The former couple have six children, Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, and Zahara, 17, all of whom were adopted, and Shiloh, 16, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 13.

As young children, they were regularly spotted out in Los Angeles or traveling the globe with their parents. However, as the years have gone by the kids have not been seen as regularly, leaving fans wondering what they look like and what they're up to.

In 2019, Maddox moved to South Korea for college, studying biochemistry at Seoul's Yonsei University.
