Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s kids are growing so fast! The youngest of them all, twins Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, turned seven recently and hit the ice to celebrate with their family on Sunday (July 12) at a skating rink. Along with older siblings Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, and nine-year-old Shiloh, the famous family beamed as they were spotted leaving Iceland Ice Skating Center in suburban Los Angeles.
“They rented a bus and headed for an afternoon of ice-skating,” an eye witness told Us Weekly, adding that the brood were also joined by some of the twins’ friends. “Knox and Viv were bundled up with snow hats and mittens. They were really excited about it.
“Everyone skated for about two hours and they tried out special bumper cars on the ice,” the onlooker added. “They were spinning around getting dizzy and had a blast. Some of the kids were holding hands as they skated and it was really sweet.” The children were “wiped out” as they got back on the bus to go home.
Despite being her tender age, little Vivienne already seems to be following in her famous mum’s footsteps. While Zahara and Pax had small walk-on parts in Angelina’s 2014 film Maleficent, Vivienne had a larger role as the young Princess Aurora.
“It had to be Viv," Angelina later explained to Entertainment Weekly. "The other three and four-year-old (actors) wouldn’t come near me. It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns and my eyes and my claws… When Pax saw me for the first time, he ran away and got upset."
Mother and daughter do have an especially close bond; Vivienne also likes to follow Angelina around. “She’s always that kid, she’s that little girl,” the Oscar winner told E! News last year. “We call her my shadow at home… The other kids are starting to get a little irritated about it!”
