ANGELINA Jolie is having her ovaries removed — but she is planning to freeze her eggs so that she and partner Brad Pitt can conceive through a surrogate.
In February 2013, Angelina Jolie made a bold and brave move when she decided to have a double mastectomy. The decision came after Angelina was tested to see if she was carrying the same genetic disposition that took her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, for which her results were positive.
Jolie is taking her brave preventative actions one step further by opting to have her ovaries removed.
Once Angelina’s ovaries are removed, she will no longer be able to reproduce on her own.
“Angie knows Brad wants more children, so she’s decided to freeze her eggs before the procedure so that they can add to the family in time,” a source revealed to Star magazine.
“She’s amazing to muster the strength to face yet another major medical procedure and still plan for another baby.”
On if she posts so many photos of her kids on Instagram in order to control the paparazzi: “I don’t really believe that paparazzi control the image that I have, you know, at all. It really is me who controls my own image and I do take that very seriously. When I do post pictures of my kids on Instagram, it’s not necessarily trying to outdo someone else. I’m not trying to get something out there before someone else can, [but it’s] because I think my kids are beautiful and adorable.”
On her kids: “My kids have the biggest personalities ever, and I know every mom would probably say that about their children, but I guess I’m just one of those moms who likes to brag about how adorable their kids are.
On if they enjoy road trips as a family: “We definitely love going on road trips and it’s definitely in our Budget rental car, I’ll be honest. The kids love it. Eric and I listen to them banter back and forth and it’s like, “Oh, my gosh, can we just give them an iPad or something?” It reminds me of when I grew up and going on road trips with my sister and my parents. It’s always a sentimental time. Even if your kids [are] screaming, I feel like I’ll miss that one day.”
On if there is a special soundtrack that they listen to in the car: “Well, my daughter [Maxwell] really is a fan of of “Mikki Naj.” [Laughs] Not Nicki Minaj, “Mikki Naj.” That’s her inspiration at the moment. And Ace is — I could brag — but he has perfect pitch. He’s got such good tone. He can sing so well, but the words don’t always come out correctly. It’s cute, they both love music and they like to dance and circle around each other. My daughter is trying to learn to break dance at the moment, she has one move — she puts her hands down and puts her leg up like she’s break dancing.”
On if her kids will be future stars: “My kids are stars in my own eyes. I would never force the entertainment business on them or anything like that, but I do think they’re already more talented than me.”
During a Wednesday appearance on Today, Miracles From Heaven star Jennifer Garner opened up about co-parenting her three kids – daughters Violet, 10, and Seraphina, 7, and 4-year-old son Samuel – with estranged husband Ben Affleck.
“You know what? We’re doing really well,” the Alias alum, 43, said. “The kids are great, they’ll be getting up and going to school soon. And Ben is there, and he’ll be taking them.”
She added: “We will make it work.”
The Dallas Buyers Club actress went on to talk about divorcing in the spotlight.
“It’s not easy to go through it — period,” she said. “I have found going through it in the public eye, it’s just another facet of it. But for anyone, when your life shifts in any way, it’s tricky enough. But I have found people to be so warm and loving that it hasn’t been nearly as bad as you might imagine.”
It sounds like her faith has gotten her through the tough times.
“I grew up going to church every Sunday, and Ben and I took our kids home to West Virginia to be baptized in my family’s church,” she shared.
She went on to talk about her inspirational new film, Miracles From Heaven.
“The thing about this film was it kind of encouraged me to reengage in just participating — not just believing — actually participating in raising my children so that they have the same background my parents gave my sisters and me,” she said.
Former footballer David Beckham covers the April issue of GQ and opens up about family life with wife, designer Victoria Beckham, and their four kids: sons Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11, and daughter Harper, 4.
On being a family man: “I get physically ill when I have to leave the kids now,” he said, adding that he often spends his time watching Frozen over and over again with Harper.
On when tabloids try to find fault in his parenting: “I’m secure as a person, as a husband, as a dad. I’ve gone past the point of really worrying, caring.”
On his retirement from soccer: “I miss soccer every day. I don’t know whether it’s the athlete in me, or the passion I have for the game: I always think that I can step back on the field and play… You know, maybe I could play another year in the U.S. If I was still living in L.A., I’d probably really seriously think about coming back for a year. But we’re living in London, and the kids are happy in the school…”
