Little-Known Details About The Jolie-Pitt Kids
Maddox And Zahara Were Initially Adopted By Angelina Jolie Alone
Angelina was married to actor and musician Billy Bob Thornton when she adopted Maddox Chivan (born Rath Vibol). Although they announced the adoption as a couple, Maddox was actually adopted by Angelina Jolie alone as a single parent. The marriage between Angelina and Billy Bob ended shortly after the adoption was completed. Angelina adopted Zahara in 2005 when the child was just six months old, and again, did so as a single parent applicant. Angelina first met Zahara at the Wide Horizons For Children orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and applied to adopt her. Brad Pitt formally adopted the two children in 2006, and their surnames were then changed to Jolie-Pitt.
