Celebrating Celebrity Baby Birthdays - Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt
Some of the world referred to her as the "golden child." Two of the world’s most beautiful people came together as a family with two children. Later the couple welcomed their third child; an absolutely gorgeous baby girl. The world welcomed the much anticipated child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on May 27th, 2006. Shiloh was CBB’s number one baby of 2006!
Name: Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt
Birthday: May 27th, 2006
Famous for: Being the first biological child of Brad Pitt and girlfriend Angelina Jolie.
Name meaning: The first name, which is traditionally masculine, is pronounced SHY-low, and is of Hebrew origin. There seem to be many meanings for the name, ranging from "his gift" and "he who is to be sent," to "peaceful." Shiloh is also the site of a crucial battle in the American Civil War. The middle name is believed to be inspired by famous architect Jean Nouvel – a favorite of Brad’s. The family calls her ‘Shi.’
Siblings: Shiloh was welcomed by Maddox Chivan, now 5 1/2, and Zahara Marley, now 2. The family recently welcomed another son into their family, Pax Thien, 3 1/2.
Birth story: Shiloh was born in the evening by c-section, due to breech positioning. Brad and Angelina knew of the potential issue with the birth before the delivery, and flew Angelina’s OB, Dr. Jason Rothbart, in to perform the surgery.
Shiloh was born in Namibia, meaning that she has a dual passportwith the US, a connection to another country and her sister’s birthplace.
What they said:
Much scrutiny seems to have constantly surrounded Angelina and her love of adoption, leading people to question her affection for Shiloh. However, this month the news of Shiloh being planned came directly from her mother’s mouth.
After having Shiloh, and hence a baby that looked like her parents, Angelina decided that perhaps it was important for Mad to have a brother who was originally from the same place as him.
In a much scrutinized interview with UK Elle, Angelina talked about adoption versus biological. And remember the "blob" comment suggested by the interviewer?!
