Brat Pitt, whom Jolie praised for being with her for every minute of the surgeries, said that her choice was ‘absolutely heroic’ and added that all he wants for her is a long and healthy life, with him and their children, a magazine reported.
He added that this is a happy day for their family.
Pitt’s mother also praised her decision and said that they are all proud of the actress.
She further said that this means a lot to their family, especially for her grandchildren.
