Happy 9th Birthday Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt!

Angelina Jolie Takes A Lovely Stroll With Her Children

Name: Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt

Date of Birth: November 29, 2003

Parents: Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt

Siblings: Maddox, 11,  Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne

Facts:

♥ Pax was adopted in 2007, from the Tam Binh orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

♥ At birth, his name was Pham Quang Sang, which was changed after his adoption

♥ The name Pax Thien translates to “peaceful sky” – “Pax” is the Latin word for peace, while “thien” means “sky” in Vietnamese

♥ In 2008, Angelina revealed that her son’s first name was suggested by her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, before her death in 2007, saying, “My mom wrote a list of names when we were going to have Shiloh. One of the names that she suggested was Pax because it meant peace. [But] he’s anything but at the moment.”

♥ It has been reported that Pax will make his acting debut- alongside his twin siblings and sister Zahara – in his mother’s new movie Maleficent

♥ He enjoys cooking

Quotes:

“He is extremely wild, but he has a very, very good heart. You know, like those punk rockers – when you really get to know them and they are just pussycats. But at the same time, he is going to get in some kind of trouble.” – mama Angelina on her son.

“Pax is almost three and a half and has never made a real decision for himself because everybody does everything in a group in the orphanage. There were all these things he’d never had. The first time I gave him a bath, he was suddenly laughing, out of his mind. He took five baths in one day. We’d be talking and he’d take his clothes off and run into the bathroom. The first two days, he cried a lot. I hired a translator, and he would explain what was going on. The first night, I slept alone with him. I was expecting him to wake up and scream, but he woke and just stared at me. I handed him a stuffed animal, and we walked around the room pointing at things. By day three, he didn’t want me to put him down. I think he got used to the reality that somebody loves you and that’s what a mommy is.” – Angelina, in 2007, on the adoption of her son.

    Her story of the first three days was very lovely and eye-opening. I haven’t always been a fan of hers, but I do think she has a big heart and a lot of love for children, so for that, I respect what she has done for those children. A lot of people don’t have the compassion to love, nurture and raise children that aren’t their own. It takes a special person to be able to do that.
