Oscar-winner Jon Voight recently reunited with his daughter Angelina Jolie after years of estrangement, and now he's enjoying every moment of quality time he spends with his six grandchildren.

He told Hollyscoop.com: "Every stage in your life has delights, thank God. And also dramas. Oh my gosh being a grandfather is the most wonderful thing, it really is. I hope to see them soon."

Jon and Angelina reconciled in February, with Jon joining the family in Venice, Italy. He says it was a joint decision to put their problems behind them.

When asked who started the proceedings, Jon replied: "We did together."

Jon has previously spoken of his delight at being reunited with Angelina, saying it was "wonderful."

Speaking on his return from Italy, Jon said: "It was good. We spent quality time together. I don't want to talk about it too much but it was wonderful."

The 71-year-old star also praised Angelina's partner Brad Pitt, describing him as "terrific."

The actress has been at war with her dad for years after he accused her of having "mental problems" shortly after her split from ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton in 2002.

The screen veteran has previously spoken about how he hoped to reconcile with his daughter on a permanent basis, saying: "We're in touch, but not regularly. We love each other and that's the most important thing."
