The coronavirus pandemic has been hard on everyone including parents who have been trying to keep their little ones busy while adjusting to the new normal. For Angelina Jolie, her role as a parent became more challenging when her daughter Vivienne’s pet rabbit suddenly died.

Jolie has been self-isolating with her children amid the coronavirus pandemic. The 45-year-old shares six children, Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 11, with ex Brad Pitt.

The actress recently opened up about how she has done her best to ease her children’s fear amid the global health crisis. During an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Jolie revealed she added some new members to her family after Vivienne experienced an unexpected loss.

“Like most parents, I focus on staying calm so my children don’t feel anxiety from me on top of all they are worrying about. I put all my energy into them. During the lockdown, Vivienne’s bunny passed away during a surgery, and we adopted two sweet little ones who are disabled,” she told the publication.

“They need to be in pairs. They are so gentle and it has helped to focus on their care with her at this time. And on the dogs, and snake and lizard.”

Although Jolie has had her hands full throughout the lockdown, she revealed that she believes recent protests calling for the end of systemic racism will change the world for the better.

“The way people are rising. Saying that they are tired with the excuses and half-measures, and showing solidarity with each other in the face of inadequate responses by those in power,” Jolie explained.

“It feels like the world is waking up, and people are forcing a deeper reckoning within their societies. It is time to make changes in our laws and our institutions – listening to those who have been most affected and whose voices have been excluded,” Jolie added.
