New dad Brad Pitt is getting serious about his fatherly duties after taking charge of a Baby Sherpa Diaper Backpack.

Bosses at the Winnipeg Diaper Bag firm in Canada decided to give the actor one of their top-of-the-line models as a thank you for filming new movie THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD nearby.

And the bag arrived just as Pitt was given the OK to proceed in his bid to add Pitt to the names of Angelina Jolie's adopted kids, MADDOX and Zahara Marley, earlier this week (beg16JAN06).

HEATHER CAMPBELL-DEWAR, the company's CEO, says, "It is evident that Mr Pitt and his family are very active and travel extensively. This is exactly the reason that I designed the Baby Sherpa and founded the company."
