Maddox Jolie-Pitt

FAMEFLYNET

Before the Brangelina household consisted of mom, dad and six kids, it was just Angelina Jolie and Maddox

And on Monday, Brad Pitt and Angie's oldest son is celebrating his 12th birthday!

In March 2002, Angelina adopted 7-month-old Maddox from Cambodia. Shortly afterwards, she gushed to Cosmopolitan that he was "the most important thing in my life," saying, "He has given me strength. I've never known this kind of relationship or love before."

Through the years, of course, dad Brad and Mad's siblings Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox also came into the picture. But being the oldest kid has its perks—including a cameo role in dad's movie World War Z.

"He gets shot in the head," Brad said at the movie's NYC premiere in June 2013. "I don't know what that says about me as a parent. He gets shot multiple times in the head to be fair. He gets double-tapped."

Not a bad gig for a kid. And just think, Brad and Angelina have one year left before they've got a teenager on their hands!
