Brangelina’s Daughter Suffering from Hip Dysplasia Faces Surgery

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's elder daughter Zahara may need to undergo corrective surgery on her hip.

Zahara has hip dysplasia, a congenital condition where her thigh is connected to the hip improperly and may affect her ability to walk in the future.

The insider also revealed that the couple are now determined to " do whatever it takes" to ensure their little girl is "happy and healthy".

When Jolie adopted Zahara from Ethiopia in 2005, she was suffering from malnutrition and dehydration.

Apart from this doctors found out that she also had a rickets fracture in her arm, and salmonella poisoning.
