- She was given the name Yemsrach by her birth mother, and later given the legal name Tena Adam at an orphanage
- Mom Angie once noted that her daughter does not like the paparazzi: “Zahara hates photography. It makes her very nervous when she’s in the car. A lot of people say to us that she looks very serious. It’s because she’s actually upset when there’s a camera near her. She doesn’t like it.”
- In 2010, a $100K trust fund was put in her name as the estate of Angelina’s late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, was settled
“It’s always fun to have family on set. I think it wouldn’t be the same without them. They get to come and laugh at mommy for playing dress up and having a funny accent.” – Angelina, on taking her kiddos to work.
“I only planned for two! To each his own. It’s one of those things. How you build your family—you have to know what you’re capable of handling and how your children will relate to each other. Maybe if you have one child and that child has a lot of needs, you realize you cannot give more attention to another. Sometimes you just know as a parent. We felt we could handle more children, and we have a very happy, very full home.” – Angelina, on having a big family.
