PICS: Angelina Jolie spoils Shiloh ahead of her daughter 'moving in with Brad Pitt'
The actress was all smiles despite big changes in her family
A beaming Angelina Jolie appeared the attentive and happy mum as she stepped out with some of her kids in West Hollywood yesterday – with daughters Shiloh and Zahara having a great time as the movie star spoiled her kids with a fun family lunch.
The scene comes as Angelina recently tearfully farewelled oldest son Maddox as she started uni in South Korea, and follows reports that Shiloh is set to move in with her father Brad Pitt. Now it seems Angelina wants to put the bad times of her divorce and custody wrangling with ex-husband Brad Pitt behind her.

‘Shiloh and Zahara were in a great mood,’ says an onlooker. ‘Shiloh in particular has never seemed happier – and mom seemed determined to make sure she enjoyed herself.'
Amid big changes with her kids, Angelina told E! News that recent times haven’t been easy for her.
‘I’m like everybody and… especially these last few years haven’t been the easiest, and I haven’t felt very strong,’ she said. ‘There’s something when you’re not feeling very strong, where you push yourself.’
‘Shiloh and Brad will wake up early and hang in the skate park or cook breakfast with the rest of the crew. They’ve gotten some precious one-on-one time,’ says the source.
After whisking the kids to his ranch in Santa Barbara, Brad ‘encouraged the kids to fire off questions about what happened in the past,' reports the magazine.
‘Brad’s a huge believer in closure, so this is something he initiated for his own sake as well as the kids,’ the sources says, adding that Brad’s ‘finally made peace’ with his oldest son and ‘Maddox is proud of his dad for turning his life around.’

Shiloh is already showing signs of being a quirky and individualistic child. For her recent birthday, she is reported to have requested a visit to Hollywood's trendy escape room The Basement, which simulates a scenario where participants are kidnapped by a terrifying 'serial killer' played by live actors.
While Brad wasn’t in on that visit, insiders are hoping that will change moving forward as his daughter becomes more involved in his life.
