Now that they're finally engaged, it appears that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie wanted to go ahead and plant down some roots. Well, sort of. They just rented a sprawling mansion in England where they will live with their brood for 15 months while filming there. And considering just how much they tend to globe-trot, 15 months in one place almost seems like an eternity.
But judging from how nice this new pad sounds, I highly doubt any of the members of the Jolie-Pitt family will get antsy to pick up and move anytime soon.
The house is in the Richmond area of London and has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, which means each of the kiddos can have their own room (and I guess Brad and Angie can sleep in separate bedrooms too for nights when things aren't so rosy between them).
The home also has a playground and an indoor pool, so it sounds like there will be no shortage of daily entertainment and fun for Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne, and Knox. (Geez. My kid would love to have a playdate at their place sometime.)
Of course, you can't expect Angie and Brad to maintain a house that big without a little help, which is why there are also separate quarters for staff to live. Supposedly they've already hired a full-time chef, so I'm guessing they won't spend too much time together as a family in the kitchen. But I guess we can't blame them for wanting to cut down on household chores. Most of us would probably hire help too if we could afford it. If nothing else, having extra hands around to cook and clean will give them more quality time with the kids, right?
Do you think Angie & Brad and their kids will fit in across the pond?
