Movie star couple embrace the spirit of Games

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie held an Olympic-themed party for their son Maddox’s 11th birthday.

The couple, who were rumoured to be getting married on the weekend, have been staying in the UK during much of the Games and decided to take inspiration from the events.

Brad and Angelina have really got into the spirit of the Olympics while they’ve been in the UK and so have the kids,’ a source tells The Mirror.

‘Because Maddox’s birthday fell right in the middle of the Games, they wanted to give him a special treat to mark the event.

‘He’s mad about sport. They had a mini track for athletics and a basketball court. The centre has its own wind tunnel and surf centre.

‘They even had little stands where the kids could cheer so it felt like they were at the real Olympics.’

The do, which was held in a sports centre hired out by Brad and Ange, went down well with the children and was also attended by the family’s staff.

Birthday boy Maddox was also presented with a motorbike by his generous mum and dad.
