The Brangelina family in Hello!

The beautiful Brangelina family, complete with their littlest one, is on the cover of Hello! Magazine’s December 19th issue. I love how Maddox looks protective of baby Shiloh. It’s nice to see her with the family as she’s not usually out with them in public. People wonder if there’s some kind of strategy on Brad and Angelina’s part to keep Shiloh out of the spotlight while bringing out Maddox and Zahara, but it could be also be a matter of convenience.

Angelina Jolie has said that she wants to have “many more” children, and that it makes her sad when people offer to take her children places she can never go as a famous celebrity, like Disneyland. She said she tries to give her family as much a normal life as possible:

“I’m very, very lucky. I love the different elements of my life. I love working abroad, and I love being with my kids and I love being with Brad,” Jolie, 31, said Friday at a press event for her movie The Good Shepherd. “I’d like to add many more children and many more obstacles and many more things to my life.”

Asked if she’d ever again work with Pitt, with whom she costarred in last year’s Mr. and Mrs. Smith, she replied with a laugh: “Who’s going to watch the children?”

Indeed, she chooses her films with Maddox, 5, Zahara, 23 months, and Shiloh, 6 months, in mind. “I don’t think that I’ve shot for more than seven weeks on a movie in two years,” she said. “I need to make sure that I have time with my kids.”

And she makes every effort to give her children a normal life, despite her own fame. “I’ve made a point to not let it change the way that I live my life, other than I carefully plan my holidays or where we go or where we stay or things like that to try to ensure some kind of quality of life that is private and nice for the kids. But we simply don’t let it affect us.”

She does admit, though, that there are challenges: “I think that the only time that it is hard is when the kids want to go somewhere and want to see something. I’ve had so many people offer to take my children to Disneyland or places that I can’t take them. And they don’t understand how upsetting that is.

“People offered to take my kids trick or treating or take my kids to whatever – things that they assume my kids can’t do. So we plan to find ways to do all of those things. There are worse problems and so we’re okay.”

    Beautiful. i love them they are great with their celeb status in my mind, i know there are alot of haters but I really do admire them.

  2. Lee says:

    Shiloh is cute, nothing to write home about, she is pretty ordinary and if it was not for her famous parents no one would draw any attention to her. I think Suri is cuter. Kingston and Violet are cuter too. The family does not look happy at all, the picture looks too candid for a cover of a magazine. wish them the best.

  3. Gigohead says:

    The baby looks like the Gerber baby. She’s got a big forehead like her momma. She’s adorable though.

  4. Trish says:

    I hate when people slam on infants. How childish and vulgar of you.

  5. Duckie says:

    I think my baby is cuter…but I may be biased. 😉

  6. suz says:

    Angelina is WAY.TOO.THIN. She looks like a bobblehead, for crying out loud.

  7. Domidroid says:

    I wonder if Zahara ever gets sick of all that crap on her arms, my 2-yr-old won’t even wear a hat.
    P.S. Lee, No one looks happy after hanging out with 3 children under 5 all day, trust me.

    “the picture looks too candid” “they don’t look happy”–oh, you mean “Cruise Happy”.. grinning madly for no reason, Shiloh airbrushed within an inch of her life, death grip hold, kissing for the cameras, laughing like maniacs happy? Sorry, to disappoint, but they seem to be normal people. I think you should go back to worshipping Cruise-azy. As far as Shiloh is concerned–gorgeous, gorgeous baby. She looks very much like the Gerber baby only better (Brad’s face, Angie’s lips). She and Kingston are my top picks but all babies are cute and putting down a baby because you don’t like the parents is vulgar and childlish. I can’t stand La Cruise, but I’d never say a bad word about Suri.

    Good Morning, kailie, nice to see your spark. I agree, babies are innocent, they have no idea their parents are morons, they’re just happy to be here.
    Speaking of babies, I need to take mine to the park, and get some work done. This site’s addictive, like double-fudge brownies for the brain. I’ve got my own site to run. My husband and I run, I’m The Queen of Hearts, swing by some time Y’all, Bye.

    I’m with you too. Both my babies was just as pretty as the Brangelina baby. In fact, my son who is now 12 is going to be much more handsome than Brad. Provided of course, that he’ll pick up his smelly socks from the floor.

  11. ER says:

    Shiloh is just darling, but her dad needs to seriously re-think that ugly headband, headwrap, Nicole Richie inspired do-rag thing!!!

  12. lyric says:

    They are all beautiful.

    I see the PR whores are pimping out their children again, what a surprise considering they both have movies coming out and it’s awards season. They’re both sick individuals who use their children to gather good publicity for themselves.

  14. kailie2 says:

    hey, anonymous.. weren’t you the person who complained endlessly that those PR “whores” DON’T show Shiloh while “parading” their adopted kids? Now that they showed Shiloh, they’re “pimping” her, right? I’ve seen that argument over and over again, always coming from die-hard Aniston fans (who, unfortunately, have nothing else to talk about).

  15. Lola says:

    After todays revelations by Angelina, I can’t stand this family any more, I appreciated their work before but now I see cold people who are fame hungry and all this is PR. Kind to the whole world and be cruel to an individual. I don’t care about the kids and I won’t pretend, the day they split, I will have a glass of champaigne for good riddance to bad rubbish!

  16. looney? says:

    Why do the brangeloonie’s assume anyone who talks smack about brangelina are aniston fans? are no other ppl in the world allowed to not like brangelina? they cant even fathom that people dont like brangelina. here kailie is, talking to an “anonymous” whom she couldnt pick from a line up of other “anonymous” posters.

  17. Someone says:

    What have they done to Maddox’s hair???

  18. Ruby says:

    STop hating kids you racist jackass, go fug yourself in kazakhstan!!
    Lovely pics, thx for scans, celebitchy, cut out racists out to attack children.

  23. KIM says:

    All three of those children are beautiful- even if you hate Brangelina you shouldn’t say mean things about the kids. I’m not a fan of theirs but would never stoop to the low enough level to say bad things about their children.

  24. Anonymous says:

    I think Shiloh is adorable.. I may sound like a racist but, this family would be a whole lot cuter if the adopted kids would be white and not adopted;)
