Couple spark rumours of adoption plans

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are to adopt a Vietnamese boy.

The couple, who already have three children, visited an orphanage in the country together in November 2006 and Angelina returned alone last month.

‘Angelina and Brad have filed papers with the US Citizenship and Immigration services to adopt a boy from the Tam Binh orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City,’ a source told Us Weekly magazine.

The Good Shepherd actress has made no secret of her desire to adopt children from all over the world. She recently said: ‘If we’re going to have 10 kids, we’d like to raise them while we’re young.’

Angelina adopted son Maddox, five, from Cambodia and daughter Zahara, two, from Ethiopia. Brad, 43, became joint guardian of the children when he and Angelina’s relationship became serious.

The 31-year-old actress gave birth to their daughter Shiloh in May last year.
