Brad Pitt BEGS Angelina Jolie To Quit Acting & Stay Home With The Kids! Will She Do It?

Angie’s stint as a stay-at-home mom this summer not only had the kids grinning from ear to ear — it made Brad happy too! But is she ready to keep up with mommy duty and give up work?

If daddy Brad Pitt gets his way, Angelina Jolie will be spending much less time on the big screen and much more time doting on the couple’s six kids — Maddox, 10, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and 3-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The actor, 48, is begging Angie to put her career on hold for the sake of their children, but she’s NOT having it!

While Brad has been a hands-on dad in the past, this summer he spent most of his time shooting his new zombie-flick World War Z in London while Angelina took the brunt of parental duty. And the kids — and Brad — have loved every minute of it.

“Brad has asked Angelina to take the next year off from work so that she can spend more time with the family,” an insider reveals to In Touch magazine. “He feels like the children’s emotional problems — particularly Pax’s tendency to act out and Shiloh’s brattiness — have gotten better with their mother around. He thinks they’d improve even more if they got more time with her.”

But although Angelina, 36, loves spending every waking moment with her kids and enjoys being a full-time mom, she’s not ready to give up her career, especially with more movie roles lined up. She wants Brad to take his turn and head back home for a while.

The drama has caused a huge rift among Brad and Angelina and they’re bickering more than ever. But what do YOU think they should do? Keep up their routine of flip-flopping who stays home or should Angie quit acting for a while and be a permanent full-time mom?
