Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: Lucky Seven?

December 5, 2011:  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie want to adopt another child.

The couple – who currently have biological kids Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne and adopted trio Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, and six-year-old Zahara – reportedly promised their adopted daughter they would take on the care of another youngster from Ethiopia, the poverty-stricken African nation where she was born.

A source said: “They are really excited about it. Brad and Angie made a promise to Zahara years ago that they would adopt another child from the region so she could have a sibling to relate to.”

The couple are also said to believe having seven kids will bring them more “luck and happiness”.

The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: “Also, seven has always been Brad’s lucky number. He and Angelina think it would bring them luck and happiness.”

Brad has previously admitted he always wanted to raise a large family.

He has said: “I know it seems extreme from the outside, but I’ve always kind of operated this way. When I know, I know, and why mess around?

“I had a friend who had a big family when I was a kid. I just loved the chaos around the breakfast table and the fighting and the ribbing, and the mom making pancakes for everyone or the dad making pancakes. And I just decided then if I was ever going to do it – this left some indelible mark on me – if I was ever going to do it, that’s the way I was going to do it.”

Thank you to this couple – today’s modern super heroes – that Passes It On and helps others!

Willing to Adopt More…

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are raising 6 kids – 3 adopted and the rest 3 are biological. Maddox, who is eight year old was adopted from Cambodia, Pax, five, from Vietnam and Zahara, four, from Ethiopia. Their three biological children are two year old Shiloh and eight-month-old twins Vivienne and Knox. Pitt and Jolie have always shown their willingness to adopt more children. Pitt was quoted joking that the couple were already “overdue” another child. “We average about two a year, so I guess we’re overdue, aren’t we?”.

Angelina Jolie’s adoption consultant, Dr. Ronald Federici, could not be reached for comment.
