Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's children were thrust into the spotlight at a very young age, thanks to the status of their parents. But what most people might not know is that their oldest biological child, Shiloh has made a pretty extraordinary change...

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's first biological child garnered a lot of press coverage when she was born.

The pair were already parents to adopted children Maddox and Zahara when news surrounding Angelina's pregnancy shook the world.

It was so intense for the couple that they traveled to Namibia specifically for the baby's birth.

After their daughter was born, the first photos of the baby sold for millions of dollars, which Brad and Angelina then gave to charity.

Everyone was excited to see what Shiloh would grow up to look like, having such stunning parents.

And the public believed that another star was born.

Now, Shiloh has left fans astounded after they found out something shocking about the teen...

It's safe to say, the leaked revelation attracted a lot of attention online...

With many feeling absolutely shocked.

Now, of course, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are hugely famous actors.

Brad and Angelina famously met while filming Mr and Mrs Smith. They quickly hit it off and, despite the fact that Brad was still married, they couldn't fight their feelings.

The pair quickly became the power couple.

Many commented that Jen and Angelina couldn't really look (or be) any more different - which fueled a lot of drama at the time.

Brangelina became famous for one thing.

They quickly amassed a huge brood of children, some through adoption and some through birth.

Although the pair both adopted their kids ...

Angelina adopted them first - which has led some to suspect that the relationship may have been a little more strained than it seemed.

In 2016, Brangelina announced their divorce.

And though not all details have been released to the public, it's clear that there is a lot of ill-feeling between the pair.

Some even believed that the kids were part of the couple's issues.

Getty

Many thought that Brad never wanted to be a father to such a large brood, but went along with it because of his love for Angelina.

And it seemed like the kids were stuck in the middle.

Although they remained pretty tight-lipped about the goings-on in the divorce.

Divorce is never easy on the kids.


But Brad and Angelina are trying their best to co-parent.

And in spite of some dramas, the family seemed to be working through it.

The Jolie-Pitt kids are kept primarily out of the limelight.

But this week, a new revelation has the whole internet talking...

It has come to light that Brad and Angelina's oldest biological child has not gone by the name Shiloh since they were very little...

Getty

The actors have rarely touched on the subject over the years, but it seems as though the child goes by the name John Jolie-Pitt, which they chose for themselves.

Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was born on May 27, 2006.

Getty

The baby was assigned female at birth, but the child has questioned their gender identity from a very young age.

In 2008, Brad spoke out that the child wanted to go by a different name...

Getty

"She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it's a Peter Pan thing," he told Oprah.

"So we've got to call her John. 'Shi, do you want …' – 'John. I'm John.' And then I'll say, 'John, would you like some orange juice?' And she goes, 'No!' So, you know, it's just that kind of stuff that's cute to parents, and it's probably really obnoxious to other people."

The name stuck, and rad and Angelina were supportive. They were also fine with John's affinity for boys clothes...

"She wants to be a boy," Angelina told Vanity Fair. "So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers."

It's been rumored that family and friends refer to the child as John exclusively and have done for some time.

Brad and Angelina are letting John figure out what they identify as in a supportive environment without influence.

Parents can learn a lot from Brad and Angelina.
