Celebrities And Their Adopted Kids

Angelina Jolie | Maddox, Zahara & Pax

Jolie, of course, deserves a special degree of acclaim! This bombshell is a force of nature when it comes to activism for human rights. She worked for about two decades in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as a Goodwill Ambassador and Special Envoy.

Although an awardee of many accolades, we all know what her real pride and joy is — and that is her family. Along with all her humanitarian work, she was able to adopt her first son, Maddox, from a Cambodian orphanage — shortly after filming Tomb Raider. Next was her daughter Zahara, whom she met at an Ethiopian orphanage. Shortly after the birth of her daughter Shiloh (with her ex-beau Brad Pitt), she adopted Pax when he was a toddler at a Vietnam orphanage. Now, they are all grown up and forging their own path, with Jolie supporting them all the way!
