Angelina Jolie and the Heartfelt Reunion: Will Zahara Reconnect with Her Birth Mother?

Amidst the media frenzy surrounding the separation of Hollywood power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, a lesser-known story emerges – that of Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt, the adopted daughter of the actress.

Zahara’s biological mother, Mentewab Dawit Lebiso, recently expressed her longing to reconnect with her daughter, shedding light on a deeply personal aspect of the celebrity breakup.

Through media interviews, Mentewab, residing in Ethiopia’s Central region, shared her hopes for a reunion. Despite facing challenging circumstances, she expressed her desire for Angelina Jolie to have legal custody of Zahara.


However, Mentewab’s greatest wish is to communicate with her daughter again. She stated, “I just want my daughter to know that I am alive and still waiting to talk to her once.”

Zahara’s journey began in 2005 when Mentewab, then a single and impoverished mother, made the difficult decision to give her up for adoption. Angelina Jolie, renowned for her philanthropic efforts, welcomed Zahara into her family.

Despite the privileges Zahara has received, Mentewab’s love and yearning for her daughter remain palpable. She confessed, “I miss Zahara very much. I think about her every day.”


Living a solitary life without any more children, Mentewab holds onto memories of Zahara, marking her birthdays and occasionally seeking updates online.

Despite her longing, she respects the bond between Zahara and Angelina, acknowledging the actress as more than just a mother figure.

In her modest home, devoid of Zahara’s pictures, Mentewab holds steadfast to her desire for a connection to avoid constant reminders of her absence.


While she understands that Zahara’s upbringing is best entrusted to Angelina, she hopes for occasional communication to convey her enduring love.

The story of Zahara’s adoption adds another layer to Angelina Jolie’s philanthropic legacy following her previous adoption of Maddox from Cambodia in 2002. Despite the challenges of fame and family dynamics, Zahara has grown into a confident young woman, supported by her adoptive mother.

As the legalities surrounding the custody of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s children remain undisclosed, the heartfelt desire for connection between Zahara and her birth mother serves as a poignant reminder of the complexities within blended families.
