Brad Pitt, 56, is taking in the precious extra time he’s getting with his six children, who he shares with ex-wife Angelina Jolie, 44, due to the stay-at-home orders the coronavirus pandemic has been causing and he’s looking at the bright side of things. “Brad is closer than ever to his kids and is continuing to see them during the shutdown,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “They are still spending lots of quality time with him, actually more than they have in a long time because they are all staying put. Neither Angie or Brad are on location right now and the kids aren’t seeing their friends or going out to take extracurricular classes so in some ways this has really meant even more quality time for them all. Brad cherishes his time with his kids so a big silver lining in this crazy time is more quality time with them.”

Brad has been regularly seeing his kids, who include Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and Knox and Vivienne, 11, ever since he and Angelina, whom he divorced in 2016, came up with a private custody deal in Nov. 2018, but the increase in time together is proving to be nice for not just him, but all of them. “Brad‘s relationship with Zahara is wonderful, she adores her dad,” the source continued. “There has never been an issue there so there was nothing to improve. Brad loves his kids dearly and they love him. Yes, there was a time when things were strained between him and Maddox, but that’s improved greatly. Brad‘s very happy about the direction it’s going in. He doesn’t share a lot though, he’s very private when it comes to the kids. He guards their privacy with his life.”

Earlier this month, a source EXCLUSIVELY told us that both Brad and Angelina are taking the pandemic seriously and are doing their best to protect themselves and their children. “Both Brad and Angelina are taking this seriously and following all guidelines to make sure they are all as protected as possible,” the source explained. “The kids do miss their friends and all their activities, but they’re coping well because they’re such a tight unit. They’re used to having long stretches where they only have each other to play with so they’re better prepared for this than a lot of kids.”
