Washington, June 11 : Angelina Jolie wasn't too keen on having kids with beau Brad Pitt when they first got together because she was afraid that it would ruin their relationship.
The actress was already mum to adopted Cambodian boy Maddox when she met Pitt, and she tells Britain's Heat magazine that she was not sure whether she and Pitt should adopt more children or have biological ones, reports Contactmusic.
"You always wonder how having a lot of children in a fairly short space of time is going to affect your life together," she tells the mag.
"You have less time together, you're always busy, you're often very tired in the evenings. So it's something that you either learn or adapt to, or you're going to be in trouble as a couple."
However, Pitt soon put her fears to rest, and they went on to adopt baby girl Zahara, three-year-old Pax, and have a biological child Shiloh.
"We both grew into our role as parents and that eased a lot of my anxiety. What surprised me is how naturally Brad welcomed the responsibilities of being a father," Jolie says.
The couple are now expecting twins this August.
The new arrivals will mean that the Jolie and Pitt will be parents to six children.
