Brad Pitt Opens Up About Family Life with Angelina Jolie Pitt: We ‘Were Aiming for a Dozen’ Kids.

Brad Pitt has opened up about his “chaotic” life with Angelina Jolie and their six children, revealing in a new interview that he and his wife were “aiming for a dozen” kids. The Hollywood power couple, who met on the set of the 2004 film Mr & Mrs Smith, are parents to Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, nine, and twins Knox and Vivienne, seven.

But so much fun.” In fact, Pitt admitted that having a big family has always been a dream of his, and that if it were up to him, he and Jolie Pitt would have even more kids together. The 51-year-old actor was raised as a strict Baptist by his parents but has now turned his back on religion completely. “My upbringing had all the Christian guilt about what you can and cannot, should and shouldn’t do,” he said. Brad told British newspaper The Daily Telegraph in an interview published on Saturday that while their big brood is chaos, he wouldn’t change it one bit. “Everyone talks about the joy of having kids – blah, blah, blah.

But I never knew how much I could love something until I looked in the faces of my children,” says the doting father. “Listen, Angie and I were aiming for a dozen, but we crapped out after six.” He described the Jolie-Pitt household as “a lot of love, a lot of fighting, a lot of refereeing; a lot of teeth-brushing and spilling… Chaos, total chaos. They have memories of being in Vietnam, or that time in Paris, or over in Calgary,” he says. “The downside is friends, sleepovers, team sports – these have been the challenges that we’ve had to work out. They need you to sit down with them, be there for them when they wake up in the middle of the night.” Pitt said his father was very strict and could have been a bit gentle, but he himself is a disciplinarian when it comes to his sons. “I am (a disciplinarian) with the boys.

And very clear that if I’m going to be doing something that’s going to take me away from my family, it better be something that I believe in, and that they’re going to see and be proud of their dad.” I feel like my job is to show them around, help them find what they want to do with their life, put as many things in front of them, and pull them back when they get out of line, so they know who they are,” Pitt said. And then when we set up in one place for any length of time I get on the team sports, because I really want them to have that understanding of being on the team.” The By The Sea star reveals his upbringing was “never that raucous”, and even admits that his father’s tough stance on religion made Brad turn atheist later in life.
