Angelina Jolie recently opened up about her relationship with Brad Pitt and their children, while also revealing that they have not ruled out having more kids.
The 36-year-old director of "In the Land of Blood and Honey" said that the couple could eventually start trying for another baby. "Nothing planned at the moment, but we just don't know. I could end up pregnant," Jolie said.
Speaking with Chris Connelly of “Marie Claire,” the actress opened up about her relationship with partner Brad Pitt and their six children. Jolie and Pitt have always been open about marriage not being a priority in their relationship, but that does not mean the couple's love for one another is not strong.
"[Brad] has expanded my life in ways I never imagined," she told Marie Claire. "We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family. I hold that very dear,” Jolie gushed.
Jolie met Pitt, 47, in 2005 on the set of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" and have been together ever since.
"I suppose what I've learned from Brad is to be able to have the kind of family whose happiness and well-being comes before your own...I'm very, very grateful to have such a loving family, and I wouldn't have that without him," Jolie added.
The pair has three biological children: twins Vivienne and Knox, and Shiloh, plus three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara.
She described their personality traits: of Shiloh, 5, she said, "She doesn't want to learn about the brakes. She just wants to go! It's the combination of the two of us."
Speaking of her 6-year-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara, she said, "She's begun horseback riding. She has found her thing."
Jolie described 10-year-old Maddox as affectionate and caring. "'He really does take care of me. He will hold my hand and say, "Are you feeling tired? Is that why you are upset?" she said.
Vivienne, 3, is said to be extremely girly, while her twin brother Knox was described as a stereotypical boy. "He loves dinosaurs and swords," Jolie said.
The actress revealed that her children would love to see her and Pitt married, and suggested marriage gives children a sense validation and stability.
"If you take it in an emotional way, you think, Ohhh, the children! They don’t feel secure enough," Jolie said.
"If they see Mommy and Daddy in need of some private time ’cause they’re going to kiss and whatever, the kids get all giggly and happy. Because it gives them some security," she added.
