Since news broke that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are divorcing after more than 10 years together, the one question on everyone’s mind is what does the future look like for the couple’s six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.
And now, In Touch has learned that Brad, 52, will seek full custody of his kids — despite initial reports that he wanted joint physical custody of his brood.

The decision came after Brad was reunited with several of his kids during a supervised visit.
“Once the kids came in, Brad lit up,” a source tells In Touch exclusively. “He had tears in his eyes and tried to hold it together."
The Fight Club star made it clear to the kids that the situation “wasn’t their fault,” but emotions were still high during the "gut-wrenching" visit that had Vivienne and Zahara in tears, begging to go "home" to his LA pad.
