Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s first biological child, celebrates her sixth birthday.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt was born on May 27, 2006, at the Cottage Medi-Clinic Hospital in Swakopmund, Namibia. Since her birth, Angelina Jolie has had two other children, Knox and Vivienne, and the celebrity couple have also adopted three children; Maddox, Pax, and Zahara.
The birth of Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt made headlines in 2006, and was easily the most anticipated–and widely covered–birth of the year.
Shortly after her birth, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt sold the first pictures of baby Shiloh for a record-breaking $4.1 million to People magazine.
Shiloh may be only six, but Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s oldest daughter has already developed her own sense of style. Her mom describes her as being a bit of a tomboy, with Shiloh preferring to wear boy’s clothes, including suits.
“I think she [Shiloh] is fascinating, the choices she is making,” Angelina Jolie said in a 2010 interview of Shiloh’s sense of style.
“And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting…
“Children should be allowed to express themselves in whatever way they wish without anybody judging them because it is an important part of their growth. Society always has something to learn when it comes to the way we judge each other, label each other. We have far to go.”
