As the first biological child of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has been in the spotlight since her birth in 2006. Over the years, she has continued to make headlines for her movie star looks.
Her famous parents, who are in the middle of a divorce, have been very open about letting her be who she wants to be. “I think she is fascinating, the choices she is making,” Angelina told Reuters when Shiloh was just four years old. "And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting." Keep reading for everything you need to know about the pre-teen.
Shiloh is the perfect mixture of her famous parents — with piercing blue eyes, a beaming smile, and a gorgeous head of blonde hair. The preteen recently hit the red carpet with her famous mama and sister Zahara, happily posing for the camera at the premiere of The Breadwinner in Los Angeles.

Just like her older sister Zahara, Shiloh was born in Africa. "I went to a hospital in Namibia, where I was having my daughter, and I was in breech," Angelina told the BBC. "I needed a C-section, and I knew I was in breech because I had had the money to have an ultrasound. But I found even the local hospital with many, many people, many women — and this was a good hospital — did not have an ultrasound machine." She continued, "I know there are many extraordinary people who are working on this and women’s health around the world, and many groups dedicated solely to that, and their work is so needed and these solutions can come.”

Shiloh is smack dad in the middle of her siblings. She has older brothers Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, older sister Zahara, 12, and younger siblings, twins Knox and Vivienne, both 9.
On recent red carpets, Shiloh has stepped out wearing suits, unlike her sisters Zahara and Vivienne, who prefer to wear dresses. "She wants to be a boy," Angelina told Vanity Fair in 2010. "So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers." Brad previously told Oprah Winfrey that she preferred to go by John when she was two years old. “She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it’s a Peter Pan thing,” he said. “So we’ve got to call her John. ‘Shi, do you want...’ - ‘John. I’m John.’ And then I’ll say, ‘John, would you like some orange juice?’ And she goes, ‘No!’ So, you know, it’s just that kind of stuff that’s cute to parents and it’s probably really obnoxious to other people.”
While three out of the six Jolie-Pitt kids are adopted, Shiloh is not one of them. She is the first biological child for Brad and Angelina. At the time of her birth, the couple was already parents to adopted children Maddox and Zahara.
