Angelina Jolie - mom to Maddox, 5, Pax, 3, Zahara, 2, and Shiloh, 10 months visited Chad in late February. During that trip, Angelina Jolie told News of the World that authorities in a foreign country uncovered an elaborate plan to abduct her. "It was in a small village. I won't say where, or with whom, but some gangsters planned to kidnap me and extort a massive ransom, " confesses the Tomb Raider to the British paper. "I was warned at the last minute, and managed to escape, luckily."
Chad's Ministry of Family and Women, which processes adoptions, tells Us Weekly that Jolie has not submitted an application. Still, a gossip close to the couple say they do have big family plans this year. "Brad has told people he and Angelina want to have two more kids in 2007," says a source close to the actor, 43. "Their plans include another biological child."
Adds another, "They want seven or eight children."
Angelina Jolie's brother James Haven , recently told Grazia magazine: "There is no limit to the children she and Brad are adopting. It could be scores. I've never heard an end number in their conversations."
In an interview with the weekly magazine Grazia, Haven, 33, also talked about how Jolie has changed Brad Pitt, why they work, and whether or not his sister really wears the pants in the family.
On the rumors that Angelina is controlling: "I have never seen any sign of tension between them. They make all their decisions together. It's rubbish that she tries to control him. They have a balanced relationship; they each do their stuff. I've never seen moments where one is nagging or controlling the other." On how Brad changed Angelina: "Brad has changed my sister a lot. They have an extraordinary bond, but not on the usual level. Brad is so strong for her; when she feels vulnerable, he has the most incredible strength. She says she couldn't have adopted more children after Maddox without him."
On why they work: "The great thing about Brad and Angelina is that they really get each other's sense of humor, and make each other laugh a lot. They talk about politics a great deal and are very creative together with the projects they are working on. If it keeps going the way it's going, they'll be together for life."
