Brad & Angelina: Baby on the Way

Brad & Angelina: Baby on the Way

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making the proper arrangements to adopt a child (probably a baby boy) from from Vietnam and find a sibling for Maddox, 5, Zahara, 2, and 10-month-old Shiloh. The superstar couple and their big news make their way onto the cover of this week’s Us Weekly and People Magazine.

Us Weekly first reported the news last month but the Associated Press didn’t officially report on Angelina filing adoption papers until last week.

Brad, Angelina, Zahara, and Shiloh were last spotted out on a Monday morning stroll in the French Quarter while Maddox was in school.

Since January, the Jolie-Pitt family has settled into their $3.5 million mansion in New Orleans, where Brad has been filming The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (kissing another woman!). But soon they’ll return home to Los Angeles, where Brad will wrap up his Button filming.

    Who cares? Are they the only ones parenting children in the world?

  • http://www.justjared.com b

    I do care. I love this family soooooooooooo much

  • please

    We care because they represent more than parents. Thanks Angellina for being a voice in Darfur. Thanks for being a brave woman .
    This is the latest news:
    KHARTOUM, Sudan – Gunmen have killed two African Union peacekeepers and critically wounded a third in Sudan’s western Darfur region, the AU said Wednesday.

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The peacekeeping mission said it was “deeply concerned” the gunmen were believed to belong to the Sudan Liberation Army, the rebel faction that signed the Darfur Peace Agreement in May 2006.

    That signatories of the accord would attack peacekeepers is a severe blow to international attempts to promote the peace process and persuade other warring factions to join it.

    The gunmen abducted and killed the two peacekeepers while they were “on administrative duty” Monday in the Darfur town of Graida, the AU said. “A third soldier was critically injured,” the statement said, without giving details of how the attack was carried out.

    “This deplorable and condemnable act was perpetrated by gunmen believed to be elements belonging to Sudan Liberation Movement or Army (Minni Minnawi faction), which is in full control of Graida,” the statement said, referring to the leader of the SLA who signed the peace agreement.

    In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where the African Union has its headquarters, an official said the slain peacekeepers were Nigerian.

    “They were just shopping. They were unarmed and they were attacked by unidentified men,” said Mahmoud Kane, the head of the African Union’s Darfur Integrated Task Force.

    The deaths brought to 11 the number of AU military personnel who have been killed on duty since the force was deployed to Darfur in 2004. Another peacekeeper is listed as missing.

    With the 7,000-member AU force overwhelmed in a region the size of Texas, the U.N. Security Council last year recommended replacing it with more than 20,000 U.N. peacekeepers. The Sudanese government has rejected this, insisting the AU needs only technical assistance and equipment from the United Nations.

    Also Monday, about 30 gunmen of groups that signed the May accord surrounded an office for the implementation of the peace agreement in El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur, and “threatened the officer-in-charge,” the AU said.

    The African Union is “deeply concerned that these, and other recent incidents of this nature, occurred in El Fasher and Graida, both of them strongholds of the signatories.”

    The AU said the slain peacekeepers’ vehicle was stolen. It called on the Minnawi faction to investigate the attack and ensure the vehicle is returned.

    More than 200,000 people have died and more than 2.5 million people have been displaced in four years of fighting in Darfur. The conflict began when members of the region’s ethnic African tribes took up arms against what they saw as decades of neglect and discrimination by the Arab-dominated government in Khartoum.

    The government is accused of unleashing a pro-government Arab militia that has committed many of the atrocities in the conflict.

    Several rebel factions refused to sign the May accord, leading to an escalation in fighting.

    Anon, NOOOOOOOOO, they’re not the only parents in the world, but they are, at least, trying to make a difference! what have you done to make a difference in a child and/or anyone’s life or a community???? if you don’t fit any of the described above, then do yourself a favor and keep quiet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • T&L

    Good for them. If they are willing and able to adopt, more power to them.

    I hope everything works well for them both.

  • please

    If you don’t care you don’t need to post. Seriously Angelina is doing more than her fair share to help the orphans, women and refugees around the world. Angelina you have our supports as much as you want. Best wishes to you and your family.

  • Lady G

    Thanks Jared and Audrey!

    I am happy for the Jolie-Pitt Family and I hope that more blessing comes their way. They can give a child(ren) a good home and I say more power to them.

    Rock on BAMZS+1!

    Awwwww.

  • tréjolie

    Angie is so brave an her work for UNHCR is adorable. You have to love and admire that woman.
    What a woman.

  • T

    I love this couple, but come on…poor little Shiloh is only 10 months…if they keep adding children, there is no possible way to give all those kids the necessary attention…they are saving a life, but I always think, at what expense? Just because you save a child from poverty and place them in wealth, does not always make it right…they need a connection to their parents and if they add 10 kids, you know they cannot possibly carry on full-time duties with their social schedules…they kids will be pushed off on nannies…I know I’m probably offending a lot of Brangelina lovers, but it’s my opinion and they are not perfect…I love them, but hey, give Sholih and Zee some time before adding on a new kid to the brood…

    The Cover Pitts

    Us Weekly and People have both put the Family on the cover, pimping the Pitts who are always good to sell at newsstands… and why not? Look at them!

    Nothing new in terms of content: it’s a boy, around 4 years old, they began the procedure months ago, could be a while yet before they bring him home – all things you already know. What’s new from my sources is that the couple is already prepared and bracing for backlash from critics over suspicion into the adoption process which is why they supposedly have given the green light to Vietnamese officials to reveal as much information as possible without compromising crucial information to encourage transparency and avoid another “Malawi”. Scrutiny into this aspect of the situation is not a concern.

    However, what does irritate them are the questions about the timeline and why the adoption so soon after the Chosen One’s arrival. Rumour has it Brad sees this not as a challenge about their parenting but a challenge about race. I’m told he was on the phone some time late last week and he mentioned something to the effect of (my source paraphrased) – “we got pregnant with Shiloh less than a year after bringing Z home and I don’t recall anyone saying that was too short. So is it because it’s too short or is it because Shiloh is biological?”

    Also – Maddox is rumoured to have traveled with Angelina last week with a quick stop in Vietnam. Have received multiple reports of sightings on a Cathay Pacific flight, Angie and Madd were in Business Class, very low key, Maddox was sleepy but apparently still full of personality and hugged his mom a lot, they were on their way to Hong Kong presumably connecting to LA back to NOLA.

    Will keep you posted.

  • please

    I hope you don’t mind my writing three times, please everyone who has a soul, do not let HW entertainment and tabloid sensationalism blind your eyes to the serious issues around the world that are being raised. Tabloids use Angelina to make money by selling lies, open your eyes and ears to the issues, stop paying attention to irrevelant tabloid gossips, although I do support People mag. for trying to find out the facts before printing. Please help raise awareness for the women issues around the world like Angelina does. Many thanks to the fans who research and contribute to these efforts.

    She said that about Madona adopting from a place that does not allow adoption and she is break their rules by trying to adopt as a single parent since its not allowed to let two people living together to adopt there.

  • 20/20

    People’s cover and US Weekly’s cover say it all:

    Brad loves Shiloh

    Angie Loves Zee (& Mad & Viet Boy and every other godforsaken urchin that will come along)

  • bdj

    Thanks Just Jared. Congrats to BP and AJ. I wish them all the best. It is good to see a superstar couple such as BP and AJ give their time, money and name to worthwhile causes. It also good to see them open their hearts and home(s) to needy children as well as have their own. Best wishes to BAMZS+1.

  • http://www.justjared.com I do care because Jen do like children

    Jennifer chose her life no one make that choice for her, if she wanted Brad, she had to make comprise.
    In relationships you don’t suppose to see yourself only, you have to see your husband or partner too. Jennifer is so selfish she refused to have a baby with Brad. Don’t blame Brad or Angie for that. It’s time to move on, let Jolie- Pitt family live their life.

  • http://aol roses

    I don’t want to sound bitter a do like what she is doing to help the world but she can adopt anywhere she wants that wouldn’t be breaking any rules.

    How will they communicate with a four year old Vietnamese boy? He probably won’t speak English at first.

    Oh Zahara, Turn that frown upside down. [lmao] Crack a smile for once kiddo.

    Once she understands the quality of life she’s living. she’ll never stop smiling.

    don’t worry, he’s still young and he will be able to pick up english pretty quickly. oh! just as long as the family speaks ‘english’ to him daily!:)

  • Anon

    Thanks Rachel, I fully concur with your view. So much for these idolising stalkers. There are so many other people, famous and non-famous that adopt and are good parents. But do they get the JoliePitt treatment? No. When Angie was with Billy Bob she didn’t get such accolades, despite adopting Maddox then. Probably because Billy is fugly. This is what it boils down to, they’re getting the extra attention because of their looks not deeds. STOP IDOLISING AND GET A LIFE Y’ALL.

    Peace.

    Anon, the problem is that the MEDIA only pays attention to Brad and Angie? The MEDIA should pay attention to other celebrities as well, but the MEDIA doesn’t and only choose to pick on the Brangelina and they know that it sells whenever talking about the Brangelina!!!!!! Get through your thick SKULL Anon and Rachel!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you don’t mind, please go to the previous Brad Pitt thread. We discussed that “breaking the rules” at length. There are very intelligent posts on that thread, and they are a real pleasure to read.

  • Mediterranean

    Zahara does not smile because she does not want to have wrinkles on her face. You, as a woman, have to pay attention on this kind of thing even at 2 of age.

    Of course, my answer sounds so ridiculous as much as the question of why she doesn’t smile at all.

    wow, I think I love you. LOL
    I cant grasp this crap im reading.. why are they idolizing them to the point of getting LIVID when someone posts other views.
    i guarantee you if any of these freaks approached BRANGELINA with this STALKER LIKE attitude, they would be hit with a restraining order..
    give it up people.

  • K

    I admire them alot for their courage and love towards their causes, i am not up to criticising them , i am an african and i have been staying in Europe for about three years now and i can say this with all authority, the upbringing here is totally and i mean totally different FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD, i know it is all about making the world a round place and all and everyone learning to love onE another , it ain’t going to happen never , cultures, traditions will always be different and with four kids i pray to God they know what lies ahead , because it will be tough many times and easy for just a little time, i wish them the best but something tells me they are ready for the journey but are not really sure how it is going to lead.

    My mother was raise with eight brothers in a house with both parents who worked and turned out quite well. I know of a guy who is the youngest of 22 children and all of the kids turned out to be productive members of society.

    JP’s have the resources available to them that these most families do not have and from what it seems, both parents (and their families) are very involved in their children’s daily life and one of them is at home while the other works. I don’t see the problem.

  • African Girl

    I tell ya…It’s like with every new thread, comes memory loss. I can’t believe some are still going on about breaking the law or AJ carrying Zee and BP carrying Shiloh (at different times) is an indication of who loves which child they love.

  • Dancer

    Roses–she is not breaking the rules. A local radio station (Chicago) this morning was discussing this. Vietnamese law/rules says (I’m paraphrasing)–couples and single men and women can adopt over the age of 25. Cohabitating cannot adopt together, but one or the other can. She is going through an American agency so all of the U.S. rules will be followed as well as the Vietnamese rules. When the child gets here, Brad can adopt it if he chooses (which of course he will). She did not talk against Madonna adopting–she said she personally would not adopt from a country where there were no legal adoption rules. Vietnam has regulations and rules and she is following them.

  • JoliePitt

    i think that ANON and RACHEL are jealous that Brad and Angie are not adopting them! That is why they are talking sh***t and not knowing their sh***t……..

  • Anon

    Hiya Rachel, Seems like we are on the same page and everyone else on this blog is in lala land. A breath of fresh air indeed… But this is exactly what happens if your life has no focus and is quite bland, you tend to focus on hype and the trivialities of so-called celebrities…

    =====================================================
    ITA … my parents raised seven of us and they had problems because of financial reasons … but all of us became productive members of society anyway. With Brad and Angelina finances are not a problem, and they have said that one will be at work while the other one works, and they have already demonstrated this. So I really don’t see the problem. Besides, as Lainey’s article has mentioned (whether correct or not) I guess it’s because of the race and adoption issue. Heidi Klum is not being chastised for having three kids in three years (no one has brought up the too close together issue) and neither was Britney (and I guess it’s because their children were biological).

    Something about adopting children of another race with golden boy Brad Pitt seems to touch something so deep in people that Angelina Jolie has been pilloried and condemned beyond reason.

  • from Lainey

    “We got pregnant with Shiloh less than a year after bringing Z home, and I don’t recall anyone saying that was too short. So is it because it’s too short, or is it because Shiloh is biological?”
