The couple already parents to six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, Shiloh, eight and adopted children Maddox, 13, Zahara, 10 and Pax, 11 – are planning on adding to their brood once again ”before the end of summer”. Angelina, 39 – who recently underwent a double mastectomy – and Brad, 51, are reportedly ready to adopt a young Syrian girl after the actress was ”moved to tears” when learning of the difficulties facing youngsters in the war torn country. According to a close business associate of the couple, who spoke with the UK’s; “She has been moved to tears on several occasions over the plight of youngsters orphaned in the Syrian conflict,” ”Now she has sorted out her health issues, she and Brad believe the time is right to adopt another orphan from there, most likely a daughter.” As special envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina has made more than six visits to Syrian refugee camps and has been an eyewitness to the atrocities happening in that sphere of the world. The source added: ”They would like to accomplish it, if possible, before the end of summer because, even though they are both busy, their diaries are relatively light for most of 2015. ”Angelina’s feeling good about turning 40 in June with a clean bill of health but what will make her happiness complete is seeing a new little face at the dinner table.”
