Angelina is a Militant Mum

Angelina Jolie is a "militant" mother, it has been revealed.

The Oscar-winning actress - who raises adopted children Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, and biological kids Shiloh, four, and twins Knox and Vivienne, two, with partner Brad Pitt - finds it easy to prepare her brood for their frequent trips around the world because she is so organised with the packing ritual.

"We're quite comfortable living out of suitcases, we're quite nomadic,” reveals Brad. "We've got it down and the kids have got their backpack. They have to carry their backpack and if they forget it, they forget it - because there's just too much to keep track of.

"Mum's really good at packing. She's militant, she's really, really talented. I couldn't do it."

Brad, 47, and Angelina think it is important to always take their family with them when they work, and try their best to establish a routine when travelling.

He explained in an interview with The Sun newspaper: "They're quite used to it. We try to travel at night so they sleep because it's really difficult for everyone to be awake and the chaos that ensues.

"We always take them to the locations. We try to keep the family intact - we think that's very important."

Brad adds he loves taking the children to foreign places as it is helping them learn about different culture.

He said: "The thing I'm most proud of I think is that the biggest part of our kids' education is getting to see the world and getting to experience the world and other cultures."
