It may seem as though everyone in the world has seen Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, but there had been one notable exception: the baby’s grandmother.

Until now. Angelina Jolie finally introduced her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, to Shiloh this week. Jolie had wanted her mother to be at the birth of Shiloh, but Marcheline is suffering from terminal cancer. She was too ill to fly to Namibia.

According to The Sun, a source revealed: “Angelina and her mom are really close. Their time apart during the latter stages of her pregnancy was tough. She originally wanted to give birth to Shiloh in France – the country where her mum was born and raised.

But Marcheline simply wasn’t well enough to make the long-haul flight to be by her daughter’s side.”

The source went on to state that Jolie has been determined to let her mom hold Shiloh before it was too late. Emotions overflowed once this event finally took place.
