When Shiloh Pitt, Brad Pitt’s biological daughter, and daughter through a previous relationship, declared that she preferred to be addressed using a boy’s name, it sent tongues wagging. Shiloh’s well-known father recently had some kind words to say about his daughter after she became internet famous for her dancing abilities.
Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt is one of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s six children; she is their biological daughter. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorced in 2014. On May 27, 2006, the couple’s daughter was brought into the world.
Her birth took place at the Cottage Hospital in Swakopmund, which is located in the country of Namibia in Africa. It just so happened that her family had been vacationing in the country for a few months before she arrived, so she was immediately made to feel at home there.
According to People magazine, Shiloh could quickly fit in with her enormous family. One year after the birth of her daughter, Angelina Jolie spoke up on what it was like to be a mother to Shiloh and said that the tiny girl reminded her of herself, saying:
“She’s just tiny honey with a big honeypot of light and love inside of her, and she’s very, very amusing. I have a feeling that I can see a little bit of myself in that one; she’s going to cause a little bit of a ruckus!”
In an interview that aired on Oprah Winfrey’s program in November 2008, Brad discussed Shiloh and his other children, as well as various topics related to his family. The daughter of the actor who played Benjamin Button in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” was only 212 years old at the time.
Shiloh’s father said that she preferred the name Peter or John for her given name. Brad added that the young girl insisted that her name was John and would only react to them when they called her by her nickname, “Shi.” Whenever they called her by her nickname, “Shi,” the little girl would insist that her name was John.
The comedian laughed hysterically as he recounted the times when he’d ask his daughter, “John, would you want some orange juice?” and Shiloh would respond, “No!” regardless. He and his wife, along with the other parents, found the new peculiarity to be something endearing and adorable.
On the other hand, he reasoned that it most likely came out as annoying to other people. Angelina Jolie told Reuters in 2010 that her daughter Shiloh had considered herself “one of the boys” while she was growing up, and that the family had supported her fashion choices. The actress from “Wanted” said:
The decisions that she is making fascinate me, and I could never be the type of parent who tries to mold their child into someone they are not; I consider that to be irresponsible parenting.
Instead of wearing garments designed specifically for females, the little girl would dress in clothing that was intended to be worn by guys. Because of Angelina’s perspectives, which may be seen in the following sentence: “Her parents enabled her to portray herself in the manner in which she did because she stated:
It is vital to a child’s development for him or her to be able to communicate his or her thoughts and feelings in whatever manner he or she sees fit, without fear of criticism from adults. Children should be given this freedom.
The actress believed that there was always something new to discover in terms of how people categorized and evaluated one another socially. She believed that we had a long way to go in terms of our education on individual representation.
A source for Life & Style said that while Brad was very proud of all six of his children, he had a particularly close bond with Shiloh. The source indicated that the relationship between the father and daughter was “really unbreakable.”
According to the information provided by the source, one of the factors that contributed to the formation of the relationship was the fact that both parties had the “same passions.” Despite the continuing legal struggle for custody of his children and his separation from Angelina, Brad made it a priority to spend time with all of his children.
It is said that the actor from “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” would see his children in a location that was very private. The actor’s other children include Maddox, Vivienne, Knox, and Zahara, as well as Pax; however, Shiloh was the kid to whom he was described as being “especially connected.”
The source claims that Brad and Shiloh had a joyful, loving, and genuine connection and that the two were “made from the same fabric.” The actor was known to have gushed in the past about his undying love for each of his children.
On the other hand, the fact that they enjoyed similar activities contributed to the intimacy that existed between him and his daughter. According to a source for Life & Style, the two people became close via activities such as making music and art, going to the movies, and spending time together at his art studio, where they had the opportunity to be creative.
Additionally, Brad was there to encourage Shiloh in all of her endeavors, especially her love of dance. A source close to the situation said that “Brad never puts pressure on Shiloh and encourages her to follow her aspirations.” They went on to say that:
“She never feels awkward when she’s chatting to her dad about any subject.”
When Entertainment Tonight caught up with Brad in August 2022, he was at the Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles, where he had previously given an interview. He was given the opportunity to speak on Shiloh’s presence in an alternate version of Doja Cat’s “Vegas” music video, and he praised her performance, saying:
It makes me want to shed a tear, that’s for sure.
The actor from “Bullet Train” praised his daughter’s dance skills and referred to the adolescent as “quite lovely.” Additionally, he said, “I am unable to explain where she obtained it. I’m Mr. Two-Left-Feet here.”
According to the source, Shiloh Jolie-renowned Pitt’s parents, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had no objections to the idea of her turning her pastime into a career, but they weren’t encouraging or pressuring her in any direction.
When asked if he hoped his children would avoid the limelight or have an interest in the arts, Brad said that all he wanted was for them to follow their own paths in life. He wished for his progeny to first find things in which they had an interest and then thrive in those endeavors.
The film was uploaded on the internet in June of 2022 by Hamilton Evans, who was working as the video choreographer for Doja Cat. Shiloh, along with the other dancers of the Millennium Dance Complex, had the opportunity to showcase their talents in it.
At around 2 minutes and 30 seconds into the video that went viral on YouTube, Angelina’s daughter, who is 16 years old, could be seen rocking her movements. There were rumors that Shiloh had begun taking dancing lessons, and it seemed like she was benefiting from them.
An anonymous insider told Us Weekly that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were “extremely proud” of their daughter Shiloh. According to the source, the renowned parents did not object to the idea of Shiloh turning her interest into a professional endeavor, but they did not encourage her daughter to do so either.
In addition to the video of Evans, Shiloh became popular on Tik Tok for videos in which she displayed her hip-hop dancing talents to routines set to songs such as Ed Sheeran’s “Shivers” and Lizzo’s “About Damn Time.” Both of these songs were performed by Lizzo.
According to a source for Us Weekly, the young person enjoyed dancing. The informant said that Angelina and Brad’s kid had been going to her dancing sessions for “a few years now” and that she has “very impressive skill.”
