Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is Angelina and Brad’s first biological child, following Angelina’s adoption of Maddox and the couple’s adoption of Zahara. With the 2006 arrival of their third child, the couple cemented their image as the perfect family – at least until their divorce in 2016. Here are some things you might not have known about Angelina’s life before Shiloh joined the family. 1. She kissed her brother on the lips At the 2000 Academy Awards, Angelina won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Girl, Interrupted – but that wasn’t the only thing that made the night memorable. She took her brother, James, as her date to the event, and kissed him on the lips. During her acceptance speech, she gushed about being “so in love” with her brother. What to be mindful of when raising LGBTQ+ children 2. She adopted two children before Shiloh was born Two adopted children preceded Shiloh. Angelina adopted the seven-month-old Maddox from Cambodia in 2002, and raised him as a single mum before she and Brad began a relationship. In 2005, Angelina adopted Zahara from Ethiopia; the infant was six months old and suffering from malnutrition at the time. 3. She tried to hire a hitman to kill her The star has had her share of troubles, but perhaps nothing stands out as much as when she allegedly tried to hire someone to murder her. Her belief was that a staged murder was a better option than suicide, because a suicide would make her family feel guilty and wonder if they could have done something. In a 2003 interview, she said that before agreeing, the hitman “made me think about it for a month. And after a month other things changed in my life and I was surviving again”. 4. She once wanted to be a funeral director If acting didn’t work out, her backup plan was to be a funeral director. At the time she was upset with the way her grandfather’s funeral was handled, and this inspired her backup plan. 6 reasons Maddox Jolie-Pitt is studying at Seoul's Yonsei University 5.
