Why Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Have Slowed Down Their Divorce Process -- And No, They're Not Getting Back Together

Are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie calling off their divorce? Not so fast!

On Wednesday, US Weekly reported that the 42-year-old actress is second-guessing the divorce and willing to take back the Allied star if he "showed he's committed to raising a family." © Provided by ETOnline

However, a source tells ET that, "There's a pause in the [divorce] process because they both made children the priority, but nothing significant has changed in their relationship."

Last month, Jolie spoke out about her separation, children and life as a single mom in an intimate interview with Vanity Fair. The tell-all "surprised" many of the former couple's family and friends as Pitt's main concern has always been to protect their six children -- Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – from the spotlight, refusing to speak publicly about them.

"It's surprising that Angelina would use the children to help herself in the story, especially after years where both were dedicated to protecting their privacy," a family friend told ET in July.

Pitt gave his own tell-all to GQ back in May, where he opened up about his personal struggles, yet never discussed his children.

"Both parents care a lot about their kids and being supportive of their best interests," a source told ET following the release of Jolie's VF piece. "That's all that matters. Hopefully people can focus on that."

As of now, both stars are focused on their careers and the well-being of their kids. For more on their post-split interviews, watch the video below.
