Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: Proud Parents of Six Incredible Children

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may no longer be together, but their love for their six incredible children remains strong. Over the years, Jolie and Pitt have created a beautiful, multicultural family that continues to grow and thrive.

In 2002, Jolie took a major step in her life by becoming a mother for the first time. She adopted Maddox Chivan, who is now 21 years old, from an orphanage in Cambodia. Three years later, she welcomed Zahara Marley, who was born in Ethiopia, into their loving home.

Not long after, Pitt also made the decision to adopt Jolie’s first two children, solidifying their commitment to each other and their growing family.

In 2006, Jolie and Pitt experienced the joy of bringing their own biological child into the world. Shiloh Nouvel, now 17 years old, became the beloved centerpiece of their family.

Their family continued to expand in 2007 when they adopted Pax Thien, a 19-year-old boy from Vietnam. And just when they thought their family was complete, Jolie gave birth to twins Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline in 2008, adding even more love and joy to their household.

Jolie has always been open about the positive impact that having a large, multicultural family has had on their children. “They’re pretty great people, and because there are so many of them, I think they’ve had a very significant effect on each other,” she shared in an interview with PEOPLE. “It’s not like I’m the head of anything. I’m very honest and human with my kids.”

Despite their separation as a couple, Jolie and Pitt continue to prioritize their children’s well-being and ensure that they grow up surrounded by love and support.

Having such a diverse family has undoubtedly enriched the lives of their children, giving them a broader perspective and understanding of the world. Their unique upbringing will undoubtedly shape them into compassionate, empathetic individuals.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may no longer be together, but their love and dedication as parents continue to shine through their incredible children.
