Brad Pitt is said to be “walking on eggshells” around his ex-wife Angelina Jolie as he moves on with his new girlfriend, Ines de Ramon.

Brad shares six children with the fellow actress, three are adopted – Maddox, 22, Pax, and Zahara – while three are biological – Shiloh, 17, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 15. He is reportedly keen to introduce his new partner to his children, but ideally wants to “avoid drama” with their mother, who sources claim is “their best friend.”

Insiders said: “Brad’s walking on eggshells when it comes to introducing his children to his new girlfriend. [Angelina is] not just the kids’ mother, she’s their best friend.

“Can you imagine what a meeting would be like between the kids and Ines?” the source told the National Enquirer. “No wonder he’s in no rush to make the introductions!”

The 60-year-old has been dating Ines since late 2022. His relationship with Ines seems to be going great, as the insider said: “He is in a loving relationship, his relationship with most of his kids is loving [and] he’s in a good place.”

The insider told US Weekly: “All Brad wants this year is for his kids and himself to be happy.” Brad has recently been in the news after two of his adopted children slammed him for his parenting. His son Pax, 20, called him a ” world-class a**hole ” on Instagram while his daughter, Zahara, 18, dropped her father’s last name as she joined the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority at Spelman College.

Ines is reportedly Brad’s first relationship since his separation from Angelina in 2016. The divorce was finalised in 2019.

His and Angelina’s relationship seemed to be tumultuous near the end, as Brad was investigated by the FBI and the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services due to a fight that “escalated” when Maddox stood up for his mother while Brad supposedly was drunkenly yelling at her. Brad was cleared of all charges.

Even though Brad was cleared, his relationship with old of his eldest kids seems to be estranged.
