As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continue to be at the center of rumors regarding their ongoing fights and impending divorce, their children are learning to speak different languages.
According to a new report, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s six kids haven’t taken to the idea of following in their famous parents’ footsteps by acting and are instead focused on other passions and are currently learning a total of seven languages, including Arabic, Russian, Vietnamese and sign language.
Brad Pitt, 52, and Angelina Jolie, 41, have been together for over 10 years and tied the knot in August 2014. Throughout their marriage, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have welcomed a total of six kids into their family, including three biological children – 10-year-old Shiloh, and seven-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – and three adopted children – Maddox, 14, from Cambodia, Pax, 12, from Vietnam, and Zahara, 11, from Ethiopia.

Jolie opened up about her children’s desire to learn different languages while chatting with BBC Radio 4 during the Woman’s Hour Takeover.
“I asked them what languages they wanted to learn and (Shiloh)’s learning Khmer, which is the Cambodian language, Pax is focusing on Vietnamese, Mad has taken to German and Russian, (Zahara)’s speaking French, Vivienne really wanted to learn Arabic and Knox is learning sign language,” Jolie revealed, according to a report by The Mirror on June 17.
The actress also spoke of her next film, which is an adaptation of Cambodian author Loung Ung’s memoir, First They Killed My Father, revealing it was actually her oldest child, son Maddox, who convinced her to take part in the film.
“We’d done this screenplay and put it aside and it was Mad who came up to me and said it was time to do that film and learn about the history of his country, and he wanted to do it and go there and understand it,” Jolie said.
Jolie adopted Maddox from Cambodia in 2002 when he was just seven months old, and years later, Pitt adopted the child as well.

In other Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie news, the couple is said to be going through hard times amid allegations of divorce and possible infidelity. And while the couple have yet to address rumors of a split, a source months ago claimed they were going through a rocky patch but determined to make their marriage work for the sake of their kids.
“The past few months have been tough on [Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie] because they’ve both been very wrapped up in their own projects. They went from doing By The Sea together and having all this time as a family to spending the majority of their time apart. That is hard on them. Whenever they have to spend too much time apart, it causes tension in the relationship,” a source told Hollywood Life in January.
“We have fights and problems like any other couple,” Jolie told The Telegraph in November 2015. “We have days when we drive each other absolutely mad and want space.”
Currently, Brad Pitt and Angelina are believed to be living together as Pitt films Allied in London with Marion Cotillard.
“[Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie] both want to make sure the kids get enough time with at least one of them around so they argue about that,” the Hollywood Life source added. “They both know they need to come back together and have more time as a family unit. They’re looking forward to moving to London together this Spring.”
