The world has long recovered from the shocking news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s decision to go their separate ways back in September 2016. However, we are yet to see how things will unfold following their years-long battle for custody over their children. Although the former power couple previously expressed their desire to continue spending the holidays together “as a family,” it would appear those plans, much like 2020, have been canceled.
Former Lovers Turned Enemies Amid Custody Rights
An insider source recently shared that it had been agreed between the pair that Brad Pitt could spend Christmas Eve with three of his kids, namely twins Knox and Vivienne, both 11, and daughter Shiloh, 14. The other three children the couple shares are Maddox, 19, Zahara, 15, and Pax, 16, who allegedly spent the holidays with their mom. The reason behind this family separation during the holidays, the source says, is that “egos have once again derailed the original plan of coming together for the festive season.”
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Relationship Remains ‘Tense’
People close to the former couple say that Angelina has denied Brad’s wish for them to have a 50/50 joint legal and physical custody of the kids. The holiday custody matter was resolved before a judge last year, which is telling enough of the tense relationship between both actors.
Speculations as to why the relations between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have worsened in the last few months continue to circle the media. Some say Jolie is frustrated with the setbacks of the custody court case, while others speculate she doesn’t approve of Pitt’s rumored flings, and there’s also the fact that the pandemic prevented her from doing her charity work overseas, which has probably added more fuel to the fire. Brad was last reported to be dating model Nicole Poturalski, 27, but whether the pair is still together is highly doubtful.
William Trice Battle and his wife Lauren recently welcomed a beautiful boy into the world. The boy was named Roman Creed, and the couple began raising him together. In an interview, William talked about the sacrifice his wife went through during her pregnancy and the birth of their newborn.
A New Purpose Following the Sacrifice
In the interview, William also mentions that his life has now been filled with a new purpose. He talks about his love growing every day for both his newborn son and his wife, Lauren. William states that one of the greatest things he can do for his son is to love his son’s mother with all that he has.
He showed his immense love for his wife by writing an open letter to his son, Roman. Throughout the letter, William describes all the thoughts and emotions that go through his mind, along with his heart, when he thinks about his wife, in great detail. He also mentions the sacrifice that she went through with her body and emotions. William hopes that one day, his son will be able to understand him.
Everlasting Love to Follow
In the letter, William did a phenomenal job of putting his feelings into words, and as people read them, they are able to grasp the complexity of feelings that everyone has for their loved ones alike.
Even though the open letter was written to Roman, William admitted that he also wrote it for his wife. He mentions that Lauren feels most loved through words, and he tries to not only tell her in person as often as he can but also write truly meaningful things to her. He will sometimes share what he writes with others, like in this case about her sacrifice for Roman.
William shared that the love between a husband and wife shouldn’t die when their children are born. Instead, love should grow as the children are a reminder of their love for one another.
