Christmas is going to be great for Brad Pitt and his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, and their children because they have finally reached a custody agreement.
While everything about the Pitt/Jolie clan leaks online, this time around, they have been able to keep the deal under wraps. The actress and Pitt signed the documents ending their legal fights several weeks ago.
Samantha Bley DeJean told ET: “A custody arrangement was agreed two weeks ago and has been signed by both parties and the judge. The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial. The filing and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children.”
According to Hollywood Life, Pitt is eager to spend his birthday and Christmas with his children now that the war is over.
The family friend had this to share: “The holidays are fast approaching and Brad is overall very excited about them coming because it is all about family and he is intending to make it completely drama free and fun. He wants to make sure he gets a lot of time with all his kids because they are growing up so fast and he wants to enjoy all the experiences he can have with them. It doesn’t have to be a big trip or be somewhere glitzy. He just wants to spend some personal time with them all and ring in the new year with good vibes all around.”
Another source went on to say that Jolie has been stepping up her game as a mother to keep her children.
The family friend stated: “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 added: “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. 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.”
Fans are happy that peace is on the horizon for the two Hollywood superstars.
