Angelina Jolie is about to undergo another brave preventative surgery, this time to remove her ovaries. Keeping his wishes in mind, Angelina has promised Brad Pitt another baby, and she plans to freeze her eggs so they can conceive through a surrogate. That would bring their beautiful brood to a total of seven kids!
Despite having another major surgery, Angelina Jolie is already selflessly planning on having another baby with her longtime partner, Brad Pitt.
Angelina Jolie — Freezing Eggs To Have Another Baby
In February 2013, Angelina Jolie made a bold and brave move when she decided to have a double mastectomy. The decision came after Angelina was tested to see if she was carrying the same genetic disposition that took her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, for which her results were positive. Now, Angelina is taking her brave preventative actions one step further by opting to have her ovaries removed.
Once Angelina’s ovaries are removed, she will no longer be able to reproduce on her own. Because of this, and because her partner Brad Pitt definitely wants more children, Angelina has promised him that she will have her eggs frozen. If the surgery to remove her ovaries results in her having to undergo a full-blown hysterectomy, Angelina has already planned to produce another one of Brad’s babies through IVF and a surrogate.
“Angie knows Brad wants more children, so she’s decided to freeze her eggs before the procedure so that they can add to the family in time,” a source revealed to Star magazine. “She’s amazing to muster the strength to face yet another major medical procedure and still plan for another baby.”
Angelina’s decision to take steps towards preventing a life threatening cancer from taking her life is inspiring, and knowing that she won’t let this stop her from having more children is truly incredible. What a wonderful role model Angelina is for women everywhere!
Angelina & Brad Base Their Lives Around The Kids
Angelina started adopting over 10 years ago when she took her son Maddox, now 12, home from Cambodia in 2012. Shortly after her relationship with Brad started on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005, Angelina adopted her beautiful daughter Zahara from Ethiopia. That same year, Brad announced that he legally adopting both Maddox and Zahara, and on January 19, 2006, Angelina had their last names officially changed to Jolie-Pitt.
In 2006, Brad and Angelina welcomed their first biological child together, a beautiful daughter named Shiloh who is now 7 years old. Next up, the couple continued to add to their Jolie-Pitt brood when they adopted their son Pax from Vietnam in 2007. The last time the couple added to their family was in 2008, when they welcomed two more biological children. Angelina gave birth to twins Vivienne and Knox on July 12 in Nice, France.
It’s been almost six years since they have had any additions, but now at least they have six awesome kids to help raise their next baby.
