Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reunited for the sake of their children. The couple are spending quality time with their six children - Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox (8)

A source told Hollywood Life: "When Brad and Angelina talk these days it's just about the kids. Either Brad's ringing one of the phones to speak to them, and Angie picks up, or they talk directly together about any child related issues as and when they arise."

"They both have excellent management and legal teams dealing with all the other stuff, and neither sees the point in calling just to have a friendly chat, or to rehash old business," the insider added.

"The most important thing for them both has been to get to a stage where they are able to put the anger behind them and communicate in a healthy manner once again for the sake of the kids," the source shared.

"The split is still too painful and emotions still too raw for them to be talking about what went wrong, and what could have been different. It would be like picking at a scab, they both need to heal more first," the insider said.

Pitt has been living alone since Jolie filed for divorce from him in September 2016.

Meanwhile, during a recent interview with GQ, the 53-year-old actor revealed his priority right now are the couple's children. He said: "Family first. People on their deathbeds don't talk about what they obtained or were awarded."

"They talk about their loved ones or their regrets—that seems to be the menu. I say that as someone who's let the work take me away. Kids are so delicate. They absorb everything. They need to have their hand held and things explained. They need to be listened to. When I get in that busy work mode, I'm not hearing. I want to be better at that," Pitt added.
