Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s children are learning French.
The Hollywood couple – who raise children Maddox, nine, Pax, six, Zahara, five, Shiloh, four, and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, together – are keen for their offspring to embrace the European language to help them understand why the country is important to their family.
Angelina – whose late mother Marcheline Bertrand was of French Canadian descent – explained to BANG Showbiz: “Right now they’re in the French programme and they’re doing very well. We want them to learn French and speak French because of our heritage.”
As well as Angelina’s beloved mother, France is special to the couple for other reasons, and was chosen to be the birthplace of their twin babies Knox and Vivienne.
The 35-year-old beauty gave birth to the tots at the Lenval hospital in nice, France in 2008.
Angelina was speaking at the gala premiere of ‘Salt’ at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square last night (16.08.10), where she looked stunning as she greeted hundreds of screaming fans.
She said: “I always enjoy London and this is amazing. It means so much when everybody comes out.”
The screen beauty also revealed she had brought her two youngest children with her while Brad looked after the eldest four at home.
She added: “I brought the babies. I’m having some special baby time.”
