"Spelman is a great choice & I’m sure she will excel in a mighty way there," wrote one follower as another shared: "Seems like yesterday your beautiful daughter was in your arms. Congratulations."

Angelina adopted Zahara in 2005 when she was six-months-old from an orphanage in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Zahara was later also adopted by her father Brad Pitt when he married Angelina, and she has Jolie-Pitt as her last name.

The former couple have six children, Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, and Zahara, 17, all of whom were adopted, and Shiloh, 16, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 13.

As young children, they were regularly spotted out in Los Angeles or traveling the globe with their parents. However, as the years have gone by the kids have not been seen as regularly, leaving fans wondering what they look like and what they're up to.

In 2019, Maddox moved to South Korea for college, studying biochemistry at Seoul's Yonsei University.

In 2014, Vivienne starred alongside her famous mom in the movie Maleficent, and played the younger version of Aurora. In 2016, Pax, Zahara and Knox voiced characters in Kung Fu Panda 3.
