Amid her ongoing divorce with Brad Pitt, Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is finally ironing out the differences with her father Jon Voight.

Just days after the two spent time together at a Beverly Hills restaurant with some of the Jolie-Pitt brood, the 78-year-old actor sent his formerly estranged daughter heartfelt love and wishes on the occasion of Mother's Day.

"Give my daughter all the love in the world because she's a wonderful mom to her kids," Voight told the paparazzi while leaving the Mastro's Steakhouse in Beverly Hills on Saturday, 13 May.

When he was further asked about his relationship with the 41-year-old actress and more family gatherings with Jolie and her children, the academy award winning actor seemed hopeful. "Yeah, they're my family. That's my baby," Voight gushed to TMZ.

Earlier, the Maleficent actress and her father were spotted leaving a sushi restaurant in Beverly Hills after a family dinner date with four of Jolie's children, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

A source told People magazine, "The kids had gifts for their granddad. Angie hugged her dad. They were all very happy."

Although Jolie was estranged from her father for years until their eventual reconciliation in 2010 – when the actress invited Voight to meet her family in Venice – the Ray Donovan star has been supporting his daughter throughout her difficult past few months.

The mother-of-six filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016, ending their 12-year relationship.

At the time, Voight had revealed that he is "rooting" for estranged couple to work out their differences. "I'm rooting for them. I don't want this thing to dissolve. I'm rooting for the kids. My heart is with everybody, and my daughter, certainly, and the children," he told Us Weekly.

Meanwhile, Pitt too gave an update on the aftermath of his split revealing that he largely blame himself for the demise of his marriage.

"(It was) self-inflicted... If you love someone, set them free. Now I know what it means, by feeling it," the actor told GQ.
