Despite the hype and the glamour surrounding Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, they are just like regular people. Angelina reportedly spends every holiday planning activities for children and Pitt joins in on the fun. Their activities at home are just like regular people, making breakfast, taking care of kids, and making sure that they don’t fight with each other when mum and dad are away for work.
Jolie’s latest stint as a director may be a romantic drama about a couple going through marital trouble, but she and Pitt are a happy couple. They have the same kind of priorities that regular people have, their kids coming first on every list. Their entire lives are wrapped around their kids’ priorities.
Jolie admits to the fact that they like to come home to the loving kids after a hard day at work. So her work as a director may have come with its share of difficulties but her kids and her family help her keep her sense of perspective and what is truly important in life. She admitted to loving to come home to the world of “bedtime stories, children’s needs and problems, the fights they’d had during the day.”
Jolie says that Pitt and Jolie are “dorky parents.” We suppose that it is a good thing for their children. Imagine what may have happened if Jolie and Pitt had been prima donna parents who fancied themselves to be stars. The kids would have felt neglected, or worse, pampered.
It is good to know that the star couple knew that their priorities ought to change after they had children in their family. And it is just as good that their entire world revolves around their children. Raising children right can be tricky as a task. It is one of those things that are hard to get right. But we think that Jolie and Pitt are off to a great start on the front.
