Will Angelina and Brad’s next adopted child be Syrian?
According to a source close to the couple, Brad and Angelina want to go ahead with the adoption of a Syrian child.
As a special envoy for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina Jolie has made several trips to Syrian refugee camps in recent years.
Now the Hollywood star has reportedly agreed with her husband Brad Pitt that they adopt a child from war-devastated Syria.
Angelina and Brad are presently the parents to six children, three of which are biological and the remainder adopted from Cambodia, Vietnam and Ethiopia.
An associate close to the couple told the UK’s The Express that with Angelina’s recent health issues sorted out, the family is now ready to expand, with most likely a Syrian daughter.
“She has been moved to tears on several occasions over the plight of youngsters orphaned in the Syrian conflict,” the associate told The Express, adding that the couple wants the adoption to go ahead by the summer of 2015.
The Oscar-winning actress revealed last March that she can no longer biologically carry children as her ovaries had been removed as a precautionary measure after losing her mother to ovarian cancer in 2007.
“Angelina’s feeling good about turning 40 in June with a clean bill of health but what will make her happiness complete is seeing a new little face at the dinner table,” the associate was quoted as saying.
