Introducing...  Sang Jolie-Pitt

According to one Vietnam newspaper, Angelina Jolie‘s new adopted child is named Pham Quang Sang. After adoption papers have been finalized, it seems that Sang Pax will be welcomed into the Jolie-Pitt family with open arms.

Nguyen Van Trung, the director of Tam Binh Orphanage, revealed that Angelina and Maddox made an emotional 30-minute visit to pick up Sang Pax.

Angelina and Maddox were welcomed by the orphanage by about 20 flower-bearing children dressed in traditional Vietnamese tunics.

“They tried to make friends with the Vietnamese boy, who cried when he saw them because for him, they are strangers,” Trung said. “Jolie was very moved. Both of them tried to comfort the little boy.”

The orphanage staff has tried, without success, to locate Sang’s Pax‘s parents.

Sources also reveal that Maddox, Zahara, and Shiloh are all in Vietnam. There have been no sightings of Brad Pitt because “Brad very much wanted to be there but is under contract working on a film in Los Angeles and as a result couldn’t go,” says Trevor Neilson, Angelina‘s adviser on international affairs.

Angelina and her kids are currently staying at Park Hyatt Hotel, where she and Brad Pitt stayed during their first trip to Ho Chi Minh City during Thanksgiving.

UPDATE :: Angelina has renamed her son to Pax Thien Jolie.

    HO CHI MINH CITY (Reuters) – Actress Angelina Jolie completed procedures with Vietnamese authorities on Thursday to adopt a boy from a Ho Chi Minh City orphanage.

    Officials said the boy had been renamed Pax Thien Jolie and the adoption would be final once U.S. consular and embassy officials give approval.

    The boy had been registered as Pham Quang Sang at the Tam Binh orphanage in the city, Vietnam’s largest urban area with 8 million people.

    Jolie and the child were driven by car from the orphanage to the nine-storey Justice Department building in the city center to sign adoption documents. Jolie’s car was seen leaving the underground parking area 30 minutes later.

    “It is lucky for him. It’s wonderful to be adopted by someone really famous. You can have a good life,” said Nguyen Thi Thuong, 39, who was at the office with her British husband to register their child’s birth certificate.

    The boy adopted by Jolie is aged between 3 and 4. She has three other children — an adoptive son and daughter and a biological daughter with actor and partner Brad Pitt.

    Jolie flew into Ho Chi Minh City late on Wednesday from Japan on a chartered plane, accompanied by her son and daughters.

    The boy, described by adoption authorities as healthy, had been abandoned at a local hospital in 2003 and cared for since at the orphanage.

    Senior officials said Jolie’s adoption had been speeded up, partly due to her celebrity status.

    The actress, 31, filed adoption papers in early March through an unidentified American agency without Pitt. Under Vietnamese law, a single person may adopt a child but an unmarried couple may not.

    In Vietnam, adoptions can take as little as one month if background checks are quickly completed along with confirmation the adopting family can support a child. The process can drag on for six months or more.

    Jolie and Pitt visited Ho Chi Minh City last November and met children at the orphanage.

    The couple say they have no plans to marry but are committed to raising their children together. Their biological daughter, Shiloh Nouvel, was born last year. Jolie adopted Maddox from Cambodia and Zahara from Ethiopia before her relationship with Pitt, who has now become their adoptive father.

    The couple starred in the 2005 movie “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” They are also working together on the film “A Mighty Heart” about the killing of a U.S. journalist by Pakistani militants.

    Jolie won an Oscar in 1999 for best supporting actress in “Girl, Interrupted.” She starred in the 2001 movie “Tomb Raider” which was filmed in Cambodia, neighboring Vietnam.

    Hello to all BAMPZS fans all over the world!!!

    good night!

  • Chinh

    Congratulations to the Jolie-Pitts. I am sure Pax Thien is going to be a very happy boy and a very lucky one.

    Brad is working over time to support the family that is growing because he had to give all his money to X in exchange for his freedom.

    I am glad they did not choose the name ” Chinh ” ( meaning righteous in Vietnamese).

  • Alexanderina

    First…congrats to the family!

    It’s great that this little boy is being adopted by a loving, not to mention rich family & will probably have an amazing life…but why change his name? He is not a baby & at his age he is going to have to make so many adjustments & will be so confused, and now he’s going to be called something different!! Poor kid.

  • jeannified

    This is really wonderful for all of the family members. Littls Pax will adjust in no time, I’m sure! It’s great that they are willing to share so much of themselves with these lucky children!

  • old lady

    It’s great that AJ and BP has so much love to give that they can afford to adopt another child. Thanks JJ for this thread. WOW. I don’t know where to post now that there are three available for me – so I chose the shortest one.
    God bless this family.

  • livvy

    changing his name is selfish at best, and potentially very harmful. names are extremely important, that has been his identity. hasnt she also “erased” tattoos before … i see a theme here of trying to re-write/change things that have already happened. i wish them all the best, but have many reservations about whats best for the kids. also think the “work commitment” from daddy braddy is bogus. thats like not being at yr kids birth, except in this case, they did get to choose when they would do it, plus methinks he has the pull to take time off when he wants to.

  • littleitaly

    she complaint about the paparazzi there. Well honey it’s your own fault. Wasn’t it you who wanted the spot light to follow?
