LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Adoption advocate Angelina Jolie says she never thought she would give birth, but that her partner Brad Pitt helped her change her views.
"I think one of the life changing things that he did, one of many, is that I was absolutely never going to get pregnant. I never felt that it was the right thing to do," Jolie, 33, says in November's W, which features photos taken by Pitt of her breast feeding. "Now I wouldn't trade that experience for the world. It taught me a lot about life, just the process of it, and now we have three other beautiful children that wouldn't otherwise be here."
The hollywood couple have six children, three adopted from impoverished countries and three biological children.
Jolie gave birth to twins, Vivienne and Knox in July, two years after the couple's daughter Shiloh was born. In an excerpt of the interview posted by Entertainment Tonight, Jolie describes newborn Knox as "very chill" and adds he "loves music" like his father. While Vivienne is described as a "studier" and "more demanding."
She goes on to say that she isn't worried about the effects pregnancy has taken on her body. "I'm with a man who's evolved enough to look at my body and see it as more beautiful because of the journey it has taken and what it has created," Jolie says."He truly sees it that way. So I genuinely feel sexier."
Jolie also says that her relationship with Pitt has changed her life in other ways. "I do think that I'm in a good partnership now.. I think it just needed to be the right man."
