Angelina Jolie, Zahara and Shiloh go shopping with their favorite things

Angelina Jolie was spotted out shopping for Easter baskets with her two older daughters, Zahara, 4, and Shiloh, who turns three on May 27. I thought these photos were so cute because both Zahara and Shiloh have their comfort items with them. They were also seen getting Easter items at an art store. Angelina told Hello! Magazine in an interview published last year that Zahara has a blankie and Shiloh has “silkies,” and it looks like that’s what they’re both carrying in some of these pictures. Here’s how Angelina described her children’s comfort items:

“Madd is interested in the military right now, so he has a lot of little army men and military planes. Pax has bits of rope – that’s his thing, for some reason – and also stuffed monkeys, which he loves. Pax packs a lot – his bags are very small, but they’re really heavy. Zizi has a blanket that was once actually pink, but now is the dirtiest shade of brown you can imagine. Shiloh has little, what she calls ‘silkies’, which are like these little square things with silk on them that are very important to her because she just has to have them… and I think that’s about it. Knox and Viv don’t have things yet because they’re too small, but I’m sure that just as soon as they’re ready for them, I’ll hear about it.”

[From Hello! Magazine, print edition, October 21, 2008]

Zahara’s blanket doesn’t look all that dirty to me so maybe she got another one or Angelina is exaggerating. These pictures are adorable and it’s so nice to see how the girls are growing up.

The family is in NY while Angelina is reportedly looking at apartments for when she needs to be in the city to film thriller Salt. They are also said to have rented a huge estate on Long Island.

Update: According to People, Angelina was “visiting an apartment building that will serve as a production location” for Salt yesterday, not looking for an apartment for her family as was previously reported.

Thanks to SplashNews for these pictures.

    Adorable, keep up the good work Angie.

  2. jennifer says:

    so cute!!

  3. duchess says:

    Shiloh is such a pretty little girl. Why is her hair always such a mess?

    AJ should really stop the mommy chop because it sure does not look good.

  4. Kaiser says:

    Look at the little sweethearts! I chewed on my security blanket when I was Shiloh’s age too.

    Empress Z still looks like she’s gonna cut somebody. Awesome.

  5. HEB says:

    Beautiful children. I think Shiloh’s hair looks great! Like any 2 year old’s hair! My sister had whispy blonde hair like that when she was a baby, aww

  6. doodahs says:

    Duchess: My hair looked exactly like Shiloh’s at that age. My mom despaired of me because it was wispy and fly away and she couldn’t do anything to make it look neat. I now have a thick mop of hair and I consider it my best feature.

    I think Shiloh’s features look exactly like Brad Pitt’s. She has his eye shape but she looks like she has her mom’s face shape. Cute!

    Z just always looks to me like she is ‘above’ this fame nonsense and she seems to have an old soul. Adorable!

  7. Bodhi says:

    What cuties!! When I was a little peanut I hauled around a ratty teddy bear named Wallace everywhere I went. I still have him & he has been loved to pieces, litteraly!

  8. Bodhi says:

    Same here, doodahs. My hair was just like that when I was little, only curly

  9. Gris Gris says:

    They are such cute sisters! Very sweet. I must admit I love that they are wearing practical, no-fuss clothes that could easily be from the Gap or hand me downs from the older kids. (I know they aren’t but its nice to pretend.) I love fancy Suri dresses – but not for everyday! A girl’s got to play and jump and run around too!

  10. NotBlonde says:

    Interesting that Angelina and Brad tend to whine about people being intrusive and yet she goes into ridiculous detail about her kid’s security items. Weird.

  11. geronimo says:

    Shiloh’s really grown, almost the same height as Z. She’s gone all leggy! Gorgeous pics, both cute as buttons.

  12. Baholicious says:

    Shiloh looks like a friendly little soul, very cute. Zahara is just hostile looking and I can’t think of anything appealing about that.

  13. prissa says:

    duchess what does: “stop the mommy chop” mean?

  14. tigerlille says:

    Z has the same comfort item as my daughter, the ubiquitous “pink” blanket. I think the little girls like the nubbiness of the texture. When I saw how much my daughter loved hers, I ran out and bought the rest the store had in stock, which was quite affordable since ours came from K-Mart. We lost two when she moved, and I set one aside last year, so that leaves us with three holey, mangy “pink” blankets, which are now an appetizing shade of grey.

    I suspect that Shi’s shoes, at least, are hand me downs from the boys, they look huge, but then what wouldn’t in comparison to Miss Z’s dainty appendages?

    What darling girls, hate for them to be surrounded by photographers, but how nice to see how they are doing.

  15. tigerlille says:

    Oops, when WE moved, not she. Miss that edit button…

  16. Mairead says:

    awww would ye look at the little hooded Aran cardigan!… wouldn’t mind one of them meself!

  17. Lily says:

    precious children….but i really do wish that the paps would leave celebrity kids alone….could do without these photos.

  18. Ash says:

    Shiloh is friggin adorable, oh my God. She actually kind of looks like Lucy From Chronicles of Narnia. She does seem to have a little Brad in her with the eyes and hair, rest all Angie!

  19. Annie says:

    I think I read somewhere that she doesn’t spend an obscene amount of money on her children’s clothes.

    And I think maybe when she did the interview, Z didn’t want it washed?

    All my siblings were like that, we had our blankies and refused to let my poor mother wash them as they just compiled all this dirt.

    I mean, Z’s blanket is definitely no longer pink.

    I know we love to harp on her mothering skills, but she’s doing a much better job than octomom.

  20. Baholicious says:

    Annie, I’m not defending ‘octomom’ however I would certainly expect that AJ is doing a better job: she has a partner, staff, loads of cash and 8 less kids. She also isn’t (as) mentally ill.

    So, it’s not really a fair comparison to make, you know?

  21. YoMomma says:

    Shiloh looks so much like her dad.

  22. jayem says:

    Awwwww… Both of the girls are absolutely adorable, but Shiloh just kills me with that little sweet face. She is gonna be ridiculously gorgeous when she’s older.

    And geez, can the photographers get a little closer?! They’re like three feet away from them! I am so amazed at how calm and unfrightened they are. They even smile for them, like Violet. Unlike Suri, who always looks like she’s about to have a meltdown. I wonder why that is? Personality? Parenting??

  23. Ria says:

    My daughter has a gungunk – a pink silky blanket that is turning grey-ish now. O also went on Ebay and got everyone I could! The maker had discontinued the blanket. Alos, she could be Shiloh’s stand-in! Her hair is fly away and whispy. I comb and use detangler, but I think that hair is common with children who grow hair later.

  24. ; ) says:

    This is what I see. The oscars are coming so lets be spotted and pretend we hate the photographers. We are just too cool. And lets put up Z’s hood so people don’t get on Angelina for not taking care of her hair properly, and last but not least these children need their comfort objects just to go to the store???? Sounds like they are raising extremely insecure children,(no roots) but most of the people on this post have known that for some time now.

  25. Diva says:

    Hmm, who could that post above be??? SURELY not a regular commenter who knows the policy is not changing your name and using aliases!!!!

    *eye roll*

    Shiloh is SOOOO Brad when she smiles big!!!!
    Gorgeous, confident, happy kids!

  26. daisy424 says:

    Beautiful family. Shiloh is the spitting image of Brad. Zahara is a beauty, what a heart-breaker.

    @;), Did you gaze into your crystal ball for your dime store psychology on this family or pull it out of your ass?

  27. Martha S. says:

    I wonder why in most pictures it seems that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt hang out with their adopted kids more than they do their real kids.

  28. Orangejulius says:

    Awww come on. You know somebody would be bitching if it were the other way around and they seemed to be spending more time with their own kids!

  29. Orangejulius says:

    Also, ‘real kids’? Are you implying that the adopted kids aren’t ‘real’?

  30. Blanche says:

    “i really do wish that the paps would leave celebrity kids alone.”

    Please, like Angelina didn’t arrange this photo op.
    Right, whatever.
    *rolling eyes*

    oh, and that real kids vs adopted kids remark is STUPID. Adopted kids ARE real kids.

  31. Annie says:

    True Baho. True.

    Do you love how it’s already turned into “This is a photo op!!”? lol.

    Can’t even take her kids shopping without it being because of some hidden agenda.

  32. mel says:

    it seems like yesterday that shiloh was born. both girls are growing up so fast.

  33. They are just buttons!

  34. I Choose Me says:

    Aww, they are just two gorgeous little girls. Shiloh looks like such a sweetie and Miss Z’s got quite the personality. Love this family.

  35. Judy says:

    Woohoo you can sure see the green eyed monsters in here lol. SHe calls the paps to let them know she is going shopping lol? She is hiding a kids hair when all kids like their hoodies up.? Listen to this kind of crap day in and day out because they wish they looked like AJ and had her money and ehr talent and probably her husband too lol so they have to eye roll and come up with something negative lol these are the women that would bitch if they actually got asked out by someone lol

  36. czarina says:

    I agree some of these posts are desperately nit-picking TRYING to find things to criticize. (If Z’s hood was DOWN surely someone would point out that in February, obviously AJ wasn’t keeping her warm enough…!)
    @Baholiciouis–I don’t think it’s fair to suggest Z is hostile or unappealing–she is a young child with dozens of papparazzi yelling her name and flashing bulbs in her face; she has every right not to be all smiles and charm under those conditions. She isn’t strutting down the runway of a beauty pageant!

  37. Bina says:

    Angelina might want to rethink the “Zizi” nickname. As Maddox will tell her, it’s a nickname for “penis” in French.

  38. Jane says:

    Empress Zahara? Did I miss something?

  39. vixen says:

    Why do some people insist on always throwing a comment out there about people being soooooo jealous of Angelina. In reality no one is.

  40. kelly says:

    i am so sick of brad and angi!! blah blah…kids are cute tho.

  41. FF says:

    Sorry, but I just can’t see anything ‘hostile-looking’ about Z. She’s got the characteristic features of her people and she looks quite regal most of the time (I assume that’s why the ‘Empress Z’ nickname has popped up) and hilarious when she’s joking around.

    Shiloh’s cute, but in that standard way, I’m waiting for her to grow into her features but that’ll probably be a while yet. I think it’s adorable that she’s chewing on that pink silky, though.

    I love both of their outfits though. Smart but durable if they want to start running around.

  42. Blondie says:

    Beautiful little girls ;o)

    Shiloh is absolutely gorg, but with parents such as hers she was never not going to be

  43. Kathi says:

    @mairead: I think it’s the same cardigan Pax wore once , isn’t it?
    Here’s a photo:


  44. geronimo says:

    @kathi – you mean the little jacket shiloh’s wearing? Yeah, looks identical to the one Pax is wearing in the pic although, from the pics, one’s grey, the other’s black. Anyway, if it’s a hand-me-down, the J-P’s are tight-fisted penny-pinchers, if it’s new, they’re reckless spendthrifts. 😛

  45. vixen says:

    I don’t see Shiloh and Zahara are almost the same size becauss if Zahara was standind straight up she’d be way taller.

  46. Lisa says:

    I have to agree, that Zahara kid looks worried most of the time.

    I don’t know, I’m not adopted, but I am someone’s daughter and sister and I have kids of my own. That, plus just being human, tells me I don’t think those adopted kids can ever get past not being Shilo and the other biological kids, and Shilo and the other bios won’t be able to help feeling naturally superior in that respect. It’s human nature. To expect anything other than that from any of them would be foolish.

    Angie may have experience in many aspects of life but not any of us, including she, can ever understand the hubris that turns into humility long after our children are grown and gone.

    Thanks for the useful site

  50. Grag says:

    WOW, its will be funny

  51. randomness says:

    its sad to me to come look at this picture now, one year later and see how much Shiloh has changed and how she’s basically turned into a little boy now it makes me sad!!! i know it’s none of my business and that they can raise their kids however they want and do whatever they want… but i HAVE to wonder if it’s for attention, if this is shiloh’s way of getting attention from her mom and dad who i’m sure made a big fuss about it at first, like i do with my kids, like “Oh! SHiloh, you are so funny wearing Maddox’s shirt! you are just so cute!!!” or “oh, Shiloh! look at you, acting just like your big brothers, you are going to be so big and so strong when you grow up! look how tough you are!!” since we know Angie has her whole thing about being “tough” and how she wanted to act like such a “bada*s” and we all know of her bisexual affairs, so who knows she might even be encouraging all the boy clothes on shiloh and think it’s really cute. I personally don’t think it’s cute at all, it makes me sad….shiloh seriously could have been the cutest damn kid ever. i know there are some of you that still think she is, but sorry, i don’t. now Zahara on the other hand, i totally wastn into her when she was younger but man, as she is growing up and showing more and more personality…that seems like one cute, adorable, spunky, snazzy, funny little girl! she looks like so much fun 🙂
