Celebrity Christmas news! Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been busy playing Santa Claus. While the younger kids are likely to be getting a mix of Harry Potter movie themed toys and fantasy role-play items for Christmas, the older children will most likely be getting the highly collectible items said Entertainmentwise in a news report released on Dec. 24. The two Hollywood star celebs have allegedly been spotted out buying copious quantities of sports memorabilia to give to their celebrity children as holiday gifts for the 2012 season. Minus the fun factor of getting toys, the kids are expected to be good sports when gift opening time arrives.
Sources say the Brangelina brood are fans of the soccer team Liverpool FC. The entertainment news website Contact Music shared the gift giving details, saying, "The Sun reports that Pitt and Jolie got their kids six complete Liverpool kits, with the couple also reportedly ordering tracksuits, mugs and caps to be sent to their home back in the US." But why their enthusiastic obsession with the soccer team?
Entertainmentwise reports, "The couple have spent a great deal of time in the UK this year and it seems they picked up a love of football while here, in particular Liverpool player Steven Gerrard and have decided to buy their children a hoard of memorabilia." The adults love watching but apparently the children enjoy seeing the game played even more.
But it is not just UK soccer that ignites the celebrity couple's competitive passions. Since buying a home in New Orleans, Louisiana, the Hollywood duo have been spotted taking their children to American football games as well as the UK soccer matches. "What good parenting skills these two must have, to co-parent such a large and clearly active family so thoughtfully and well..." said one Hollywood insider.
The busy family is expected to take time out to enjoy a two-week vacation together over the holiday season. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have allegedly arranged to take the children along with them on a trip around the world in lieu of buying into the consumerism encouraged by toy manufacturers.
