How the Family of Angelina and Brad Has Changed and Evolved Over the Past 20 Years
Angelina and Brad have astonished the world with their passionate love story and their commitment to raising their beautiful children in the most private and honest possible manner. Despite their divorce, they are loving parents who would go to any length to protect their children Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox. Even though it may seem like only yesterday that they built their expanded family, their children have grown up and are all pursuing their own dreams.
1. Maddox Chivan
Maddox was adopted by Angelina Jolie in 2002 in Cambodia at the age of 7 months. He is the first out of 3 of Jolie’s adopted kids. Today, Maddox is a handsome guy who has already produced a movie called First They Killed My Father together with his famous mother. The movie was nominated for 9 awards and won 3 of them. Maddox also works as an actor.
2. Pax Thien
Jolie adopted 3-year-old Pax in 2007 from an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The next year, Pitt adopted the boy as well. Today, he’s 16 years old, he’s interested in photography and also played a minor role in Maleficent.
3. Zahara Marley
Born in Ethiopia, Zahara was adopted by actress Angelina Jolie in 2005. She was 6 months old at the time. Brad Pitt adopted Zahara the next year. Now Zahara is 16 years old and she can already boast a couple of movie credits. Zahara herself dreams of becoming a model.
4. Shiloh Nouvel
Shiloh was the first biological child of the actor’s Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. In order to welcome their first biological child, Jolie and Pitt traveled to Namibia, where Jolie gave birth to her daughter in a city named Swakopmund. Today, Shiloh is 14 years old and is already considered an LGBTQ+ idol. Despite her short haircut and tomboy style, many people say that she looks very much like her mother.
5. Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline
In 2008, Jolie gave birth to twins — a son, Knox, and a daughter, Vivienne — in a seaside hospital in Nice, France. Their last twins Knox and Vivienne were conceived through in vitro fertilization since the couple were fed up with waiting and wanted to expand their family. They’re now 11 years old and they have some acting credits, just like their siblings.
