The “Fury” star gushed about his six kids to “Psychologies” magazine, and Daily Mail shared the sweet excerpts.

"You learn to value the basic beauty of family, of watching your children grow and evolve," Pitt said of fatherhood. "It's the most beautiful thing you can experience. I feel like the richest man alive since I've become a father."

The father of six continued, "Being a father has changed me on so many levels and made me more generous and alive. I see my children as an essential part of my life, and it means so much to be able to educate them and help them make their way in the world as they grow up. I love being a father and all the responsibilities that entails."

Pitt, who married longtime love Angelina Jolie in August, says parenting comes with a lot of responsibility.

"I worry about them all the time," he said. "That's the emotional bond and responsibility that sweeps over you when you have a family to look after. I care about them more than I care about myself, which I think is the real definition of love. You see past yourself and become more generous and giving, and wanting only the best for your family."

Brad and Angelina, who are currently filming "By the Sea" in Malta, are mom and dad to Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6.

Pitt's World War II film "Fury" opens nationwide on Oct. 17.
