Angelina Jolie made the difficult decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy to reduce her risk for cancer, and now her loved ones are cheering her on.

"We're so very proud of Angie," Brad Pitt's mom, Jane, says in a statement, according to People.

"This means so much to our family especially our grandchildren," Jane continues. "We love her dearly." 

Meanwhile, Angelina's brother, James Haven, is also singing her praises. 

"My sister like our mother always put her children first," James says. "I am so grateful to be her brother." 

Brad had previously stated that he finds Angelina's choice to be "absolutely heroic."

Angelina and Brad have six children together. Genetic tests showed that she was at a high risk for breast cancer.

We're wishing Angelina and her family all the best!
