Brad Pitt has spoken out about his divorce from Angelina Jolie.

In a statement released to PEOPLE, Pitt said his focus is on the “well-being of our kids.”

“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,” he said in the statement. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”

Jolie filed for divorce from the actor, 52, on Monday after just two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

Jolie also released a statement addressing the divorce: “This decision was made for the health of the family,” the actress’ attorney said. “She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.”

It has been a while since we last heard of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s six children—Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox—and their charmed, globe-trotting existence. At the time, they were exercising their humanitarian muscles, casting shade on their parents’ “ridiculously easy” careers, and, taking a cue from their mother, learning about the world’s many, varied cultures. And now, perhaps knowing that the well for Jolie-Pitt-family fantasy fiction was drying up, the Oscar-winning actress has kindly bestowed a few more details about her children.

In a segment on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour on Friday morning, which she guest-edited, Jolie revealed how her children have only become more accomplished since we last heard of them.

“All the kids are learning different languages,” Jolie revealed. “I asked them what languages they wanted to learn and Shi is learning Khmai, which is a Cambodian language, Pax is focusing on Vietnamese, Mad has taken to German and Russian, Z is speaking French, Vivienne really wanted to learn Arabic, and Knox is learning sign language.”

(And now, a moment for us to pause and imagine the six Jolie-Pitt children chattering around the dinner table in different languages as Brad, still stuck on Rosetta Stone’s second Spanish lesson, pleads, “English, please!”)

Brad Pitt will be taking care of the turkey this year, the 51-year-old actor revealed when talking about his Thanksgiving plans. It seems Brad isn’t afraid to spend hours in the kitchen dishing up a feast for his wife Angelina Jolie and the couple’s six children.

“I’ll get in there, I’ll mess it up a little bit,” he joked to Extra on the red carpet. “We got Thanksgiving, man, I’m all over that turkey.”

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate =)

One of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples – Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt – stunned on the red carpet Wednesday night.

The A-list pair stepped out for the WSJ Magazine 2015 Innovator Awards, where they kept close to one another on the red carpet at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

The pair might play a couple struggling with their marriage in their upcoming film, By the Sea, but there were certainly no signs of strife between the real-life couple Wednesday. The couple sweetly stayed close for most of the evening, and when Jolie Pitt stepped away for solo photos Pitt cast a protective eye over her to make sure she looked comfortable.

The duo sat with Robert De Niro inside the event, and the Oscar-winning actor presented Jolie Pitt with the WSJ Innovator Award for Entertainment/Film.

When we first heard that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt wed in the South of France last year, we imagined that the nuptials took place in the clouds above the family vineyard, with God himself conducting the ceremony and their six children bearing witness in a scene so heavenly Michelangelo would have painted it on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. As details of the Jolie-Pitt union spilled forth, however, the wedding of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars proved to be charmingly more homespun than we envisioned—with Pax baking the cake, Zahara and Vivienne serving as flower girls, the kids writing the marital vows, and the children’s drawings even adorning Jolie’s wedding gown. And in a new interview, Jolie suggests that the wedding may have meant more to us than it did to the superstars.

When asked about the nuptials while promoting By the Sea, the dark relationship drama she wrote and directed that re-unites her and Pitt on-screen, Jolie responds nonchalantly, “It was just a nice thing.” Jolie, perhaps the only human who might call a wedding to Brad Pitt “just a nice thing,” explains her casual attitude about the nuptials.

“The ceremony was in France, but we had to do things legally in California,” Jolie continues to The New York Times. “One day I was in the edit room, and [Brad] was doing something and an assistant said, ‘You have to sign some papers.’ So we came back and between meetings we were told, ‘Here’s your license.’

“Then someone said, ‘The judge is outside,’” Jolie continues. “We both said, ‘What do you mean, the judge is outside?’ Then the judge came in, this lovely guy, and at some point, Brad said, ‘Shouldn’t we be standing up?’ The judge said, ‘No.’ Then suddenly we realized we were married, in the most unceremonial way possible.”

As Angelina Jolie made the difficult decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in March, her mother’s own eight-year battle with cancer was never far from her mind.

“We had some of the same nurses, some of the same doctors,” Jolie told Tom Brokaw in a rare joint interview with husband Brad Pitt on TODAY Monday. “So, the doctor that did my ovary surgery was my mother’s doctor. And apparently my mother had said to her, ‘Promise me you will take Angie’s ovaries out.’ So when we kind of got together, we both had a big cry, and she said, ‘I promised your mother, and I gotta do this.'”

Jolie’s mother, actress Marcheline Bertrand, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1999 and died at 56 years old in 2007. Jolie and Pitt’s upcoming movie, “By the Sea,” was inspired by Jolie’s bereavement after her mother’s death. Jolie not only acts in the film but also is the writer, director and producer.
