Mom-of-six Angelina Jolie has the usual challenges facing the parent of a large family, and with her multi-cultural brood the actress also has to make sure her kids stay connected to where they came from. The actress adopted three of her children – Maddox, 9, from Cambodia; Pax, 7, from Vietnam; and Zahara, 6, from Ethiopia – and gave birth to Shiloh, 5, in Namibia, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 3, in France.
In a new interview the actress emphasizes how she and Brad Pitt make sure their children keep in touch with their own cultures.
“They are all learning about each other’s cultures as well as being proud of their own,” the Tourist tells the Financial Times.
“So it’s not like just the boys get to do the Asian thing. They all have their flags over their beds and their individual pride.”
And all those international visits pose another challenge. “We owe Vietnam a visit, because Pax is due,” she says. “Z wants to get back to Africa, and Shiloh too. So everyone takes their turns in their country.”
