While it didn’t work out between exes Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, they can certainly thank each other for their wonderful family. Throughout their relationship in the 2000s, the Maleficent actress and the Ad Astra star became the proud parents of their six kids, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne.
Unfortunately, Angelina and her handsome husband called it quits in 2016 — just two years after they tied the knot in 2014. Nowadays, the former pair are doing their best to amicably coparent their children while navigating their lives as single parents.
In June 2020, the Mr. and Mrs. Smith actress candidly spoke about her divorce to Vogue. Angelina insisted she made the “right decision” to divorce from the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star for the “well-being of [her] family.”
“I continue to focus on their healing,” she shared with the outlet. “Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds.”
As the mom of one of Hollywood’s most famous broods, Angelina has always been open and honest with her kids about growing up in the spotlight. However, the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider alum revealed her family couldn’t actually care less about their superstar status.
“I’ve wanted them to be exposed to it all. It’s a part of their life,” she told Extra in September 2019. “But it’s not important to them and a center of their lives in a way that’s unhealthy. It’s all fun.”
Being juggling an iconic acting career and life as a single mom can be difficult, there’s no denying Angelina makes it look effortless. The Academy Award winner’s father, Jon Voight, even praised his highly accomplished daughter for being extremely dedicated to her kids.
“Well, she’s a good mom I’ll tell you that,” he once gushed to Closer Weekly. “She is very loving to the kids and very much there with them, always there with them although she has a busy life. She doesn’t miss any opportunity to inquire into their lives and help them every step of the way. So I’m very proud of her.”
