Reports claim that Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie have invited his parents to come live with them.

According to The Sun, the actor is building an apartment in the grounds of his French property for Bill and Jane Pitt, who are going to help look after Angie and Brad’s growing brood.

A source told the paper: "The whole family is going to move there as soon as the renovations are done. At the moment they have six nannies - one for each of the kids - and the plan is to get rid of the helpers and rely on Bill and Jane."

"The annexe they will live in is an old building which used to be used as a dovecote. It's big enough to have a sitting room, kitchen and a couple of bedrooms. It will make a lovely little cottage for them."

The couple, who seem to be spending more and more time in Europe are said to have asked his parents to make the move because they want a more stable home life for their children.

"They don't want them dragged around the world any longer," said the source. "Brad is traditional and wants them to put down roots and have friends and go to the same school, rather than constantly moving.”
