As if six kids were any less, Angeline Jolie and Brad Pitt are contemplating adopting another child again. The ‘oh so glamorous couple’ is likely to add one more compartment to their train. Currently, this couple has six kids-Maddox (12), Pax (10), Zahara (13), Shiloh (7), and twins-Knox and Vivienne (5). While the first three have been adopted, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne are their biological children.
Coming to the demeanour of the children, it’s not very pleasant. That’s my conclusion from what I read about them while doing my research. They are a bunch of wild kids, not used to hearing a ‘no’. Apparently, they have no restrictions. They eat what they want, they brush and bathe when they want to, and they do what they want to. I don’t blame them. Being insanely busy, I don’t know how much time their parents manage to spend with them on a daily basis. Of course, they go on grand holidays, spend time in luxurious restaurants etc etc. But do they really spend quality time together? I highly doubt it.
In no way am I trying question their love for their little brats, or their nobility to have adopted 3 unfortunate children to provide them with a better future. What I am questioning is, whether they will turn out to be good human beings in future. With everything handed to them on a plate, as is the case with all rich and spoilt kids, will they manage to leave a mark(a good one) on the world, or will they just keep living by, with no real purpose.
We all are aware of the relationship history of both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Before being in a relationship with Brad Pitt, she had been married twice. Brad Pitt too, was married to Jennifer Anniston. When Jolie was 14, she was in a serious relationship with a guy who lived in the same house as hers(she convinced her mom). “I was either going to be reckless on the streets with my boyfriend or he was going to be with me in my bedroom with my mom in the next room. She made the choice, and because of it, I continued to go to school every morning and explored my first relationship in a safe way” is how she later described it. Good going Jolie! I have never been able to understand the casual attitude of these people. Pardon me for my orthodox thinking, but with this kind of eccentric behaviour, I am dubious about the kind of upbringing she gives her children. A child even with all the resources, needs a stable environment too. I am highly sceptical if these young children receive that, with all the paparazzi flashing their cameras on their faces every time they are seen with their parents.
In my view Brangelina should really focus on their existing small army before adding a new little soldier. Good luck Brangelina!
