The Super-Mom turns
31 32 today! [Thanks to all the commenters who pointed this out, and no thanks at all to Wikipedia for lying to me.]
To celebrate, she’s talking to Marie Claire about how hard it is to find time to have sex with Brad Pitt while they’re raising four children together.
“Mommy and Daddy need to try to figure out more time right now.” Juggling her clan is not easy, she confides to the magazine. “Everybody needs individual time. Shiloh has our attention when the others are at school. Mad [her son Maddox] stays up the latest, so he gets the nighttime. During the day, I’ll go for a walk or do something specific with Pax or Z [Zahara] . . . We’re working on it; we’re working on it. Right now, we’re not great about Mommy-and-Daddy time.”
Happy birthday, Angie!

Have you ever wanted to go inside Shiloh’s world? Well now you can. Because US Weekly has that story covered. That’s a cute kid, and I’m pretty sure her eyes would be called “piercing” although that could be CGI.
Now, I don’t know what the story will be about, but I can only assume it will be something like what milk tastes like and how silly adults can be.
The less cute, and more alarming news, is that Brittany Murphy seems to be married to a con man. I hope someone alerts her.

The always loquacious Angelina Jolie sat down with Reader’s Digest for a face-to-face. As in any real Jolie interview, it’s almost impossible to select a few choice quotes — they’re all great. You can read the full interview here, but here are some highlights.
On whether her pregnancy with Shiloh was intentional:
It was. Before I met Brad, I always said I was happy never to have a child biologically. He told me he hadn’t given up that thought. Then, a few months after Z came home, I saw Brad with her and Mad, and I realized how much he loved them, that a biological child would not in any way be a threat. So I said, “I want to try.”
Pax is almost three and a half and has never made a real decision for himself because everybody does everything in a group in the orphanage. There were all these things he’d never had. The first time I gave him a bath, he was suddenly laughing, out of his mind. He took five baths in one day. We’d be talking and he’d take his clothes off and run into the bathroom.
The first two days, he cried a lot. I hired a translator, and he would explain what was going on. The first night, I slept alone with him. I was expecting him to wake up and scream, but he woke and just stared at me. I handed him a stuffed animal, and we walked around the room pointing at things. By day three, he didn’t want me to put him down. I think he got used to the reality that somebody loves you and that’s what a mommy is.
Rest of the highlights are after the jump.

It’s official. The Mama Jolie roller coast has reached its pinnacle and now it must swoop down into darkness. Why says so? Why US Weekly does! Page Six (ty nine) says:
Sources say Us Weekly, Star and other celebrity weeklies are so fed up with getting scooped by People, they’ve turned on Jolie and Brad Pitt with a vengeance.
I agree. Fuck People Mag right in their ear. If I ever see one of those bastards on the street I will be on them like a hurricane of nails and teeth. And elbows. Anywhoo, all of this comes on the fall-out from the notion that Jolie might adopt another kid, this time from Chad. Here’s why:
Jolie herself recently said, “Should you balance the races, so there’s another African person in the house for Zahara, after another Asian person in the house for Mad? We think so.”
Umm… what? No seriously, what does that even mean? Are all African people like each other, and thus relate better to other people who look like them? To me this flies in the face of everything Jolie was trying to do, if Asians now need be purchased in pairs it sort of defeats this whole “one world” theme she’s jockeying for.
I rarely go after Jolie, but that’s a dumb quote. I hope someone made that up.

We’re on day five of PaxWatch here on the Internets, and we’ve got yet another picture of little Paxy being held by his mom. The two are in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, where they will hopefully obtain Pax’s visa at the U.S. Embassy on Tuesday. Reports indicate that three-year-old Pax is having some trouble adjusting. He was not told that he was being adopted until the actual day that Angie and Madd came to get him — as Celebitchy points out, this is probably standard procedure at an orphanage, so that the kids don’t get their hopes up if the ‘rents flake last-minute — so he’s in an understandable state of shock right now, and doing an awful lot of crying.
Angelina has been very attentive to her new kiddo. According to the AP’s translation of a Vietnamese newspaper, Angie said that she “will stay at home to help Pax adjust to his new life,” and that “photographs and press coverage will make him upset. I’m very worried about that. I would like to say I’m sorry for bringing this into Pax’s life.” When I first read that quote a couple days ago I didn’t run it, because it didn’t sound at all like something Angelina would say. But now I understand — Angie said it in English, the Vietnamese paper translated it into Vietnamese, and then the AP translated it back into English. She probably said something more along the lines of “I wish you assholes would stop scaring this poor innocent boy that I’m trying to bring into my family,” but, you know, nicer. It got trampled in the translation.
Once the visa process is completed, Angie, Madd and Pax will return to New Orleans to meet up with the rest of the Jolie-Pitt gang.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have added yet another gorgeous child to their brood. Pham Quang Sang’s (first kid in the pic) adoption was made official today. Maddox and Angelina went to pick up the child who is now named Pax Thien Jolie.
I really feel like Angelina has a sixth sense about these children. Maddox is on his way to be such a cutie and Baby Z is gorgeous. I’m so excited for the new family photos.
I find it a bit weird that they have joked about “adopting enough kids for a soccer team” but if they have the money and the love it is amazing that these kids will have a loving home.
