|Could there be more? Brad Pitt and adopted children Zahara and Maddox
She already has four children from three different continents, with the map co-ordinates of each of their birthplaces displayed proudly on her arm.
Now, it seems, Angelina Jolie will soon be giving her tattooist another call.
Amid ongoing rumours of an irreparable rift with her partner Brad Pitt, the 32-year-old Oscar-winning star is preparing to travel with him to Ethiopia in three months to adopt another baby - their fourth non-biological child.
Could there be more? Brad Pitt and adopted children Zahara and Maddox
According to sources close to the pair, they hope that another adoption will shore up their relationship as well as helping Zahara, the Ethiopian girl they adopted two years ago, feel more connected to the rest of the family.
Miss Jolie adopted her eldest son Maddox, from Cambodia, five years ago prior to the start of her relationship with Pitt.
Earlier this year the couple adopted Pax Thien, three, from Vietnam.
Shiloh - their only biological child - was born last year and is said to take after both Pitt, 43, and Miss Jolie in looks.
"Brad and Angie have made no secret of the fact that they are keen to extend their rainbow family," said a source close to the couple.
"But they've always been very careful to ensure that they leave enough time between kids so that that each child fully integrates into the family and feels truly settled.
"Angie in particular feels very strongly that while Shiloh will grow up seeing the family resemblance between herself and her natural parents, and Maddox and Pax will feel a connection through their birthplaces, Zahara has no such close-knit bond.
"They hope that by finding an Ethiopian brother or sister - preferably sister - for her, it will help Zahara feel more comfortable and happy in her own skin.
