Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are getting a divorce, but it wasn’t a snap decision. Angie and Brad did everything they could to try and repair their relationship, and a new report says that the couple was even planning to adopt a seventh child in order to save their marriage! Get all of the bittersweet details here.
The shocking news broke today, Sept. 20, that Angelina Jolie, 41, has officially filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, 52, but not after both parties gave the relationship their best effort. The super couple was making plans over the summer to adopt another child, as InTouch reports in their Sept. 26 issue, hoping that it would keep them together! “They’ve had some moments of happiness during the summer, and at one point they were considering adding a seventh child to their brood via adoption to reinforce their bond,” a source tells the mag. So heartbreaking.
Another insider previously told the mag that they felt “adopting another child [would] strengthen their relationship”, and planned to adopt him or her from “South Africa, Burundi, or Ethiopia”. The source also explained that Brad and Angie wanted to adopt 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.”
We’re so saddened that Angie and Brad couldn’t make it work. As we told you earlier, Angie has filed from Brad, citing irreconcilable differences, and is seeking full physical custody of Shiloh, 10, Vivienne, 8, Zahara, 11, Maddox, 15, Pax, 15, and Knox, 8, per TMZ. The actress asks that Brad only has joint legal custody of their six children.
