Brad Pitt loves the 'chaos' of a big family

Brad Pitt says he is loving every minute of raising six children with Angelina Jolie.

The 48-year-old actor looks after Maddox, 11, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, and four-year-old twins with Angelina, and Brad says he loves having such a big family.

'I would describe it as a beautiful and controlled form of chaos,' the Metro reports the star as saying.

'Sometimes you're tired and you kind of function on the automatic, but I really appreciate this time where the kids are still young and they're forming right in front of your eyes.'

Despite the hectic nature of their parents' careers, Brad says the children cope just fine.

'They're expert travellers,' said Brad. 'They know the routine by now.'
