In Instagram photos and video shared by the school's Vice President for Student Affairs, Darryl Holloman, Jolie, 47, and Zahara were seen meeting him and the school's president, Dr. Helene Gayle.
"I'm gonna start crying! I have not started crying yet," the Oscar winner said in the video when asked how she felt about being a Spelman mom.
Teasing the Eternals star, Dr. Gayle said there will be "plenty of time to cry" at the school's upcoming event, which she joked was held to "purposely induce [tears]."
"Bring it all out," Dr. Gayle chuckled.
"I heard tomorrow night's the big night," Jolie replied. "I'm holding it together." When asked again about her thoughts on being a Spelman mom, Jolie said, "I'm so excited."
Dr. Gayle noted that Spelman was just as pumped to have Zahara on board. "We are honored that Zahara Jolie-Pitt and her family chose Spelman College, and we welcome Zahara enthusiastically into the Spelman sisterhood," she said.
"As the #1 HBCU in the country, there's no place quite like Spelman, which has been an incubator for Black women's education and excellence for more than 140 years," the school's president added. "As well, it has a global network of alumnae that have and continue to change the world."
Holloman resonated with Dr. Gayle's thoughts. "Spelman College is a magical place that provides excellence in education and a student life environment that is inclusive and diverse and allows women from different cultures and circumstances to be quickly integrated into Spelman life," he said, adding that it was heartwarming to "see Zahara, among 575 freshmen, on campus bonding with her Spelman sisters."
Last month, the mother-of-six announced on Instagram that Zahara would be a part of the Spelman family. "Zahara with her Spelman sisters!" the star captioned her post. "Congratulations to all new students starting this year. A very special place and an honor to have a family member as a new Spelman girl."
Holloman and Dr. Gayle shared their thoughts on Zahara's admission to Spelman in a conversation with ET.
