They have never made a secret of the fact that they wanted a large family, and it appears that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s brood may have just expanded from six to seven.
According to reports this week, the Hollywood couple have adopted a baby boy from a slum in Cambodia.
Sources claim that Angelina met young Allouy Shoun while filming her latest movie, First They Killed My Father, in the north-west of the country, in Siem Reap.
It is believed that daughters Shiloh and Zahara formed a bond with the little boy, with the 40-year-old going on to formally welcome him into her family.
It was US publication Radar Online that first broke the news, quoting a source who described the adoption process as “like some secret military operation”.
Radar has claimed that Angelina made the move without consulting her husband, but this is just speculation. It also quotes the source as saying that the Girl, Interrupted star has pledged to support Allouy’s family financially going forward.
The couple are already parents to 14-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, nine-year-old Shiloh, and seven-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
