Angelina Jolie actually never wanted to have kids

How could Angelina Jolie never not want to be a mum?

These days we rarely seem to ever see Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt without their seven-member kid squad team at their side. There’s the eldest, Maddox, then Zahara, Pax, then Shiloh, who’s becoming quite the tomboy by the way, and then Shiloh's doppelgangers, the twins Vivien and Knox. 


It’s hard to even imagine a time when Ange and Brad weren’t parents. But this week, Ange admitted she once never even wanted kids. She spoke to the Associated Press about it.

'It's strange, I never wanted to have a baby. I never wanted to be pregnant. I never babysat. I never thought of myself as a mother.”

But all that changed after a trip to Cambodia while shooting Tomb Raider in 2000.


According to Ange, it was while she was playing with children at a school when it because “suddenly very clear to me that my son was in the country, somewhere.” Two years later she adopted Maddox and well, you know the rest.
