Angelina Jolie said she “learns so much” from her six children and feels like her “world expands” when theirs does.
The 44-year-old actress recently sent her eldest child Maddox, 18, off to university in South Korea and she has gushed that she is “so proud” of him and shared how she learns “so much” from her six children.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said, “I just sent one off… I’m so proud of him.
“I’m so excited, I feel like my world expands as their world expands. I learn so much from them and I love this stage.”
The Maleficent star – who also has Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – said she expects to have a “different” experience with each of her children when they are ready to head to college or fly the nest.
She added, “It’s going to be different for different kids.
“Maddox was so ready.”
Maddox is studying biochemistry at Yonsei University in Seoul, and Angelina admitted she was devastated when she had to say goodbye to him last month. She said, “Yes, I cried. He was very sweet and gave me a big long hug. It’s that transfer when they start taking care of you and making sure you’re okay. “
She added that she is “excited about his choices’ in life” and wants to get back to visit him as soon as possible.
