Angelina Jolie’s son, Maddox, was instrumental in speeding up her relationship with Brad Pitt.
During her interview with Vogue, Jolie shared Maddox’s surprising and touching comment about Brad Pitt when he was still very young.
Brad Pitt’s estranged son played a role in his relationship with Angelina Jolie
According to Mirror UK, this comment fast-tracked Jolie and Pitt’s relationship because it encouraged them to start a family. However, it also, reportedly, left Jennifer Aniston feeling devastated.
“It had never crossed my mind that Mad was going to need a father – certainly not that it would be this man I just met. Until, of course, I got to know Brad and realized that he is naturally just a wonderful father. And we left a lot of it up to Mad, and he took his time and then made the decision one day,” Jolie said.
Maddox Jolie-Pitt called Brad Pitt ‘dad’
The Maleficent: Mistress of Evil star revealed that Maddox just called Pitt “dad” one day.
“It was amazing. We were playing with cars on the floor of a hotel room, and we both heard it and didn’t say anything and just looked at each other. And then we kind of let it go on, and then he just continued to do it and that was it. So that was probably the most defining moment when he decided that we would all be a family,” she said.
Brad Pitt also gushed over being a father of six during his interview with Rolling Stone. He said that Mr. & Mrs. Smith was his favorite movie.
“Because you know… six kids. Because I fell in love,” he gushed.
“Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love,” Jolie chimed in.
However, these comments didn’t, reportedly, sit well with Aniston. The Friends star, reportedly, called Jolie’s comments “uncool.”
Brangelina custody battle continues
Over a decade has passed, and Pitt and Aniston are still friends. However, the actor is still fighting for custody of his six children against Jolie.
Jolie and Pitt have been making headlines after the former requested Judge John W. Ouderkirk to be removed from their case.
Following the back and forth between the exes’ lawyers, it was revealed that Pitt still doesn’t have a relationship with Maddox. Pax and Zahara have also chosen not to communicate with their dad.
A source told Us Weekly that the three eldest children of Jolie and Brad Pitt are also acutely aware of their parents’ messy divorce.
