When we talk about the most iconic couples of Hollywood, we have to mention Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Even though they have been separated for years now, they were one of the most beloved power-couples of the industry. Just like their parents, Angelina and Brad Pitt’s children have also remained in the eyes of the media ever since the beginning. Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston until 2005.
Brad and Jolie met on the sets of Mr. And Mrs. Smith in 2003. They developed feelings for each other and the media was all over them. Speculations began and finally in 2005, Aniston filed for divorce from Pitt. While Jolie and Brad were already dating, they confirmed they were expecting their first child in 2006.
Brad Pitt’s Children – Chronologically
Though Angelina became a biological mother in 2006, she was already a mother since 2001. Jolie adopted her first son in 2002. Rath Vibol was born in Battambang, Cambodia, and was adopted by Angelina in March 2002. She re-named him as Maddox Chivan. Though she announced the adoption news along with her then-husband Billy Bob Thornton, she officially adopted Maddox as a single parent.
Angelina adopted her second child, a beautiful Ethiopian baby girl in 2005, and named her Zahara. She was just six months old when Angelina adopted her and although she was already dating Brad Pitt by then, she adopted Zahara as a single parent. In 2006, Brad Pitt co-adopted Zahara and Maddox. Soon afterward, Brad and Jolie announced that they are expecting their first biological child.
Shiloh Nouvel was born in May 2006 in Nimbia. In 2007, Angelina and Brad adopted their fourth child, a beautiful Vietnamese boy. Pax Thien was 3 when he was adopted from a Vietnamese orphanage. In 2008, during the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, Angelina announced in an interview that she is expecting twins. The twins, Knox Leon, a beautiful baby boy, and Vivienne Marcheline, a gorgeous baby girl were born in July 2008. Thus, the six beautiful kids complete the perfect family portrait and also Angelina and Brad’s world!
Angelina & Brad Pitt’s Children at Their Wedding
The couple married in 2014. Maddox and Pax looked adorable while they walked them down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne were the undoubtedly the most beautiful flower girls there can ever be and Shiloh and Knox were, well you guessed it right, the ring bearers! Now, who will not fall in love with this perfect family? Angelina has tattooed the geographical coordinates on her upper arm, representing the birthplaces of all her children. In 2016 however, Angelina filed for a divorce with Brad Pitt citing irreconcilable differences as the reason.
Angelina & Brad Pitt’s Children After Divorce
The couple mutually reached a custody agreement, where Angelina has the primary custody of their children and Brad gets visitation time. Angelina and Brad Pitt’s children, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox are shuttling between both their parents during the quarantine as both Angelina and Brad live nearby. Maddox however is 18, and hence can decide where he wants to live on his own. Due to his apparently frosty relationship with Pitt, Maddox lives with his mother Jolie.
The kids’ lives have changed a lot because of the ongoing pandemic. Maddox returned from his University in South Korea and is currently at home. The kids are enjoying virtual classes and home tuition. In a recent interview, Angelina said that the couple separated for the well-being of their kids. The news published by the media houses can sometimes become upsetting for Angelina and Brad Pitt’s children but Jolie likes to believe that they are six strong individuals who know their truth better than anyone. All we can say is, that the 6 kids have the most amazing parents and totally unconventional lives!
