Angelina Jolie Lets Once-Estranged Dad Jon Voight Babysit Her Brood!

The star took Shiloh, 5, Zahara, 6 and Pax, 7, to a park near their London summer home on Saturday, August 27, and treated them to ice cream while they all watched a cricket match!

The tender picture is particularly poignant because Jon Voight was BANNED from seeing his grandkids for years after a bitter feud with his superstar daughter Angelina Jolie!

“They seemed really close and happy,” An onlooker tells People.com. “It was all just lots of kiddie stuff and the children really seemed to be enjoying themselves.”

It may seem like a normal family outing — but Jon could never imagine spending a day with his grandkids just a few years ago.

Angelina cut off all contact with her father in 2002 after he claimed in an interview she needed psychological help for what he called “serious mental problems!”

The feud dragged on for almost a decade, until the dad and daughter duo patched things up in 2010 during a vacation in Venice.

And it seems like grandpa really IS back in the family fold! The 72-year-old is even stepping up and babysitting the Brangelina brood when mom has her hands full.

A source tells People.com, “Angelina is now doing bits of work herself, and Brad is obviously busy with his filming, [and] there are obviously times when the childcare clashes. So it’s a case of Grandpa to the rescue!”

I really like this family.. Dispite what tabloids SAY ,from what I SEE they have an awesome family. I love the examples that Angelina and Brad set without even trying.. Family is love, pure and simple.. Luv it!
