Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fly kids' friends over when they're away from home
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie fly their children's friends over to them when they're working away from home.
The couple may have their hands tied up with their busy globe-trotting careers but they want Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, nine, and seven-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne to have the best upbringing while on the move.
The 51-year-old actor explained: "Our life is their normal. Because we're migratory workers in a sense they have this wonderful thing where they get to be students of the world.
"They have memories of being in Vietnam, or that time in Paris, or over in Calgary. The downside is friends, sleepovers, team sports - these have been the challenges that we've had to work out.
"We do those things but we really have to go out of our way. And mom is a matador about it all - she's fantastic. We get their friends to us a lot.
"And then when we set up in one place for any length of time I get on the team sports, because I really want them to have that understanding of being on the team."
And, although the talented pair met and fell in love on the set of 'Mr and Mrs Smith' in 2004, the handsome star has admitted he didn't really know the true meaning of love until his eyes first locked on the faces of his young family.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper's magazine, he said: Everyone talks about the joy of having kids - blah, blah, blah. But I never knew how much I could love something until I looked in the faces of my children."
