Angelina Jolie, who is expecting twins this summer, revealed that pregnancy makes her feel womanly and sexy.
In the July issue of Vanity Fair, she revealed, “It makes me feel that all the things about my body are suddenly there for a reason. It makes you feel round and supple, and to have a little life inside you is amazing.”
The actress revealed that her partner, Brad Pitt, “finds pregnancy very sexy. So that makes me feel very sexy.”
The 32-year-old actress, was already mom to Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, 2, also says she is awed by what the human body can do.
When giving birth to daughter Shiloh, she revealed, “I had a C-section and I found it fascinating. I didn’t find it a sacrifice and I didn’t find it a painful experience. I found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do.”
As for her child-rearing philosophy, she says that as artists she and Pitt emphasize communication and play at home. She added, “We communicate to the point where we probably annoy our children. We have art around the house, we have books, we go to plays, and we talk. Our focus is art and painting and dress-up and singing. It’s what we love.”
Her remark about the nannies of her kids: “We don’t ever have anybody spend the night. We may have to adjust that when the next one comes. But we do have ladies that work with us, and they’re also from different cultures and backgrounds. One lady’s a Vietnamese teacher—wonderful. One is of Congolese descent from Belgium. Another is from the States and is really creative and does art programs.”
Her artists as parents: she revealed, “Artists raise their kids differently. We communicate to the point where we probably annoy our children. We have art around the house, we have books, we go to plays, we talk. Our focus is art and painting and dress-up and singing. It’s what we love. So I think you can see how artists in some way raise other artists.”
