Could Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie be any more sickeningly perfect?

Not only are they both absolutely stunning and award-winning actors, apparently they are also wonderful parents.

Well, that is according to Jolie herself.

Speaking to America's People magazine, the 31-year-old Tomb Raider actress said that their three children, Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh are "good kids" who are "smart", "funny" and "charming".

"I am the disciplinarian," she said. "Brad can be, but if Z doesn't get the bottle from me, she'll very quickly run to Daddy."

It seems that their parenting methods are working, as Jolie said: "Somebody said to us recently that they were happy kids, and we talked about how much that meant to us to hear. And they're good kids. God knows how we managed to do that  but they're good kids."

On who rules the Brangelina roost, she added: "I bet if you asked Brad, he'd say Zahara. Mad is very smart, but he's got a certain sense of calm.

"Zahara is possibly the funniest person I've ever met in my life. So dramatic and creative and loud and charming. She's definitely the biggest personality in the house."

Things look set to be even happier in their household as it was announced today that Brad has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in Babel and there are whispers that he could be heading for an Oscar nomination.
