Angelina Jolie reveals daughter Vivienne’s loss during lockdown
Angelina Jolie has revealed about her family’s experience during the coronavirus lockdown in a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar.
"Like most parents, I focus on staying calm, so my children don't feel anxiety from me on top of all they are worrying about. I put all my energy into them. During the lockdown, Vivienne's bunny passed away during a surgery, and we adopted two sweet little ones who are disabled,” the mother of six explained.
She explained that the new additions to the family need to be in pairs.
"They need to be in pairs. They are so gentle and it has helped to focus on their care with her at this time and on the dogs, and snakes and lizard."
Jolie is currently isolating at home in Los Angeles with her six children, Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 13 and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.View this post on Instagram
She also revealed that she’s been struggling with homeschooling.
"We're all locked in, we're doing all right… Well, the two things that affect children from my view the most being out of school is of course, education, and the challenges of education."
"I know parents across the country are challenged with homeschool and maybe that's more a challenge for the parents than the children."
Jolie shares her children with ex-husband Brad Pitt, who lives nearby. The kids have been spending their time between their parents houses during the lockdown.
