Way back in the summer of 2005, Angelina Jolie adopted a tiny baby girl named Zahara Marley from an orphanage in Ethiopia. At the time, Zahara was just six months old. Angelina and her Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star Brad Pitt were in the very beginning stages of their relationship.
These days, a lot has changed. It’s over eight years later, and Zahara is now eight years old. Instead of having just one brother, Maddox, adopted from Cambodia in 2002, she’s now one of six. There’s Maddox, sister Shiloh, born in 2006, brother Pax, adopted from Vietnam in 2007, and twins Knox and Vivienne, born in 2008.
Just like her famous siblings, little Z has grown up a lot over the years! Above is a photo of her and daddy Brad Pitt taken back in 2007, when Zahara was only about 2 years old. With her cute t-shirt, her big, bright smile, and her curly short hair pulled up into two ponytails, Z was a pretty adorable tot.
These days, she’s a little lady. Photographers caught up with the elementary schooler at the airport with her family arriving in Australia in September. Holding hands with sis Shiloh as they walked through the busy terminal, Zahara was wearing a tan skirt, a polka dot top, red shoes, and tiny earrings. Her hair, slightly longer, was pulled back into a high ponytail.
And just look at her eyes! So big and soulful. We have a feeling that Z is going to be quite the little heartbreaker once she hits her teenage years!
