Jolie, Pitt planning next adoption?
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are planning to adopt another child from Africa.

According to a report in the Daily Mail today, the couple will travel out to Ethiopia in three months' time to begin the process. They hope that the new addition will help Zahara Marley, the tot Angelina adopted from Ethiopia in June 2005, to feel more comfortable and connected to the family as she grows up.

Jolie adopted her first child, Maddox Chivan, from Cambodia in March 2002. Zahara became her second adopted child more than three years later, and Jolie gave birth to daughter Shiloh Nouvel in May 2006. She then adopted three-year-old Pax Thien from Vietnam in March this year.

A source told the newspaper: "Angie in particular feels very strongly that while Shiloh will grow up seeing the family resemblance between herself and her natural parents, and Maddox and Pax will feel a connection through their birthplaces, Zahara has no such close-knit bond.

"They hope that by finding an Ethiopian brother or sister - preferably sister - for her, it will help Zahara feel more comfortable and happy in her own skin."

Rumours that Jolie and Pitt's relationship is in trouble started to be reported in the press earlier this month, and further speculation that their romance is on the rocks has continued to be printed, despite the couple denying the stories. Insiders have claimed that a new child could help to mend the reported rift between the pair.
