    Brad and Angelina have reportedly set a co-parenting schedule, enabling their children to spend their summer across two cities, New Mexico where Ange is filming her new movie and LA where Brad lives.

    The source continued: ‘It’s a very healthy situation, and Brad is grateful that all of the animosity is in the past.’
