Brad Pitt reportedly wants Angelina Jolie to feel ‘spoilt rotten’ on her birthday this Thursday. The Hollywood actress celebrates her landmark birthday on Thursday and her husband and brood are said to be preparing some special events for the day. It's been a hectic year for the couple so far, who have been filming their upcoming movie By the Sea with Angelina directing, so Brad is doing all he can to make his wife's birthday a memorable one.

‘They've both realised they need to devote more time to each other and are planning romantic weekends away,’ a source told British magazine Closer. ‘Brad has planned a string of surprises for Ange's big birthday on 4 June, including a trip to a private island, which he's hired out just for them. He's even bought an antique emerald ring, which he's engraved with the date they first met.’

The couple's kids - Zahara, Maddox, Pax, Knox, Vivienne and Shiloh - are also said to have got involved with the plans. Brad and Angelina are rarely away from their children so it comes as no surprise that the 51-year-old actor wants them to play a big part in their mother's birthday.

‘Brad's helped the kids each pick out special gifts for their mum and has made a memory book with photographs and letters and loved ones over the years. He wants her to feel spoilt rotten,’ the insider added with a smile. Angelina has been open about the struggles she's faced as of late. In March she revealed she'd had her ovaries removed, which followed a double mastectomy she had in 2013 after finding out she's a carrier of the faulty BRCA1 gene mutation, which could lead to breast and ovarian cancer.
