Brad Pitt is really starting to open up about family life and being a dad of six.
And he's even talking marriage, including whether or not he and Angelina Jolie will tie the knot one day!
"The kids ask about marriage. It's meaning more and more to them. So it's something we've got to look at.
Kids hold up a mirror to you….You can't make excuses. You've got to make sure they've brushed their teeth and eaten a good breakfast. You want to be present if they wake up with a bad dream."
Brad admits that fears about his children's safety "keep me up at night," and explains that when it comes to paparazzi, "we're hunted." He adds:
"Our kids have to live behind a gate. Outside, there are people with cameras. But I'll take the trade-off. I never knew I was capable of experiencing so much love."
Aww, such a sweet thing to say about his kids. As for organizing his big brood, Brad reveals that the older kids are home-schooled and are so used to jetting off around the world, they've been trained to travel light, but to also, somehow, still have a normal childhood. He says:
"On the road, we're a military mobile unit…. The kids have got their stuff down to one backpack, and they're each responsible for their own bag. Mom does the packing. She's quite gifted at that; puts in just what we need, nothing extra.
Angie and I do everything we can to carve out some semblance of normalcy for them, to re-create the kinds of moments that were special for us. It's not unusual for the kids to be covered in paint. We have mud fights. It's chaos from morning until the lights go out, and sometimes after that."
And when talking about sex, or having "mommy and daddy time," Brad admits that he and Angie are pretty open about that. He reveals:
"There are no secrets at our house. We tell the kids, 'Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.' They go, 'Eww, gross!' But we demand it."
LOLz!! That's so cute! And with six kids, it's so great to see that they can keep the romance alive.
It sounds like Brad and Angelina are doing an amazing job raising their children and making sure they take time to enjoy each other too. That's probably why the family always looks so happy! A lot of Hollywood couples could learn a thing or two from them!
