Expanding Their Family! See Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and More Stars Who’ve Adopted Children!

Family forever! Sandra Bullock and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are just some of the stars who have chosen to adopt kids. For someone like Charlize Theron, adoption was always her “first choice” when it came to expanding her family.

“I was always aware that there are so many children in this world who don’t have families,” the Atomic Blonde actress, who is a proud mom of two to kids Jackson and August, previously said on Today. “Adoption is a very personal thing — I know people whom I love dearly who don’t feel that they could raise another child as their own. I respect that. But for me — and I can’t be the only person out there — I never saw a difference in raising an adopted child versus my own biological child. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on something.”

In fact, Angelina has also spoken out about the joy of adoption. “All adopted children come with a beautiful mystery of a world that is meeting yours,” she previously told Vogue. “When they are from another race and foreign land, that mystery, that gift, is so full. For them, they must never lose touch with where they came from.”

Angelina shares her adopted children, Paz, Zahara and Maddox, with Brad. The couple are also parents to their three biological kids, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox. Like Angelina, Sandra has learned about the beauty of adoption from raising her two kids, Laila and Louis, with boyfriend Bryan Randall.

During a previous interview on Today, the mother of two revealed why being a mom makes her so happy. “I finally realize, ‘Oh this is what I was supposed to do when I grew up,’” she said. “This is my purpose, and I knew it at a very young age … I felt that calling at a very young age, but I had to become the mom that I was supposed to be for the kids that were waiting for me.”
