Pax Thien Jolie's Passport Photo

Pax Thien Jolie's Passport Photo

This is the passport photo of Angelina Jolie‘s newly adopted 3-year-old son Pax Thien Jolie (born Truong Quang Sang) that was attached to the passport application filed at the immigration office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on Friday. The very first photos of Pax were posted here.

Angelina and Pax (along with Maddox, Zahara, and Shiloh) will fly home to Los Angeles after Pax‘s passport and visa have been finalized.

Lao Dong (Labor) newspaper reports that when Angelina and Pax first met, she quickly embraced him and told him in Vietnamese “Khong sao dau, khong sao dau” (No problem, no problem) and immediately started playing with him.

Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reports that Pax can count from 1 to 10 in English and his favorite foods include fried noodles and yogurt.

The adoption agency that Angelina used issued the following response to clear up rumors regarding Pax‘s adoption.

“In applying to adopt 3-yr-old Pax Thien, Ms. Jolie followed the same course as all prospective adoptive parents who apply to our Vietnam program. Throughout her adoption process, which began in the summer of 2006, she has received no preferential treatment from the Vietnamese government or Adoptions From The Heart, and contrary to earlier reports, her application was not fast tracked.

Despite rumors that she chose her child, Ms. Jolie received a referral, just like any other parent adopting from Vietnam. In late 2006, she was referred a child who had been legally determined to be available for adoption and who fit within the parameters for which she had been approved to adopt. She accepted the first and only referral given to her.

In addition, we can confirm the statement given by Nguyen Van Trung, Director of Tam Binh Orphanage, that Ms. Jolie has neither made, nor promised to make, any financial contributions to his orphanage. Adoptions From The Heart celebrates the miracle of adoption with the Jolie-Pitt family, as we do with all of our clients, and wish them much joy.”

Heidi Gonzalez, Vietnam Adoption Coordinator for Adoptions From The Heart

    Good Morning, BAMZSPsers!!!

    Thanks for the new thread, Jared … but my head’s already spinning … three threads in one day for me to catch up on. I wish life wouldn’t get in the way of blogging at JustJared, ha ha ha!

    He looks so cute, does Pax. He is one lucky child, to become the fourth child of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Brad is really on his way to getting his dominant soccer team. Congratulations to the Jolie-Pitts!

  • Me Again!

    Can’t wait for them to come back home…to New Orleans!!!

  • Rose

    I am very happy for this couple and children, may a wealth of happiness shine upon them.

  • Original Curious

    I’m so happy for them and little Pax. Poor llittle fella is probably overwhelmed at the moment. Are we sure the girls are there too? I can’t imagine Brad at home without any of his kids….must be killing him.

  • tazgalSingapore


    I Hope he settles down quickly and get lots of love and happiness from this lovely family. Dont you guys notice that he looks like his big brother Maddox? The cute button? N his full lips? Doesnt that remind u of Angie herself?

  • bdj

    Thanks for the update Just Jared. This article clears up a lot of rumors out there regarding the adoption. Your site is the best. Keep up the good work. Best wishes to BP and AJ on their new son to the family. I wish AJ, Maddox and Pax a safe and a happy homecomming. I am sure that they will have a welcoming, tearful and happy reunion with BP, Zahara, Shiloh and extended family and friends. Best wishes to the entire family.

  • zen

    Thanks JJ………..
    Welcome Pax!

  • Besane

    So, where are they coming home to, did they move out of New Orleans? Have a safe trip, and you boys take care of your mommy!

    Its’ so refreshing reading about a child being given a loving home compared to celebrities out shopping,flaunting their snatch or picking their nose…its flatulence compared to someone to who has a conscience and a heart. Pax is beautiful as are all the children of the world. The mix of Vietnamese and Cambodian is wonderful it is heartwarming. My fantasy would be for her to adopt from Iraq that really would be a smack in the face…especially to the neo-nazi like policies of the current government. They and their followers must really hate this couple intensely. Perhaps all the nasties that appear on various blogsites could be referred to as NNs?

  • Fleasha

    Angelina should adopt me. I’d make a great 21-year-old daughter :p

  • anustin

    good morning j,and everyone on board!

  • Sheri

    Thank you sooo much Jared!! He is such a little cutie! I pray they get home safe and sound! The paps need to get a clue! He’s a 3yr old child for Gods sake, stop it!

  • Mediterranean

    I hope that we shall be seeing the happiness in his eyes soon.

    As Original Curious mentioned, Brad must be going crazy without his woman and his kids around him. I know the look in my husband’s eyes when my daughter and I go somewhere without him at least for a week. He always has tears in his eyes while welcoming us back.

    The Jolie-Pitts’ reunion will be great with a new addition.

    It sure does. I don’t know why people still don’t understand that concept. Than Goodness, AJ and BP don’t waste their time on trivialities. As BP once said “They know their Truth”

    I wish Pax Thien and his new family all the happiness in the world.

    Thank You Jared for all the updates.

  • So lovely…

    Oh yes, a child from Iraq or Afghanistan would really be a lethal strike against the neo-conservatists in USA. It could be so lovely. I wish that this beautiful family will face many good times.

  • hunnybunny

    The “miracle of adoption” is right and it is to be celebrated. JJ, I really appreciate knowing that there is a new cause for Joy in the land of JP. He is adorable.

    This summer is going to be so much fun for all the kids. Shiloh walking or starting to, Zahara talking, Pax learning English (I think he and Zee are going to be close — hope she doesn’t bogart the snacks!) and Maddox leading the reindeer games. What a great feeling B&A must have of joy and anticipation. The senior Pitts will be in heaven, I’m sure.

    I have a few friends with four kids, closely spaced in age. I couldn’t do it myself, but they seem to love it and they can afford it, so more power to them — and that goes for the Jolie Pitts too. Enjoy.

    Angelina Jolie Voted Yummiest MILF
    By Staff\
    Mar 16, 2007
    Angelina Jolie has been voted Hollywood’s ‘yummiest mummy’. The actress topped a poll of over 3,000 film fans, conducted by movie website, to the sexy accolade.
    Angelina – who has four children, Maddox, five, Zahara, two, 10-month-old Shiloh and newly adopted Vietnamese boy Pax Thien – beat a host of other stunning Hollywood mothers to the title with around a quarter of the total vote.
    Kate Winslet came second with 18 per cent of the votes, while Reese Witherspoon – who has two children, daughter Ava and son Deacon – and Cate Blanchett came third and fourth respectively

    What a sweety your hubby…

    Can you imagine how Mad is taking a role of big brother, teaching him English, preparing Pax for the BIG trip? I am sure this will be Pax’s first flight on an airplane! I first thought it might get a little complicated to have two boys of similar age (sibling rivary, you know) but now I think they made a great decision. After all this will make 3 males 3 females in that house hold, and Mad and Pax will bond. Jolie-Pitt really gives a LOT of consideration when coming to children’s matters, don’t they…

  • drainbreath

    So lovely…
    Yes, I forgot to add Afghanistan another sham ‘war’…I totally agree a child from Afghanistan would be part of the fantasy as would one from the Chagos Islands against the NNs.

    In applying to adopt 3-yr-old Pax Thien, Ms. Jolie followed the same course as all prospective adoptive parents who apply to our Vietnam program. Throughout her adoption process, which began in the summer of 2006, she has received no preferential treatment from the Vietnamese government or Adoptions From The Heart, and contrary to earlier reports, her application was not fast tracked.

    She accepted the first and only referral given to her.

    I just think the above should be repeated for those who have a problem comprehending after one read. Some People think the adoption process started when the media broke it…It’s such a silly thought process, it renders me speechless. It also goes to show that all those who claim to have inside knowledge about the JPs…DON’T KNOW JACK.

  • tia

    I’m happy for them but wow 4 kids in 5 years !

    It really was a good idea bringing Maddox along. Smart thinking on their part. What better way to ease Pax into the family than bringing his big brother. Can you just see Maddox, waving the Paparazzis off and saying “Ahh, crazy people. Pay them no attention”

    I hate to demean this thread by mentioning her name here but I hope this clears up any lingering questions Ms. Tatiana Beams International Adoption Extraordinaire, has about this adoption. It would be nice if she wrote an article correcting her mistake…but then again, that will mean it truly was a mistake.

    Oh well, as long as the JPs are happ…the likes of her can go somewhere I won’t mention.

  • drainbreath

    For those that think that the JP’s received preferential treatment I think it’s called ‘the propaganda machine’. Only the stupified would believe it. It’s sad and a shame that you can’t legislate against stupidity.

  • Mr. and Mrs. Smith

    Thanks Jared. African Girl, ITA. I’m also thankful about yesterday and the news/entertainment shows that reported mostly positive on this news. I’m glad that there are people in the media that are beginning to see the real Angie and defend her on television. It’s also good to know that some people (eg Scarborough, Ted C.) can put aside their biases and see the truth.

  • Isabelle II

    I’m so happy for them, Brad must be go crazy waiting for them to get home! My head is spinning with all this wonderful news and so many threads, this one is still short so I might have a chance to catch up.

  • xenia

    I noticed that Angelina is at ease in learning new languages. Good for her. There are people that can convey easily in any tongues. It only means one thing…Angelina is very tolerant person & accepting of people of different backgrounds.


    I so glad! Love them. Hopefully a safe return for the group. You never know maybe Brad will be on his way this weekend & all will come back together.

  • Missouri Fan

    Happy Friday to all the Jolie-Pitt’s fans all over the world!!

    I bet Brad will have a huge banner @ home

    ** WELCOME HOME SON!!! **

    Pax is blessed to be one of the Jolie-Pitt’s children.
    Wishing all the best for Brad, Angie and all their children…
    May God’s love be with them always and forever.

    to Besane,

    At home, they got their first soccer teams for a practice. “Boys” and “Girls”, Shiloh will be goalkeeper for the girls!

    Most probably, next adoption will be an African girl. Then, dad Brad might start praying to have a bio son to keep his team equal with mom’s team.

    Maddox must be very happy to have a brother now. There is another target for Shiloh for a cookie; maybe Zahara might eat her cookie in peace now.

    It’s a full house; sounds great to me!

  • JoliePitt

    Morning Bamzsp fans. Wow, I haven’t been on JJ. Look how many threads JJ is giving us. Thanks JJ.

    Wow! Pax looks like Maddox! Maddox is going to be such a wonderful brother. Yep, they are close to having their own dominant soccer team. They can probably kick Beckham’s butt now!:) hahaha

  • Mediterranean

    Just imagine,

    After 15 years all the children of the Jolie-Pitts would start speaking English, their own mother tongue and probably French.

    When they talk, argue, discuss something with each other, you hear English and French. When they say bad words to each other, they will use the mother tongue, not to let other understand what they just say.

    God help Angie and Brad, their home will be colourful, loud and surely fun.

  • JoliePitt

    btw, has anyone on JJ seen pix of JJ or Audrey? JJ and Audrey, can we see who you guys are?:)

  • Missouri Fan

    Pax is a lucky kid..He is blessed to be with the Jolie-Pitt’s for the rest of his life.

    The Us Weekly Drug Issue

    Man of the People– Last year, this half of a famous couple could be regularly seen driving around local public housing projects attempting to score crack. How did anyone know it was him? Only a megastar could afford his expensive set of wheels.

    Late Riser– When this reformed bad girl used to stay for long periods at one historic Beverly Hills hotel, she required a special wake-up call each morning: a designated staffer had to pull the actress out of bed and stick her in a cold shower in order to sober her up from the night before. Then she would head off to her movie set.

    Happy Belated Birthday CLINIQUA. I hope you had some fun times celebrating!

  • sara

    I’m just curious. Why did they say that Brad couldn’t make it because he was under contract to work when there was no Benjamin Button shoot on Wednesday and yesterday(and as far as I know, there’s no shoot today)? He was photographed coming out of Scott brothers’ office where he spent an hour or two yesterday. That could be considered as work but certainly something he could get out of.
