The ac­tor fi­nally reaches a cus­tody agree­ment with Ange

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Celebrity News -

Th hey’ve ’ been b locked l kd in a bit­ter cus­tody bat­tle for 19 months, but Brad Pitt is a happy dad once more af­ter fi­nally con­vinc­ing his ex An­gelina Jolie to let him spend more time with their six kids.

Un­til re­cently, he’s only had lim­ited vis­its with Mad­dox, 16, Pax, 14, Za­hara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivi­enne, with Ange main­tain­ing tem­po­rary sole cus­tody. But Brad, 54, has won out at last – with help from daugh­ter Shiloh.

“Brad pleaded with Ange to let the kids come over more, but she’s been stub­born about it and would only let him see them on court-man­dated dates,” a source tells Wo­man’s Day. “Then she found let­ters in Shiloh’s room that broke her heart. Shi had been writ­ing to her daddy, telling him how much she missed him, but she never posted them.”

In re­cent weeks, neigh­bours near Brad Brad’s s LA es­tate re­ported 42-year-old Ange’s ’ blacked-out SUV ar­riv­ing and leav­ing his home twice a day, sev­eral times a week. The Los Feliz pad is where the kids grew up un­til the split in 2016, and is 10 min­utes from Ange’s new man­sion.

“Ev­ery­one thinks it’s Ange’s driver drop­ping the kids off,” says a source. “Brad lives be­hind huge walls, but some­times you can hear the kids play­ing out­side.”

In­deed, as our exclusive photo shows, the kids’ favourite toy is still in the pool, ready for them when­ever they’re at Dad’s.

“Ange re­alises no good can come from try­ing to keep the kids away from Brad,” adds the source. “He’s so happy to have his big old house filled with the sound of his chil­dren again.”
