Angelina Jolie: Never planned a large family of six children
Popular star Angelina Jolie has admitted that she only ever planned to have two children.
While speaking to Vogue, the star suggested that she and partner Brad Pitt accepted more children into their family when they felt that they could handle raising a large family.
"I only planned for two," she said. "To each his own. It's one of those things. How you build your family - you have to know what you're capable of handling and how your children will relate to each other."
The actress added: "Maybe if you have one child and that child has a lot of needs, you realise you cannot give more attention to another. Sometimes you just know as a parent. We felt we could handle more children, and we have a very happy, very full home."
Angelina hinted that she and Pitt plan to raise their six children in France.
"Hopefully, they'll go to high school in Aix-en-Provence. It looks like a great place to be a teenager."
Brad Pitt's long-time partner also explained that, after more than five years together she still finds solace in her relationship with Pitt.
The 'Salt' star explained: "When I think about him, I just think of the man who's such a great friend and such an extraordinary father. And that's when I fall, you know, when I have my moments of getting - whoarr! - caught up in how much I love him... it's usually when I see him with the children."
