Angelina and Brad really are going to adopt a Vietnamese boy

It turns out the latest Brad and Angelina adoption rumor was true.

Originally the story was that they were going to adopt from the Tam Binh orphanage that they visited in Ho Chi Minh City. Then the head of that orphanage denied that they were adopting from his facility, saying that he wishes it were true.

Now the top adoption official in Vietnam has confirmed that Angelina has started the process there to legally adopt a boy, and she’s filing as a single parent

Angelina Jolie has filed papers to adopt a Vietnamese child, the country’s top adoption official said Friday.

A U.S. adoption agency representing the 31-year-old actress filed the papers at Vietnam’s International Adoption Agency, said Vu Duc Long, the agency’s director.

“She just filed the papers this week,” Long said.

Brad Pitt, have three children: 5-year-old son Maddox, adopted from Cambodia; 2-year-old daughter Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia; and another daughter, Shiloh, who was born to the couple in May.

Long would not name the U.S. adoption agency working with Jolie, who applied to adopt as a single parent.

The head of the Tam Binh orphanage has withheld comments on this latest news, and said he is waiting to see the papers.

This must be the real reason that Angelina wasn’t at the Oscars, although considering how much she travels she probably went to Dafur for that UN mission and then popped over to Vietname to take care of the adoption details. Brad and his parents have been taking the kids. From these latest photos of Brad with Shiloh, he’s doing a good job. There’s also a cute picture of Shiloh eyeing a little girl’s cookie like we saw in that candid with Zahara.

  2. Carol says:

    Don’t they ever give that poor kid her own cookies? She’s always lusting after someone else’s.

    how cute! Shiloh is always transfixed by someone’s cookie, so adorable. Brad is such a doting dad, the way he looks at her melts my heart. I hear that they want an older boy (3-4) this time, I guess to match with Mad’s age. I hope they won’t go for another baby, I think it would be hard to manage.

    Shiloh? Who’s looking at Shiloh? LOL…
    Brad’s the cutie and the hottie in all those pics.

  6. Canadian Fan says:

    My burning question is why is Angelina filing for adoption as a single parent???

  7. miss luigi says:

    I was wondering the same thing Canadian Fan…but I’m distracted by the cuteness that is Shiloh.

  8. Ceenitall says:

    Vietnam will not adpot to unmarried couples so she is filing as a single parent. Does anyone else think that Shiloh, even though she is really cute, may have a problem with her mouth? She looks like she may have a slight cleft palate or something like that.

  9. countrybabe says:

    Canada, I think that’s the only way they can adopt in Vietnam. You can’t adopt if you’re shacking up the way they are. You have to be single or married. There is another set of laws for celebrities, it would take regular people years to bring a kid over here.
    That’s silly Miss hypocrit finds a way around the laws like Madonna

  10. Are you people stupid? says:

    B and A are not married. Therefore, on a legal document, she is “single”. There are only two choices–single or married. What, do you think they are going to have ten million different options, like: “Shacking up with person X, and shagging roomates X and Z”?

  11. anon says:

    why dont they just get married ? if marriage is not a big deal, why not just go and do it. when youre going around collecting children like pieces of artwork, you need to have some kind of foundation for them. marriage provides that foundation.
    im sorry, but something stinks like fish with this. for christs sake, her own daughter is still a baby. take care of her angelina, you selfish pig.

  12. Gigohead says:

    I just saw all the photos. Poor Shiloh. Give her a cookie. She’s adorable.

  13. eh. says:

    i dont think that this baby is that cute. eh.

  14. chuckie says:

    this was a staged photo op.

    My dog’s name is Shiloh. And that crazy snatch needs to stop collecting kids like they’re purses.

  16. Jesussomepeoplearedumb says:

    Oh god, a couple of shrivelled up, ugly, haters in here. Not to mention fucking stupid. As if going through a ceremony and getting a piece of paper makes them any more suitable parents than they already are. Puh-lease.

  17. tess says:

    To Ceenitall: Looks like to me that Shiloh has mommy’s lips …. lucky baby!! grrr 🙂

  18. bree says:

    is it me or does shiloh have a really red nose in most of the photos?

  19. lu says:

    She´s really precious, is a dream girl.

  20. Loli says:

    Brad just looks so beautifully human in these pictures. I’ve never been a big Brad Pitt fan (on the hotness side I’m more a vince vaughn, peter sarsgaard type). But that “daddy in love” look he has for shiloh… Just makes my want to hug him and tell him “you’re doing a great job”·

  21. Kimberly Stokley says:

    Beautiful little Shiloh is so lucky she looks just like her Dad. Brad looks so HAPPY when he has Shiloh in his arms. Brad looks at Shiloh with so much LOVE. Different then Angelina’s adopted kids. Shiloh is all BRAD needs. He should let Angie take care of what is important to her. You can see what has her love. BRAD, SHILOH is all you need. Besides your every females dream. You do not need to settle with Angelina’s ways. All she needs is HER adopted kids. Brad deserves the baby that looks beautiful just like he does. GOD BLESS YOU BRAD and your BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER SHILOH.
    LOVE and PEACE

  22. I agree with you Kimberly Stokely so much b/c you are so right, and no matter how much Brangelina’s and Angelina’s fan might feel about it. that is true. Those adopted children are Angelina’s responsibilities and all that she seemed to carry about it, but they are not hers; either. They are definitely not Brad’s. I can see it that Brad has a different and special kind of love for Shiloh even though Angelina doesn’t. I believe he just adopted those children so Angelina would have his child. He looks at Shiloh like he is so in love.
