Angelina Jolie is hoping to adopt a young Vietnamese boy, an adoption
official has confirmed.
Vu Duc Long, director of the south east Asian
nation's Ministry of Justice's International Adoption Department, announced on
Friday that the actress had filed papers through a US adoption agency to take
custody of a child.
On Saturday, he released further information, confirming the child is a male
and is younger than her current adopted
son Maddox and older than her adopted daughter Zahara Marley and
biological daughter Shiloh Nouvel.
Long said, "She has made an application to adopt a boy aged between three and
four years old and her paperwork will be processed according to the regulations
like everyone else.
"Normally it takes about four months to process an adoption request but if
she has found the child, it could take much less."
Jolie, her partner Brad Pitt and their family visited Vietnam in November in
between filming of A Mighty Heart in Pakistan.
Jolie adopted Cambodian-born Maddox in 2002 and Ethiopian-born Zahara in
2005. She gave birth to Pitt's child Shiloh in Namibia last May.
