Last week, at the Claremont Hotel Club & Spa in Oakland, Calif. – where daddy Brad Pitt is filming Moneyball – Angie’s sons Pax, 6, and Maddox, 9, got into a brotherly spat over some ketchup after their nanny ordered burgers and fries for the boys and two friends.
“At one point, Maddox and Pax got into a brotherly spat over some ketchup,” says the witness, nothing that a bodyguard was also present at the meal. “The nanny firmly said, ‘Mad, let Paxie have some ketchup.’ Maddox said, ‘Mom, do I have to?’ and Pax was whining, ‘Mom, make him give me some.’”
According to the witness the boys continued to call their nanny “mom”, something which didn’t seem so surprising to a friend of the Jolie-Pitt family:
Angelina is gone so much working or in meetings that the kids do spend most of their time during the day with the nannies. Publicly, Angelina would not like the hired help to be seen, but they are there and all of the kids are so attached to them, they are like family – whether Angelina wants to believe that or not.
Recently it was also reported that the couple’s youngest children – 2-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – didn’t recognize their father after his trip to the salon in preparation for his latest flick.
“Brad kissed and hugged them when he left for the hairstylist, but when he came home three hours later with his hair cut, the grey dyed out and his face totally smooth, Knox and Vivienne ran away from him screaming,” recalls one source. “They ran up to Angelina, saying, ‘Where’s daddy? Who’s that man?’”
“Knox and Vivienne were so young when Brad started growing his beard that they didn’t know him any other way.
Angie and Brad, who have been together since 2005, are also parents to 4-year-old Shiloh and 5-year-old Zahara.
