Jon Voight can't stop talking about how happy he is regarding his reunion with his estranged daughter, Angelina Jolie.
"It was just wonderful to spend time with Angelina and Brad and the children," Voight, 71, told RadarOnline.com.
The father and daughter were snapped enjoying a boat ride down the Grand Canal in Venice on Sunday, along with Pitt and their six children. The reunion came after years of estrangement that began in 2002 when Voight publicly criticized his daughter for having "serious mental problems."
Jolie retaliated by legally removing Voight from her name, as well as cutting him out her life.
All week, celeb watchers have wondered how the long and icy wedge between the famous father and daughter melted away. Voight said that the healing has a slow and careful process.
"Angie and I have been in contact on the phone and by email for some time now," Voight said. "We've been working towards a full reconciliation for a while. Angie had to feel it was the right time to bring me into the lives of her and the kids and after some work she decided the moment had arrived."
Now, Voight just wants to bask in the afterglow of the reunion.
"I've been waiting so long to hug my grandchildren and it was amazing," he gushed. "They are the most beautiful, loving kids you could imagine and I'm not just saying that because I'm their grandfather, they really are something special."
The veteran actor also opened up to Us Weekly, telling the mag that his trip was "lovely" and marveling at the similarities between Jolie as a baby and the actress' 3-year-old biological daughter, Shiloh.
"I have baby pictures that are very resembling of Shiloh," he said. "I don't know about all the resemblances, but obviously there are some because of the genes."
He expressed fatherly pride about his daughter, while squashing rumors of trouble between Jolie, 34, and partner Brad Pitt, 46.
"Angelina and Brad are so happy together and they are the most amazing, loving parents I've ever seen," he told Radar. "It truly moved me to see how Angie is as a mom, I am so proud of her - she has so much love to give and to share with the children and with Brad."
As for future plans to see his daughter and grandchildren again, Voight said he remains optimistic of another visit.
"I hope I get to see them again soon," he said. "I want to spend as much time with them as possible."

Is it me or does this guy talk to the media about her whenever possible for his own gain?
That's what got him in trouble the first time.
He should just keep himself happy and shut up. _________________ www.myspace.com/therealashleydionne
