When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie started dating, the media went crazy. You couldn’t avoid seeing pictures of the two most attractive people in Hollywood together in every publication, whether you liked, hated, or even cared that they were together.
Hollywood’s most famous couple remained together for 12 years while raising their three biological and adoptive children, despite allegations of infidelity and covert affairs.
When “Tomb Raider” actress Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt first met on the set of “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” in 2004, she already had two adopted sons, Maddox and Pax. Back then, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were still wed.
Because of the film, we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that just suddenly happened. A few months later, I realized, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work.’ Whatever we had to do with each other, we found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became a pair,” Angelina Jolie said to People in 2006.
Many rumors regarding a potential romance between Pitt and Jolie circulated at the time, but the two individuals at the center of the stories remained silent.
“We spent a lot of time contemplating and thinking and talking about what we both wanted in life and realized that we wanted very, very similar things,” Angelina said.
Then, in 2005, Angelina consented to adopt Zahara Marley, an Ethiopian child; in 2006, Brad Pitt adopted her.
When Angelina revealed she was carrying Brad’s child in 2006, they officially became a couple. She and Pitt went to Namibia for the delivery to avoid the ensuing media frenzy.
The announcement that Brad and Angelina, also known as “Brangelina,” were expecting a child together made headlines worldwide.
According to photo agencies, the first image of the infant was thought to be worth $1 million. It is understandable why a horde of paparazzi tried their best to approach the pair.
“Not since Jesus has a baby been so eagerly anticipated,” according to New York magazine.
Shiloh Nouvel, a healthy daughter, was born to the couple on May 27, 2006. In the Namibian coastal town of Swakopmund, a private hospital named The Cottage Medi-Clinic delivered their daughter.
Dr. Rothbart stated to PEOPLE, “Angelina underwent a scheduled cesarean due to breech presentation.”
“The baby was a healthy 7 lbs. Brad was with Angelina in the operating room, cutting his daughter’s umbilical cord. The surgery and birth went flawlessly. “
Following that, Brad and Angelina auctioned photographs of their adorable child for a record sum, with all earnings going to UNICEF.
” While we celebrate the joy of the birth of our daughter, we recognize that 2 million babies born every year in the developing world die on the first day of their lives. These children can be saved, but only if governments around the world make it a priority,” the couple stated.
Due to the unusual circumstances this young girl was born into; it was difficult to avoid the media’s notice. Nevertheless, the couple has tried to keep their children’s lives secret.
All eyes were still on Shiloh, of course. It makes sense, given her parentage.
Shiloh reached the age of sixteen in May of this year. She is now beginning to mature quickly. According to reports, the adolescent gets along well with her older siblings, sister, and younger twins, Knox and Vivienne, who are now 14 years old.
There isn’t much information about the renowned family because none are active on social media. Still, one tidbit has surfaced: the couple’s oldest biological child hasn’t used the name Shiloh since she was a very small child.
Instead, the child has adopted the name John Jolie-Pitt, which she chose. In an Oprah Winfrey interview from 2008, Pitt talked openly about Shiloh’s request that he call her John instead.
” She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it’s a Peter Pan thing. So we’ve got to call her John,” he remarked.
“So we’ve got to call her John. ‘Shi, do you want …’ – ‘John. I’m John.’ And then I’ll say, ‘John, would you like some orange juice?’ And she says, ‘No!’ So, you know, it’s just that kind of stuff that’s cute to parents and probably really obnoxious to other people.”
Her parents, who divorced in 2019, favor John’s choice of name and her desire to dress like her brothers.
According to Angelina, “She wants to be a boy.” Therefore, we had to trim her hair. “So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
Mom Despite having a personal connection to the name Shiloh, Angelina supported the change.
“It was a name my parents almost named their first child – there was a miscarriage: Shiloh Baptist. Because my father had been shooting in Georgia, and that was the most southern name [my parents] could come up with,” she explained.
“It’s a name I always liked. I used to go under it in hotels: Shiloh Baptist. I’d gone under it when Brad called hotel rooms where I was staying.”
Despite Brad and Angelina’s separation, Shiloh still gets along well with her parents.
Additionally, media reports claim that Brad Pitt is a very proud parent.
“Brad’s kids are the most important thing to him. He tells his friends he learns so much about life from his children,”
” He and Angie have been getting along so much better since the custody rules have been worked out. They have come so far.”
Shiloh looks so much like her father. Many people believe that she has her mother’s lips.
One source told E.T.,” Brad is so proud of Shiloh and who she has become. He loves that she always stays true to herself and is so good to her brothers and sisters.”

“I have spent the last two months in and out of surgeries with my eldest daughter [Zahara], and days ago, watched her younger sister [Shiloh] go under the knife for hip surgery.
“So my wish on this day is that we value girls. Care for them. And know that the stronger they grow, the healthier they will be and the more they will give back to their family and community.”
