Cambodia, Pax, four, from Vietnam, and Zahara, three, from Ethiopia.
They're also parents to biological offspring Shiloh, two, and baby twins
Knox and Vivienne. And while the children love the southern U.S. city
for its culinary delights, Jolie insists they're actually learning about
various cultures by living in New Orleans.
She says, "Our kids love it here. They love the school and their friends
here. Most of all they love Verti Marte (a diner in the French Quarter).

tradition through that."
Fight Club star Pitt has been working with his charity Make It Right to
