It looks like the stress of raising six children is officially getting to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie! The couple has resorted to asking Brad’s parents for help.
Pitt and Jolie, who raise children Maddox (9), Pax (7), Zahara (6), Shiloh (4) and 2-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne together, are reportedly building an apartment on the grounds of their Chateau Miraval estate in France to accommodate Brad’s parents Bill and Jane Pitt, who plan to help raise the couple’s large family.
According to the Sun newspaper, a source said:
“The whole family is going to move there as soon as the renovations are done. At the moment they have six nannies – one for each of the kids – and the plan is to get rid of the helpers and rely on Bill and Jane.
“The annexe they will live in is an old building which used to be used as a dovecote. It’s big enough to have a sitting room, kitchen and a couple of bedrooms. It will make a lovely little cottage for them.”
Brad and Angelina are said to have asked Brad’s mom and dad to move in with them so that their children can have a more stable home life, instead of having to travel around the world for months at a time to keep up with the couple’s hectic work schedules.
Brad, 47, and Angelina, 35, are said to have asked Bill and Jane to move in with them in order to give their children a more stable home life, instead of travelling the world for months at a time to keep up with the couple’s movie-making commitments.
“They don’t want them dragged around the world any longer,” the source added. “Brad is traditional and wants them to put down roots and have friends and go to the same school, rather than constantly moving. They’ll pretty much retire from Hollywood for a while.”
Good for them! But 6 nannies?! Those kids must be a serious handful! It’s a good thing Brad has generous, kid-loving parents!
