Jolie-Pitt to adopt an Indian child
The couple hopes to take the newest member home in Los Angeles latest by Christmas, reports Vijay Dutt.india Updated: Oct 28, 2006 02:53 IST
There is likely to be another addition to the Brangelina family.
According to reports, Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, currently in Pune to film A Mighty Heart, have applied for adopting a baby from an Indian orphanage.
The couple hopes to take the newest member home in Los Angeles latest by Christmas. Jolie, who gave birth to Pitt's daughter (Shiloh) in May this year, adopted Cambodian boy (Maddox) in 2002 and an Ethiopian girl (Zahara) in 2005.
A source was quoted in the Mail here as saying: "Brad would prefer a boy no older than 18 months to even the sexes, but Angie has told him she cannot guarantee that she won't fall in love with a little girl." The name of the child, they have decided, would be India, irrespective of whether they adopt a boy or girl.
Jolie (31) had declared that she wants children from all over the world. She said: "I want to create a rainbow family. That is, children of different religions and cultures from different countries."
"I believe I'm meant to find my children in the world and not necessarily have them genetically," she added.
Jolie is a former fashion model and a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency. She has received three Golden Globe Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards and an Academy Award.
