Can you believe Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s oldest son is turning nine today?
It’s hard to believe that it was just eight-and-a-half years ago that Maddox’s mom, Angelina Jolie, adopted him from Cambodia. In March of 2002, Maddox — who was born Rath Vibol — officially became Angelina’s son, and almost four years later, in January of 2006, he became Brad Pitt‘s. Since then he’s gained five siblings and has become an “official leader” of the Jolie-Pitt crew.
Angelina says that adopting Maddox changed her life and described her oldest child as “very smart but he’s got a certain sense of calm,” which probably helps a lot when you have five younger brothers and sisters!
We hope you have a great day, Maddox! Next year, it’s on to double digits!
