She may only be 4-years-old but Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter Shiloh Nouvel is already causing a huge stir in gossip columns as, according to her parents, Shiloh wants to be a boy.
Shiloh Nouvel, who is the fourth child in the six-strong Jolie-Pitt clan, has apparently become obsessed with JM Barrie’s classic Peter Pan, and most importantly Wendy’s younger brother John.
“We've got to call her John,” said dad Brad Pitt. Brad also revealed that she refuses to be called by her real name as he would ask, “Shi, do you want...” she would interrupt with, “John. I'm John.”
“I'll say, "John, would you like some orange juice?" And she goes, "No!"'
Angelina also added that she and Brad don’t worry about Shiloh’s tomboy tendencies, telling Vanity Fair, “She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers.” In February, Brad reportedly splashed out $10,000 on boys clothes for her.
Would you worry if your daughter wanted to be a boy, or son wanted to be a girl?
