Brad Pitt will spend summer with kids after Angelina Jolie took them to New ...

While he's been trying to be an active co-parent to his six children, distance has made it difficult.

But Brad Pitt is now cutting down on his responsibilities so that he can spend time with his children Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
