Angelina Jolie’s Unsung Triumph As A Single Mom
Published on September 2, 2019
Everyone adores Angelina Jolie’s roles in Girl, Interrupted, Wanted and Maleficent. The fame and appeal that Jolie has garnered have led to her personal life becoming public knowledge. With her family being devoid of privacy many have wondered how the actress has handled being a single mother, especially after her high profile divorce with Brad Pitt.
The celebrity couple divorced in September of 2016. Both mainstream media and tabloids did their best to sensationalize the split. With all the gossip and misinformation, most failed to deliver any accurate information on the two’s relationship.
The Truth About Brad And Angelina
Media outlets have speculated multiple causes for Angelina and Brad’s divorce. Pitt and Jolie seemingly want to keep the reasoning behind their divorce as private as possible and observers should respect that. What is known is that the two married in August of 2014 and helped raise six children together. Pitt and Angelina had three biological children together. Shiloh was born in 2006 and twins Knox and Vivienne in 2008. The couple also has three adopted children Madox, Zahara, and Pax.
Immediately following the news of the two parting ways, headlines seem to overhype the anger the two had with each other. In any broken relationship, there is bound to be some animosity on both sides. Fortunately, an unknown source used by Entertainment Tonight said the ex’s “rarely argue”. The same source also added the two are “dedicated to co-parenting”. Despite the misleading media hype, supporters of Jolie can be happy to know both her and Pitt seem to be handling the situation well.
The acclaimed actress can sometimes appear as elite from afar. Between her high profile relationships, incredibly successful acting career and unbelievable humanitarian efforts, it’s hard to believe Jolie has time to be a mom.
Angelina Jolie Is More Mom Than Movie Star
Any mother knows the challenges of raising a child, let alone six. The actress seemingly finds a way to keep the house clean, schedule doctor appointments, cook meals, spend quality time with her children and multitudes of other responsibilities; while still working in the film industry. Not only is she balancing motherhood with her career, but she’s now doing it alone.
There are probably several thousand mothers in the world who take care of their family’s responsibilities with little to no recognition. Jolie though uses her platform and financial success to help better her kids. Angelina has been recognized for humanitarian actions throughout her career. While it would be easy to assume that the Hollywood culture could consume her household; it seems she’s more interested in her children being well-traveled and globally intelligent.
The actress and her children are constantly traveling around the globe. Cambodia, Namibia and Korea are just a few places the family has visited recently. Cambodia seems to be one of their more frequent vacation spots, which happens to be her adopted son’s Maddox home country. In Namibia Jolie opened a wildlife sanctuary. Jolie’s oldest also began his college education in Seul, Korea in 2019. Angelina’s efforts to expand her family’s horizons seem to be crafting her children into well-meaning global citizens.
As if you didn’t already know, Angelina Jolie is a truly impressive human being. The talented actress currently has 5 films scheduled to release in the next two years. Some of those films include the much anticipated Maleficent sequel, Maleficent: Misstress of Evil, Come Away where she stars alongside acting veteran Michael Caine and The Eternals which is an upcoming installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite all of that, if you were to google “Angelina Jolie” in August 2019 you’d most likely find news articles about her relationship with her children. Jolie’s efforts as a single mother while still balancing her hectic life-style gives her many fans even more reason to adore the mega-celebrity.
