Not long now! Angelina Jolie was spotted with two of her kids, Zahara and Shiloh, at The Grove Mall in Los Angeles on Sunday, December 22, to do some last-minute Christmas shopping. The smiling trio stopped at Barnes and Noble, the farmer’s market and Starbucks for some hot chocolate.
It seems like the Maleficent actress is getting in some quality time with Shiloh before she spends Christmas Eve with her dad, Brad Pitt. A source told In Touch the A-lister is “really looking forward to Christmas Eve” with the kids he shares with his ex-wife. “Talk about water under the bridge,” the insider dished. “It looks like Brad and Angie are finally setting aside their baggage so that some of the kids can spend Christmas time with dad. Brad’s getting Shiloh and the twins, Knox and Vivienne for part of the holiday.”
Angelina, 44, filed for divorce from Brad, 56, in September 2016 after two years of marriage and more than 10 years together. Since then, the duo has been involved in a lengthy custody battle, which meant holiday plans could have been up in the air for the Fight Club star.
“Brad’s been very patient, he’ll take whatever he can get,” the source continued. “The younger kids are so grown up already. Christmas Eve with them will be an amazing test, and he’s hoping they go back to their mom with some great memories. And the other good news is that it won’t be monitored by the courts, so just Brad and the kids, just like the old days.”
During an interview with Harper’s BAZAAR in November, Angelina admitted her kids — Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and Vivienne and Knox, 11 — have had it rough. “They have been through a lot. I learn from their strength,” the brunette beauty shared with the outlet. “As parents, we encourage our kids to embrace all that they are, and all that they know in their hearts to be right, and they look back at us and want the same for us.”
She added that her brood even helped her rediscover herself. “The part of us that is free, wild, open, curious can get shut down by life. By pain or by harm,” she gushed. “My children know my true self, and they have helped me to find it again and to embrace it.”
Here’s hoping the kiddos enjoy the holiday season, whether they’re with mom or dad. Keep scrolling to see photos of Angelina, Zahara and Shiloh’s day out!
