Brad Pitt is ready to fight for the affection of his children, wanting to especially sway the oldest “mother’s boys.” What better way to get your kids to love you as a parent than to do what dads do best – build them a “house of fun!”
The Hollywood actor is upgrading one of his multi-million dollar homes just to make his kids happy.
The actor reportedly moved back into the Los Feliz home he used to share with Angelina Jolie before their split. Pitt decided on remodeling the residence just to “win back” their children’s affections, claimed a source close to the family.
The actor had a huge trampoline built in the back yard. “Brad wants to make a house of fun, the trampolines are just the start of it,” shared the insider.
“He’s also ripping down the house at the back to make it into a children’s playground. They’ve been wondering what to do with it for years, he bought it 18 years ago, and it’s not been touched since. Makes sense to have this as the kids’ hideaway.”
Pitt wishes that the children can feel right at home there once again. “He wants to create a children’s paradise,” the source stated.
The star has been living with friends ever since he and Jolie broke up but now, the actor has decided that it’s about time he returns to the house that used to be his long before he and Angelina became an item.
While the six children were living with their mother and Pitt was granted just short visits, he spent his free time away from them to rebuilt one of the houses on the propriety and transform it into a play den.
“He has extended the skate park so now it goes around half the house — the west and south parts,” revealed the source.
Although the actor was only allowed one visit per week, according to the source it was “only a matter of time,” before the visits were increased.
Pitt’s cars were parked in the driveway and eyewitnesses claim Pitt is back at the house.
It looks like the actor has long-term plans to regain normalcy with his children.
“Brad’s jumped through all the hoops now, he’s gone for child therapy, he’s been cleared by the authorities and the lowest statutory rights he has as a father would be overnight stays with the children. Although this would be at their discretion, which is a big if, as if they don’t want it, under California custody laws, then they don’t have to stay with any parent they don’t want to.”
Pitt’s efforts are all for his kids.
“Maddox and Pax are the ones who hold the biggest grudge to Brad, as they are definitely mother’s boys. But what kid wouldn’t be swung by their own private den, trampolines and Hollywood’s best skate park?”
