Say Hello To Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt and Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt

January 20th, 2006 // 16 Comments

Got that?

Brad Pitt, 42 is a father — by name, at least! This morning Judge Linda K. Lefkowitz granted the petition to change the names of Angelina Jolie‘s, 30, two children to Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt and Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt at the Los Angeles Superior Court West, Santa Monica. ‘I see no reason not to grant the name change,’ Lefkowitz told the court. Jolie’s attorney Evan Spiegel of Lavely and Singer also confirmed the official name change to Us. Jolie filed the petition for name change on December 2, 2OO5 on behalf of her two minor children. Pitt’s petition to become the children’s adoptive father still awaits court approval. Pitt and Jolie are expecting their first biological child later this year.

    Jennifer Anniston said Brad was lacking a sensitivity chip, and some! Isn’t this all just a bit fast for such a huge commitment. Adopted children have enough to deal with without Brad deciding that this one ain’t forever either.

    I’m so confused.

    Do these people live in some bizarro world where everything is done backwards??

    In the real world, don’t you DIVORCE your wife, then MARRY your lover, then IMPREGNATE her?? In Jolie-Pitt world, Impregnate (we’ve done the math), Divorce, Marry.

    In the non-Brangelina world, you MARRY your lover with kids, you legally ADOPT the kids, then you CHANGE the kids’ names. In the Jolie-Pitt PR-ruled world, changing the kid’s names makes Brad a dad. I realize he’s petitioned for adoption but it’s all about how it looks.

    I’m surprised we don’t have a photo of Angelina lugging Zahara with her maternal smile (someone give her a stroller at her baby shower) with Maddox scampering about in the background with Brad as the judge signs the petiton for the name change.

  3. all i can see is that Jenifer Aniston is loved by a lot of people. there is no good girl or bad girl. there is the choices of a man. He have chosen to love and have those kids in his life. And, sorry if he’s not in that “best couple in the world” thind anymore. he have chosen the real life that Angelina is bringing to him. We all have to hope that hapiness will be in that family. And for Jenifer Aniston, she is with Vince Vaughn now, what about him?

    i just think its a big commitment on Brad’s part, those kids are his now-legally binded-and he will always be there dad-its a huge responsibility and i think they shouldn’t have rushed into another baby. Its reported that he always wanted kids but wow! talk about moving in fast and furious – i didnt know men have a biological clock aswell!

    in the space of a year Brad has gone from a divorced “single” man to a father of 3 – whether or not Angelina and him will last is now beside the point, there are babies involved now who rely on these two as their mum and dad, i hope for the Pitt families sake it lasts and they are all happy.

    My concern was for the children too, particularly the children he is adopting. I hope they are all very happy and Brad never says again that thing he said about not being able to say ‘forever’ about someone. They don’t either of them have a very promising record thus far, but I know nothing about them though. Maybe, and hopefully, Angelina is ‘the one’.

    finally, he has the blonde hair again. looking much better.

    I think this thing between Angelina and Brad is utterly ridiculous. These are children we are talking about, it’s not flavor of the month. If Brad is so loving and caring, why in the world would he do the things he did while still married to Jennifer Aniston. “He was never unfaithful to his wife”, please!! He is just liar. If he did it Jennifer, what makes Angelina think he won’t do it to her and this time kids are involved. I realize that he and Jen are divorced and doesn’t owe an explination to her. But, show a little sensitivity here. They were man and wife for 4 years, can he not show a little respect for her by at least waiting a while. I can only imagine the sick feeling she has right now reading about all the gory details of Brad’s life. She may be a celebrity but she is human. I feel horrible for her.

  8. Leave Brad Alone

    I LOVE BRAD! I LOVE ANGELINA! LET THEM DO WHAT THEY WANT. TEHY ARE GORGEOUS. GET OVER UGLY JENNIFER! IT IS OOOOOOVER. STOP WHINING. BRAD CAN DO WAHT HE WANTS. HE IS A FREE MAN. THAT MARRIAGE PROBABLY ENDED WAY BEFORE THEY SEPARATED AND HE WAS JUST BEING PATIENT WITH UGLY FACE. HE DID NOTHING WRONG. HE SEPARATED FROM JENNIFER THEN DIVORCED. ONCE SEPARATED AND NOT LIVING UNDER THE SAME ROOF – PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO DO WHAT THEY WANT. BESIDE, ANGELINA IS A FREAKIN’ GODDESS. HOW CAN HE RESIST? I LOVE YOU BRAD! YOU CUTIE PIE YOU. SHOOT, JENNIFER SHOULD OF CONSIDERED HERSELF LUCKY THAT BRAD EVEN TOUCHED THAT!

  9. Have you noticed that when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are photographed together, he’s usually about 2 steps behind her? Need I say more?

  10. So?

    Louise, you are a ditz! Of course, he is two steps behind her – she is the DIVA! A gorgeous woman like that – you walk ten steps behind her. Angie is my favorite actress.

  11. Tired of it all

    I think it is ridiculous that we all spend our lives hinged on watching these people, insulting them, getting angry with them and being so concerned about their right and wrong choices. They are human beings- they try and fail and try again… Frankly, When it comes to Jen and Brad there was talk for YEARS by even their close friends that the whole happy marriage thing was ALL for show after about a year. Brad and Jen were far from happy. She was paranoid and jealous, he was trying to get her to believe he loved her. He had his life and movies and she had her show Friends. When that ended she lost it!!! I feel sorry for her a bit but, really get a grip or a good therapist(she can afford one). After a while he didn’t care anymore. Who would?? He made it clear he wanted kids for quite a while and she didn’t want to end/jeopardize her career(she doesn’t even have one anymore does she)? , then looked around and realized there was something wrong with the world, that the Hollywood hype wasn’t enough. He met Angelina and it all made sense.. a woman who loved children and is trying to make the world a better place.He and Angelina are happy, their children seem happy and well adjusted. They all three have histories and none are perfect. Let them have their little piece of happiness that everyone (including most of the rich and famous)deserve and give them some damn privacy(being famous doesn’t make your every move open to trash talk and judgement)!! Get some class people and wish them well.. If it doesn’t last then they’ll be judged as another Hollywood screwed up statistic and if it does they’ll still be judged and ridiculed!! On top of everything, Jen is probably going to run out and get pregnant just because she can and that will be a mess for her to say the least. Brad doesn’t owe her anything!! Not an explanation, not I’m sorry nothing. It’s over and done!! How petty we are. Brad and Angelina and their family are blessed, leave it at that!!!

    I JUST LOVE CUTIE LITTLE MADDOX. HE’S FUTURE IS GOOD AND SO LONG AS BRAD AND ANGELINA’S DECISION IS FOR THIS CHILD’S HAPPINESS, TO HELL WITH EVERYBODY WHO’S AGAINTS IT.

  13. gossip or reality?

    It’s strange that some people are so upset with Brad and Angelina. Who cares what they do as long as they are responsible! They seem to love their children and each other very much and are taking steps to guarantee that their children are well taken care of in case something should happen to them or to their relationship. That is more than what a lot of people do for their own children! We judge people based on what we read in gossip mags but we do not know what really happens behind closed doors. Yes, it must be devasting for Jennifer Aniston to see her ex be so happy with someone else so soon. At least that is what we are made to believe. However, what we hear comes for the same gossip sources. For all we know, she is fine! That said, I feel sad for Jennifer and if I was in her shoes, I would be in a terrible state. None the less, we hope she has enough support from her friends and family to get through her personal challenges and just leave it at that. We will never know what happened between Brad and Jennifer because we are not them or their friends or family who they confide in. So judging them or their new relationhips with other people based on gossip is a little scary, don’t you think?

    Best of luck to Jennifer and to the Jolie-Pitt clan!

  14. stop saying bad comments about brad and angilina,cant you see that they madly inlove with each other!hope that they last forever coz their just too perfect couple,a destiny for each other that finally meet.
