Shiloh Jolie Pitt with her blonde hair and bright blue eyes is a somewhat perfect mixture of both parents and the oldest biological child of the Jolie Pitt clan. Shiloh is known for being gender-neutral and for her preference for the Tomboy style. There have been unconfirmed reports that she has been a transsexual since the age of 2. I think the rumors have since been put to rest, they just have created a new interest and concern for Shiloh.
Biography of Shiloh Jolie Pitt
Shiloh Nouvel Jolie Pitt, nicknamed Shi or John, is the famous daughter of prominent Hollywood movie stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. She was born on 27 May 2006 at Cottage Medi-Clinic Hospital in Swakopmund, Namibia, after a planned Caesarean section. She has dual citizenship of Namibia and the United States.
She is the oldest biological child of the famous duo and has two younger siblings. The pack Jolie-Pitt consists of six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and the twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline.
Shiloh comes from a famous lineage that goes beyond her parents. She is the granddaughter of Marcheline Bertrand, Oscar winner, Jon Voight, Jane Etta Pitt, and William Alvin Pitt. She is also the grandniece of the American singer-songwriter Chip Taylor.
Her name Shiloh comes from the name Shiloh Baptist, which her maternal grandparents wanted to give to their first child, who unfortunately had a miscarriage. However, her mother loved the name so much that she suggested it as her (Angie and Brad) own first name. It was then chosen by the parents as their first name. Her middle name, Nouvel, is said to have been chosen in honor of Brad’s favorite architect Jean Nouvel.

Preteen became famous even before she was born, thanks to her parents’ celebrity status. At the time of her birth, magazines paid a handsome $7.6 million for her pictures. Her first baby pictures that were published became the most expensive celebrity pictures of all time. However, the money was donated by Angelina and Brad to an undisclosed charity.
Two months after her birth, Death became the youngest person ever to have a wax figure of her immortalized in the legendary Madame Tussaud’s in London.
Her mother described her as silly and verbal, which are the first signs of an actress. Despite the fame of her parents, Shiloh Jolie Pitt has already begun her path to fame. She is an actress and has appeared in films such as Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016), VH1: All Access (2001), and Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2015 (2015). She also had a short appearance in her father’s film, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), in which she played the little daughter of Brad’s character Benjamin and Cate Blanchett, Daisy.
Shiloh’s Transgender Moves
You know that this belief of being strong support for your children in their life choices usually helps them to choose what suits them best. Most parents believe in the philosophy of letting their children be themselves. Yes, Shiloh Jolie Pitt is allowed to make her own fashion decisions while her parents are a great support to her. She, who prefers to dress in suits rather than dresses, began her gender research at the age of 2 when she decided to take the name, John. And of course, she is supported on her journey by her parents.
Either because she has older brothers, or perhaps of her own free will, she loves sporty boy haircuts and likes to dress up as a boy to show her boyish side, because she believes she is one of her brothers. Another side, huh? Like there are other sides to her, like a girly side. Angelina Jolie once mentioned that her little girl has the Montenegrin style and prefers normal suits and tracksuits.

Although there are many questions as to why the parents allowed their daughter to continue dressing as a boy in pants and suits, they have not stopped calling her. Shiloh is still a pre-school child, and her parents have reportedly postponed discussing gender identity with her until she is ready for high school. They have also sought expert advice on this issue so as not to harm their child.
However, the transgender rumors may have been sparked as a result of Angelina’s comments. She said that her daughter “likes to dress like a boy” and “wants to be a boy”. Some people like Amber Rose had even called the little girl a transkid, although her parents never alluded to any of their children as such.
As strange as the girl’s choice to be identified as a boy may seem, it would be unfair to jump to the conclusion that she is trans. She could simply copy her brothers and in time even give up the whole practice. What should we do then? Let us allow her to explore her identity at her own pace and on her own terms, as her parents did.
