Brad Pitt’s Dad Babysits Knox as Brad, Angelina, Older Kids Travel


Apparently there's room for a few more guests at the $6.8 million Jolie-Pitt palazzo in Venice.

Introducing…Grandpa Pitt! (See more photos!)

William and Jane Pitt touched down in Venice, Italy last week to visit with their son Brad, his love Angelina Jolie and their six kids.

Over the weekend, however, Pitt's parents were apparently on babysitting duty: as attested by photos at Radaronline, Jolie and Pitt took Shiloh, 3, Maddox, 8, Zahara, 4, and Pax, 6, for a quick trip to the south of France while twins Vivienne and Knox, 20 months, stayed behind.

On Sunday, William and Knox headed out onto one of the clan's favorite spots in the palace: the scenic balcony overlooking Venice's Grand Canal.

Knox wore a black hoodie and clutched a blankie as he showed his grandfather the sites.

In February, Jolie's father, actor Jon Voight, also visited with the family in the ancient Italian city.  Voight, 71 and Jolie, 34, had recently reconciled after a 7-year rift.

"It's nice to have something that's positive!" Voight, 71, told of getting back together with his once-estranged daughter. He says their boat ride down the ancient city's Grand Canal was "lovely…the weather wasn't so bad for the journey. It's a very beautiful trip. A lot of fun."

Last Friday, Knox and his famous mom Jolie made a comical blunder while enjoying the view: he dropped his stuffed toy bunny, which plunged into the water below.
