Flashback to BRANGELINA!
41-year-old Angelina and actor Brad were known to have been in a relationship since 2004. The pair eventually met one another during the sets of the action-comedy film Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It is a well-known fact that Brad Pitt was formerly married to Friends actress Jennifer Aniston in 2000. Since Jennifer filed for a divorce with Brad citing irreconcilable differences, it was during the legal proceedings of their divorce that Brad and Angelina began their romantic relationship.
In mid-April 2005, a set of paparazzi spotted Brad, Angelina and her son Maddox at a beach in Kenya; and this is when it was confirmed that they were indeed together. Since then, the couple had been known as ‘Brangelina’.
The couple announced their engagement 4 years back, in 2012. And two years later, in 2014, the couple chose Correns, France as their wedding venue and tied the knot with complete presence of their six children to witness their marriage! Eventually, she took in the name “Jolie-Pitt” – but all in vain, is it?
Apparently, both the actors, 52-year-old Pitt and Jolie, had been associated with other actors before they fell in love with one another. Did you know that the humanitarian cum actress was also previously married to British actor Jhonny Lee Miller? Angelina’s marriage to Brad was her third since she had tied the knot with American musician and film-maker Billy Bob Thorton in 2000.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Children
Angelina, being a soft-hearted human being, adopted her first child, a seven-month-old son named Maddox, from an orphanage in Cambodia in 2002, when she was 27 years old. She had visited Cambodia twice while shooting for her action movie Lara Crift: Tomb Raider. The child was adopted when she was formerly married to Billy Bob Thorton. Angelina adopted her son as a single mother since the couple separated three months later of the adoption.
In 2005, Angelina again adopted a six-month-old girl, Zahara Marley from Ethiopia. The birth mother to the child came forward to the media, but it was revealed that she had abandoned the child. It was also discovered that Brad and Angelina both took a joint decision to adopt the baby girl.
A year later, Angelina gave birth to their biological daughter, Shiloh Nouvel in Namibia. In order to donate any sum of money to UNICEF, the couple sold pictures of their child to People and Hello! for a colossal sum of $4.1 and $3.5 million, respectively.
Again in 2007, our dream couple adopted another child, a three-year-old boy named Pax Thien from Vietnam. This child was adopted under the name of Jolie because according to the law in Vietnam, any unmarried couple was not provided with the rights to co-adopt. Later after they returned to the USA, Angelina petitioned for a joint surname to the child and in 2008, Brad officially adopted Pax too.
Angelina took the wonderful opportunity of 2008 Cannes Festival to announce her second biological pregnancy – with twins! A daughter, Vivienne Marcheline and a son, Knox Leon was welcomed to their family in July 2008. Here too, the first picture of the babies was sold to People – for a whopping sum of $14 million! This is known to be the most expensive celebrity photographs to have even been sold in history.
Everyone is heartbroken with this sad news and we wish the children to have a healthy living.
