"Shiloh Wants To Be Called John"

Doting dad BRAD PITT has revealed his two-year-old daughter SHILOH is upset with her exotic name.... and is demanding to be named John.

In an interview with talkshow queen OPRAH WINFREY the usually private actor, opened up about life with ANGELINA JOLIE and their brood of six.

The 44-year-old gushed: "Right now Shi's in this thing. First of all, she only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it's a Peter Pan thing. So we've got to call her John. 'Shi, do you want' - 'John. I'm John.' And then I'll say, 'John, do you - would you like some orange juice?' And she goes, ‘No!'"

"So, you know, it's just that kind of stuff that's cute to parents, and it's probably really obnoxious to other people."

Brad also revealed that their lives are chaotic and Angelina is the organised one of the two because he is so "forgetful".

"It's like a half-an-hour just to get everyone buckled in and make sure they've got their snacks, and Z.Z. (ZAHARA, three) has got a blanket and Shiloh's got her silky,' he says.

'Angie's militant about it. She's right on top of it. Thank God, because I'm always forgetting something."

But, says Brad, he wouldn't change a thing: "It really tells you a lot about yourself and who you are and how you react to things,' he said. 'They make me better. They make me a better person as a father."

Meanwhile in an interview with British TV show GMTV, Angelina revealed (and a little over-shared) the difficulties of being a new mum to twins.

The actress admits she found breastfeeding exhausting and had to stop suckling newborns Knox and Vivienne after three months - because it got too much.

She said: "It was about as much as I could do.

"There's this football hold - it's a lot harder than it looks in the books. I did that a few times. I would take turns. It just takes a long time."

And when pressed about her plans to become Mrs Pitt, the star insisted that marriage is not important to her.

"We jumped into being a family first. And that just seems like the biggest commitment you can possibly make. It doesn't feel like anything's lacking," she said.
