Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly considering adopting a child from Syria. The couple, who are already parents to six children, are apparently looking to adopt a child from the war torn country before the end of the summer.

A source who describes themselves as “business associate” of the couple told the Express that Jolie has “has been moved to tears on several occasions over the plight of youngsters orphaned in the Syrian conflict”.

Angelina’s feeling good about turning 40 in June with a clean bill of health but what will make her happiness complete is seeing a new little face at the dinner table.

Intriguing, but we suggest taking this with a grain of salt. (Express)
