(celebspin.com) - Angelina Jolie says that she and boyfriend Brad Pitt will likely adopt their next child in an effort to add to their mixed-race family.
The A-list Hollywood couple already have a son and two daughters together: 5-year-old Maddox, whom Jolie adopted from Cambodia and has nicknamed Mad; 23-month-old daughter, Zahara, who was adopted from Ethiopia and goes by Z; and 6-month old daughter, Shiloh, who was born to the couple in May.
I want Mad to know that as our family grew and we all came together, we didn't just start having children, biological children, the 31-year-old star of The Good Shepherd said Thursday on ABC's Good Morning America.
Jolie says that while having another biological child with Pitt is a possibility, it is more likely they would adopt another child first.
I even think that I did make it clear that we, we would think about adopting next, which is important for me in the balance of how in our own family, our kids perceive it, Jolie said.
Yes, we have Shiloh and it's been a wonderful experience, but we want to find another brother or sister in the world for our family.
She added that she's currently taking birth control. I'm on the pill, she said.
You know, now the questions are more when you have a mixed-race family, do you balance the races so there's another African person in the house for Z? So there's another Asian person in the house for Mad? Shiloh has Brad and I she can look at, the actress said.
What's best for the children as they grow? Jolie mused. We don't just want to have different children from different countries. That's not the point.
The actress said that she and Pitt make special time for each child, and that they enjoy the normal aspects of parenting.
Really, the big special times are just like this morning, just very, just a lot of nothing together. Just sitting around coloring. We broke the coffee machine. We tried to fix it, she said. We were playing with the kids, just trying to find somebody's bottle, change somebody's diaper that's, you know, gone leaky and just all that good stuff.
She says that Pitt, who turns 43 on Monday, is a conscientious father and partner.
He really enjoys them, Jolie said. He woke up very, very early this morning and let me sleep in because I had this interview. вЂ¦ Dealing with the two girls and bottles and food, which is not easy to do, on his own, for quite a few hours this morning so I could rest. вЂ¦ He's just a really great partner, a great, great man.
