The couple and their children 14-year old Maddox, 12-year old Pax, 11-year old Zahara, nine-year old Shiloh and seven-year old twin Vivienne and Knox are renting a home for $21,000 a month near London but want to London for good.
“The house is big, kid-friendly and has all the modern conveniences. They like that there are toy shops in town and that it’s not far from central London. It’s got that peaceful, leafy suburb vibe as well. They love being in London. Angie would pick it as their permanent home if she could,” a source said.
Pitt and Jolie will also not be away from George and Amal Clooney, who are their good friends in the country. They are expected to visit their house down Thames River this summer for a vacation.
The Fight Club star had previously disclosed that, in order to experience a normal life, they fly their children’s friends to wherever they are in the world.
“Our life is their normal. Because we’re migratory workers in a sense they have this wonderful thing where they get to be students of the world,” Pitt said.
He added, “They have memories of being in Vietnam, or that time in Paris, or over in Calgary. The downside is friends, sleepovers, team sports – these have been the challenges that we’ve had to work out. We do those things but we really have to go out of our way. And mom is a matador about it all – she’s fantastic. We get their friends to us a lot.”
“And then when we set up in one place for any length of time I get on the team sports, because I really want them to have that understanding of being on the team,” the actor said.
