Yes, folks, you read that correctly! After nine years and six kids together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally tied the knot! The big event happened on Saturday, August 23, 2014. Proving once again that they can keep things private when the really need/want to, the news didn’t break until five days later, when their rep released the following statement: “On Saturday, Aug. 23, in the presence of family and friends, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were married in a small chapel in Chateau Miraval in France. It was a non-denominational civil ceremony. It was very much a family affair.” The rep also stated that all six Jolie-Pitt kids took part in the wedding: Maddox and Pax walked Angie down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne were flower girls, and Shiloh and Knox were ring bearers. Such big news as this has to be celebrated, of course, and what better way than a timeline of how the Jolie-Pitt family has grown and evolved?! See it below the cut!
As hard as it is to believe, Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt is now twelve years old! And in just over a decade, Angelina and Brad’s eldest has done something quite remarkable: he laid down the foundation for what would become the Jolie-Pitt family and has influenced several parts of it’s evolution. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Yes, folks, you read that correctly. After seven years and six kids together, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have decided to make it official! Brad’s manager, Cynthia Pett-Dante, confirmed the happy news this past Friday, April 13th…proving that Friday the 13th isn’t always an unlucky day! She said that “It’s a promise for the future” and that “No date has been set yet”. In honor of this most joyus news, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at the many things that led Angie and Brad to this point. The retrospective will kick off below the cut.

Remember when we saw these two babies making their way through a Tokyo, Japan airport (with their parents and siblings in tow)?:
Well, two plus years later (the original airport pictures were taken in early January of 2009) those same babies were seen making their way through a Tokyo airport once again (and again with their parents and siblings in two). Only they definitely aren’t babies any more:
Time sure goes by fast, doesn’t it?! Hard to believe that those six-month-old babies have now grown up into a big three-year-old boy and girl! It’s also hard to believe that, in the first airport photos, Shi was almost the same age that her little brother and sister are now (she was just four months away from celebrating her third birthday!). And what about that proud young man standing next to Knox and in front Brad? Maddox Jolie-Pitt certainly isn’t a little boy any longer! More pictures under the cut.
As hard as it is to believe, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt is five years old today! In honor of the occasion, I have made a video of pictures of her and Brad through the years. Enjoy! 🙂
It’s that time of year again! Time for the Cannes Film Festival, that is. And after taking a year off, Angie and Brad are both back at the festival in full-force! Angie is doing promotion for Kung Fu Panda 2 this week, and Brad will do promotion for Tree of Life next week. Angie has already done some interviews, and as always, she was asked about the kids. First things first, she was asked about that 7th coordinate tattoo that we’ve all been curious about. She confirmed that, as many of us had already suspected, it’s the coordinates of Brad’s birthplace, Shawnee Oklahoma. The other buring question we’ve all had about the tattoo, of course, is whether Brad’s coordinates on Angie’s arm mean they’re done having kids.
Well, the answer seems to be not neccesarily! When asked about expanding the family, Angie said that it’s “not a possibility at this time”. So it sounds like Angie and Brad are still open to more kids, just not at this point in time. Angie also, of course, spoke at length about Kung Fu Panda 2, and said that Zahara and Shiloh in particular (she said “my girls”, but considering that she just said in another recent interview that she doesn’t know what exactly the twins think about KFP2 and that they are too young to “get it”, it’s a pretty safe bet that she was referring just to the two older girls.) really like her character Tigress, because she’s a “tough girl”.
Zee and Shi have Tigress dolls (and it sounds like they’ve had them for quite awhile, as Angie mentioned that the kids had Tigress dolls during the promo rounds of the first KFP. She also said that they called them “mom dolls” and that there was one big one that they kept putting diapers on!) among other KFP stuff. While the girls like Tigress, all four older Jolie-Pitt children like Po, and the oldest three relate to Po because he was adopted, just as they were. Angie said that the kids didn’t have any issues with the adoption aspect of the film, because adoption is something that’s talked about very openly in their home and words like “birth parents” and “orphanage” are “happy” words at their house.
Another thing Angie was asked is whether any of the kids are showing signs of wanting to be actors. She said no, and that she hopes they become writers or adventurers instead….but that she’ll probably end up with six actors! She also shared that she tries to tell them stories every night before bed. Angie may be one of the most famous and watched women in the world, but when it comes right down to it, she’s really not that different from a “regular” mom. AWWWWWWW!
The tabloids have been pouncing all over it. Countless blogs have written articles about it. And everyone and their brother seems to have something to say about it. I’m talking, of course, about Shiloh Jolie-Pitt’s tomboy style. Unfourtnately, most of what’s been said is negative. A lot of people are saying that it’s wrong for Shiloh to be allowed to dress like a boy, and some people have even gone so far as to claim that Shiloh is actually being FORCED to dress like a boy. Of course, those same people also think it’s terrible that she now has short hair, and again, some have even gone so far as to claim that the haircut, like the tomboy clothes, was forced on her.
However, there is one person out there who has very recently spoken out about Shi’s style…..and doesn’t see a single thing wrong with: Shiloh’s mother, Angelina Jolie. Lately, as we all know, Angie has been doing the press rounds to promote her latest film, Salt. Of course, one of the things that the interviewers have asked her about is Shiloh’s style. True to the “open-book style”, as I call it, that she exhibits during most interviews, Angie has not been at all shy about responding to those questions, and has explained her four-year-old daughter’s style by saying “It’s not my choice. I have a very strong willed 4-year-old girl who tells me what she wants to wear and I let her be who she is.”
As for Shiloh’s short hair, it turns out that, just like with the clothes she wears, getting her hair cut was her choice. “”Shiloh cried and said, ‘Please cut my hair off, I don’t want to have long hair,” Angie told interviewers. She then explained “I’m not going to leave it long because somebody thinks I should. I want to do what’s in her heart and what’s in her heart is to dress like that. I think it’s beautiful.”
Well, you know what I think is even more beautiful than the style choices Shi makes? That she has a mother who allows her to make those decisions, allows her to be herself, and isn’t about to force her to be someone she’s not. But what’s most beautiful of all is that Shiloh has a mother who thinks that the way she expresses herself is beautiful. Now excuse me while I go melt into a puddle!
