How do Angelina and Brad juggle six children and two high-profile movie careers? Angie credits Brad with keeping the balance by being a “hands-on father.”

Last night on CNN‘s Larry King Live, Angelina Jolie revealed what every working mother wants to know: how she balances her very busy, successful career and her very busy, happy home life. And she credits 46-year-old Brad Pitt with keeping everything in balance! Does this sound familiar? Do the men in your lives provide a lot of support?

They’re open to having more kids. Can you believe it?

“Brad is an extremely, extremely hands-on, wonderful father,” Angie, 35, told the talk show host. “And we take turns working. So when I was shooting The Tourist, for example, he was home with the kids and helping them with school and bringing them to visit sets and — so we try to never — we never work at the same time. We never separate the family. And that’s the best thing we can do to try to keep it all balanced.”

It’s refreshing to see a star who openly admits and appreciates just how good her situation is. “I’m very, very lucky that I have a career where it seems like I’m very busy but I work for a few months and then I have months off. So my schedule is not as demanding as many, many mothers across the world who have — some have two, three jobs and no help. So I’m — you know, mine is not as difficult,” says Angelina.

Angelina loses her temper and takes it out on Shiloh

We love how she gives a shout-out to working moms who do it all themselves, and how even though we never publicly see the cadre of Jolie-Pitt nannies, she admits that she does indeed have help. Kudos, Ang!
