renowned actors After 11 years together and two years of marriage, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie called it quits in 2016, but they’ll always be parents to their six children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox. Maddox and Zahara were two of their children whom Angelina adopted prior to her relationship with Brad; he later adopted both of them as well. From 2006 to 2008, they welcomed four more children into their family.
We’ve been able to observe the family grow despite the fact that they don’t publicly post about their children (unlike other famous parents do) and the kids don’t have public social media profiles. Between their parents’ red carpet appearances, movie premieres, and their own college acceptances, Pitt and Jolie’s six children have quickly matured in front of our eyes.
Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt
Maddox, the oldest child of Brad and Angelina, was born on August 5, 2001, in Cambodia. When he was only 7 months old, in 2002, Angelina adopted him. Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina, who were still wed at the time, jointly issued a statement regarding the adoption. Soon later, the couple filed for divorce. When Maddox was 18, Angelina dropped him off at Yonsei University in South Korea to begin his collegiate career. “I’m leaving today; I’m dropping him off today. Maddox’s friends overheard Angelina say, “I’m trying not to weep.
Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt
Pax, the second-oldest Jolie-Pitt child, was born in Vietnam on November 29, 2003. He was three years old when the couple adopted him in March 2007.
Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt
Zahara is the third-oldest Jolie-Pitt child; she was born in Ethiopia on January 8, 2005. Angelina adopted her first kid July 2005, followed by Pitt in 2006. According to CNN, Zahara’s middle name, Marley, is in honour of Bob Marley. She is presently enrolled at Spelman College, which Jolie regards as “an honour” for one of her daughters to attend.
Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt
Shiloh (shown right), the first biological child of Angelina and Brad, was born on May 27, 2006. Shiloh was born in Namibia even though she had lived in the US since she was a young child.
Knox Léon Jolie-Pitt
Knox (shown far right), the youngest son of the former couple, was born on July 12, 2008. The youngest Jolie-Pitt child is he, along with his twin sister Vivienne. There are six Jolie-Pitt children that were raised in the United States but who were originally born in Nice, France.
Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt
The twin daughters of Brad and Angelina, Vivienne (shown far left) and Knox, were born on July 12, 2008. Even though she might not have been old enough to recall it, Vivienne and her mother were both cast in “Maleficent” to play baby Aurora and toddler Aurora, respectively. All of the other children who auditioned for the role sobbed when they saw Angelina dressed as Maleficent, but Vivienne seemed unfazed by her mother’s appearance at all.
