London: Actor Brad Pitt says his family is the most important thing in life and will always be his priority.

The actor, who raises six children Maddox, 10, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh 5 and three-year-old twins -- Knox and Vivienne -- with partner Angelina Jolie, admits he makes sure that he spends plenty of time with them, according to reports.

“We're a normal family, a mother and a father, and the kids get unruly! The kids are fantastic and say the funniest things I've ever heard,” he said.

“But the most important thing for us is to make sure we carve out time for them, that we get group time and one-on-one time because it's our responsibility to show them around and help shape them. So I guess the only thing I can say is that it's fatherhood first, family first, and then I slip in the work,” he added.
