This Christmas will be very special for Brad Pitt, who will finally meet with most of his children after Angelina Jolie made an effort to stay in California.
Many reliable sources have confirmed that the famous actor is happy, and Jolie has decided that this year he will not travel abroad.
The humanitarian is expected to be with Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, and Zahara, 14. While the three youngest Shiloh, 13, and the twins Vivienne and Knox, 11, will be with their father.
The previous couple is also expected to divide the time they spend with the little clan for New Year's Eve.
A person in the know spoke with Hollywood life and shared the following information: "Angelina feels it is important for children to see their dad at Christmas, so he made sure he was in Los Angeles during the holidays so that could happen. They will share time with the children equally during the Christmas, this is how they did it last year and this year will be no different. "
It seems that Jolie changed her mind after sharing her frustration at not being able to live in a foreign country because of Pitt.
An informant added this about the situation: "Angelina is very frustrated that Brad does not agree with her and the children who live abroad. It is the only thing she cannot overcome because it is affecting how she can live her life. Angelina is a citizen of the world, and he has a house in Cambodia, he is building a house in Africa, he would love to raise his children abroad. But that is not something Brad has been willing to agree on, and it has been very clear in that you can't negotiate. So he resigned himself to being in Los Angeles until the twins are 18, but that doesn't mean it doesn't bother him, it's very frustrating. "
It was reported at that time that Pitt was not happy with the interview.
Another family friend said: "Brad is disappointed, it is quite discouraging for her to make that kind of comment and try to paint it like the bad guy, especially because he has been so flexible and understanding when it comes to his travel schedule with the children. But he will not retaliate, and will not respond, he does not feel that it is in the best interest of his children to share details about the custody agreement, so he will remain silent as usual. "
Meanwhile, Pitt seems to be reconnecting with Jennifer Aniston, at least on a friendship level. She invited two of her biggest parties this year.
