Baby No. 7 For The Holy Family????

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt want to adopt another baby. They were heartbroken after visiting refugees from Myanmar — formerly known as Burma — during a trip to Thailand.

Now they are planning to adopt a baby boy from the stricken country, bringing their brood to seven.

Angelina and her partner Pitt, 45, missed out on the best actress and best actor awards at last night's Baftas. But a source told us Angelina, 33, has her mind on higher things. She has held meetings with officials in Chang Mai about the logistics involved in adopting a baby.

“The plight of the refugees from Myanmar really affected Angelina,” we were told.

“She can't stand to see the suffering of these people, especially the children. She spent most of last week at a refugee centre, Ban Mai Nai Soi, along the Thai-Myanmar border and met with one woman who has spent more than 20 years in the refugee camp.

“Angelina said she was saddened to learn the woman, who was born in the refugee camp, has never been out of it, and is now raising her own child there.

“She decided then that her next adoption should be from Myanmar. She thinks if she can save even one child it is better than doing nothing.

“She knew she wouldn't be able to take a baby home with her this time, but she was very keen to get the ball rolling.”

Angelina and Pitt have three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, as well as three biological children, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.
