Shiloh "John" Jolie-Pitt, Is She Being Raised As a Boy?

Updated on September 6, 2014

If you saw the pictures of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's wedding, you may have seen the two pictures of the flower girls, Vivienne and Zahara, Pax and Maddox walked Angelina down the aisle, and Knox and Shiloh as the ring bearers. At first glance, you may have thought the two ring bearers are both boys, but they are not, one is a girl named Shiloh.

Shiloh is the first biological child for both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, born in 2007. The reason why Angelina and Brad named the first child is because Angelina's late mother miscarried a child which she was going to name Shiloh. Angelina's mom passed away from breast caner a few years ago, and that is why Angelina has had a mastectomy and her ovaries removed sine it runs in her family.

When Shiloh was about 2-3 years old, she decided that her name was John. For a few years, the clan on consisted of Pax, Maddox, and Shiloh, so she thought she was one of the boys. She started to dress up as a boy, and kept saying she is a boy. It is rumored that Brad's mom has brought Shiloh multiple girl gifts, such as princess gowns, but she refused to wear them. Angelina was a bit annoyed, because she respected the wishes of her child, and did not push the matter. Both parents have acquiesced to her demands to treat her as a boy, and have bought her all boy's clothing, and keeps her hair in a shaggy unisex hairdo.

In the past few years, Shiloh now responds to the name "Shax", This is not surprising since all the boys in the Jolie-Pitt clan have a "X" in their name, Pax, Maddox, and Knox. Shiloh is the spitting image of her father, and she is a very cute kid, whether she wants to be a girl or boy.

Many kids grow out of stages like this. but if this is the life she wants to live and she is happy, good for Shax.

      Alli - Thanks for this hub. I think the way that you supported your daughter to be whomever it is that she is, or wants to be, even though you didn't feel all that comfortable with the 'boyish' stage, is wonderful. That you've worked out regardless of who she grows up to be (Brian, or Brianna etc) that you'll love her regardless.

      Your willingness to let her be herself in what ever way that means - short hair, boys clothes, or long hair girly clothes and make up - means that she will grow up into a confident young person and adult, secure in what it means to be her, and comfortable in it. If only everyone was that lucky!

      Thanks for this hub!
