Parenting? It's a walk in the park: Angelina Jolie takes four of her six children for a day out while father Brad is at hard at work

By Marcus Barnes

They're probably quite a handful so you have to give Angelina Jolie some brownie points for managing to keep a handle on her brood of children.

The Hollywood actress, 37, took four of her six offspring to a park in Glasgow for some play time while their father Brad Pitt continued work on his new movie World War Z.

Angelina Jolie was accompanied by a female who appeared to be a nanny as well as a male associate likely to be a bodyguard.

The actress took Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and twins Vivien and Knox, three, for a spot of fun and games in the grassy area - perhaps because they grew a little restless while at their hotel.

Notably absent from the pictures are Pax and Maddox, the elder boys, who may well have opted out of the day trip to spend time playing computer games or something a little more mature.

Angelina's outfit was par for the course for the actress, wearing her much favoured colour black from top to toe.

Her outfit consisted of a black sweater, black jeans and black knee-high Wellington style boots.

Assistance: While Angelina is no doubt a capable mother, with six children to care for it's unsurprising that she has a nanny to help out

Her female companion wore a black and white striped pullover with blue jeans and black UGG boots.

Meanwhile the children were suitably dressed for the lukewarm temperatures in the Scottish city, where it is currently 17 degrees centigrade.

Zahara was dressed in a black duffle coat with a fur-lined hood - underneath she had a navy top, black jeans and colourful, patterned wellies.

Shiloh wore a red zip up fleece with a striped blue over a white top, khaki coloured trousers and traditional green wellies.

Meanwhile the twins Know and Vivien were wrapped up in their own individual outfits - Vivien in a pink top, with black jeans and matching pink boots.

Knox on the other hand had a duffle coat on similar to Zahara's with beige bottoms and green boots covered with a colourful pattern.

The family are in Scotland where father Brad Pitt is shooting scenes for his latest movie project World War Z.

And the film has become a big event in Glasgow with whole districts being shut off while the crew transform the Scottish city into Philadelphia.

Today a whole area of the city was shut down as the action scenes began to take shape.

A stunt involving a dustbin truck smashing through rows of traffic was shot in the centre of Glasgow, shutting down the whole road were the scene took place.

Yesterday Brad, 47, was seen taking a break from filming accompanied by the pretty brunette who is likely to be a set manager.

Of course, his partner Angelina Jolie will have little to worry about - the dynamic between the actor and his on-set companion is nothing more than a professional working relationship.

A threat?: How will Angelina Jolie react to Brad's close working relationship with the pretty lady?

However her beauty could well cause a slight bit of jealousy on Angelina's part, which is only natural for any man or woman whose partner works closely with an attractive member of the opposite sex.

Glasgow is the latest city to undergo an amazing transformation thanks to the new zombie thriller.

Film staff have so far managed to transform Valletta, in Malta, and Falmouth, in Cornwall, into a world dealing with the aftermath of a global zombie war for the same film.

And this week these post-apocalyptic scenes have come to Glasgow, as Brad Pitt and his crew bring the living dead to the Scottish city.

And Brad, 47, was right in the thick of it all as he chatted to his crew and watched as the streets were turned into the U.S. city.

Transformed: Glasgow has undergone a complete makeover to look like Philadelphia where there movie is set

Cochrane Street has been renamed John F Kennedy Boulevard and American road signs and street names were put up while yellow taxi cabs and white police cars lined the streets as Philadelphia came to life.

Glasgow was chosen to double as the Pennsylvanian city because of the huge similarities between them including the architecture, wide roads and grid layout of the cities.

Local people have been recruited as zombie extras and Glasgow City Council said the production will involve almost 1,200 people and the impact on local economy is expected to be more than £2 million.
