Reports are saying that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have a adopted a baby boy from Cambodia. The actress first met the boy’s family in Siem Reap while she was directing First They Killed My Father. Living in the slums of Cambodia, Jolie was shocked to see the family’s living conditions. She promised to sponsor the family and take their young son to live with them.
Sources are saying she didn’t exactly run it past her husband Pitt before committing to the decision. Those around her are saying the whole thing was conducted with great secrecy.
“This was all staged like some secret military operation,” a source close to the couple has said.“Angie didn’t want Brad to get wind of what she was doing because she knew he’d throw a fit! Angie has pledged to pay more than $1 million to help support the family and to adopt baby Allouy.”
The rest of the Pitt children are said to have formed close friendships with the rest of the siblings in the family and have even spent their money buying them things. Shiloh and Zahara have bought the kids clothes, new bikes and have even taken them on trips to a video arcade.
One of the kids, Leida Shoun, 16, said: “We only had one bicycle for the entire family and it was old. So for us this is an amazing gift. Shiloh and Zahara and their family are very good, very nice people! We have known them for a while. They sponsor us. I play with Shiloh or Zahara. They meet us in Siem Reap town. They take us to the arcade in the Angkor Centre. I like it when we play ball.”
Jolie adopted her first child Maddox, 14, from Cambodia in 2002, the adopted Zahara and Pax.
She also has Shiloh Nouvel, Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline with Brad Pitt.
