In an appearance yesterday on Good Morning America, Brad Pitt talked about the "pervasive" sense of sadness he felt as a boy growing up in the Midwest, and how becoming a father of four helped to turn it all around. Of children Maddox, 6, Pax, 3 1/2, Zahara 2 1/2, and Shiloh, 15-months, Brad said:
They say the funniest things I’ve ever heard. They’re the funniest people I’ve ever met.
Joining in the fun, of course, is Brad’s partner Angelina Jolie. The actor said he is grateful for her presence in his life, as well as the lives of their children.
One of the things I’m most happy about for my kids is that they have a mother like they do, because she is, she’s amazing.
Of parenthood, Brad said "It’s the greatest thing I’ve ever taken on."
It’s the most difficult, the most rewarding and the most fun. I think this is the greatest thing I could possibly achieve, and hats off to all the parents out there.
