Brangelina to adopt child from India

Hollywood's 'It' couple Brad Pitt [Images] and and Angelina Jolie [Images] are planning to extend their multinational family by adopting a child from India, according to media reports.

Jolie recently revealed plans to adopt from India when she met the child stars of multiple Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire [Images].     

When ten-year-old Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail asked the Tomb Raider star why she had not adopted from his home country, she replied, "Well, I'll let you into a little secret, we will soon."

The couple, who are popularly known as 'Brangelina', originally showed interest in adopting from India when they visited the country's Priya Darshini Orphanage in 2006, but were too busy to finalise the details, a source told the Sunday Express.

'They filled out all the paperwork but had to put the adoption on hold because of all their other commitments,' the
source said.

Brangelina already has three adopted children Maddox, seven, from Cambodia, Pax, four, from Vietnam and Zahara,
three, from Ethiopia as well as 2-year-old biological daughter Shiloh and their seven-month-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
