Angelina Jolie plans to add a girl from Syria to her brood of six kids, according to Al Arabiya and OK!, the strangest gossip bedfellows we could imagine. Angelina and Brad Pitt recently visited Iraqi refugees in the country, which borders Iraq, and now she's decided her next kid will come from Syria. Brad's name is reportedly not on the papers filed with the US Immigration and Naturalization Service, which could bode ill.
Brad and Angelina have five kids under the age of five, plus oldest son Maddox, who's eight. Add two high-powered movie careers and all their charity work, and you wouldn't blame either of them for feeling overwhelmed. "[Brad] has made it clear that six children are more than he can handle," a family "insider" tattled to Metro UK. "The idea of one more seemed ludicrous, but Angie is determined to complete her rainbow family." Brad Pitt Opens Up About Angie, Sex, Life And Love
Angelina adopted Maddox from Cambodia while she was married to Billy Bob Thornton, but Thornton was not listed in the adoption paperwork. Likewise, she adopted daughter Zahara from Ethiopia in 2005 as a singleton. Only Pax, the couple's middle son, was adopted jointly by both Brad and Angelina, in 2007. (Brad adopted Maddox and Zahara in 2006.) So the fact that Brad's name isn't on the latest adoption paperwork could mean they're disagreeing over adding a seventh kid to the family, or merely that Syria doesn't allow unmarried couples to adopt.

So, you know, that's a lot of kids. If it were us, we wouldn't be able to stop at seven; there'd need to be an eighth to even out the sides in volleyball, and the genders (we also eat our Oreos in even numbers. Wanna make something of it?). We're betting Brad will come around on number seven and promptly knock up Angelina to give them a proper basketball team with plenty of subs. Or if they pick up one more they could field a pretty good squad against the Mets next year.
