So sweet! Angelina Jolie paid a visit to Cleveland, Ohio, and brought her oldest child, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, along for the ride. It was a fun-filled trip for the mother-son duo considering they were spotted celebrating Maddox’s 18th birthday on Monday, August 5!
While paying a visit to her good friend Loung Ung, Angelina, 44, enjoyed some quality time with her firstborn. For his birthday celebration, the Maleficent actress and her bestselling author pal brought Maddox and other friends to one of Cleveland’s most famous hotspots, the Market Garden Brewery, for lunch. Sadly, dad Brad Pitt was noticeably absent.
Following their scrumptious meal at the brewery — which is actually owned by Loung’s husband, Mark Premier — Ang and Maddox also made a stop at the nearby Ohio City Farm. The large contiguous urban farm is a place where The Refugee Response Program provides jobs and training in agriculture to refugees living in the Cleveland area. They then visited the Cleveland Museum of Art. What a fun day!
Loung, a human-rights activist and lecturer, took to Facebook to share sweet pics from her outing with Angelina and the birthday boy. Along with two photos, Loung also shared a sweet message in honor of Maddox’s special milestone.
“Angelina and Maddox visited me in Cleveland this past week to toast Maddox’s upcoming 18th birthday!” Loung gushed in the caption. “We started with lunch at Market Garden Brewpub and a visit to Ohio City Farm/The Refugee Response Program and Cleveland Museum of Art! I met Maddox when he was just a year old and today he turns eighteen and going off to college! So proud! Happy Birthday, Maddox!”
The exciting birthday trip comes around the same time it was revealed that Maddox will officially be headed to South Korea to study biochemistry at Yonsei University. “He got accepted to other universities but chose Yonsei,” an insider recently told People. “He has been studying [the] Korean language. He has lessons multiple times a week to prepare.”
The source also dished that Ang “will be dropping him off” very soon as classes begin this month. Although the brunette beauty — who is also the mom to Pax Jolie-Pitt, 15, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 14, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt — “will miss seeing him as much” when Maddox leaves, Ang is “very proud” of her eldest son.
We can’t wait to heart all about Maddox’s future milestone accomplishments!
