Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt turns eight years old on August 5 and would like to be the first to wish him a great big Happy Birthday!

His birth name was Rath Vibol and he was living in a Cambodian orphanage when Angelina Jolie first laid eyes on him.  She'd visited that Asian country was when she shot Laura Croft: Tomb Raider there.  She returned as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and that's when little Rath stole her heart.  She adopted him on March 10, 2002.

Angelina was married to Billy Bob Thornton at the time but divorced him not long after.  A year later, in 2004, Maddox was accompanying his mom to the Mr. & Mrs. Smith set and the rest - as they say - his history.

Angie's costar on the film was Brad Pitt, who won Angie over only after passing muster with Maddox.  One day, early in 2005, Angelina has said, "Maddox out of the blue called him Dad.  It was amazing."  That sealed the deal.

Brad later officially adopted Mad, as his parents call him.  He's now one of six very fortunate and much loved Jolie-Pitt kids who will no doubt all be blowing out the candles with him.
