Far out, where does time go? Seems like yesterday that Angelina was a single mom and Maddox was a gorgeous toddler with a blue mohawk. How can he be 8 already??!!
These two have always seemed to have a special relationship together. Great to see that even with lots of bros and sisters now, he still gets one-on-one time with his mom.

Love Maddox!

kai on

I also didn’t realize he’s 8 already. I forgot how young she was when she adopted him. I’ll always think of this one photoshoot , the two of them in bed, both with their arms behind their heads. so lovely!

Shannon on

I love them!

Jenny on

Love to see them spending time one on one again.

Anyone else think Angie looks scary skinny? Her legs are like twigs.

Annielicious on

Wow! They grow so fast!! Good Job A and B!

sil on

yes Jenny, I also think she looks too skinny…

rubi on

It seems like yesterday that it was just the two of them taking a walk around Central Park NY. Maddox is such a rock star with his sun glasses. Angie looks beautiful as always.

Angelina has always has this body type! If you look at old photos her arms and legs have always been this size.

She is not scary skinny, but people always need to comment

V on

Just because “her arms and legs have always been this size” does not mean Angelina’s not scary skinny. She most definitely is.

Maddox was the celebrity baby that got me interested on this website. He’s so cute and I love seeing pictures of his family but particularly his. What a big little man!

On another note, why is it okay to comment when people are “scary skinny” and not “scary fat”?

Philippa on

I can’t believe how much he has grown and that he’s nearly 8 already! Seems like only yesterday that Angelina adopted him.

M on

I hate when people comment about other peoples weight,I think it is rude.

It is her natural body type! She has very long legs and arms, and if you have seen old photos of her mother, you would see she was the same.

Ella on

wow, Maddox has gotten SO big, can’t believe how fast time flies!

Bancie1031 on

Maddox has gotten really tall ….. Angie and Mad both look great …. I miss seeing this family

casssie on

Angie is skinny today she was skinny last year she was skinny 10 years ago. The only time she wasn’t skinny was pregnant and post pregnant and training for Tomb Raider.

Lola Marie on

Living the hectic life she lives: working, traveling and the mom of 6 kids under 8. We’d all be that skinny if we were ALWAYS so busy. It has to get stressfull at times.

rachelsun on

Well said Cassie!

Maddox is growing into a nice looking young man. Time does fly. He is not a baby any more.

Amanda on

Thank you Casssie! The way people go on, if they saw a picture of me, they’d probably call me a prime heifer! With the amount of work she gets through, plus her six kids, she’s hardly gonna be obese, is she?

But seriously, who cares when faced with the adorableness that is Maddox?! He’s grown from an impossibly cute baby -> toddler -> pre-schooler into this handsome young boy who’s had a massive growth spurt. And the way he’s rocking those sunglasses with such confidence and displaying such calmness in front of the paparazzi, it’s clear that Angelina (and Brad) have done a great job.

Also, I love to see that despite the 5 siblings, he gets alone time with Mum. That must be precious and special for them both since not so long ago, it was just the two of them.

Minka on

Angelina does look thinner than she did just last month, maybe it’s because she’s no longer training for the action film she was making. I think a little weight made her look healthier then.

Maddox is certainly looking quite tall. I really like his sunglasses.

Terri on

Angelina looks great. I want to see the twins!

Jane on

He grow up so fast! I’m so happy that now Maddox has a father.

VEO on

I find it interesting that Maddox has always seemed to have his own style, whereas the rest of the kids get hand-me-downs and clothes that lack design and color.

CelebBabyLover on

V- Unless you are Angelina’s doctor, you have no idea if she is “scary skinny” or not. What is “scary skinny” on one person isn’t neccesarily “scary skinny” on another person.

…, Amanda, Cassie, and M- I agree. This is just Angie’s natural body type. As Cassie said, the only times Angie hasn’t been skinny like this are when she was pregnant (and even then, as someone pointed out on another blog I frequent, she pretty much only grew straight out. She didn’t really gain weight in her arms and legs. This led to some ridiculious accusations during her pregnancy with Shiloh that she was depriving her baby of essential nutrients!) and when she undertook special training to bulk up for the Tomb Raider Movies.

The only time she really has looked “scary skinny” was in 2007. As she herself said, that was because her mother had just passed away and she was grieving. It’s not at all unusual for people to lose weight when they are going through a tough time like that, and of all the reasons for losing weight (when you don’t really need to, I mean), grief is definently a very understandable one!

Anyway, Maddox is a cutie, and I can’t believe he’s almost 8!

so cute! maddox is so big

CelebBabyLover on

VEO- Well, most of those hand-me downs where Maddox’s clothes at one point. Also, Z certainly has her own style, too! For most of last year, for example, she seemed to be on a “pink” kick. Now she seems to be on a “purple” kick, as she was seen wearing a purple dress while shopping with Angie, Brad, and Shi in late April, a purple shirt while going to dance class with Angie and Shi just a few weeks ago, and another purple shirt (which may even be the same one she wore to the dance class) while flying with Angie and Shi just last week!

Also, Shi was seen wearing a series of cute white dresses last spring and summer.🙂

CelebBabyLover on

Oh, and the other kids probably love getting hand-me-downs! That’s just one of the fun experiences of growing up with older siblings (I have an older sibling, so I know from personal experience!)!🙂
