Angelina Jolie has adopted another child, and this time he is from Cambodia. The seventh child to be adopted by the star was picked up from a Cambodian slum, and reports suggest that Jolie did not inform Brad Pitt about it.
“This was all staged like some secret military operation,” a source close to the couple told Radar Online.
Angelina picked up baby boy Allouy Shoun after being shocked by his living conditions. Her daughters Shiloh, nine, and Zahara, ten, also bonded with kids from Allouy’s family, which led to further support and love from Angelina.
The “Maleficent” actress said she would fund and support their entire family in Cambodia, but she didn’t tell Brad about it because she knew he would “throw a fit”. The same source was quoted in The Sun as saying:
“Angie didn’t want Brad to get wind of what she was doing because she knew he’d throw a fit! Angie has pledged to pay more than $1 million to help support the family and to adopt baby Allouy.”
Shiloh and Zahara have been constantly playing with these kids and even spent £130 on clothes for them, taking them to arcade rides and even buying these kids two brand new bikes.
One of the kids, Leida Shoun, 16, explained: “We only had one bicycle for the entire family and it was old. So for us this is an amazing gift.”
Speaking about the Jolie-Pitt family, she continued: “We have known them for a while. They sponsor us. I play with Shiloh or Zahara. They meet us in Siem Reap town. They take us to the arcade in the Angkor Centre. I like it when we play ball.”
Angelina Jolie was in Cambodia because of her directorial venture “First They Killed My Father” which is being shot in Siem Reap. During the film’s shoot, the actress’ kids bonded with Allouy Shoun’s family which consists of 13 brothers and sisters.
The Jolie-Pitt family adopted their first child Maddox, 14, from Cambodia in 2002, and subsequently adopted Zahara and Pax. They also have kids Shiloh Nouvel, Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline together.
