He’s single and ready to mingle! Brad Pitt is dating again, a source exclusively told In Touch magazine, on newsstands now. The 55-year-old actor “has put himself back on the market, and for the first time in years, he’s having the time of his life,” the insider dished.

It’s refreshing to see the Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood star smiling again since he was in a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie for a long time. Finally, in November 2018, the former flames called a truce, and now, they have gotten better at equally spending time with their six children — Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Knox and Vivienne, both 10.

“He suffered for years with Angie, and the aftermath of their breakup was brutal,” the source continued. “Now, as their divorce comes to an end, he feels light. The sparkle is back in his eyes. He’s sober and looks better than he has in years, so he’s not having any problems finding dates.”

The handsome hunk is seeing a few women at the moment, and it seems like he has his dates mapped out already. “He picks up his ladies on his motorcycle, which they love, and has wined and dined them at friends’ restaurants where he can enter through the back door and enjoy an old-fashioned date in a private dining area,” the insider confessed. “He’s also taken one or two of them back to his art studio for intimate dinners and has gone hiking in Malibu on private trails behind the homes of some of his famous friends.”

The source added, “It’s a great idea for a date. The hikes are very private and very romantic with waterfalls and wildlife.” OK, can we come along too?
