Angelina Jolie made her first post-twins red carpet appearance at the New York premiere of her film “Changeling” on Saturday night. Angelina showed off the latest 2 additions to her body art, the tattoos of her new babies’ birth longitude and latitude. Born in July in Nice, Vivienne and Knox’s tattoo join the four she already had on her upper left arm, where she once had ex-husband Billy Bob Thorton’s name etched in above a dragon. The first four are Maddox’s (Cambodia), Zahara (Ethiopia), Shiloh (Namibia), and Pax (Vietnam).
Asked if she felt nervous to be back in the spotlight, Angelina told People magazine, “Not nervous as much as I just took a deep breath because it¹s been so long. It felt a little strange.”
The Manhattan visit marks the first time since the birth of their twins, Vivienne and Knox, that Angelina and Brad have been in the city with their children.
“Everybody’s great,” she told People magazine. “The babies are getting big and healthy and developing personalities.”
Angelina, 33, did admit, “We are a little bit [sleep deprived]. We have some help a couple of nights a week, so on those nights we catch up on our sleep.”
Angelina looked stunning in an Atelier Versace dress, Sergio Rossi shoes and Mikimoto pearl earrings and ring – after a day of taking her three eldest kids (Zahara, Maddox and Pax Thien) to Lee’s Art Store midtown.
When asked what her secret was to looking so good just five-months after giving birth she replied, “A good dress!”
“I run around with all the other kids, and I’m breastfeeding, which I think is a part of your body’s recovery,” Angelina further shared. “I feel great [and] feel very happy that they’re healthy.”
Angelina said her older kids Maddox, 7, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2, like doting on the twins.
“They’re funny,” Angelina told Us magazine. “They want to help a lot now, but they’re still so little, so it’s like trying to change a diaper, you have to be careful because they squeeze them so tight.
Of her new movie, in which she plays a mother whose son is kidnapped, Angelina said, “Your worst fear is anything happening to your kids. The reason I didn’t want to do the film for a long time … every day I came home, and I was so clinging to my kids. I was grabbing them. And checking them in the night. It scares me.”
As for adopting more children, she shared, “I think we’re going to wait a little while.” She added, “We’re going to have more kids one way or another.”
