In the midst of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s custody battle over their six children, fans are becoming increasingly interested in the lives of their offspring. This celebrity couple’s children – Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox – have recently been in the public eye, accompanying their mother to various movie premieres and events. For those who are unfamiliar with the family dynamic, let’s take a closer look at Jolie’s three daughters: Zahara, Shiloh, and Vivienne.
Angelina Jolie welcomed Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt into her family through adoption from Ethiopia when she was only six months old in the year 2005. Zahara is the second oldest child of the actress after Maddox, who was born in Cambodia in 2001. Being just 16 years old now, Zahara has been a source of inspiration for her parents’ charitable work like The Jolie-Pitt Foundation’s initiatives such as the Zahara Program and the Zahara Children’s Center. These programs aim to provide treatment for drug-resistant tuberculosis and further research on the disease in Ethiopia. Moreover, Zahara is also following in her parents’ footsteps by making her acting debut alongside her mother in the film Kung Fu Panda 3, where she lent her voice to the character of Meng Meng.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the first biological child of Brad and Angelina, was born in Swakopmund, Namibia, and currently holds dual citizenship in both the United States and her birth country. In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair, Angelina described her then-5-year-old daughter as being incredibly funny and one of the most playful people around. She went on to say that Shiloh’s goofy and chatty personality were early indications of her potential as a performer.
Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, the youngest daughter of Brad and Angelina, is only 13 years old and shares a twin brother named Knox. Following in the footsteps of her siblings, Vivienne has acted alongside her mother in movies, including her role as a young Princess Aurora in Maleficent. In a BBC Radio 4 interview in 2016, Jolie shared that all six of her children were interested in learning new languages. Shiloh is learning Khmer, Pax is focusing on Vietnamese, Mad is taking German and Russian, Zahara is speaking French, Vivienne is keen to learn Arabic, and Knox is learning sign language.
