Jolie revealed to PEOPLE magazine that her 6 children are extremely excited about this news. “What’s really moving to me is that they want to see me strong, and so it’s less to see me in a film, but they’re just happy I will be strong and having fun,” she said.

She shares her children Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with actor Brad Pitt, whom she recently divorced.
