Angie and Pax meet with his grandmother

2011-11-22 22:42

Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's son Pax has reunited with his biological grandmother.

The couple arranged for the eight-year-old - who was adopted from an orphanage near Ho Chi Min City, Vietnam, in 2007 - to spend time with his grandmother Nhan Dung when the Jolie-Pitt family took a recent trip to the exclusive Six Senses resort in Con Dao, South East Vietnam.

An insider told Us Weekly magazine: "It was a one-day visit. Nhan was looking forward to it after Pax had lived so many years abroad."

'Individual pride'

Angelina - who also raises Cambodian-born Maddox, 10, and Ethiopian orphan Zahara, six, as well as biological kids Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with Brad - recently revealed her brood are keen to learn about each other's cultures.

She said: "They are all learning about each other's cultures as well as being proud of their own.

"So it's not like just the boys get to do the Asian thing. They all have their flags over their beds and their individual pride."

Meanwhile, Brad and Angelina have employed specialist teachers to ensure their children don't forget their native tongue.

Angelina recently explained: "We have teachers who teach Cambodian and Vietnamese in our house and they know their flags, their music and quite a lot about their culture. We bring in as much as we can."

    What abt Brad & Angelina, are they also learning these languages? Cos that would be cool. In fact, havong such a diverse family, it would be nice if everyone knew all the languages. Like if i were to adopt 2 kids from Italy and say SA North West, it would be cool of everyone in the home all learned Italian and SeTswana. That way no one has to look for "their kind" to speak the languge and rather can speak it freely in the home also. Like me and my boo- i grew up with Afrikaans, later in life also SeTswana, and the common English (i'm black). and my boo grew up with IsiSwati, Zulu, and 'model C' english. So you can imagine the language mix we speak just us two in our flat:)
