Angelina Jolie is now planning to remove both her ovaries following her double mastectomy, according to a new report.People.com reports that Jolie, 37, is planning to remove her ovaries because doctors told her that her faulty BRCA1 gene – the mutant gene responsible for breast cancer – puts her in a 50% risk of developing ovarian cancer. Some doctors recommend that the procedure be done after the age 40 or when a woman is done having children.
And as for Jolie, the decision won’t be that hard ‘cos she already has six children with fiance Brad Pitt: Three biological children, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, and three adopted children, Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight.
For now, the mag reports, Jolie and Pitt are currently focused on routine family stuff and even during the three-month long mastectomy ordeal, life was ‘normal’ for her kids.
‘Her kids always come first to her,’ said an insider.
