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

    HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam (AP) — Superstar mom Angelina Jolie is happy to have a chance to focus on her growing family and its newest member, Pax Thien Jolie, according to an interview published in a Vietnamese newspaper Friday.

    “I will stay at home to help Pax adjust to his new life,” Jolie told the Ho Chi Minh City Law newspaper. “I have four children and caring for them is the most important thing for me at the moment. I’m very proud and happy to be their mother.”

    Jolie adopted the 3-year-old Vietnamese boy on Thursday, during a ceremony at the Ho Chi Minh City Justice Department, which publishes the newspaper.

    Since she arrived in Vietnam on Wednesday night, Jolie has been hounded by a jostling horde of photographers and reporters, who followed her from the orphanage to the Ministry of Justice for Thursday’s ceremony.

    Jolie said she was sorry that her new son had to be exposed to such a media frenzy and expressed concern about how it would affect him.

    “Photographs and press coverage will make him upset,” Jolie said in the interview, which was published in Vietnamese. “I’m very worried about that. I would like to say I’m sorry for bringing this into Pax’s life.”

    Jolie’s oldest son, five-year-old Maddox, came with her to Vietnam, where she is expected to stay until next week. Her other children are 2-year-old Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia, and another sister, Shiloh, born to Jolie and her superstar partner Brad Pitt in May.

    Ever since she was young, Jolie said, she has wanted to adopt children.

    “Everyone would agree that children need to have a family,” the paper quoted her as saying. “I have the ability to help children fulfill that desire. Why should I say no?”

    A nurse at the orphanage where Jolie adopted the boy said staff there didn’t realize she and Pitt were superstars when they first visited last year.

    “They looked very much like ordinary people,” said Bui Thi Bich Tuyen. “We thought that they were just an ordinary couple that wanted to play with the kids and give them presents. They brought lots of toys.”

    Jolie shared crayons and drew pictures with the kids. “We could already see that she had a heart for children,” said Tuyen, the nurse who had been in charge of raising Pax ever since he was brought to the orphanage as an infant.

    Mornin’ BAMPZS fans!

    That kid is going to be so worldly like the rest of the JoliePitt children!

    Wow – three threads, yesterday! I’m glad everything is under one thread again.

    I think it’s great that the family can operate in separate units like this.
    Do you guys remember when Pitt would take Zahara for ice-cream just the two of them, or the Museum in Namibia? Or when Pitt took Mad out in New York for Pizza/Museum/Restaurant, France for CarRacing, India for a Stroll looking at Helicopters?

    This must be a nice holiday for Jolie and her kids. It seems Jolie’s been under ‘house arrest’ where the kids are concerned for awhile with the Papz hounding them. I guess they thought that the Papz wouldn’t hound the family in Vietnam so that Angie can quietly take the kids there for some funtime with Mom.

    Again, there is an assumption that Jolie is now suppose to be the clingy,whiny afraid-of-her-own-shadow housewife because she is now part of a couple.
    That was the previous couple-dom – ouch! Don’t confuse them.
    Gals – we are not dependent, without a backbone, half-a-brain dimwits when we become part of a couple-dom!
    That was the mistake made in the former, now-doomed ex-couple – heard of the term: ball and chain! Yeah, exactly!

    Yes, this adoption is a big deal and Pax is being brought into the fold!
    Welcome to the family, PAX! However, the JoliePitts already had a visit in November and that is the most important – his introduction to the couple.
    Of course, children hardly remember these and can’t put the significance to this. However, the introduction is there and have been made.
    Remember, this family operates to their own beat – what counts is that everyone that counts (and that is the JoliePitt family members) is happy with the decision or ok with the compromises!

  • Original Curious

    Do we actually KNOW that the girls are with Angie? There seems to be a great deal of confusion about that. I’ve read that they are and that they are home with Brad. I think if it were me, I’d leave the girls home. Not only because of the attention they would pull away from Pax (from Angie), but because I think Brad would go nuts if all his kids were away.

    i think it must be about the same 10 obsessed weird no life people writing this thread because anywhere else you go readers just don’t care or they think brad has lost his mind.

    anyone who goes to this extent to get attention and keep a man needs serious help.

    four kids, 5 and under. just what you love life ordered. i think they should pass a law….. the angelina law………. only one kid per year and no two colors in a row

    Why are you pretending not to be a native english speaker?

  • Websurfer

    Yeah, Jolie must be setting up the brood!
    Pitt must be in heaven for having such an independent partner who carries the weight as much as he does!
    He helped her through losing her Mom and must be very happy that she’s bouncing back and not turning her tragedy into a self-pity, helpless, dragging emotional-drain blackhole where the whole family would be distressed by this.

    Instead, she is channeling this into a positive, family-building, loving world for their children that THEY are BOTH expanding consciously.

    Very commendable and brave, Jolie!

    :) not sure if i still like that idea. i am sure she’s going to be one sexy housewife! i think it should be balanced so that way she won’t go crazy like some women would for just being a housewife. i like the idea of her relationship with brad to stay exciting and challenging so they won’t be bored the living thing out of each other for you know never know!:) although, i doubt they will be bored of each other since they always challenge and push each other to be better!:)

    JoliePitt- hi there. Good to see you back here. I woke up at 4:30 and had to run to my computer to see if there was new news. He’s a cutie! Got his mommy’s lips!

  • Mona says

    Ha Ha. this piece should come with the disclaimer, just so that none of you confuse Angelina with Madonna, NO she did not ask for the pick of the Litter, NO, she did not pay for a government official’s schooling, and NO, she did now skirt established Vietnamese adoption laws to obtain a kid.

  • Paula the Crotch

    Meant to say burlygurl needs attention. Whatever. Anyway, JoliePitt: I can’t see her staying home for long.

  • Lurker

    Do you know what I’ve been dreaming about since we’ve been hearing about this adoption? I would love if Brad & Angelina would do an interview to a very selective magazine and mention that they had planned out their life together with children a while back. I think this is what has happened but the haters keep thinking that everything in their lives are on a whim. What we are seeing is a carefully laid out life plan by Brad & Angelina. will my dreams come true?

    To Seatle = something.

    Why don’t you accept some person want a big family.? Brad had always said he want 7 kids while still married to his selfish ex-wife. He was just lucky to have met Angie, who like kids and big family too.

  • me

    burlygirl, if angelina wants attention then she is getting it, so everyone is happy. why do you care? not a fan? then why are you wasting your time here? maybe you are passive agressive and getting your kicks here. oh well whatever floats your boat.

    According to your logic if you have more than 2 brothers or sisters you might want to ask your mum to send one back. Thank you for enlightening everyone to the fact that AJ adopted another child behind BP’s back…oooooh he is in for such a shock and yes you are right he will instantly leave her.

    LOOOOL. i love sarcasms!:)

  • susie

    Paula the crotch- I gotta say, you have an interesting name.

  • vicki

    lurker, i don’t think even that would help b/c brad says almost every time he is interviewed that his family is everything and that they are going to add to their family and then when it comes to fruition, ignorant people act as though it wasn’t a mutual decision and act stunned. some people just live in the past and refuse to accept the happiness of others.

  • please

    Please let’s decide to keep this thread positive, whether Brad is there or not. Yesterday the haters said Angie took a short cut, today we found out she did not. Please srop taking a lead from the hater’s story. It makes the board messy.

  • Dancer

    I believe I read that Brad has an iron-clad contract that says no leaving on vacation or missing shooting etc. So due to the length of time that it would take for him to leave and go pick up Pax, he probably would have broken contract. He is one of the most professional people in lala land and I don’t think he would do that. He has too much respect for his director and the people he works with to break his word unlike the Lohans, Hiltons and Spears of the world.
    Secondly, I don’t think Angie is staying home forever to be an at home mom. I think, based on what she said, she is staying home to help them all adjust. She has several films in the future pipeline. But then, Brad and Angie do bring the kids to the set. Either way–stay at home or picking a film once and awhile–she is a great mom. You can tell by the closeness with all of the children in pictures (and yes you haters there are Shiloh pictures out there where she is showing her ‘blob’ lots of loving). She is so protective and loving as is Brad and the children do come first–so I think Pax is one lucky little guy!!!
    Thirdly to the haters–I suppose you think it would have been better to have Pax left in the orphanage for the rest of his life. Older children are not exactly hot commodities in the adoption world. If you are so concerned, why don’t you start the process to adopt from this orphanage. You will see Angie was given NO preferential treatment. She had already completed all of the home studies and preliminaries with Maddox and she did not need to repeat most of those. So what was left was to follow Vietnamese law which states adoptions take from one month to over a year. If she had received preferential treatment she would have gotten a child in less than a month. This took almost 8 months.

    Okay, okay, all this good deed done by angie is for media attention ? but don’t you think its better than parading the new nose, new boob, faking a relation and denied it, leaking nude picture and sued, or the Brit-brit stunt, all night party without undie.

    Quit wishing for something that as of right now….isn’t going to happen. I think everyone involved knows that BP will adopted this child like he has done with Mad and Z. I just wonder what your next ‘sign of trouble for the JP’s’ will be once he does that.
