Brad Pitt is ''pushing'' one of his children to become an architect.

The 'Moneyball' actor - who raises six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with actress partner Angelina Jolie - likes to encourage his children to do what they want, but is hoping one of his kids will grow up to share his passion for building design.

He said on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show': ''I think I got one [into architecture]. Yeah, I'm pushing them that way. When you see them drawing crayon houses, 'That's a beautiful house, honey.' Just keep pushing them.''

Brad himself is working in New Orleans to help the Lower Ninth Ward of the city with his Make It Right foundation, following the devastating Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

However, he does not think he ''deserves'' as much credit as he gets for his work on the project.

He added: ''I'm getting far too much credit for this. This took a lot of very smart people coming in and attacking the situation. It took the families determined to come back and their resilience and they're defining what this thing was going to be. I get far too much credit for bringing some really smart people together.''
