On Sunday, I published the new photos we had of Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and all six of their children. The brood was walking around New Orleans, and they ended up buying some treats at Verti Market. The photos were cute, and notable because there hasn’t been a six-kid-strong public outing in a while. Also notable: how big Vivienne and Knox (and Fax Cannes, for that matter) are getting, and how all of the biological children basically all look alike. Anyway, for some reason, this outing was important enough to make the cover of People Magazine this week. Weird, right?
The family that sightsees together, stays together.
Roaming New Orleans last weekend, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were just continuing their family tradition of on-the-go together time with their brood of six: Maddox, 9; Pax, 7; Zahara, 6; Shiloh, 4; and 2-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
But the famously globetrotting clan isn’t always on the road: With the kids getting older, school schedules have started to take precedence and the family is often based in Los Angeles – where their day-to-day life is surprisingly ordinary.
“The family live in a way that can best be described as organized chaos,” an insider tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Of course it’s wild when all the kids are there, and evening tends to be a bit chaotic with dinner and bedtime.”
Pitt, 47, and Jolie, 35, “are both good with rules, and there are definitely consequences, like time-outs, for bad behavior,” adds the source. “But for the most part the kids all get along.”
Okay, this is actually starting to scare me a little, because I genuinely like/adore the Jolie-Pitts. What is up with them? Why the People Magazine cover reinforcing their solidarity? What are they trying to prove? It feels like there’s another shoe that’s about to drop. And I’ve said it before – I can handle whatever negative Jolie-Pitt story there is, because there are millions of negative stories and Angelina and Brad manage to keep on making it work. But I get suspicious and worried whenever their press gets too positive and ass-kissy. And this cover makes me suspicious.
