Angelina Jolie’s son Maddox is somehow 18 years old now, and the mother-son duo celebrated the occasion during a trip to Cleveland, Ohio. Loung Ung, author of the book First They Killed My Father, which Jolie turned into a film in 2017, posted photos to her Facebook page of her lunch with Jolie and Maddox last week.

“Angelina and Maddox visited me in Cleveland this past week to toast Maddox's upcoming 18th birthday!” she wrote. “We started with lunch at Market Garden Brewpub and a visit to Ohio City Farm/The Refugee Response Program and Cleveland Museum of Art! I met Maddox when he was just a year old and today he turns eighteen and going off to college! So proud! Happy Birthday, Maddox!”

According to People, Maddox will be moving to South Korea in the fall for school. He’s set to attend Yonsei University where he will study biochemistry.

“He got accepted to other universities but choose Yonsei,” a source told People. “He has been studying Korean language. He has lessons multiple times a week to prepare.”

Jolie and her son were seen looking at different schools in South Korea last year, and the actress will join him this month to send him off.

“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.”
