Angelina Jolie's Brother Serving As The Family 'Manny'

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie agree on at least one thing: their "manny." Jolie's brother, actor James Haven, has reportedly become a nearly full-time caretaker for the couple's six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.

"[Haven] took on a more active daily role in June [2016]," a Brangelina insider told Us Weekly. "The kids call him 'Uncle James.'" The source continued, "Brad thinks highly of James. He's always been incredible to the kids and is welcome in his home."

Those who've followed Jolie's life and career may be surprised to know that Pitt, 52, is okay with her brother watching their tykes, considering the Oscar winner's unusually close relationship with Haven. The pair raised a slew of eyebrows when she took Haven as her date to the Academy Awards in 2000 and behaved very affectionately with him.

However, Jolie and Haven's childhood nanny, Cis Rundle, told Radar Online (via the Mirror), "The day she kissed Jamie at the Oscars, it was the first day Marcheline [Bertrand, Jolie and Haven's mother] was treated for cancer. They left the hospital together and got ready together." Rundle added, "Nobody in the world knew that they spent the day in the hospital. It was like, 'Look where we're at now.' But the world saw something incestual. It was meant to be, 'Here we are.' They only ever had each other. They had a very tight relationship with each other and their mother."

Haven, 43, will reportedly provide some stability for the children until formal custody agreements are made. "They have six kids and want things to be as uninterrupted as possible. It didn't make sense, all of a sudden, for the kids to have two different households," said the source for Us Weekly. "You don't just immediately create a new world for those children."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Jolie, 41, and the couple's children began therapy this week, and it seems like the family's situation is improving. People reports that Pitt saw his children on Oct. 6, 2016 for the first time since the divorce news broke the month prior. "Brad has spent some wonderful time with children recently," a source told People. "Brad loves his children more than anything in this world, and they matter more than anything else to him. He will do whatever it takes to be with them, now and always."
