Brad's lady love has the support of her in-laws, too!
Following Angelina Jolie's confession that she recently underwent a preventative double mastectomy after learning she had the gene that put her at an increased risk for breast and ovarian cancer, Brad Pitt's mom Jane praised her son's partner for making the difficult decision to go through with the procedure.
"We're so very proud of Angie, this means so much to our family especially our grandchildren. We love her dearly," Jane Pitt said in a statement.
The actress' brother James Haven echoes the sentiments!
"My sister, like our mother, always put her children first. I am so grateful to be her brother," Haven said in his own statement.
Health scares are never easy, but at least Miss Jolie has a wonderful family to fall back on!
