From a shy boy living in an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City, Pax Thien became Brangelina’s son. I have the opportunity to be exposed to the glamorous world of Hollywood but am still allowed to learn Vietnamese and be educated towards my roots.
The Vietnamese boy changed his life by becoming the son of an A-list Hollywood star
Pax Thien Jolie – Pitt is no longer a strange name to fans of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as well as the international public. Pax was born in 2003 in Ho Chi Minh City with the Vietnamese name Pham Quang Sang. He was cared for at Tam Binh Orphanage Center (HCMC) before being adopted by the Brangelina couple in 2007. The boy was named Pax Thien by his mother, meaning ‘peaceful sky’.
In a recent interview with Vogue , Angelina Jolie said she initially had no intention of adopting Pax Thien because she already had Maddox as an adopted child from Cambodia. However, the 45-year-old star changed her mind when she read a book about human rights and was deeply impressed with the image of a Vietnamese soldier imprisoned by the US.
From an abandoned boy, Pax entered the world of Hollywood full of splendor. Public opinion at that time was extremely curious about the new member of the family of the Tomb Thieves. Not long after, the first photo of the Vietnamese-born son when he came to the US was sold to People for $ 2.7 million (more than 62 billion). This money is used by the powerful couple for charity
According to IMDb , Angelina Jolie once revealed that when Pax Thien was newly adopted, he was a hyperactive child, loved stuffed monkeys, hated paparazzi and often got into trouble. She began being taught English to communicate with family members and quickly integrated with the other Brangelina children, especially eldest brother Maddox.
According to Mirror , although the ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ children do not have difficulty adapting to life in America, Angelina Jolie always honors their roots and considers it a top priority in raising their children. . To keep Pax from being too confused with his new life, the star born in 1975 hired a Vietnamese nanny to talk to and take care of him.
Life & Style magazine reported in 2007, when Pax Thien was just adopted, the boy was the target of an unsuccessful kidnapping and extortion plot. Before the potential danger, a source close to the star couple revealed that Brad Pitt quickly spent $ 500,000 to install a security system in their home to protect the children.
Sharing in an interview in 2013, Angelina Jolie revealed that Pax is a hyperactive boy, clearly loves to hate and is not afraid to express annoyance and anger when being followed by paparazzi.
However, I am still an emotional person. The Dark Fairy actress said that her second son always concedes, takes care of and protects them like a real brother. “From a child who didn’t like being followed, Pax became an older brother who always kept an eye on the children. Every time he goes out, he holds his children’s hands tightly as if he’s afraid they will get lost,’ the mother of six children shared
Like other Hollywood stars, Pax Thien has been enjoying a life full of silk since childhood. I have famous parents buy expensive clothes and toys, go to grand events and enjoy luxurious vacations and meaningful charity trips.
According to a statistic published by The Mercury News in 2018, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were not afraid to withdraw their wallets of 7,000 USD (more than 162 million USD) to rent a yacht to celebrate Pax Thien’s 7th birthday and 500,000 USD (more than 162 million USD) to celebrate Pax Thien’s 7th birthday. more than 11.6 billion) for a family vacation right after that

Children have national flags on their nightstands and carry their own pride,’ added the Salt film star
In addition to a full material life, the famous American screen star couple is very interested in educating Pax Thien as well as his siblings. Adopted children of Vietnamese origin are encouraged by their parents to pursue their own passions, be good, and never forget their homeland.
“Children should never lose their connection to the place where their parents were born. They have their own roots that you need to respect and learn from. The children are not entering my world, but we are entering each other’s world,’ Angelina Jolie shared with Vogue about raising Pax Thien and her two mixed-race adopted children.
Having parents who are top Hollywood actors and stars, Pax Thien also had many opportunities to approach cinema from an early age. The boy and his siblings once voiced some animals in Kung Fu Panda 3 and appeared as extras in Maleficent
Pax Thien and his brother Maddox also had the opportunity to join their mother in the production of the film First They Killed My Father. Here, the Vietnamese-born boy was satisfied with his passion for photography when he saved memorable moments on the set
Like the other 5 children of Angelina Jolie – Brad Pitt, Pax Thien does not want to inherit the acting career of his parents. The 45-year-old star once revealed to the BBC that her 16-year-old son loves music. Over the years, Jolie-Pitt’s son has maintained his learning of Vietnamese, learning about cultures, and being taught cooking, painting and other gifted subjects that he loves.
Being a support for her mother, she was caught up in rumors of disagreement with her father
