It's an especially good time to be Brad Pitt.
The newlywed, 50, opens up about his children with wife Angelina Jolie in the November issue of the U.K.'s Psychologies magazine. Regarding what he's learned from raising Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6, proud papa Pitt, 50, says, "You learn to value the basic beauty of family, of watching your children grow and evolve. It's the most beautiful thing you can experience."
"I feel like the richest man alive since I've become a father," Pitt adds.
How else has the Fury star's life changed since becoming a parent? "Being a father has changed me on so many levels and made me more generous and alive. I see my children as an essential part of my life, and it means so much to be able to educate them and help them make their way in the world as they grow up," the twice-wed actor explains. "I love being a father and all the responsibilities that entails."
As one might imagine, Pitt is a protective parent. "I worry about them all the time," he says of his kids. "That's the emotional bond and responsibility that sweeps over you when you have a family to look after. I care about them more than I care about myself, which I think is the real definition of love. You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family."
