Brad Pitt is Finally Reunited With His Kids But the Details Are Heartbreaking

Brad Pitt with kidsSay what you will about this celebrity dad, but we imagine he has to be really hurting right now. One month after Angelina Jolie rocked the world by filing for divorce, Brad Pitt was finally able to spend time with his kids. But it sounds like the long-awaited reunion was brief, which had to be pretty heartbreaking for the Fight Club actor as well as the children.

According to Access Hollywood, Pitt was able to spend less than an hour with some -- not all -- of the six children he and Angela share.

Making things presumably that much more uncomfortable for the 52-year-old is the fact that a therapist supervised the visit as ordered by the LA County Department of Children and Family Services, according to the source, who also says Angelina was in the home at the time but the couple did not interact. Awkward -- for everyone. Because we don't know all the details, this may be in the best interest of the children. Still, it has to be pretty painful for all.

Having your parents split at any age is never easy and being in the public eye, with rumors constantly swirling about the cause for the break-up, has to make it that much harder on Maddox, 15; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shiloh, 10; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8. 

Even when he and Angelina first got together more than a decade ago, after co-starring in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Brad always seemed to be a hands-on dad to Maddox. As they expanded their family, the Benjamin Button star truly seemed to cherish his role as a father and was seen beaming beside his brood whether they were walking the red carpet or hurrying through airports. That said, we don't know what was going on behind the scenes, so to speak.

Needless to say, we feel for these kids. Going a month without seeing your father is tough for any child. But seeing him only for one hour and with a stranger monitoring your interactions has to be that much more upsetting. And knowing your mom wants nothing to do with your dad puts them in a really tough spot.

We'll never know exactly what happened to cause the split but, of course, the health and safety of the children should come ahead of all else. We hope they get all help they need to move forward in the best way possible.
