Well, the rumors are flying again about America’s most beloved couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The highly successful duo have pushed beyond talks of divorce with open signs of affection in public. Friends of Brad and Angie spoke with Hollywood’s inTouch stating, “They’re celebrating saving their marriage with the best present possible: a seventh child,” the friend said. “Now that the divorce is off and they’re back on track, they feel adopting another child will strengthen their relationship even more.”

The other six children (Maddox, 14; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shiloh, 10; Knox and Vivienne, 8) are reportedly excited to be getting another sibling. One more play pal to add to the fun! Of Brad & Angelina’s six children, three are adopted.

But where will they go to find their child? Although friends of the couple say they would love to adopt from a war-torn country in the Middle East, the process is quite long. So they’re talking about searching in South Africa, Ethiopia, or Burundi. Their plan is to adopt a child in the same age range as their other children. “[Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie] feel that by adopting a child who is 10 or older, he or she will mix in better with their rambunctious kids, who are getting bigger by the day,” the report states. “They also believe that adopting an older child will make people aware of orphans who are often overlooked.”
