ANGELINA Jolie did not plan to have a big family until she met Brad Pitt.

The 36-year-old mother-of-six had already adopted oldest son Maddox, 10, before she got together with Brad in 2005, but insists that until then, she only wanted a couple of kids.

She said: "At first I was thinking of adopting two children, but I wasn't sure.

"I knew I didn't want to raise a large family on my own but when Brad came into my life and I came to know him, I discovered that he loved being a father and wanted to build a family with me. I didn't plan on having twins either!"

In addition to Maddox, the couple - who met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith while Brad, 48, was still married to Jennifer Aniston - also have adopted kids Pax, eight, and Zahara, seven, as well as biological daughter Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

And Angelina admits she falls deeper in love with the Moneyball actor every time she sees him with their children.

She told OK! magazine: "When we first met I appreciated how caring, sexy and how great a friend he was to me.

"But I also fell in love with the man who was a very loving father and how much he enjoys spending time with the children.

"When I see how much love is in Brad's eyes for the twins and for all our children, it's a very moving experience for me. When I see him with the children it makes me love him even more."
