Oh my God: It looks like we have another celebrity teenager on our hands who grew up wayyyyy faster than we thought. In this edition of "Baby, Or Big Kid?" we have Angelina Jolie's oldest son, Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt. Angelina adopted Maddox as an itty bitty baby back in 2002, and to my knowledge, I remember him looking like this:
Somehow, Maddox magically poofed into a Big Kid™ right before our eyes. He looks like this now. Feel old yet??? (You probably should.)
Maddox officially turned 18 today (Happy birthday, Maddox!) and decided where he's going to college. According to a People (opens in new tab) source, Maddox will be going to South Korea's Yonsei University to study biochemistry. The news of Maddox's decision comes after he and his momma were spotted visiting universities in South Korea back in November 2018.
“He got accepted to other universities but choose Yonsei,” the source says. “He has been studying Korean language. He has lessons multiple times a week to prepare.” And to make the transition a little less daunting, Angelina will be dropping him off at school. Awwwwww! “Mom is dropping him off in August,” the source added. “She is very proud. She will miss seeing him as much, but he’s ready.”
Even though Maddox is going to school on the other side of the world, he can expect his six siblings to visit. The family has a home in Cambodia where they can stay. “He’s very close to his siblings and they all hope to visit,” the source said.
First the Jon and Kate Plus 8 twins going to NYC (opens in new tab), now this. Ah, they grow up so fast!
