It seems the Jolie-Pitt family may be getting a little bigger!
According to a new report, Brad Pitt, 51, and Angelina Jolie, 39, are hoping to adopt a daughter from Syria this summer.

“[Angelina] has been moved to tears on several occasions over the plight of youngsters orphaned in the Syrian conflict. Now she has sorted out her health issues, she and Brad believe the time is right to adopt another orphan from [Syria], most likely a daughter,” a longtime business associate of the couple revealed in a new interview.
“This is something that has become very close to their hearts. They would like to accomplish it, if possible, before the end of summer because, even though they are both busy, their diaries are relatively light for most of 2015,” the insider added.

The Oscar-winning actress — who recently underwent surgery to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes after doctors told her was at risk of developing ovarian cancer — and the ‘Fury’ star are already parents to three biological children and three adopted children.
The couple’s sons, Maddox, 13, and Pax, 11, were adopted from Cambodia and Vietnam, respectively, and their daughter, Zahara, 9, was adopted from Ethiopia. Angelina gave birth to daughter Shiloh, 8, in 2006, and to twins Knox and Vivienne, 6, in 2008.
