Angelina Jolie Turns 40 Today!

Happy 40th birthday to actress, director, humanitarian and mother of six, Angelina Jolie!

While we're not exactly sure how the Oscar winner will be celebrating her milestone year, reports from sites like the Express Tribune say that husband Brad Pitt has bought Jolie a seaplane with accompanying flying lessons, of course.

Seaplane or no, we're assuming that any birthday spent with Brad Pitt would be amazing.

Jolie, who's mom to Maddox (13), Pax (11), Zahara (10), Shiloh (9) and 6-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, has received a stream of tributes on social media this morning, including this tweet that included a photo of her as a newborn being held by dad Jon Voight. (And is it just us, or does Shiloh look just like her grandfather?)

Speaking of parenthood, ABC News gathered a few of her quotes about motherhood:

"The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you're the person who takes them to go poop! That's who you are!"

"We want to make sure we don't build a family so big that we don't have absolutely enough time to raise them each really well. Children are clearly a commitment, a bigger commitment [than marriage]. It's for life."

"With my family, I'm trying to raise them to have respect for all people and make friends around the world and feel at home with the world and really live a truly global [life] because I think it's what forms them, and it's really important to me."

"The center of my life is my kids. I woke up at 3 in the morning with four kids with jet lag and two babies. I put myself together for a few hours and go out. And then I go home. This is my job."

Happy birthday, Angelina Jolie!
