ANGELINA JOLIE Her family’s life now

The kids are growing up inside their new world

Angelina Jolie
couldn’t ask for better dates. On December 15, 2017 she took daughters Zahara and Shiloh and sons Pax and Knox to the U.N. Correspondents Association dinner in New York City, where she received an award for her refugee work. “We have a responsibility not to break faith, and to hold together when people want to divide us,” she told the audience. (Vivienne, 9, stayed home sick.) The family keeps a lower profile at a $24 million estate once owned by Cecil B. Demille. Jolie bought the spread in part because it’s close to Brad Pitt’s house. “It’s easier for them to visit when they live closer,” says an insider.

Jolie brought four of her children to a U.N. dinner, “The kids are all multitalented and are very smart,” a source says. “They like soccer and skateboarding and take self-defence classes.”

Jolie and Pitt’s divorce, begun in September 2016, is moving forward. The pair have been “working out time for him to be with the kids, which he treasures,” says another source. The home-schooled kids study languages, music and other subjects with tutors.

Maddox and Shiloh joined their mom at an N.Y.C. tribute concert for victims of the Cambodian genocide.

Maddox and Pax also worked on Jolie’s Golden Globe-nominated movie First They Killed My Father. Their mother is busier than ever, producing an animated film, The Breadwinner, which also scored a globe nod, and prepping to film Maleficent 2. While Pitt has dated since their split (“It’s nothing serious,’ says the insider), Jolie doesn’t have romance on her mind. She’s focused on her work, says a pal. And “being a super mom.”

How Brad Has Changed

Pitt, who turned 54 on December 18, 2017 “realised there had to be change” after the split, a source says. “He’s taking care of himself,” and focused on being a good parent. Adds another insider: “Every father wants to see his kids as much as possible.”
