From getting abandoned by the mother at an early age to perceive Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as his parents, Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt is undoubtedly one lucky guy.
Vietnamese native Pax is best known as the non-biological son of Hollywood movie legends, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. After adoption, his surname legally changed to Jolie-Pitt, and his given name "Pax Thien" means peaceful sky.
Biological Mother Abandoned Him After Two Days Of Birth
Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt’s biological mother is Pham Thu Dung. His mother, Pham was a heroin-addict and left Pax two days after his birth after knowing her son’s liver problem with the medical treatment cost of £15. He was later raised in an orphanage named Tam Binh Orphan Center.
Similarly, during the same time, Angelina Jolie was also searching for a healthy orphan boy between 3 to 5 age for adoption in Tam Binh, and luckily Pax met the standards. Pax got Angelina and Brad as his parents as they legally adopted him in March 2007.
The mother-son duo had also graced the 75th Golden Globe Awards in 2018. Pax shared the glimpses of attending the GGA red carpet on his social media page on 8 January 2018.

However, his non-biological parents, Angelina and Brad separated ways in September 2016.
The couple‘s custody battle ended for a short term in an amicable agreement in August 2018. Brad was accused of not paying for the child support and Angelina’s “anger” seemed evident. They have reportedly agreed to a custody arrangement and would reevaluate their situation in one month outside the court and would not need any hearing. Angelina reportedly has preserved her primary custody rights, and Brad gets visitation rights.
After the much-controversial custody issue, Angelina was seen hiking along with her children on 3 September 2018. She is also assisting her kids to restore the relationship and encourage them to see their father amidst fear that she might jeopardize losing primary physical keeping to her ex.
In December 2018, Pax's mother, Angelina Jolie, who was facing divorce case with husband, Brad, confirmed with Hindustan Times that his father, Brad never wanted to adopt him. His mother told with an interviewer;
"He has accepted that he will likely never be able to repair their relationship,"
The source claimed that Brad was not in good terms with his sons Maddox and Pax Thien. However, Pax is in a good term with his mother and rejoicing a healthy relationship. In November 2018, his brother, Maddox alongside his mother fled to South Korea for a college tour.
After several months of separation, his parent's divorce has reportedly official. After a long court battle negotiating their divorce and the custody of their six kids appealing a bifurcated judgment in 2018, Elite Daily has finally confirmed that their divorce got finalized on 12 April 2019. And the most tragic part was, Pax's mother Angelina has changed her name after the divorce.
Five Siblings: Three Were Adopted Child
Pax shares an undeniable bond with his five siblings. Zahara Marley and Maddox Chivan are his adopted siblings. While, Shiloh Nouvel and his twin siblings, Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline are the biological children of Angelina and Brad.
His eldest brother, Maddox was chosen from a Cambodia’s orphanage home in 2002. Maddox was seven months old when Angelina tried to adopt him with her then-husband, Billy Bob Thornton. However, the US government opposed the native American to take children from Cambodia. Later, after separating ways with Billy, Angelina embraced Maddox as part of the family.
Just a couple of year apart, Angelina and Brad adopted another six-month-old orphan named Zahara Marley from Ethiopia. Zahara biological mother, Mentwabe Dawit on her 2007 interview for The Associated Press told that she was unable to feed her daughter after her daughter was conceived during a rape.
After two adoptions, Angelina and Brad delivered their first biological child, Shiloh Nouvel, in 2006.
