Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter Zahara, 2 1/2, may be facing surgery to treat her hip dysplasia, which is when there is an improper connection between the hip and thighbone. If untreated, the condition could affect the way Zahara walks and runs as she gets older.
A source tells the Star magazine, the couple “will do whatever it takes” to ensure their child is “happy and healthy”.
The source adds, “Brad and Angelina have talked with their pediatrician, who told them Zahara may need to have surgery.”
Little Zahara has been through a lot already. When she was adopted from Ethiopia in 2005 , she was suffering from malnutrition, dehydration and a fractured arm. She also had salmonella poisoning.
Added 9/13/07 4:08-I should have mentioned this the first go around, but that’s why I posted the two pictures. Yes, she is always carried around, but she sure didn’t have any problems playing chase in the park. She could still have hip dysplasia, and without surgery, it would worsen with age.
Brad Pitt’s rep, Cindy Guagenti, has told www.TheCelebrityTruth.com that the rumors regarding Zahara needing hip surgery are “not true”.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt pick Maddox, 6, up from school yesterday. Angelina looks pretty in that color green. Her color choices are usually black or white, it’s nice to see her in something different for a change.
Pregnant Nicole Richie and boyfriend Joel Madden are spotted out in Los Angeles. Nicole has been very stylish so far during her pregnancy. This slip dress is much better than the last one she was snapped in, don’t you think?

Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, 42, and his cuter than cute daughter Olivia 3, make their way through the airport in Toronto, Ontario. There are three women pictured, but the one with the dark hair pushing the luggage cart is Vedder’s girlfriend and Olivia’s mom, model Jill McCormick.
I used to love Pearl Jam in the early 90s, Eddie looks exactly the same.
Jennifer Lopez, 38, launched her new clothing line, Just Sweet in NY last night. Speculation ran rampant today online that she was pregnant, after a visible “bump” was seen in photos. It’s no secret that she wants kids with hubby Marc Anthony, so this could be the real deal. It sure looks like it in the photo, but the dress she was wearing was very unflattering and puffy to begin with. Check out lots of pictures here and judge for yourself.
