Brad and Angie are parents to six – Maddox, 8, Pax, 5 1/2, Zahara, 4, Shiloh, 3, and twins, Knox and Vivienne, 14-months-old – and according to sources the 46-year-old actor does not want to expand their already big brood. However, Angelina wants to adopt again after her recent trip to Ethiopia.
An insider said, “During Angie’s visit to an orphanage, she fell in love with this one little girl. It was a done deal as soon as she laid eyes on the 3-year-old.
“There were actually three kids there who tugged at Angie’s heartstrings, but she absolutely fell in love with this one child,” added the source.
The couple’s oldest girls, Zahara and Shiloh, were taken with the tot, too, and “hugged the little girl as they were leaving.”
“Angie said it was so sweet, and now she’s determined to make the child part of their family.” But Brad is putting the brakes on more kids. “Brad put his foot down. He told Angie no more adoptions right now, that they already have enough kids to raise. He thinks she isn’t being practical.”
The pal dished, “Angelina flat out told Brad they were adopting again. She didn’t ask — she told him, as if her word is the law!” Yikes, she sounds scary.
“Brad told Angelina she’s like a big kid in a pet store, where one puppy just isn’t enough. When Angie heard that she went balistic. She yelled at Brad for not seeing they would be taking in human beings — not little dogs.”
But Brad doesn’t want to give in. He’s apparently overwhelmed with the kids they have now and his work schedule.
“Brad’s really under the gun. He gets worn out promoting his work, comes home and is given a list of parenting chores to do,” claims the source.
“It’s not that he doesn’t want to be there for every kid and for Angie. He simply can’t because he’s too exhausted.”
Can these two come to an agreement? “She’s told him it’s happening just as fast as she can make it happen when he likes it or not. They’d better sit down and work this out — fast! If they can’t see eye to eye on this, a lot of little lives are affected.”
Really? You can just go adopt without your partner’s input? Can’t see that happening. Then again, Angie probably wears the pants in the family!
