Angelina: "Kids Are Not Asking" Me to Wed Brad

Celebrity Moms Jul. 12, 2010 AT 11:22AM

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie once said they'd only wed when it was legal for everyone to do so.

Now they are changing their tune.

"I think it'd be hard to say no to the kids," Jolie, 35, told Nightline while promoting her spy thriller, Salt (out July 23).

But Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, Shiloh, 4 and twins Knox and Viv (who turn 2 Monday), "are not asking," admits Jolie. "They're very aware that nothing's missing."

Jolie calls Pitt, her partner of five years, "of course the love of my life." She says they'll grow old together.

"We wouldn't have had six kids if we weren't absolutely sure of that," she asserts.

As for adding to their brood, "There's no plans at the moment for more," says Jolie. "But always talk about it. We're always open. We kind of joke about it, 'cause in the morning we're so tired. 'Cause there -- nobody spends the night. We wake up and we have breakfast.... And so, we always have this thing kind of first thing in the morning where we're really, really tired. And we always look at each other and wonder like, Are we ever gonna get sleep?' And then we joke about sleep.... But yet, we still love the idea of having more children."

Jolie says her and Brad "take turns" making breakfast.

"I think everybody prefers Dad's eggs and bacon. They always want pancakes. Knox is very into pancakes right now. And gets really upset if he can't have pancakes. You know, we just try to-- we try to corral them," she admits.

"We've had to put new gates up, because the twins are kind of going everywhere, while we were trying to make breakfast and get the other others out the door for camp. So, we've had to put like extra gates on the kitchen. And-- we have drawers in the kitchen full of toys," adds Jolie. "And we've got... stations kind of for somebody= getting ready. So, the twins have their own little section.... We pride ourselves on the fact that we got it. We got this... We got it. You get the juice, you get the thing. We're like bartenders. We're like... waiters."

Jolie says she's "better at disciplining the girls. And he's better at disciplining the boys... We made a plan early on that we believe that you can't be good cop / bad cop. That you have to back each other no matter what!'"

The actress says her kids made her fearless while shooting the movie's stunts.

"In some way, I suppose, or I wouldn't be able to do the film," she says. "I'm fine to get dirty and tough with the best of 'em, you know? Because I would believe in what I'm fighting for. And I'm not afraid. But I'm also just Mommy, and goofy Mommy."

But because of her children, "I would never do something that could kill me," Jolie says. "But there were things that were -- I could have broken my arm or broken my leg, or that kind of thing."

Jolie says she has some experience fighting as a kid. "I did punch," she says. "I think because I was so -- it was my first fight, you know? And you don't know what else to do. You figure you better do it right the first time or they're gonna come back at you!"

But she adds, "real fighting is so awkward and not cool at all."
