Angelina Jolie has filed papers to adopt a Vietnamese baby, an adoption official confirmed today.Vu Duc Long, director of Vietnam's International Adoption Agency, revealed they have exchanged papers with a US adoption agency representing the 'Tomb Raider' star. Long said: "She just filed the papers this week." Last month, it was revealed Angelina and her partner Brad Pitt had filed papers with US Citizenship and Immigration services to enable them to adopt a boy from the Tam Binh orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City. The 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' stars visited the orphanage in November and Angelina returned last month.
The couple - who have three children, five-year-old son Maddox, two-year-old daughter Zahara and ten-month-old daughter Shiloh - have openly expressed a desire to adopt more children from different countries. Jolie said recently: "If we're going to have ten kids, we'd like to raise them while we're young." Angelina adopted Maddox from Cambodia and Zahara from Ethiopia. Brad became joint guardian of the children last year. The 31-year-old actress gave birth to their daughter Shiloh last May.
