Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Enjoy Holidays in AustraliaBy: Meaghan Ellis - December 26, 2013
Everyone knows Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have a deep admiration for family.
Fans also know that the couple’s parenting obligations are taken quite seriously, and their demanding work schedules are coordinated around the kids.
So, it comes as no surprise that the celebrity couple decided to pack up their six children and jet-set to another continent for the Christmas holiday.
This time around, the Jolie-Pitt family spent the holiday in Queensland, Australia.
E! News reports that Jolie was spotted on Friday, Dec. 20 departing out of Sydney with the children as they prepared to travel to Australia. Jolie had actually been working in Sydney, directing her latest film Unbroken.
Pitt, who celebrated his 50th birthday on Dec. 18, also arrived to spend the holidays with the family.
The Golden Globe winner has actually been traveling back and forth to Australia as he’s been filming World War II-set Fury in London. Ironically, both of them are working on WWII-related projects as Unbroken centers around WWII hero Louis Zamperini.
Today, the Hollywood couple spent the day with their children to the Currumbin Wildlife Park. The Jolie-Pitt family received a VIP tour of an exclusive area of the park that normally restricted to visitors.
The Australian media also reported that the couple visited the beach on the Gold Coast with their six children. The family also went on a boating excursion down the Coomera River.
Then, of course, there was definitely Christmas shopping. With six children, its only normal for doting parents to buy toys and Christmas gifts. So, Jolie and Pitt hit up Target.
Elated with the store’s celebrity guests, Target Australia CEO, Stuart Machin tweeted his sentiments of Jolie and Pitt’s presence in the store.
A source close to the couple also spoke with US Weekly in reference to the Christmas getaway. The source shared the couple’s perspective of balancing work and family time. “They’re used to celebrating wherever they’re working,” the source said. “They meet as often as they can. They don’t want to spend too much time apart!”
