Angelina and Brad seem so happy together. So, what’s their secret? “The children certainly tie us together, but a relationship won’t hold if it’s only about the kids,” Angie reveals to Parade Magazine for its issue out Sunday.
Angie believes that a mom and dad must be happy together in order be great parents to the kids. She says, “If Brad and I are strong and happy, then our kids have happy parents, and that’s the best thing we can give them…Brad knows me completely, exactly as I am, every part of me. He loves me. The kids love me. They know all my flaws and all my oddities. And they accept them. And so I can feel complete.”
Spending time with her hubby is a top priority, Angie admits. “There’s never a period when Brad and I are pulled apart. We are not separated for more than three days, ever. We stay really connected. We actually don’t go out much. It’s funny. We’re very homebound. We’re very much Mommy and Daddy in our pajamas.” It’s so hard to imagine Brad and Angie sitting at home in their PJ’s – such a departure from their glamorous life in the media!
Angie reflects about the importance of love. “Love elevates,” she says. “Love? It’s such a funny word. Brad can find certain phrases of poetry for it. I’m terrible at it. But I know it means wanting the best for the people you love, putting their interests above your own, always. Love does that. Love is what you live for.”
That’s a beautiful way to put it, Angie. Cheers to you and Brad!
