Shiloh, Maddox & Zahara Jolie-Pitt take bulldog Jacques for a walk in NOLA

The family Jolie-Pitt has gone from LA to New Orleans. The paparazzi caught Brad Pitt tooling around town on a motorcycle yesterday, but we don’t have those photos. We have even better pics – Maddox, Shiloh and Empress Zahara were spotted out with two adults and the family bulldog, Jacques. Jacques was last seen in Budapest, I believe, when Angelina did the 60 Minutes interview and Jacques was all “Adjust my light, please.” As for the adults – maybe the African-American man is a bodyguard? Or just an assistant-type? The Asian woman seems to be with the group too – a nanny? I don’t know. I’m really just looking at the kids and the dog. Things I learned from looking through these photos:

*Zahara is elegant. The way she carries herself, her beautiful little face… she’s going to be a beautiful, composed woman (empress).

*Maddox has a cell phone! Who is he calling?

*Jacques respects Z’s firm hand – he doesn’t get out of control when she’s got the leash.

*Jacques and Shiloh are playmates. When she has the leash, Jacques is all “PARTY TIME!”

*Shiloh is an awesome mess of a girl. She carries herself like Angelina used to, back when Angelina was scary and goth and “different”. Shiloh’s got her mom’s old-school swagger. And I swear, Shi’s short hair is adorable. She has the same haircut Brad had in Moneyball.

*What’s up with Maddox’s hair? It’s a 1970s Florence Henderson shag. Is he aiming for Mick Jagger circa 1973?

*Shiloh digs The Ramones!!

*Z and Shiloh are super-tight sisters. Z seems to want to guide Shiloh, her little sister. And Shiloh isn’t paying any attention.

*Jacques often has an expression of “FML.” He must be so patient with six kids in the house. I bet the twins try to ride him like a horse.

*I desperately want Z’s sandals in my size.

And that’s about it. Shall we even discuss the conspiracy theories as to why we’re seeing so much of the kids over the past week and a half? Is it all about THE LEG?!?!? Maybe. Probably. Angelina just wants to remind everyone that The Leg is a mother. Good PR?

    Jacques can’t disobey to the empress!

      These are unfortunate looking kids. Oh well it’s not my problem anyway.

      • Jill says:

        Unfortunate looking how? They don’t get sent out to play in designer clothes? :roll:

      • nikzilla37 says:

        Unfortunate looking? They look like normal kids to me.

      • Lukie says:

        What an unfortunate human you are for insulting children you do not even know.

        Ah well, not my problem…

      • Kate #2 says:

        Wow. I was just thinking how gorgeous they all were, how great it is that they’re so obviously allowed to be unique individuals in such a large family, and how seeing such beautiful children really made me want another. I guess it really is the eye of the beholder.

      • Shaz says:

        Ditto Kate. Definitely not these beautiful children who have a problem.

      • Really? I think they look amazingly like… kids. I see nothing “unfortunate” there whatsoever.

      • Steph says:

        You are the unfortunate person here… These are children you are talking about, you low-life. Please, in the interest of humanity, go crawl back under the rock, where you belong.

  2. gee says:

    I love when kids act like this. Just small versions of real people. So cute.

  3. Bite me says:

    Cute kids… On march 10 Saturday brad is having his make it right gala in Nola … Today AJ will be doIng the women in the world summit in NYC… So the leg is a mother and people should stop calling it a drug addict and anorexic Uhm yeah

  4. Tapioca says:

    Bad PR – for those of us for whom feeding young children to the paps every time you get a bit of bad publicity leaves a bad taste in the mouth. The kids never exactly look overjoyed to be treated like circus acts, do they?

    You don’t see Johnny Depp pimping his kids to squash the break-up rumours or Christian Bale doing a “loving father & daughter” pap set-up every time his temper gets the better of him. Hell, even Christina Aguilera’s drunken ass seems to value her son’s privacy over pushing him front and centre to show what a “good mom” she is!

      • Fyofeelings says:

        People that claim they hate her are all ways commenting on post about her or her kids smh I can never understand that for the life of me.

      • Jill says:

        That bogus lawsuit is old news, Olivia. Try to keep up.

      • Shaz says:

        And you know it’s bogus how?? celebrities who are richer than most countries can hire top guns and squash a little person with a valid complaint. Don’t know if that’s what happened here, and neither do you.

      • Jules says:

        Why does Ang want you to forget she asked for a dismissal or change of venue?

    • mln76 says:

      I guess you missed all the pics of Lilly Depp out shopping in very innapropriate clothes right around the time of the separation.

      • jinni says:

        I think that had more to do with the media finally having a story about Johnny that the public was interested in and so the paps starting taking more pics of Vanessa and the kids than his team pimping out his kids.

        Anyway, we alway seem to see more pics of them while they’re in NOLA than any other place, that’s probably due to the location of their house.

      • mln76 says:

        ITA jinni BUT my point is there was a story about Depp in the tabs and all of the sudden there were several pics of Lily out and and about. I didn’t think it was a set up i just think paps knew that the pics would sell just like these do.

      • jinni says:

        @mln76: Oh, okay. I get what you meant now.

    • Guest says:

      every time they are in Nola their pics are always taken so why would this be any different?

    • Lee says:

      I see your point, and I certainly have no inside information one way or another, but I also think the Jolie-Pitts are way more famous than pretty much anyone else and have a constant pap swarm around no matter what they do. At that point, do you hide your kids away or do you just inform them about the realities of their high-profile lives and encourage them to just be kids? I don’t know that preventing them from going out in public to walk the family dog is all that much better. And to be honest, the kids look like they’re used to it for the most part and ignore the cameras since they’re likely a part of the scenery wherever they go.

      Really, if we want the kids to stop being harassed by paps, we need to stop caring and looking at photos of them. But they’re just so darn cute.

      • zelly says:

        I’ve always thought it was interesting that any time someone asks the parents what the kids think of all the attention, they say they think everyone’s lives are like this.

        I really like these kids, i dunno why. They look real. And the fact that they let and encourage shiloh to look how she wants delights me. so much.

    • islandgirl says:

      You and Olivia are cray cray. I think you both are more obssess with this family than their fans are. Going and searching the internet for an old article especially when you don’t like the person. Who sane person does that?

      • olivia says:

        It’s from yesterday.

      • islandgirl says:

        Whether it is from yesterday or a month ago, it is still insane for you who don’t like Jolie to be googling her name to find stories about that. Tell me is that healthy? No, it is not. If I don’t like someone you won’t find me on a post about them or searching the internet for stories about them. Because I don’t want to waste my time on people I don’t like.

      • Freya says:

        Isn’t it strange how some people just love to post regularly in threads about celebs they don’t even like.

    • teri says:

      Is anyone interested in Johnny’s children? Maybe alittle, but nothing compared to the JP children. I’m sure they are out and about all the time doing fun family things but nobody notices or goes into a frenzy.

      • Katherine says:

        There are plenty of pap photos of Depp’s kids – while they have been in London, LA, on vacation, on boats, etc. Same with other celebrity kids. Fact is that the tabloid media and even the regular media are not all that interested in buying those photos because they don’t attract magazine buyers or internet viewers the way certain celebrity kids do. But those photos ARE taken and on a daily basis. Just go to those photo agency web sites and you’ll see that all these supposedly invisible children are not safe from paparazzi at all.

        And since the NOLA house is right on the street and it is well known that paps just lie in wait – even going so far as hanging out on the roof across the street – they know almost immediately when the family is astir.

        These kids look happy and healthy and as normal as you can get. They also always seem very well behaved and nice to each other. I think the woman is one of their teachers. She was with them in London on one of their outings.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        @ Katherine: I wouldnt say the paps really hang out in front of their house. I live an hour from NOLA and visit all the time, so I have driven/walked by their house 3-4 times since they have lived there and there really is no one around. Even when they are there. I have also heard Brad say in interviews that’s why they love NOLA so much, bc ppl leave them alone there. For these shots, I would imagine there had to be atleast one or two paps lurking, but they are not surrounded like they are when in LA.

    • Nikki Girl says:

      What are you talking about? These kids are just taking a walk with their family pet for God’s sake! It’s not their fault the paparazzi hounds them- nobody cares about seeing Johnny Depp or Christian Bale’s kids, but pictures of the Jolie-Pitt kids will sell for a ton, therefore the paps follow them constantly. Give this family a break, I never see them doing anything wrong, and they are bigger activists and do more charity work than ANY other celebrities out there, so give it a rest for Christ’s sake!

    • cameron says:

      What bad publicity? showing a leg? But we saw pics of the kids in NOLA before, Budapest, the UK, Malta, NYC, LA, Vietnam, Japan. So were those pics were shown because of some so called bad publicity. There are photos of other star kids but guess what? the bloggers are not buying them. Just go to JJB, there are photos of the Beckhams, Gwen Stefani kids, Jessica Alba, the Afflecks and Christina Aquilera’s son.
      I love when people make judgement about adults and kids they don’t know. You see 10-20 photos of these kids per year and know how they will turn out. I see my child everyday and don’t know but hope she’ll be a decent adult.

  5. Fair and Balance says:

    Why every time kids get out, you call it PR. If she is really worrying about PR, she would have forced Shi wearing pink dress, long hair…… There seems to be one rule for common folks and one rule for celebrities. The celebrities’s children are not allowing outdoor, is that what your are implying?

    • asiont says:

      I second every word in your post

    • islandgirl says:

      most rational post of the day. Thank you

    • phlyfiremama says:

      Cosigning this post! Also, The Asian lady & the Dready guy seem to be in keeping with BrAngelinas stated intention of keeping their respective cultures close~I wish more of the world could put aside racial & cultural prejudices and just BE humans together.

    • P.J. says:

      If Angelina was looking for “good mom” publicity, she would be in the photo with the kids!

      Their house in NOLA is in the French Quarter, right on the street, so they are more exposed to the paps there (unlike at their French chateau, with its huge grounds).

    • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

      Agreed, Fair and Balance, well said.

  6. chloew says:

    this is the first time i’ve seen these kids so happy. they do’nt look like this is wth Mom – they look nervous, anxious

    these really are cute kids, they seem close, they’ve only got each other, never see them with playmates

    and you can’t keep the kids locked away inside yeash.

    • lilred says:

      I would tend to think there would be loads more paps there when Mom is around,very scary for the kids.

      • Franny says:

        great point – I’m sure their attitudes have less to do with their “monster mom” than having hundreds of scary grown men cornering them to take their picture.

      • Jules says:

        Angie has talked about it. She has said that she sends the children to events and museums etc. without her so they can enjoy the experiences without being harassed. They were seen with these teachers at a museum last year and at the cirrcus in Paris. She has talked quite poignantly about friends offeringt ot tkae the children to Disneyland etc.

    • Rhea says:

      You missed the pic of Viv with a big smile when her mom carried her last week. And if you could just google it first, you would find plenty of pictures when the kids looked happy with their parents. Just saying….

    • cameron says:

      obviously you didn’t see the photos of Shiloh and Zahara skipping and laughing on the streets of LA, Maddox and Angie laughing while they were getting in on plane in the UK. The kids smiling while heading on a train to Scotland. The children running and surfing on the beach with Angie and Brad in Vietnam. And the most recent photo of Viv grabbing her mother’s face with biggest smile on face in LA along with Brad’s mom. But again these kids are so unhappy because you see their day-to-day life and their single mother only provides paps with photos when there’s this so called bad publicity for showing a leg.

      Did you know that Brad high-five / shook the hands of the guys backstage after they mock the pose? And that Angie also did the pose again on the side stage after that.

      They don’t take themselves that seriously.

  7. mln76 says:

    Those kids are getting so big. I love how close Z and Shiloh are. There was actually a picture of Shiloh taking out the garbage what would Suri Cruise say?

  8. Toot says:

    Please! How the hell is it that Angelina and Brad are trying to use the kids for “good press” when the parents are not even in the pics? Give me a break.

    We always see the kids more in NO and they probably just wanted to walk their dog. As for that crap about “the leg” , Angelina has moved on to more important things ie. The Women’s forum and realizes like people who have sense, that the whole episode was blown out of proportion.

    • Ailine says:

      It’s one thing not to care go a celebrity. There are people I don’t care for but I don’t go out of my way to bring them down or expose them or insinuate their phoniness. They make up stuff to attack her. It’s just jealousy. If you have a lot of hate for a celebrity and they haven’t been convicted of a crime, then there is probably some jealousy there.

  9. truthSF says:

    The leg hasn’t been talked about in over a week, so I doubt these sighting has anything to do with oscar weekend.

    Anybody whose seen them in NOLA knows that they’re always out and about more freely while in NOLA.

    • Cait says:

      This. Plus, their home is in a quieter section of the Quarter, so they generally get left alone minus the occasional run-in with an enterprising photographer.

      There are loads of celebs here – hell, the kids of two famous folks are in nursery school where I work. You’ll see Ryan Reynolds at Creole Creamery periodically, Octavia Spencer out to dinner, Jamie Foxx hitting on coeds (seriously) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt nearly being run over on Prytania by a harried mom on her morning commute (um, me, actually). My dogs even terrified Tom Felton when he was here filming last summer. ;-)

      Point is, this is a city where lots of folks feel like they can blend in and live comfortably. Do we care that the Jolie-Pitt clan is here? Nah, we’re more obsessed with seeing Drew Brees’ wife at Whole Foods (baby watch for Breesus #3).

      • someone says:

        hahaha i love your comment! next time you almost run over JGL, please send my adoring love his way. he’s hot!

  10. Deltona lakes says:

    what bad publicity? Showing a leg is now bab PR . Let’s see their were photos of the kids in Budapest , Malta , the Uk, NYC so please tell me what bad PR were they trying to divert then . You don’t see photos of other stars kids because the bloggers are not buying them. They are there just go to JjB. Btw, those kids are adorable. Don’t worry about they seem just fine. I love when people can make a judgement about adults and children they don’t know. They see about 20 photos of these Kids a year but know how they will turn out. I see my kid everyday and don’t know but hope that she’ll turn out to be a decent adult.

    • PJ46 says:

      Thank you! I was thinking the same thing. These kids look like the happiest children on the face of the earth with or without their parents. Why can’t all just look at these pictures and enjoy children being children. Their beautiful, happy and playful.
      Whenever i see pictures of the Jolie-Pitt clan all I can do is smile and wish i was a kid again.

  11. Fyofeelings says:

    So kids can’t get out of the house at all now because its a “PR move” when they actually do yeah right *eye roll*

    So they just be locked up in the house 24/7 never come then ok

  12. Fyofeelings says:

    Oh *gasp* she showed her leg its bad PR smh…seriously get off what ever drug your on!

  13. Esmom says:

    The kids are adorable, they seem so relaxed and carefree…and mature. They’re really growing up. And they seem happy. Love to see it.

  14. Katyusha says:

    Is the dog wearing a bulletproof vest?
    That looks like the most cumbersome harness, ever.

    • The Original Mia says:

      Haha. Jacques looks over it, but supposedly they are more pet friendly than the old neck leashes.

  15. Jackie says:

    i wanna be friends with shiloh! she is the coolest kid. def swagger.

    • Lilyb says:

      I agree! Some of my friends are freaking out because she’s such a tomboy now. I can pretty much guarantee, she’s going to be an absolute stunner when she gets older. And Zahara is really coming into her own.
      I like that they look normal, not like the second coming of Zenu or whatever.

  16. Grasshopper says:

    My 4 yr old has Z’s shirt- she wears it with yellow shorts. It’s from old navy. :) Its very refreshing to know that the kids aren’t dressed in designer clothes everyday like Suri. It seems like they try to let the kids have as normal lives as possible.

    • Scout says:

      I am in total agreement!:-)

      • sharylmj says:

        I agree with this post.. I love the way they let their kids dress. All the individual styles are awesome. These kids look normal, happy and healthy. You can tell they love each other, I love the way Z is protective of Shiloh and Maddox is there for both of them :)

  17. Jen34 says:

    I’m jealous.. My 3 kids would be fighting over the dog and the phone. Those 3 seem like they get along so well.

  18. watchingyoubitchh says:

    shiloh is the cutest celeb kids.zahara looks regal and maddox is beautiful.

  19. casey says:

    shilo is so beautiful.she can wear anything and will still stand out.she is almost perfect.i want her straight blond hair, beautiful blue eyes, pouty lips and she is a tall and slim little girl.jackpot genes.let her wear her types of clothes .if she will wear beautiful dresses , no one will notice the other kids.i have to be honest, she is the first one i look to in this pics.she is my favorite.

  20. Dibba says:

    They are cute, just kids. Peeps and paps should leave them alone. Stop tearing them down and/or putting them on a pedestal.

    • Magsy says:

      Exactly. Kinda irrelevant on here because if you say they’re brats you get hated, and if you fuss too much you just look weird talking about somebody else’s kids. Yes they’re cute, yes they’re famous, but they’re kids. Take the cameras somewhere else. Isn’t Harry Connick in New Orleans? How bout a shot of him in his skivvies or something???

  21. jwoolman says:

    Omigosh. Shiloh really does look so much like Brad. They’re all getting so big. Seems like just yesterday that Maddox was five years old and now he’s chatting on the cell phone. Hope he’s not calling the paps to get $$$ for his hair adventures. Remember his mohawk?

    I don’t think there is any nefarious plot to use the kids as a distraction. Their parents just aren’t as paranoid as others and let them go out on the street (gasp!) in comfortable clothes (gasp!!) that actually let them walk and run. Same thing in airport pics, they look pretty normal. They probably aren’t as isolated as people assume.

    • ahoyhoy says:

      I was just coming to say that Shi is starting to look EXACTLY like Brad…even the way she’s talking with her hands in the top picture!

    • Brittney says:

      You know, this is the first time I’ve understood why people always say that.

      To me she looks (especially in her baby pictures) SO much like young Angelina that it was all I could see. Her facial expressions, eyes, and mouth totally have some Brad in them, too.

      Damn, if I were a little girl who resembled Brad Pitt, I might not dress up in overly feminine clothes, either!

      • jc126 says:

        Lol! And I thought the arm gesture was very Angelina-ish.
        Somehow, the three bio kids (which I only mention because it’s pertinent to this post) alternate between looking like AJ and BP. Last week, pics were posted where Vivienne seemed to be Brad’s spitting image, and Knox was AJ”s. Then a day or two later, I see a pic of Vivienne where she looked just like AJ.

    • Hypocricy says:

      All the bio children seem to walk like Brad and have that swagger, especially Shiloh and Knox.

      I still think that while all have both of their parents physical characteristics, they all favor the Voight genes the most.

      They all will be very tall and will probably get even more beautiful as they grow.

  22. Aiobhan says:

    These are some beautiful children. That is all. The comments on the photos are hilarious and I agree with all of them.

  23. Brittney says:

    I hope this doesn’t come across as racist or as a criticism, but…

    I’m willing to bet that hiring Asian and African-American staff members was no coincidence. Angie’s said they try to teach their adopted children their “native” languages; maybe these two also tutor them and that has something to do with it? Whatever the case, it’s kind of cool… ensuring that all six of their children spend a lot of time with someone of the same race.

    It actually is quite critical for a child not to grow up feeling like an outsider based on their appearance.

    • Jen says:

      Not 100% sure but I recall some mention of them having nannies or people around that spoke their native languages. Cool thing to do if you have the $$.

  24. islandgirl says:

    awwwwwwww so cute. The kids are so darn adorable and getting so big

  25. Happymom says:

    Maddox’s hair is a pretty standard “boy look” here in So Cal. My 11 year old son has the same hair. My husband and I call it the “David Cassidy.”

  26. really says:

    the top photo is beautiful. these are lucky kids, and that is a cute dog.

  27. Maya says:

    They’re adorable. I know it sounds cheesy, but what a lovely image of family – three kids having fun together, and it doesn’t matter that one is blonde, one is Asian, and one is black. They’re still brother and sister.

    I don’t know; I just find it really sweet.

    • Hypocricy says:

      My sentiment too. You don’t even see color when you look at them. they are brothers and sisters who will grow up being less prejudiced.

      Makes me want to adopt internationally too.

    • mln76 says:

      That’s so sweet :)

  28. Rhea says:

    Jacques was all “Adjust my light, please.”—> LOL :) I used to taking care of an english bulldog like Jacques, and they are sooooooooooooo adorable. They love it when they are the center of the attention. When I was walking her out, a couple of teenagers stopped to admire her and saying how she was cute and all.

    I still remember how she kept on walking while turning her head to the teenagers(eating up their adoration)not seeing the fire hydrant in front of her and almost hit it.

    I am sure the kids and Jacques adore each other ;)

  29. Original Chloe says:

    How about the guy carrying Shiloh being a nanny?

  30. Jenna says:

    I don’t think its a PR stunt, but who knows maybe it is? I just can’t get over how adorable these kids are. So much cuteness. (Momma still needs to eat a sandwich though. Or five.)

  31. Heh says:

    No doubt in my mind that Shiloh might turn out to be transgendered (which is not a bad thing at all as long as they have the love and support of friends and family, like she seems to have). Most of my friends who were trans or who are LGB knew at a very young age, but unfortunatey because of social stigma and fear of what their families might say, tried to act “normal” for most of their youth. I am not the biggest fan of Brad and especially Angelina Jolie. However, if Shiloh does turn out to be trans, I applaud them for allowing her to be who she is from the moment she knew, not making their child feel forced into dresses and pink and playing with dolls. A happy child is one who can feel comfortable with who they are and what they feel.

    • islandgirl says:

      Really and you came to that conclusion by not knowing her but seeing pictures of her and because she likes to wear boys clothes and her hair is short. How about you just lay off the child and yes she is a child and just let her be. I would never look at someone’s child and say that they are transgender because the way their dress.Passing judgment on someone’s child is not right especially when you don’t know anything about them.

      I just hate when people pick on children

      • Amanda says:

        Oh, hush. You’re the one being prejudiced and acting like it’s a bad thing. Seeing people behave like this really bothers me. You took a positive post and twisted the meaning while making yourself look like a huge bigot. Congratulations.

    • Maripily says:

      My daughter’s best friend Sabrina dressed like Shiloh when they were that age. Boy clothes, short hair, sneakers. She was a really active little girl, always jumping and running and doing cartwheels…I could see why she wanted to wear the comfy boy clothes instead of the skirts and glittery Mary Janes my daughter favored. Now she is 17, and dresses just like all the other teen girls with the Forever 21 clothes and heels and makeup. I find it funny that when she was a kid, her mom was always being harassed by the other moms for allowing Sabrina to dress like a tomboy. I think adults read too much into things.

      • Hypocricy says:

        I will never force a child to put clothes they don’t want but personally even if i was a very girlish little girl and teen, I prefer tom boy clothes on girls from toddlers to teens.

        I put my first jeans at 19 and discovered baggy jeans much later…it feels comfortable.

        I miss the time where R&B singers like AAliyah were softly sexy and feminine and yet boyish in baggy, sporty jeans. I think it’s cool, comfortable when you are a teen or younger.

        I hate the oversexualized Rihanna type of clothes that teens today wear.

    • mln76 says:

      I totally support transgendered people but I don’t think its OK to project their beliefs on Shiloh.
      Could she be trans SURE and thank god she’s got Brad and Angie for parents not Kirk Cameron if that’s the case.
      On the other hand it really could just be a phase she’ll outgrow.

    • Jill says:

      I am betting that when Shiloh is 12 or 13 she will be raiding Angelina’s clothes closet and trying on all her make-up.

    • Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

      Really? She’s a young girl who has found a fun funky style that just happens to be in the boys section. My two year old is obbessed with Cars and McQueen and she will only wear clothes with him on it. Does that mean that she’s going to be transgendered? How about when we asked her what hair cut she’d like she pointed at my husbands and said because you don’t have to brush it…does that mean she’s going to be a lesbian?


      These young girls today can be and do what they want and their sexuality/gender shouldn’t be called into question. So so sad.

  32. The Original Mia says:

    I think the headline should be Jacques, the bulldog, walking the JPs. They look relaxed and happy to be hanging with each other.

    Queen Zahara!!!!!

    love it.

    What a different life those children lead than normal kids ( no fault of the children or their parents) but I can’t even fathom having a bodyguard following me around everywhere I went as a child. You think those children ever put two and two together and get they have bodyguards because some loon might kidnapp them and hold them ransom or you think their just so use having them around they never ask why they have them?

  35. Cerulean says:

    Adorable children. They seem very close and very happy. I don’t think the photos are a coincidence though. I don’t think it’s harmful to give us photos as these children are well protected but it’s PR plain and simple. Stars can go under the radar when they want to. I’m not saying it’s always PR but I do think it sometimes is.

    • Rhea says:

      “….but it’s PR plain and simple. Stars can go under the radar when they want to. I’m not saying it’s always PR but I do think it sometimes is…”

      —->So it’s not always PR but if it’s Jolie-Pitt’s kids it MUST BE PR plain and simple? Hmmmmmm…. Just saying that it’s not that easy for the kids to go incognito when going outside with the dog. For adult yes, they could wear wig, sunglasses, coat, hat, whatever. But kids?? Or are you saying they should just stay walking the dog inside the house when the weather is nice?? ;)

      • Cerulean says:

        No I’m not saying that. I like AJ and BP. I love seeing pictures of their beautiful family but it’s also PR. Stars do this.
        Jennifer Garner, Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr…to name a few, also do this.
        I’m not of the camp that thinks it’s bad to let your fans see your children. Especially since you can control the atmosphere and not have paps acting desperate and dangerous to get a photo.
        NOLA isn’t a hot bed of celebrity like LA so yes that makes me think it was arranged. But I’m not hating on them for it.

      • Rhea says:

        Just want to point out though that you did say that it’s not always PR. So why not try to think that this one is not staged?

        If it’s for PR move, where’s Brad or AJ? Aren’t they supposed to look like the doting parent in photo op? If they go out with the nanny and bodyguard isn’t that inviting a headline where their parents must be fighting over the Leg accident so the kids going out the house with the nanny because they can not stand the tension at house? God, I sounded like Star magazine :)

      • Katherine says:

        “NOLA isn’t a hot bed of celebrity like LA”

        Doesn’t mean there aren’t celebrity photogs. There is a speecific celeb photog in NOLA who used to tweet (maybe still does) about his work covering celebs in NOLA. The JPs presence in NOLA gets out very quickly and Voila! there will be paps at the ready to lie in wait. Jonah Hill told a story about this when he was staying at the JP house for the months he was filming a movie there. Seems all that has to happen is some activity at the JP house and the fans and photogs appear there.

    • sakyiwaa says:

      arranged or not, Cerulean… you’d probably have more people clicking on these pictures than they ever would any other celeb kid! and that’s the truth!

      • Cerulean says:

        I agree. We want to see them. No other celebrity children even come close. I love that they are a mixture of adopted and biological. I love that they are a multi racial family. I love that they smile a lot. It makes me smile.
        I also like that critics be damned Shilo is a tomboy and they let her be.

    • cerulean says:

      You guys made some valid points and I can see what you are saying. I am only saying that often photo ops are arranged and they have certain photographers that they allow exclusives. None of us can say for certain whether is for PR or not. None of us are up close and personal with them so its really all supposition.
      Maybe its PR and maybe its not but its not impossible.

      I love NOLA and that they are there. Brad is doing good things there.

  36. Lari says:

    I thought that was Pax in the pics…isn’t Maddox older?

    • Hypocricy says:

      It’s Maddox; He is a tiny 10 years old.

      The girls and especially Shiloh are very tall…after all she has Voight genes.

      • Lari says:


      • Jill says:

        Maddox is probably average for his age, given his ethnicity. He is Cambodian and they tend to be very short. I googled the average height of adult men by country and found Cambodian men are among the shortest in the world. Their average height is only 5 feet 3 inches.

  37. BerMan says:

    Great pictures regardless if its PR. They look well adjusted and content. So kudos to the family unit and friends who are around them.

  38. Franny says:

    That dog leaning against the wall is seriously hilarious. I hope that becomes a meme more than the Leg already has. Kind of like Sad Keanu but sad Jacques.

  39. sakyiwaa says:

    they are sooo frickin’ adorable!!!

  40. Ravensdaughter says:

    They are all darling-especially Jacques!

  41. di elepha beth says:

    Shiloh seems to have that missing front tooth for forever. Or maybe it’s just a different front tooth from last time? can’t remember when the first lost front tooth surfaced.

  42. spinner says:

    I guess I just don’t get all the fuss over these children. They look like any other ordinary kids. Kinda creepy to be analyzing them like this. I wouldn’t want my kids oggled & scrutinized in this manner. The kids can’t help but be affected by all of this.

    *Exiting creepy thread*

    • Maripily says:

      As cute as my kids and my beagle Rufus are, I’m not famous, so it would be creepy if people roamed my Facebook pages and started evaluating their various poses in my pictures. But these kids are another story. Their parents are one of the most famous people in the world. They are being raised in a unique, multicultural family, and that alone is very intriguing. This isn’t creepiness, it’s curiousity. I’m sure AJ and Brad have prepared them for life in a fishbowl, just like I’ve prepared my kids for their quiet, suburban existence, lol.

  43. Anguishedcorn says:

    Short hair, boy clothes… doesn’t matter, you can see how beautiful Shiloh is. They are all really special kids, from the pics and descriptions I see.

  44. Linda says:

    Why can they go out without some of you saying is for PR. We see Jennifer Garner almost everyday with her kids. She is doing what normal mothers would do. We also see other celeb moms with their kids. I guess they are all pimping their kids. Or is this only applies to the Jolie Pitt kids.

    Do some of you really expect Angie & Brad to lock up their kids. How often do we see them. If it is for PR, Brad & Angie would take them out every single day. When they are out is for PR and when they are not out what’s wrong with the Jolie Pitt kids. We hardly ever see them. Damn they do and damn they don’t. Love them or hate. I have never seen they misbehave in public with or without their parents. They seem like they have a good brothers/sisters relationship.

  45. Agnes says:

    six kids, that must be taxing for the cute little dog. :) love the pics.

  46. BK says:

    If celebs of this level choose to hide their kids and lives away behind walls, it seems the Paparazzi just goes after them all the harder. Sometimes they go way over the line and people can get hurt even.

    So given that reality, I don’t see a problem with people like the Pitts to combining a normal family activity with an opportunity for the press to take some pics along the way.

    Those kids seem pretty happy and healthy and actually seem to like each other, and I think that’s pretty cool. It’s a “Good Thing”.

  47. Amanda says:

    O_O I thought Shiloh was a boy at first… I have a hard time keeping track of all those kids.

  48. Guest says:

    Remember when Shiloh wasn’t sewn for a while and in touchs cover was “where is shiloh? They repeated this same cover a few years later only it was “where are the twins”. Have u ever seen a celeb couple have a kid n the kid hadn’t been in public for awhile n a mag puts them on a cover asking about their whereabouts.

  49. Franny says:

    In that 4th picture, Z reminds me of the F*ck yeah meme:

  50. the original bellaluna says:

    Adorable pix! I’m loving that Jacques. :D

  51. serena says:

    Shiloh looks so cute with that haircut!!
    And I love how she and Empress holds hands like good sisters!

  52. Sasha says:

    I love that Empress Z and Shiloh are close! The picture of them holding hands is adorable!

    Can’t wait to see how Shiloh grows up though. I LOVE her short hair and tomboy attitude. She is going to be one fearless woman!

  53. skuddles says:

    I suspect those two nannys speak Maddox’s and Zahara’s native languages – I recall AJ saying she wanted their adopted children to have that connection to their cultural origins.

    My Mom gave me the exact same haircut as Shiloh when I was that age. But unlike Shiloh, I seriously hated it….

  54. chloew says:

    the more i look at these pics – the more troubled i am, i’m sorry, critique me if you want. But I get really uneasy looking at Shiloh – she really looks like a little boy.

    • The Original Mia says:

      Then don’t look at her. WTF kind of statement is that? You get uneasy looking at her. Sounds like a personal problem.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      So what? When I was 4, I used to sit on the arm of my mom’s rocking chair strumming my imaginary guitar singing “When I was a little boy” (a song I made up).

      I’m fine, thanks. 3 kids, a husband, big boobs, long hair, the whole shebang.

      Leave the kid alone.

      • skuddles says:

        I was either a horsey or a kitty until I was about 5… I think I turned out okay ;)

        Bellaluna, you sound like a hot tamale!

    • HungryHippo says:

      “she really looks like a little boy.”
      And thats a problem because…? You sound prejudiced to me.

  55. dorothy says:

    Just a normal group of kids. Coming out of their 5 million dollar home, with their nanny and bodyguard, walking their no doubt $10,000 dog with his $1500 leash. Maddox with his smart phone 10….Yep, just a normal family.

    • Madison says:

      Just because their parents are wealthy doesn’t mean they are not normal, it’s just a different kind of normal. They look like any other kids out with their dog and some friends.

    • Franny says:

      oh, calm it down.

      the kids have all been seen wearing hand-me-downs

      that leash/harness can be purchased anywhere for less than $100

      I’m sure Maddox is just playing with his bodyguards phone and thinks he’s awesome pretending to be a grownup, just like most 8 year olds do

      and are you suggesting these children run around without having a body guard?

      They didn’t ask for this life, but they look well adjusted and seem to like each other. Which is more than what I can say for myself at their age, when I would throw a fit if my sister looked out my car window (that was seriously something i had a tantrum about…my parents still won’t let me live it down).

    • Linda says:

      Have you seen Suri wears hand me down clothes. These kids did. Just because they are rich it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t enjoy life. As long as the parents teach them the value of the $$ and I am sure Brad & Angie do. Also, we are in 2012. What kid doesn’t have a phone, ipad, iphone, etc. Even poor parents still try to get their kids these stuff and have dogs.

    • Pia says:

      Nobody charges $10,000 for a purebred bulldog LOL… for all you know it could have been a rescue.

    • irmawati says:

      they can be rich n also normal.
      and all kids now days have cellphone. many of my students 4-5 years old has a blackberry or smart phone.
      they also have nannies and drivers, but they are normal kids for me. they play like all kids play. the only diff is they have wealthy parents that can afford them stuff. we dont judge people by the cover.

  56. Jennifer says:

    I like how they seems to be friends. I wish I as like that with my sibs. They are all cute, just being kids.

  57. mummy says:

    I think they are arguing about who gets to walk the dog.

  58. cecilia says:

    my favourite is Shilo by far, you can see she has so much personality. She is gonna be a star, no doubt.

  59. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Empress Z. how much do I adore thee? She and Maddox are my absolute favs interms of style and dress for little kids. And she is gorgeous! And I know it sounds weird, but Z, Maddox, and Pax are really starting to morph a little into Angie and Brad. Yes, I know, but it’s true! I’m looking at Z and it’s freaky how she kind of reminds me of Angie a little. And Maddox totally has Brad’s walk!

    Shiloh is looking a lot like Brad these days! All six kids are purty.

  60. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Kaiser this one made me laugh so hard. I mean, most posts that have humor-related themes dont really crack me up that much. But seriously, these observations are the best:

    “Shiloh is an awesome mess of a girl…”
    “Maddox has a cell phone! Who is he calling?”..”What’s up with Maddox’s hair? It’s a 1970s Florence Henderson shag. Is he aiming for Mick Jagger circa 1973?”

    So great. Please do more of this!

  61. original sandy says:

    adorable children, wow, just cute, i don’t have a favorite, i can’t choose, they all have different things i like about each one. i think the people who are complaining are threaten that along with everything else, these people seem to warrant attention rather asked for or not, we see other celebs kids every day, nothing is said, but jp are pimping? we don’t see these kids often.

  62. gg says:

    Whenever I see little kids wearing Ramones t-shirts I seriously doubt they are Ramones fans. these shirts are sold everywhere. It’s more for the parents to think – haha, my kid looks like a Ramones/Pink Floyd/Neil Young fan like me in the 70s! They sell these things at Target.

    However I WOULD be impressed if Shiloh actually liked the Ramones.

  63. lainey says:

    Love that Zahara and Shiloh are holding hands! So cute :)

  64. S says:

    actually, Maddox’s hair is super common for boys in Japan and all across China, really— so NOT COOL to only equate it to the “white culture” you know, man :(

  65. The OG Sasha says:

    The black guy with them must be an assistant of some kind — he looks way too hip to be a bodyguard (who usually look more buttoned up and/or ex-military wearing suits or black cargo pants with a black t-shirt).

    • Jill says:

      Not true. I know a guy who works as a bodyguard and sometimes wears jeans and a t-shirt on the job. It depends on who your client is and where they are going.

      • lisa says:

        I think they are teachers. Brad and Angie have said they travel with teachers. Both of them have been seen with the BG. They are usually the ones I’ve seen with the kids when Brad/Angie are not around.

        The woman has been seen taking the kids to museums and such.

        I think Brad and Angie are doing a great job with their children. Trying to at least give them normal experiences. And while some like to say the children are PR. Well not even going to comment on that. Children are a life time commitment. Both of them talked for years before they got together of how they wanted a big family. Neither of them really grew up with loads of money. Despite being Voight’s daughter, Angie didn’t live the life of access. Brad’s family was middle class too. But the children are cute and yes any time they are seen it will be news.

  66. Moreaces says:

    Great Pictures.

  67. irishserra says:

    Cute little bunch of little kids, all of them. I’ve never been overly fond of either AJ or BP, but as far as parenting goes, they appear to be doing a pretty good job. The children seem relaxed and comfortable and with open affect.

    And for whose who consider the children unfortunate looking, just give it a few years. These children will likely be stunning in appearance. Even their parents were awkward looking in their earlier years.

  68. mary simon says:

    Shilo is a perfect blend of Brad and Angelina – you can see both of them in her features. lucky girl!

  69. Leah says:

    Gosh, Shiloh is a dead ringer for Brad! They’re all cute kids and I want to steal Jacques.

    I also like to believe ALL kids ride dogs like horses, haha.

  70. Redd says:

    They are all cute kids, wonder why someone doesn’t help tame Z’s hair and oil up her skin….looks so dry, not hating, just sayin.

  71. emma says:

    Wow. Zahara is going to be stunning. I never thought one way or the other before but looking at these pictures she is so beautiful.

  72. anon says:

    Angelina is on Television live right now at the World Women’s conference presenting a peace prize

  73. Peg says:

    These kids are cute! I know how much my little nieces and nephews love to walk my dogs! Just typical kids.

  74. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    These kids and their dog are too cute. Get off Shiloh’s sex. She dresses in what’s right for her, not right for her sex. Folks know this but want to pick on something and at this late stage in this long relationship, anything will do. This is not a battle you can win. She is ignoring the complaints. Seems their parents are teaching them good things.

    They look to be very close and can get along. The people around them appear loyal and trustworthy as they have not been shown the door. Their regular bodyguard is also with them and can be seen in other pics making at least 3 adults with them. Fantastic that they don’t take chances with their kids even when they are not around.

    As for PR, nonsense. It is widely known the JP’S are in NO for the huge benefit this weekend. Any pap agency would be nuts to not have cameras ready.
    That’s just too easy money to be had. It’s a guarantee sale leg or no leg.

    But again, Angie is out doing her thing and ignoring her detractors and Brad is gearing up for his thing and ignoring the detractors, as they should. No shame in their game. Angie is proving that bad girls can achieve. They are laughing at people caught up in some lame drama. In your face, not even behind your back is how they do it. Too bad Angie was not shamed into hiding and withdrawal. NY was calling and she makes no excuses. Quite proud of that one, I am.

  75. Bird says:

    Are these kids ever with their parents? Does Saint Angie really need to present a peace prize? I have a strong feeling she can’t handle being around them very much.

    • HungryHippo says:

      This is the one photo we’ve seen where the kids AREN’T with their parents. I have a strong feeling you don’t know what you’re talking about.

  76. anom says:

    love seeing the Jolie-Pitt kids. jacques is soo cute.

  77. Val says:

    Y’all are crazy….that’s Pax, not Maddox.

  78. stephi says:

    the adopted ones are so ugly!!!!!

  79. Cleo says:

    Wow, that child’s looks could go either way. I would never set up a family base in NOLA – time is too short and those kids are not getting tutored to get into a top college, I bet.

  80. Maritza says:

    Of the whole group, Shiloh is my favorite. She always looks so happy and fun to be with.

  81. Lorrie says:

    Why aren’t these kids in school? They deserve some normalcy in their lives.

  82. Sam says:

    I hope the dog is neutered. Should have got a rescue dog if Angelina was into raising “consiousness for animal welfare”.

  83. angel says:

    I HATE Shi’s hair. Always have, always will if they keep making her look like this. And to whoever said Shiloh likes the Ramones!!! Please. Angie has been making her into a hipster since she came out. She’s ruining what should really be the graceful, angelic beauty in the house. Maybe she can’t handle being overshadowed by Shiloh’s natural flawlessness. I’m just sick of waiting for this stupidity to end. Argh, let her beauty shine! Stop chopping off her hair! She’s NOT a boy!

    • Zara says:

      Dude! Step away from the interwebs and get a life. Shiloh’s hair has no bearing on your life…trust me on this one.

      • angel says:

        Dude, I’m disabled from neck surgery and laid up in bed 24/7 at the moment so the “interwebs” lol are my entertainment for right now. I’m pretty sure my opinion of Shiloh’s hair has no effect on you so YOU go get a life, since you are probably capable of walking, working, showering, living.

    • Rainy says:

      So right you are and I don’t give a flying fig what all these brown nosers have to say about it.. Let the child be a girl instead of forcing her to be a boy. To say that she choses her own clothes is pure BS.. She choses from what’s provided for her! It’s a known fact that Angelina has a thing for promoting gay rights but to use your own child in that promotion is just SICK! She was born a girl. LET HER BE A GIRL. And if the rest of you choose to turn a blind eye to the reality of it, that’s your choice, just don’t take your stupidity out on me with your name calling. Some of us are NOT blind to the truth.., Now,, don’t even start on me that Im a Angelina hater.. nothing could be further from the truth,,. love her to death and think she’s an awesome actress.. I just don’t approve of what’s she’s doing to Shi.

  84. Zara says:

    @ Angel,
    What does Shiloh’s hair have to do with your immobility? I know quite well the pain of having major surgery, having had both hips replaced. Never, at any point in my recovery did I think that harping on a little girl’s haircut or others on the internet would bring me any type of relief.

    Best wishes on your recovery!!

  85. Brax says:

    Shi reminds me of my own little girl. The only difference my girl is rocking a buzz cut so she can “match daddy.”

  86. MK Martin says:

    It’s never possible that they’re just walking around, is it?
