Angelina Jolie: Brad & I Are "Really Hands-On" Parents

With six kids aged 10 and under, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie definitely have their hands full – and they wouldn’t have it any other way. The Kung Fu Panda star recently chatted to The Telegraph about her career, her kids – and what makes her handsome beau “a real man.”

Though both Brad and Angie of course have very busy and successful careers, the stunning star says that their priority is spending time together as a family.

“When Brad and I decided to have a large family we decided we’d only do it if we could be really hands-on and take the kids with us, seeing them every day,” she reveals. “I am always there on weekends, I only ever work a five-day week, and I am often there for breakfast or dinner. When I’m working they come up at lunch…. It’s a special time for Daddy when Mom works for a few months. And Brad is such a great dad. When I’m working he’s putting in the extra dad time, and that’s special for their relationship, too.”

Angelina is quick to gush about Brad, who she’s been with for 6 years, outside of the realm of fatherhood, too.

“I am very lucky with Brad. He is a real gentleman, but he is also a real man’s man. He’s got the wonderful balance of being an extraordinary, great, loving father, a very, very intelligent man and physically he’s a real man,” she adds, blushing, “In all things that it means.”

Brad has been busy giving interviews of his own for his new film Tree of Life – last week he hinted that marriage may be in the cards for him and Angie after all. The pair are currently restoring their $35 million, 35-bedroom Château Miraval in the south of France, prompting speculation they may be planning a summer wedding there.

Angelina, though, remains mum on the subject, saying only, “We are obviously extremely committed to the children and as parents together.”

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
