Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Share 6 Beautiful Children! Meet the Former Hollywood Couple’s Family

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s high-profile romance didn’t work out, but they are both making an effort to be on good terms for the sake of their kids. 

Throughout their relationship in the 2000s, the Maleficent actress and the Ad Astra star became the proud parents of six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh as well as twins Knox and Vivienne.

Angelina and Brad called it quits in 2016 — just two years after they tied the knot in 2014. Nowadays, the exes are doing their best to amicably coparent while navigating their separate lives as single parents. 

The humanitarian purchased the stunning former estate of Cecil B. DeMille in 2017 and recently explained her reason for buying the Los Angeles-based mansion. “I wanted it to be close to their dad, who is only five minutes away,” Angelina shared in an interview for the March 2021 cover of British Vogue, before reflecting on the valuable life lessons she learned post-split. “The past few years have been pretty hard. I’ve been focusing on healing our family,” she added. “It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body.”

Even though the breakup was difficult for all of them, the Mr. and Mrs. Smith actress previously expressed how she made the “right decision” to split from the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star for the “well-being of [her] family” in a June 2020 interview.

“I continue to focus on their healing,” she shared with Vogue at the time. “Some have taken advantage of my silence … but I remind the [kids] 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.”

Although juggling an iconic acting career and life as a single mom can be a lot of work, 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 previously 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.”
