The Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary recently named one of its new cheetah cubs after Shiloh Jolie-Pitt

On a recent trip to Namibia, Angelina Jolie Pitt secured the sweetest gift for her daughter Shiloh.

The actress, 40, visited the country’s Naankuse Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting native wildlife and stopping human-animal conflict in Africa.

The foundation has a special relationship with the Jolie-Pitt family. In 2010, four years after Shiloh was born in Namibia, mom and dad created the Shiloh Jolie-Pitt Foundation to help the Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary with its efforts.

So, when the nonprofit recently welcomed three new baby cheetah cubs into its protection, staff decided to return the favor in the cutest way possible. The foundation named one of the cubs after Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, giving the names Wonder and Odyssey to the other babies.


Jolie had a chance to meet the cheetahs face to furry face during her travels, but daughter Shiloh will have to wait. This doesn’t mean the 9-year-old isn’t acquainted with her cheetah kin.

“Shiloh watches videos of the cubs as they are growing. She loves that little cheetah Shiloh has a tough and independent nature, and cannot wait to visit Naankuse and meet them herself,” Jolie Pitt told the foundation.

We can’t wait until the two Shilohs have their adorable moment together under the African sun.
