The couple has six children together.

It was the news that shocked just about everyone: less than a year ago, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced their separation.

However, reports from the US now state that the high-profile former couple have put their divorce on hold.

Numerous sources explain that with Brad cleaning up his act and quitting alcohol, Angie is seriously considering a reconciliation.

Indeed, one insider explicitly told Us Weekly: “The divorce is off. They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to.”

They added that Ms Jolie is “still so in love with him”.

The couple has six children: Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11 and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

In the September issue of Vanity Fair, Oscar-winning Angelina admitted that they’re now “all trying our best to heal our family”.

In an explosive interview with GQ back in June, 53-year-old Mr Pitt admitted that his drinking had been problematic and that his parenting style needed amending.

He explained that he had started therapy and had quit booze in favour of cranberry juice and art-sessions.

Brad and Angelina controversially – and infamously – met on the set and Mr & Mrs Smith when he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.

They were together for 12 years and married for two before they announced their split in September last year.

Just prior their split, there was an alleged ‘altercation’ involving Brad and Maddox aboard a private jet.

Angelina had been seeking sole custody of their children.
