The six children, Maddox, Pax, Shiloh, twins Knox and Vivienne, and Zahara, that the couple already have.It is being reported by The Sun that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have “adopted” a baby boy from Cambodia, taking their already sizeable brood to seven.
The British tabloid claims Jolie, 40, has taken a boy named Allouy Shoun into her care after she came across his family of 13 brothers and sisters when spending time in the town of Siem Reap, where she was directing her latest directorial project, First They Killed My Father.
It also goes on to say that the By the Sea actor failed to tell her 52-year-old husband about her plans to add to their family, and instead made the agreement with the child’s family, who she felt for after witnessing the squalor in which they lived.
A source told Radar Online: “Angie didn’t want Brad to get wind of what she was doing because she knew he’d throw a fit!”
The Academy Award winner is said to have made the decision after daughters Shiloh, nine, and Zahara, 10, bonded with the family.
It is unclear what Pitt thinks about the new addition to the family, but then again he did once say he wanted a “soccer team” of children.
Jolie first adopted Maddox from a Cambodian orphanage in 2002, Zahara from an orphanage in Ethiopia in 2005, and in 2007, Vietnamese Pax was taken into the Jolie-Pitt crew.
In 2006, Jolie gave birth to Shiloh in Namibia, and two years later she had twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, in France.
Jolie and Pitt have yet to comment on adopting a baby boy.
Meanwhile, First They Killed My Father is due out this year. It is a Netflix film adapted from a memoir by Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung about surviving the deadly Khmer Rouge regime.
“I was deeply affected by Loung’s book,” Jolie said previously. “It deepened forever my understanding of how children experience war and are affected by the emotional memory of it. And it helped me draw closer still to the people of Cambodia, my son’s homeland.”
“Films like this are hard to watch but important to see,” she added.
