We were there for the Shiloh Nouvel‘s first steps. Did you think we’d miss out on reporting about her first birthday?!?
The celebration for the world’s most beautiful baby took place in Prague.
It was made into an especially big deal because Angelina Jolie wanted to honor her late mother Marcheline Bertrand (who died of cancer in January), who “would spent weeks to plan the right birthday party, and write four drafts to get the right birthday card ready,” Jolie recently told Dateline NBC’s Ann Curry.
Brangelina settled in at a special rental in the Czech Republic capital, where Jolie is on location shooting the thriller Wanted.
“I was contacted by the bodyguards,” Katarina Rozsivalova of Prague’s Balon Servic (a balloon service) tells Us Magazine, proving once and for all that Brad Pitt just loves balloons..
“They told me they needed 50 balloons for Saturday and Sunday. An assortment of colors.” Also delivered: cookies and a cake.
We know, we know: this is celebrity gossip news almost as fascinating as what dress Lauren Conrad will wear to the MTV Movie Awards.
But birthdays come around just once a year, people! Even for Hollywood’s most rapidly expanding brood. So it’s hard to fault Brangelina for making the day special for Shiloh, as Zahara, 2, Pax, 3, and Maddox, 5, all were there for the occasion.
“One time, when the kids were bored, [Pitt] had them all throwing empty pizza boxes as Frisbees,” says a source. “Obviously, Shiloh was too young to join in, but you could hear her laughing.”
And that’s really what it’s all about. Laughter and happiness. It makes us wonder why Terra Jole wasn’t invited to the party.
