So it’s been five good years, how time flies, of Angelina Jolie taking custody of their six children, Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 12 and honestly we think she couldn’t have done a better job, I mean who would believe the Mr and Mrs Smith star will turn out to be a mother of six. Thankfully her kids are all grown now so she can get all the help she needed.
Speaking with British Vogue, Jolie opens up on her struggle with motherhood after the split with Brad says it is “really hard” but she is “focus on healing” her family.
About if she is in a happy stage of life, the 45 years old Hollywood actress said 

“I don’t know. I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body.”

She believes the best is yet to come but excited about getting older and the fact that her children are becoming protective of her well-being she said jokingly 

“I feel that I’m gonna hit my stride in my 50s. Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, ‘No, Mom, don’t do that. You’ll hurt yourself.’ And I thought, ‘God, isn’t that funny?’ There was a day I was an action star, and now the kids are telling me to get off the trampoline because I’ll hurt myself.”

The Academy Award winner said she never visioned herself as a stay at home mum but that has been the reality of her life. The post-breakup and the COVID-19 lockdown did reveal her vulnerability which she shares with the British Vogue she said 

“I was never very good at sitting still. Even though I wanted to have many children and be a mom, I always imagined it kind of like Jane Goodall, travelling in the middle of the jungle somewhere. I didn’t imagine it in that true, traditional sense.”
“I feel like I’m lacking in all the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mom.”

When you did a good job training your children they cover your lapses in due time, right?

“I’m managing through it because the children are quite resilient, and they’re helping me, but I’m not good at it at all. They’re helping me, but I’m not good at it at all.”

According to Jolie, her silent over the years about the divorce with Brad has taken a toll on their kids as sometimes the kids read some false story about themselves published by the media but it appears she has done a wonderful job prepping them for the spotlight. 

“Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds.”
