Maddox may be far away from their family home in America but he is close to the family’s Cambodian home and his younger siblings, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne hope to visit him soon.

He made his choice to attend a South Korean institution at the end of last year when he was spotted out and about with Jolie visiting universities in the country, during his mom’s official visit as the UNHCR’s Special Envoy.

Maddox was adopted by Jolie on 10 Mac, 2002 when he was seven-months-old from an orphanage in Battambarg, Cambodia.

His real name is Rath Vibol and he was born 5 Aug 2001 in a local village.

Out of his siblings, two were adopted and three are biological.
