Angelina Jolie was seen out and about and all smiles while doing some Christmas shopping with three of her children – Shiloh, 12, and the twins Viviane and Knox,10. We can’t get over how big these three are now!
After two years of ugly batteling, a child custody agreement was finally reached between famous exes last month. Angelina famously wanted sole physical custody and Brad, 54, wanted 50/50 joint custody of their six kids and that was the reason that the whole family was supposed to go on trial to have a judge help them got to an agreement. Now, after Brad has been begging Angelina not to do this to the kids, they have found a way to resolve the issues once and for all.
Angelina’s attorney Samantha Bley DeJean shared on Nov. 30 that: “A custody arrangement was agreed two weeks ago and has been signed by both parties and the judge. The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial. The filing and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children.”
“The former couple finally realized the ongoing fight is only hurting the children, and it’s expected to be finalized very soon,” says a source. Brad originally was the one who wanted to keep his kids out of court, since he didn’t want them to have to face the rigors of a trial. Now it appears that Angelina agrees.
A family member revelaed to the Star that Angie and Brad’s breakup has been especially hard on Shiloh: “She’s the most sensitive of all the kids, and she’s definitely the most upset by the divorce.”
In an interview with ELLE Angelina has shared that the family calls Viviane her ‘shadow’ because she is always around her. “We call her my shadow because there’s nothing I can do to shake her. I can be tired, I can be grumpy, I can be in a terrible mood, and she doesn’t care. It’s ‘Mommy, Mommy,’ and she’ll cling to me.”
In another interview for ELLE back in 2014 Angelina said: “I never thought I’d have children. Having come from a broken home — you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them.”
