Angelina Jolie Reunites Son Pax with Biological Grandmother in Vietnam

During a recent visit to Vietnam, the actress hosted a reunion for her 8-year-old son and his biological grandmother

Angelina Jolie believes in exposing her children to their heritage. The mother of six recently took her son, Pax Jolie-Pitt, on his first trip back to Vietnam since his adoption, and she even reunited the 8-year-old boy with his biological grandmother.

Pax, who was adopted from an orphanage near Ho Chi Minh City in 2007, was able to visit his grandmother, Nhan Dung, on the family trip.

"It was a one-day visit," an insider tells the latest issue of Us Weekly. "Nhan was looking forward to it after Pax had lived so many years abroad."

Jolie, 36, and partner Brad Pitt, 47, arranged for Dung to spend time with her grandson Pax at the luxurious Six Senses seaside resort in Con Dao, where the family stayed during their visit.

Earlier this year, Jolie told the Financial Times why she and Pitt feel it's important to educate their adopted children about their native countries. "They are all learning about each other's cultures as well as being proud of their own," she said. "They all have their flags over their beds and their individual pride."

In addition to Pax, Jolie and Pitt have two other adopted children: Maddox, 10, from Cambodia, and Zahara, 6, from Ethiopia, and three biological children: Shiloh, 5, and 3-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
