Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have occasionally offered insights on their six children through the years. But while Angelina and Brad don’t distinguish between their adopted and biological offspring when discussing Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 11, along with nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, outsiders have occasionally commented on the similarities between Jolie and her biological kids. Now, as Brangelina’s brood grows older, some are referring to Knox and Shiloh’s noticeable similarity not to Angelina but to Brad. As far as Twitter is concerned, however, all of Brangelina’s brood deserve cheers, with the social media platform going wild over a recent outing involving Jolie and her kids.
Jolie is known for her beauty, while Pitt reigned as People magazine’s “handsomest man alive” in 1995 and 2000. Consequently, as the Mirror pointed out, with such famously “stunning” individuals as their parents, Brad and Angelina’s children were “bound to be beautiful.” The Mirror also singled out which of the six youngsters look like the actor.
“In recent pictures of the celebrity brood, two of the children look to be the spitting double of their dad. Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old Knox look just like the handsome actor.”
While Jolie has frequently been seen on outings with one or two of the children, the newest photos that resulted in comparing Brad to Knox and Shiloh took place when Angelina took her entire flock to Disneyland to celebrate the twins’ ninth birthday.
Jolie’s goal was to provide Knox and Vivienne with a magical birthday, but Entertainment Tonight noted that as far as Twitter was concerned, the magic revolved around seeing any and all sightings of Angelina and her flock. ET summed up what happened.
“Angelina Jolie Celebrates Vivienne & Knox’s 9th Birthday at Disneyland, Fans Freak Out on Twitter.”
Twitter users couldn’t stop gushing about seeing the famous mom and some of her children.

During Jolie’s visit to the famous attraction with Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and birthday kids Knox and Vivienne, fans saw them spending time around Paradise Pier in California Adventure and enjoying the Mad Tea Party attraction. One observer told ET about the thrill of seeing Angelina up close and personal.
“Such an ecstatic moment! I mean seeing her in person was amazing –so surreal.”
Some Twitter fans seemed to be spending more time chronicling sightings of Jolie and her children than in enjoying the sights at the park.
“Day made we just saw Angelina Jolie on the Teacups ride and she waved hello!” gushed one Twitter user.
Although Angelina chose to go for a low-key, conservative style, sporting a black tank top and pants with beige sandals and completing the casual chic with a wide-brimmed white sun hat and dark shades, fans reported sightings at every part of the park. The group also was spotted amid California Adventure, where they took in the scenery on the boardwalk.
In Disneyland, Brangelina’s brood was seen boarding some of the parks’ iconic rides. But for fans, the appeal was all about seeing the group in person, with some even capturing footage of the flock.

Jolie is a famous actress, but as far as Twitter is concerned, she also rocks when it comes to parenting. Angelina won praise from Twitter users for her role as a mom.
“She’s the best mom ever,” tweeted one fan.
But there’s always a skeptic in the crowd. Some turned to Twitter to insist that the entire trip to Disneyland, with Jolie toting all her kids, was a publicity stunt.
“Saw Angelina Jolie in the park today. Calling it now that they’re announcing Maleficent 2 at D23.”
However, Maleficent 2 was previously confirmed back in February, making an official announcement at the D23 Expo, which is the official annual Disney fan convention event taking place this weekend, viewed as highly probable.
Instead, an insider told ET that Jolie put the focus on the kids when it came to the birthday celebration at Disneyland.
“The birthday celebrations for Vivienne and Knox went great,” reassured the source.
When it comes to Brad, the insider shared that Jolie is “over” the breakup drama involving Pitt.
“She’s focusing on putting this all behind her and getting back to work,” added the source.
And despite all those rumors, Angelina is not dating right now but instead, “enjoying spending time with her children,” added the insider.
For those curious about the six children that Jolie and Pitt share, CNN reported that all of the children have their parents’ hyphenated last name: Jolie-Pitt.
Maddox Chivan was adopted by Angelina from Cambodia when he was just a few months old. Zahara Marley was adopted by Jolie in Ethiopia when she was six-months-old, and Brad later adopted Maddox and Zahara.
When Pax Thien was three-months-old, Jolie adopted him from Vietnam. One year later, Pitt adopted Pax.
Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was Brad’s and Angelina’s first biological child. Through the years, comparisons have been made between Shiloh and Pitt. As the Inquisitr reported, Shiloh’s recent shorter hairstyle sparked unconfirmed transgender rumors, in part based on Jolie’s 2010 comment to Vanity Fair that Shiloh “likes to dress like a boy,” and Pitt’s comment to Oprah Winfrey two years previously that Shiloh wanted “to be called John.”
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt looks SO MUCH like Brad Pitt.

While it’s not easy to get attention as the youngest, Brad’s and Angelina’s twins earned the spotlight even before they were born. Just like the recent announcement of George Clooney’s and Amal Clooney’s twins, or Beyonce’s twins, fans took notice when Jolie and Pitt announced that they were having twins.
Happy Birthday???????? to Knox & Vivienne Jolie-Pitt! See Brad & Angelina's twins grow up right before your eyes https://t.co/FamZrgttJT

Now that they are nine-years-old, Knox Léon is looking more like Brad, while Vivienne Marcheline resembles Angelina. After shocking her fans when she and Pitt revealed that they were expecting twins, Jolie chose Vivienne’s middle name to honor her mother. Marcheline was the middle name of Angelina’s mom, who passed away from ovarian cancer in 2007.
