A few times each week, Brad Pitt waits patiently in his Hollywood Hills home for an SUV to deliver some precious cargo – his six children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox. Sometimes they all come, sometimes it’s just a few of them, but no matter who shows up, he is ready for some quality time.
According to US Weekly, Pitt prefers to keep things quiet and doesn’t go out much with the kids. Instead, he prefers to spend the time at his house.
“Brad tries to maintain a safe environment for the children, so that when they visit they stay home,” the source says. “When the children are visiting, they are usually accompanied by bodyguards and nannies. The house is basically on lockdown. He wants his time with his children to be private.”
Per CBS8, his time with the children is important and means everything to him.
Following his split from Angelina Jolie in September 2016, Pitt quit drinking and turned to a quiet life at home, which is where he finds peace. An inside source claims that he has projects around the house and always has things to work on or change around.
The Ad Astra star has also committed to therapy each week and is mostly interested in becoming a better man and father.
Pitt and Jolie are still quietly hammering out a custody agreement, but for the 54-year-old, the current situation of seeing his kids a few times a week isn’t enough. He would like to spend more time with them.
Hollywood Life is reporting that Pitt and Jolie’s different parenting styles are causing major friction between the former couple, and it was one of the contributing factors in their split.
The source claims that while Jolie wants to be their friend and take them to red carpet events and award shows, Pitt would rather instill the wholesome, Midwest values he grew up with.
Allegedly, Pitt fumes every time he sees another photo of his kids out with Jolie (like this past weekend when she brought Pax as her date to the Golden Globes), and he doubles his efforts to provide his kids with a quiet, normal life.

But Pitt and Jolie remain amicable for the sake of the children and are keeping things civil, with their children’s well-being continuing to be priority number one.
When he’s not on dad duty, Pitt spends time enjoying two of his favorite hobbies, art, and music, by visiting galleries and attending a lot of concerts.
Brad Pitt has also reconnected with old friends like Fight Club director David Fincher and his long-time makeup artist Jean Black.
