The Brangelina bunch went all out to celebrate Shiloh’s first birthday in Prague!
Birthdays are very important to Angelina Jolie, as her late mother Marcheline Bertrand (who died of cancer in January) devoted boundless energy to celebrating her children’s big day. “She would spent weeks to plan the right birthday party, and write four drafts to get the right birthday card ready,” Angelina recently told Dateline NBC’s Ann Curry.
At the family’s special rental in the Czech Republic capital, where Angelina, 32, is on location shooting the thriller Wanted, the family gathered on May 27th to celebrate Shiloh’s big day. Angelina had to work that morning, but was home by 2 p.m. to be with her daughter.
“I was contacted by the bodyguards,” Katarina Rozsivalova of Prague’s Balon Servic (a balloon service) tells Us.
“They told me they needed 50 balloons for Saturday and Sunday. An assortment of colors.” Also delivered: cookies and a cake.
But birthdays come around just once a year, and the parents of Hollywood’ most rapidly expanding brood are committed to making every day a special one for Shiloh, Zahara, 2, Pax, 3, and Maddox, 5, and no one is better at finding fun than doting dad Brad Pitt.
“One time, when the kids were bored, Brad had them all throwing empty pizza boxes as Frisbees,” says a source. “Obviously, Shiloh was too young to join in, but you could hear her laughing.”
