Do you ever wonder what is is like to be a member of the Brangelina Bunch? Some people may wonder how such a large and diverse family that is always in the spotlight can make it all work.
"They've munched on crickets in Cambodia and surfed the waves in Cancun, but for the six children of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, life in the boisterous family is as much about everyday bonding as it is the big adventure," says People Magazine in their August 29, 2011 issue.
The issue features the famous family on the cover and goes into detail about the personalities of each of the children. People Magazine reports the following to OJ&B:
"The children are always playing, jumping on each other and sharing fun moments," a source tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "They share a special bond." Leading the pack: oldest son Maddox, 10, who "is almost like a teenager now, the way he understands things," says another source. "He's grown up very quickly."
But his younger siblings are rapidly growing up, too. Six-year-old Zahara and her 5-year-old sister Shiloh are especially close, while 7-year-old Pax "has become more independent in the past year," says an insider. And with twins Knox and Vivienne now 3 – they help pack their own suitcases! – the family is settling into a lower-key, if still decidedly adventurous, rhythm.
"Now that all the children are older, things have calmed down a bit in the household," says the source. "There's a great family dynamic right now."
No matter what your opinion is about Brad and Angie, you have to love the fact that the kids all seem to be adjusting well. It is odd to think that the babies probably think that everyone who goes outside has a mob of Paparazzi to follow them. It is what they have seen since being infants (just like me... well sort of... O.K. not like me at all!)
OJ&B wishes the Brangie Bunch all of the best!
