How Brad Pitt's Kids Are Making Him Rich

Brad Pitt has managed to get even hotter, impossible as it seems. He's positively gushing about how being a father made him "the richest man in the world."

Forget the French chateau and assorted mansions, the $300,000 motorcycles, the designer duds, the luxury cars ... it's Brad Pitt's kids with new wife Angelina Jolie that make his life beautiful.

Is there anything hotter?


"Being a father has changed me on so many levels and made me more generous and alive," Pitt told Psychologies. "I see my children as an essential part of my life, and it means so much to be able to educate them and help them make their way in the world as they grow up. I love being a father and all the responsibilities that entails."

Awwwwwwwwwww. Brad, you had me at "generous and alive."

As you probably know, Pitt has six kids. He's dad to son Maddox, 13, son Pax, 10, daughter Zahara, 9, daughter Shiloh, 8, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6. It's a full house, the Jolie-Pitt chateau. Yeah, I am sure he has help and the money is amazing, but it's clear he cherishes his children, enjoys being a hands-on dad, and thinks the sun rises and sets on his family.

"I worry about them all the time," Pitt said. "That's the emotional bond and responsibility that sweeps over you when you have a family to look after. I care about them more than I care about myself, which I think is the real definition of love. You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family."

Can you completely relate to Brad's sentiments or what? That whole saying "when you're a parent, your heart beats outside of your chest" is so true. The awesome responsibility of raising a child is both the most intimidating and rewarding experience. And it does make life beautiful.
