On Wednesday, US Weekly reported that the 42-year-old actress is second-guessing the divorce and willing to take back the Allied star if he "showed he's committed to raising a family."

However, a source tells ET that, "There’s a pause in the [divorce] process because they both made children the priority, but nothing significant has changed in their relationship."

The source adds that there is no animosity between Pitt and Jolie right now, noting that "both have demonstrated great civility recently for their kids."

As for a reconciliation?

“There isn’t one in the works,” the source says, pointing out that the reason it's taking so long to finalize the divorce is because "these things always take a long time, and right now their main focus is on their family and the kids."

Last month, Jolie spoke out about her separation, children and life as a single mom in an intimate interview with Vanity Fair. The tell-all "surprised" many of the former couple's family and friends as Pitt's main concern has always been to protect their six children -- Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – from the spotlight, refusing to speak publicly about them.

"It's surprising that Angelina would use the children to help herself in the story, especially after years where both were dedicated to protecting their privacy," a family friend told ET in July.

Pitt gave his own tell-all to GQ back in May, where he opened up about his personal struggles, yet never discussed his children.

"Both parents care a lot about their kids and being supportive of their best interests," a source told ET following the release of Jolie's VF piece. "That's all that matters. Hopefully people can focus on that."

As of now, both stars are focused on their careers and the well-being of their kids. For more on their post-split interviews, watch the video below.
