There is more good news for Brad Pitt and his lady love Angelina Jolie, besides a visit from the stork, the couple can now go ahead and legally add the name Jolie -Pitt to Angelina's adopted kids' names.
"Their names are Maddox Jolie-Pitt and Zahara Jolie-Pitt," Jolie attorney Evan Spiegel was quoted by Eonline, as saying.
Maddox, 4, originally from Cambodia, was adopted by Jolie in 2002 during the end days of her marriage to Billy Bob Thornton. Zahara, 2, originally from Ethiopia, was adopted by Jolie last year during the early days of her unconfirmed romance with Pitt.
Jolie and Pitt were not in court for the hearing, reports said. The newly christened Jolie-Pitt children presumably weren't there, either.
Jolie initiated the name-change process last December--her court filing the first formal sign that she and Pitt were more than just former Mr. and Mrs. Smith costars.
According to City News Service, Pitt is referred to as "the adoptive father-to-be" in Jolie's petition.
