Brad Pitt and his children with ex-wife Angelina Jolie have some big changes coming their way, and the actor is certainly feeling all the emotions any parent can relate to.
The star and the rest of his children are facing the incoming departure of their beloved Zahara, who is taking off for college in the coming weeks.
Angelina took to Instagram on 1 August to reveal that her 17-year-old daughter would be headed to Spelman College, a historically Black liberal arts college for women in Atlanta, Georgia.
As Brad conducted interviews while attending the red carpet premiere in Los Angeles for his latest action film, Bullet Train, on the very same day of the announcement, he couldn’t help but get choked up when asked about his daughter’s incredible milestone.
“Yeah, that’s beautiful, it’s really beautiful,” he told People Magazine while holding back tears.
Throughout the red carpet, the 58-year-old couldn’t help but keep gushing about his daughter, insisting: “I’m so proud of her.
“She’s so smart. She’s going to flourish even more at college. It’s an exciting and beautiful time to find her own way and pursue her interests. I’m so proud,” he said.
Zahara is the second of his children to have made the big move away from home. His oldest son, Maddox, who is 20, goes to Yonsei University in South Korea.
Opening up about seeing your children grow up and go off to college, he made parents instantly relate to him when he said: “Where does the time go, right? They grow up too fast… It brings a tear to the eye.”
His former wife announced the news of Zahara’s enrollment with an adorable picture of the soon-to-be college student posing alongside some of her “Spelman sisters,” looking happy as can be about her choice.
