Angelina Jolie to adopt Ethiopian child


Angelina Jolie is said to be planning to adopt another child in the New Year.

The actress, who gave birth to Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline in July, is thought to be keen to give a home to an African baby to bond with daughter Zahara, 3.

Angelina, 33, is expected to travel to Ethiopia – Zahara’s birthplace – with partner Brad Pitt, 44, as soon as the twins are 6 months old.

‘This time Angelina and Brad plan to adopt a child from the same place they adopted Zahara from,’ a source tells the Sunday Mirror.

‘They want another black child so that Zahara will have another child like her in the family. But it won’t be a newborn, it will be a child who is at least 2 years old – maybe 3.’

Earlier this month Angelina talked about expanding her brood.

‘You can’t start the process until any new children are 6 months old, to understand how they have settled and what you can absorb,’ she said.

‘That’s the smart thing to do. You have to wait until it’s the right time to bring in a new child.’

She and Brad are also parents to Shiloh, 2, and adopted kids Maddox, 7, and Pax, 4.
