“Nicole is mature beyond her years, educated and well-traveled,” the insider says of the 27-year-old. “They share a passion for the arts and have a ton in common.” Brad, 56, has “totally fallen for her.”
Although they are in the early stages of their romance, they are “enjoying” their time together, another source told In Touch after the pair was photographed landing at the Le Castellet Airport together on Wednesday, August 26. “Not only has Brad fallen for her beauty; Nicole is young, carefree, fun to be around and intelligent.”
Following the Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood actor’s legal drama with ex Angelina Jolie, “Brad feels Nicole is a breath of fresh air,” the insider added. In early August, the mother of six filed court documents requesting to disqualify the judge in their custody trial, but Brad’s lawyers claimed Angie’s demand was a “thinly veiled attempt” at delaying their already drawn-out divorce.
The exes have been trying to solidify their split since they filed for divorce in 2016. While they still might be working out all the details concerning their custody agreement, child support and finances, they both have their children’s best interests in mind.
Although Brad and Angelina’s kids — Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Vivienne and Knox, both 12 — had a tumultuous relationship with their dad in the past, they appear to be on better terms in recent months.
In December, the Ad Astra actor enjoyed his birthday “at home with some of his kids,” a third source told In Touch exclusively at the time. While the celebration was “very low-key,” he “wouldn’t have had it any other way.”
Following Brad’s “long, drawn-out divorce and custody battle from Angelina, he’s grateful that they’re moving forward and coparenting better than ever,” the insider added. “He was beaming with pride and gratitude.”
Only time will tell if Nicole will be introduced to his kids.
