Angelina Jolie Well Have Three Christmases This Year

Angelina Jolie has revealed she and Brad Pitt will celebrate three Christmases this year.

The ‘Tomb Raider’ star - who has a five-year-old Cambodian son Maddox, 23-month-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara and seven-month-old daughter Shiloh with Brad Pitt - revealed she wants to honour the different cultures of her children during the festive season.

Angelina told Britain’s Grazia magazine: “It’s Shiloh’s first Christmas, and Zahara’s Christmas is January 8, which we’re learning about and celebrating.

“With Maddox, I think it would be the water festivals in Buddhism. So yeah, we’re going to get into all that with them.”

Angelina says parenting is hard work and she is glad she has Brad to help her.

She said: “Raising kids is a hard thing to do and it’s also a great joy. But it’s so much easier when you have somebody supporting you through it. I have Brad.

“You need someone you can look over and smile at when something goes crazy - someone who’s remembering this time with you.

“Being a parent means so much more now I get to share it with somebody.

“It’s also wonderful to have someone be there for my children. They have a great father. That’s made the whole experience nicer.”
