What they said:

Zahara’s bedtime ritual.

Zahara is tucked in each night with Angelina’s rendition of ‘Little Bunny Foo Foo.’

Zahara’s hair:

‘You do her hair, she takes it out. It’s like everybody just starts to undress once you’ve gotten them dressed.’

Siblings from around the world;

They’re as much my blood as I am theirs. And they are brothers and sisters. One came from Ethiopia, one from Vietnam, one from Cambodia, and one was born in Namibia. And they are brothers and sisters, and they have fun and they squabble and they fight, just like any other family. And it makes me so proud. Fatherhood, Brad said, is "the hardest job in the world, the most rewarding job in the world…It is everything." We put in long days [working]. And to go home and have dinner with your kids, and have to discipline one of them who’s out of line, and still have the energy for that is … I can’t explain the fulfillment of that, but it is everything.

Zahara has a sense of humor; Angelina has said that Zahara is possibly the funniest person she has ever met in her life.

‘Zahara is the smartass personality. The other day, Z said to me, ‘I need a cookie.’ I said, ‘You need a cookie? You don’t need a cookie!’ So she says, ‘Daddy gonna cry.’ I ask, ‘Why is Daddy going to cry?’ ‘Daddy wants me to have a cookie!’ She’s just that smart.’

She is a real entertainer; the couple have said that Z (as she is known) is the one who keeps the house from being quiet.

She’s a real daddy’s girl; if she doesn’t get that bottle from mommy, she knows that she can get it from daddy.

Angelina appeared on Larry King Live to promote A Mighty Heart and spoke of how she and Brad plan to raise their children.

We talk…often with how we’re going to raise our children. And we want to make sure that we raise them to have as much respect for, and as much comfort in, the village with no video games and no comfortable beds and sheets and fancy this or that, and that they have just as much fun, and just as much respect for those people as they do for somebody in a big city with all these other interesting things. And fortunately, we have discovered that with all the traveling our children do and all the different places we all spend time in that we do have that balance, that they don’t see it as different, unusual or less than to be in another country. They see it as different and wonderful things. We’re trying to instill compassion and understanding and tolerance. And hopefully they will have that by looking at each other as they grow up, and learning about each other’s countries and just being a family. But also, we don’t want them to be spoiled and we don’t want them to be attached to things. And we don’t want them to be attached — or take fame seriously, or anything like that. We want them to be good people, like all parents.
