Brad Pitt, 54, and Angelina Jolie, 43, have been locked in a tense custody battle over their six children, Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahra, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
However, it’s now claimed that the former couple will share time with their large brood over the Christmas holidays, making for quite the amicable agreement.
‘His new agreement with Angelina allows for them to split time with the kids over the coming holidays and they will all be spending time in L.A., close to each other.’
They added: ‘Brad’s relationship with the two older boys has improved significantly since the split. While things are not perfect, they are all getting along well and the boys and Brad are in a good place.’
It’s been a turbulent year for the Jolie-Pitt family as Brad and Angelina continue to hash out their divorce settlement in court. The Mr & Mrs Smith actors announced their split in September 2016 after two years of marriage before Angelina filed for physical custody of their six children.
However, a judge ruled against her request and ordered a temporary agreement for Brad to have increased access to the kids. It’s believed that Brad sees the children more frequently, including every other day for four hours on school days and 12 hours on a non-school day.
Earlier in December, Angelina’s lawyer revealed the actress had reached a final custody agreement with Brad, meaning they have avoided a nasty trial.
Lawyer Samantha Bley DeJean said in a statement: “A custody arrangement was agreed to 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.’
