Although Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have had their fair share of relationship woes, including a divorce scare, the couple seem to have a solution for mending their marriage — adoption! A new report even claims they’re TOTALLY set on adding a 7th child to their fam as early as next year!
Brad Pitt, 52, and Angelina Jolie, 41, already have six kids, three of which they adopted, but apparently the 7th time’s the charm as Brangelina are reportedly gearing up to add one more kid to their brood! And according to a new report in In Touch magazine, the couple are confident another child will help strengthen their relationship and put their divorce talks in the past for good!
“They’re celebrating saving their marriage with the best present possible: a seventh child,” a reportedly close friend of the couple revealed to the publication. “Now that the divorce is off and they’re back on track, they feel adopting another child will strengthen their relationship even more.” And not only that, they allegedly already have their sights set on an adoption place t00 — Africa!
“Brad and Angelina are putting the wheels in motion to adopt an older child from South Africa, Burundi, or Ethiopia, where Zahara was born,” explained the source. “They initially wanted to adopt from a more war-torn region in the Middle East, but the adoption process is much more difficult in those areas.”
And we’re not surprised at all that Brad and Angie are looking to adopt in such a familiar place as Africa, after all, their first biological child, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 10, was born in Namibia back in 2006. But their adoption location isn’t the only thing the Hollywood couple have thought about. Apparently they already know that they want to take in an older child.
“They feel that by adopting a child who is 10 or older, he or she will mix in better with their rambunctious kids, who are getting bigger by the day.” the insider dished. “Brad and Angie also believe that adopting an older child will make people aware of orphans who are often overlooked.” Hoping to seal the deal next year, their kids: Maddox, 14; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shiloh; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, are reportedly super psyched about another sibling!
“The kids can’t wait to add another brother or sister to their gang of six,” the insider added. “Right now Brad and Angie are leaning toward adopting a boy. But truthfully, they’d be happy with any addition. Brad’s always said he wanted enough kids for a soccer team — and he’s getting his wish!” Aw!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think Brad and Angelina are actually going to adopt a seventh kid?
