It is a real competition for the hearts of the kids, and Angelina Jolie will not be outdone.
Brad Pitt has upped his game with bouncy houses, games, and other fun-filled activities at his Hollywood mansion.
According to a source who spoke to Hollywood Life, since the divorce process began, Jolie has decided the way to win her children’s hearts is to spend time with them and give them genuine love.
Jolie’s goal is to be a devoted mother who gives her children the best of herself with no gimmicks.
The friend revealed this about the relationship between Jolie and her six children — Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10: “Angelina spends every minute of free time with her kids these days; she has always been an extremely hands-on parent. But since the split with Brad the kids have become pretty much her entire focus, they’re her reason for living, and she is happiest when they are all with her. She’s been going out of her way to take them out more because she likes to keep them busy to keep their minds off the divorce.”
The pal went on to explain: “It has nothing to do with her trying to create a certain image because she is only being the natural, devoted mother that she’s always been.”
Jolie is aware that Pitt was the favorite parent and she is doing all that she can to at least tie with her estranged spouse.
The family friend claimed: “While Brad continues to nurture his relationship with the kids privately, behind closed doors, he is bothered every time Angelina puts the kids on display in public, something Brad is working hard to avoid while the divorce war rages on. He thinks the kids’ privacy is most important during this time and it makes him sad that Angelina does not protect the children the same way.”
Meanwhile, it is being reported that Pitt is eager for the messy process to wrap up: “Brad is hoping his divorce from hell comes to a close asap. Brad feels like throughout this long process Angelina has worked hard at making him look bad while taking out the kids all the time and doing everything in her power to make herself look like a saint and the good guy. As the never-ending divorce inches towards being finalized, with more paperwork being recently filed, Brad is praying for closure. He is hoping that once it is all over, Angelina will no longer have anything to hold over him.”
Fans are hoping for the best in this drama.
