The Academy Award winner enjoyed a celebratory birthday dinner with her kids on Friday night at Los Angeles restaurant TAO. “They had a great day celebrating at home, and the kids surprised her with a special dinner out,” a source tells PEOPLE.
Jolie shares Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox with ex-husband Brad Pitt, 57.
Recently, Jolie raved about her children, who have dominated the Mother’s Day experience throughout the long term.
“My children have consistently been astonishing at Mother’s Day. The diversion for me is that I don’t design anything, I don’t do anything, and they all will in general cooperate to astound me with something,” she told Extra.
“It is only the realizing that they are accomplishing something together and considering something together, and that they need to and that they think it is significant consistently makes me cry,” Jolie added. “They generally joke about how rapidly it makes me cry. They will snicker at how often I cry in the day or how rapidly I cry … ‘Goodness, there she goes!'”
The Eternals star has enjoyed having some quality time with her children, as they quarantined together during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I’ve found that the kids have really come together,” she told PEOPLE last month.
“I have a big group, and with Maddox coming back from college and being in the same house, they’ve really had to manage this together,” Jolie added. “We’ve also all gotten very good at dark tag, this new thing that we do where we turn all the lights off and [chase each other].”
