Brad Pitt's future is looking bright!
The 53-year-old actor stepped out in Santa Monica, California, on Wednesday, appearing to be in high spirits amid reports that he's seeing his six children on a more regular basis.
The Allied star sported an all-black ensemble for his midday outing, complete with a cozy black scarf and cool shades.
Pitt's positive outlook seems to be a result of spending more time with his kids, a source tells People.
The actor initially agreed to weekly supervised visits with his and Angelina Jolie's six kids -- Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8 -- after the couple's split. However, People's source says that things have since cooled down and Pitt "can spend more time with them."
On Jan. 9, Pitt and Jolie released a joint statement revealing that they were working with a private judge on their divorce case, and stated that they were "committed to act as a united front" moving forward.
"He seems much happier," People's source continued. "He has missed his kids terribly. The kids are his whole world. It's all he cares about."
"Brad is willing to work with Angie so they can have peace for the kids," the source stated. "What it ultimately comes down to is that he just wants to be with the kids."
