Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie are adopting a Vietnamese boy for son Maddox

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are adopting a Vietnamese boy for son Maddox.
The 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' stars - parents to five-year-old Cambodian son
Maddox, two-year-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara and ten-month-old biological
daughter Shiloh - believe an Asian boy would be the best addition to the
family for Maddox reports Female First UK.

A source is quoted by People magazine as saying: "The process that began
shortly after Shiloh was born last May.

Brad and Angelina made a surprise visit to the Tam Binh orphanage at
Thanksgiving to give presents to the children.

Angelina said: "It would be good to balance the races so there's another
African person in the house for Z and another Asian person in the house for
