True love may exist after all! More than a decade after Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt dominated the headlines, they’re making news again — but this time, their story is very different. More than 10 years after announcing their divorce, the two are giving their love a second shot.

The news comes after news of Brad’s divorce from Angelina Jolie and news that Jen’s marriage to Justin Theroux is on the rocks, the two have been leaning on each other more than usual. “Brad and Jen have bonded like never before over the past year,” a friend tells In Touch exclusively. “And they’ve been helping each other through their respective troubles.” The two have been able to reconnect after Brad opened up to Jen after his split, and confessed all the ways that he wronged her and apologized in an effort to make it right. The friend adds, “She was left speechless by Brad’s stunning admission. Jen was deeply touched by Brad’s heartfelt words, and it has remained on her mind ever since.”

While the friend says “Brad wouldn’t think of breaking up Jen’s marriage,” that doesn’t mean that there isn’t still love between the two exes. The friend adds, “Yes, he and Jen had a terrible breakup and divorce. But brad remembers the good times with Jen above all else. She’ll always be his greatest love — his soul mate‚ and he’s relying on her as his closest confidante right now.”

While sobriety — and another failed marriage — helped Brad realize how poorly he treated Jen, those closest to him say that basically anything is possible now that their relationship is the best spot its been in in years. “Now he feels that if he hadn’t been [drunk], he might have paid more attention to Jen and his relationship — and they might still be married,” the source explains. A friend adds, “If the stars align, Brad and Jen could end up remarried.”
