Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie plans to adopt an Indian baby to add to her growing international brood, media reported today. The big-hearted actress and partner Brad Pitt have already applied to adopt a tot from an Indian orphanage, The Daily Mail said, quoting sources.
The celebrity couple, currently in India for filming Jolie's latest movie, A Mighty Heart, hope to be able to bring the child home by Christmas, the source was quoted as saying. "Brad would prefer a boy no older than 18 months to even out the sexes, but Angie has told him she can't guarantee she won't fall in love with a little girl," the source said.
Talking about the celebrity couple's latest adoption plans, a source told US magazine Globe, "Whichever they end up with, they'd like to name the child India to honour its homeland."
Between them, 31-year-old Jolie and 42-year-old Pitt already have three children to look after -- five-year-old Maddox, who was adopted from a Cambodian orphanage in 2002, Zahara Marley Jolie, an Ethiopian baby girl adopted last year, and their biological daughter Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, who was born in May this year.
The Tomb Raider star had said in the past that she would want to have one big multi-cultural family, with kids from all across the world. "I want to create a rainbow family. That's children of different religions and cultures from different countries. "I believe I'm meant to find my children in the world and not necessarily have them genetically," she said.
