"I never thought I'd have children," she said. "I never thought I'd be in love, I never thought I'd meet the right person. Having come from a broken home, you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don't look for them."

Angelina and Brad have six children. The two got engaged in 2012 and met making "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" (2005).
