Quotes:

“I’ll be doing something and I’ll be frustrated, and he’ll hold my hand and say, ‘Are you feeling tired? Is that why you’re upset?’ Yeah, he really does take care of me.” – Angelina on her eldest son.

“Brad has always had this incredible bond with Mad, who’s very smart, and Brad loves teaching him about history and art and culture – it’s an amazing thing to watch them together.” – Angelina on the bond between father and son.

“The hardest job in the world. The most rewarding job in the world. There’s something to — with the long days in here, we’re out here as soon as the sun comes out and to come home and have dinner with your kids and have to discipline one of them who is out of line and still have the energy for that is — I can’t explain the fulfillment of that, but it is everything.” – Brad on parenthood.

    I find it weird that Brad Pitt was able to legally adopt Maddox when he and Angelina were not even married! Reason why I am saying this is because my fiance wants to adopt my 6 yr old daughter but the courts wont let him adopt her since he and I are not married, he can only adopt her when he and I have been married 6 months.

    But anyways I would like to wish Maddox a Happy Birthday!!! I can’t believe how fast time flew and watching him grow up in front of our eyes!

      Maybe it has to do with we’re you live, because both the my cousin and co worker were able to have thier fiance and partner adopt thier kids with out being married with know problems. Each states has its oun rules and regulations, it sucks that you live in one that dosen’t alow it.

      Happy BRITHDAY Maddox!!!

      It’s not weird that he could adopt him…at least not where I live. Maybe it’s a state thing? I am almost positive that this happens often with same sex couples who want to both be legal parents.

      Try moving to a different, better, state.
