Angelina Jolie's brother – yes, that brother – is now her full-time nanny in wake of Brad Pitt divorce

Angelina Jolie made waves when she passionately kissed her brother on the lips and declared she was "in love" with him in 2000.

And in the wake of her divorce from Brad Pitt, Ange's elder sibling is taking a prominent role in her life once again.

A source tells that the actress' 43-year-old big bro James Haven (they share parents Jon Voight and the late Marcheline Bertrand) is working as a nanny for her and her six children at their rented mansion in Malibu.

"He took on a more active daily role in June," the source told. "The kids call him 'Uncle James.'"

And although Angelina, 41, infamously said, "I'm so in love with my brother right now," in her Oscars 2000 acceptance speech, Brad was apparently never bothered by their close relationship.

"Brad thinks highly of James," says the source. "He's always been incredible to the kids and is welcome in his home."

Angelina has temporary sole custody of her and Brad's children - Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 - and the clan are currently attending therapy to cope with their parents' split.

"They have six kids and want things to be as uninterrupted as possible," a second source told . "It didn't make sense, all of a sudden, for the kids to have two different households.

You don't just immediately create a new world for those children."
