While the couple applied for adoption together, Jolie raised Maddox as a single mom. Pitt would officially adopt him in early 2006.
Pitt then accompanied Jolie to Ethiopia to adopt Zahara in 2005, and he legally adopted their two children the following year. In 2006, the Oscar winners welcomed Shiloh together, and in 2007 they adopted Pax from Vietnam. A year later, Jolie gave birth to her twins, Knox and Vivienne.
Pitt and Jolie have six children, three of whom were adopted, and three biological children.
