It’s been nearly three years since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt kissed their relationship goodbye after filing for divorce in 2016. Since then, the Maleficent actress hasn’t just been adjusting to life as a single mom-of-six — she is embracing it!
“Her kids are her life,” a source close to the 43-year-old dished to Us Weekly in the magazine’s latest issue, adding, “every day is a new adventure.” We can’t imagine how full Angelina’s hands must be with six adorable kiddos — Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne — but luckily, she is apparently “always coming up with fun things to do” to keep them entertained.
There supposedly isn’t much she says no to, though. The Lara Croft: Tomb Raider actress is reportedly a “softie” who “indulges the kids and wants to give them everything they want,” the insider shared. “If one of them is interested in something, she really fosters that and makes it happen.”
It’s no surprise Angelina is heavily involved with her kids’ life. In fact, the brunette beauty is always spotted running around town — whether taking Pax to boxing classes, Zahara to martial arts or just hitting the streets of L.A. for a fun shopping trip. “She really likes the life lessons and new ideas that come from trying all different things,” the source said about her family outings. “The sky’s the limit for her.”
The sky’s the limit for her kids, too! Earlier this week, it was announced that Angelina and Brad’s oldest son, Maddox, will be attending college in the fall. While she isn’t naming the institution, many fans of the Mr. and Mrs. Smith star speculate that their son will be attending school overseas after the mother-son duo were spotted visiting a university campus in Seoul, South Korea.
While saying goodbye to Maddox will be hard, Angelina recently admitted that she couldn’t be happier for her son. “I’m nothing but proud,” the humanitarian gushed to People about her son’s decision to pursue higher education. “I look forward to all he will do.”
Luckily for Ang, she still has five more kids to get through college before she starts worrying about an empty nest!
