According to a new insider report, Angelina Jolie’s dad, Jon Voight, has become more involved in the lives of his grandkids than ever in the last few years! Apparently, the man is a really dotting grandpa to the six children of Jolie and Brad Pitt and he really loves them a lot.
The source tells HollywoodLife that ‘Jon dotes on his grandkids, he’s got pictures of them all over his house and office. Every time they’re in a magazine he buys it and saves it for them, he’s an extremely proud grandfather.’
Fans of Angelina know all too well that her relationship with her dad was not always the best.
However, after Jon made peace with her, he also started being much more present in the lives of his grandkids as well and now, he is reportedly really hands-on!
The same insider went on to dish that he even likes to do some more challenging activities with the young ones, despite his age.
‘Last year they were all doing this elaborate puzzle that was spread out all over the floor in the study and he was right in there helping them with it for hours. He’s stepped up in some incredible ways over the past few years and really been there for Angie and the kids.’
Of course, that is not to say that his relationship with his daughter is perfect but Angelina apparently cares more about having the man in her kids’ lives than about the two of them agreeing on everything at this point in time.
Furthermore, they mentioned that the grandpa has a warm attitude around the six children and is very ‘encouraging,’ giving them a lot of confidence by telling them just ‘how smart and special they are, building them up.’
