Shiloh Jolie-Pitt is the first biological child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, two of the biggest stars on the planet. What’s it like to grow up in the world’s most famous household?
Let’s take a trip down memory lane.
She made a high-profile debut
Shiloh made a very high-profile debut in June 2006 when the first official photos of her were splashed across the pages of People magazine and the London-based Hello!.
According to The New York Times, People reportedly paid a record-setting $4.1 million for the photos. However, the magazine has disputed this. The money from the sale was said to be donated to charity.
Shiloh was born in Africa
Shiloh was born on May 27, 2006, in Namibia, where her parents had flown to avoid the paparazzi, according to the Associated Press. While Jolie and Pitt were there, Namibia reportedly “put tight security around their hotel and the hospital, set up large green barriers to protect their privacy from photographers and refused to grant visas to any foreign journalists unless they had written permission from Jolie and Pitt to cover the birth.” Police also “arrested photographers and confiscated film.”
“Angie and baby are fantastic,” a source told People magazine after Jolie had given birth. “Brad was at her side during the birth.” The report added that Shiloh was born at The Cottage Hospital in Swakopmund.
