the bridge and move forward.
