Almost a year into his relationship with girlfriend Ines de Ramon, Hollywood icon Brad Pitt remains mindful of the steps he takes next. As the one-year mark approaches, it seems the actor is exercising caution, particularly when it comes to involving his children.

Brad Pitt, who charmed audiences in films like "Bullet Train," and the striking 30-year-old de Ramon first sparked romantic rumors in November 2022. The whispers began after the duo was seen enjoying a Bono concert in Los Angeles. Interestingly, this rendezvous happened just a few months after de Ramon parted ways with Paul Wesley.

Sources close to the actor disclosed to Us Weekly that Pitt has refrained from introducing any of his six children to de Ramon. One insider shed light on the matter, noting, "Brad genuinely adores Ines. Yet, he is keen on ensuring the longevity of their relationship before making such a pivotal move."

While the hesitation might seem surprising to many, given the couple's evident chemistry, the insider assures that the duo is thriving and enjoying each other's company. "Throughout the years, Brad has been linked with several women, but none have had the privilege of meeting his children. He's content with the pace at which things are progressing with Ines and believes in letting everything take its natural course," added the source.

Brad Pitt's brood includes Maddox, 21, Pax, 19, Zahara, 18, Shiloh, 17, and the 14-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox, whom he shares with his former spouse Angelina Jolie. The A-list couple's relationship came to an end in 2016, after a commendable 12 years together. The couple, however, only received their single status officially three years post their split.

The aftermath of their divorce was filled with tumultuous events. Shortly after parting ways, Brad faced child abuse allegations spurred by an alleged incident involving Maddox on a flight. Fortunately for the actor, he was later exonerated from these charges. By September's end, both Jolie and Pitt, prioritizing their children's wellbeing, agreed upon a temporary custody setup. Both also showed commitment to individual counseling. A subsequent decision by a judge in October granted Jolie physical custody of their children, as reported by Entertainment Tonight.
