Angelina Jolie Wishes For Her Kids to Be Doing 1 Thing in the Near Future
Angelina Jolie is a world-famous actress who is known for her roles in numerous movies. These days, Jolie is also a director and producer.
Aside from her impressive career, Jolie often makes news for her family life as well. She has been a mother for almost 20 years now. Like many parents out there, she seems to have thought quite a bit about the kind of future she sees for her young ones. Jolie once shared that there is something she wishes for her kids to be doing in the near future.
Who are Angelina Jolie’s kids and how old are they?
Jolie has six children that she shares with actor Brad Pitt. Jolie and Pitt were married from 2014 and 2016, but their relationship started in the mid-2000s.
Jolie and Pitt’s oldest child is Maddox, who was born in 2001. He was adopted in 2002 from an orphanage in Cambodia. At the time, Jolie was his sole parent, but when she started dating Pitt, he became Maddox’s legal parent as well.
In the next several years, Jolie and Pitt adopted two more children: Pax (b. 2003) from Vietnam and Zahara (b. 2005) from Ethiopia.
The couple also welcomed three biological kids: Shiloh (b. 2006) and twins Knox and Vivienne (b. 2008).
Angelina Jolie said she would like for her kids to be living in various places around the world
It’s clear that the Jolie-Pitt family is an international one. When Jolie and Pitt were married, their children could often be seen traveling with them to different countries around the world for both work and vacation. It has also been said that Jolie and Pitt hired several nannies who could speak different languages in order to give all their kids a multicultural upbringing.
As such, it perhaps is not surprising that in an interview with the BBC in 2017, Jolie shared that she would like for her kids to be living in various places around the world in the future.
“In five years’ time I would like to be traveling around the world visiting my children, hoping that they’re just happy and doing really interesting things, and I imagine in many different parts of the world, and I’ll be supporting them,” Jolie said.
Predicting the future is no easy task, but for Jolie’s family, that wish could actually come true. After all, her oldest son, Maddox, is currently attending university in South Korea. It’s not hard to believe that his younger sibling will follow in footsteps as well and find themselves in other countries.
Does Brad Pitt see the children often?
Jolie and Pitt filed for divorce in 2016, and what ensued was a famous custody battle over their six children.
Pitt suffered some setbacks because of his frequent alcohol use and a few child abuse allegations. However, Pitt started attending Alcoholics Anonymous, and the couple managed to reach an amicable agreement in 2018. It’s not clear exactly what the agreement entails, but reports have said that each parent will get several weeks with their children at a time.
There have also been rumors that Pitt does not get along with his three adopted children. Whether this is true or not, Maddox is now an adult while Pax and Zahara are close to being of age. As such, they will be able to make decisions for themselves in terms of how they would like to have a relationship with Pitt going forward.
