Angelina Jolie, a special envoy for the UNHCR, met with Syrian refugees in Lebanon several times in 2014. According to new reports, Jolie and husband Brad Pitt will reportedly be adopting their seventh child, a 2-year-old Syrian refugee.
According to Australian magazine Women’s Day, the celebrity couple is in negotiations to adopt a 2-year-old Syrian boy named Moussa. The toddler currently resides in the Altinozu refugee camp in Turkey.
Jolie reportedly met Moussa during a United Nations visit to the refugee camp where he lives. Moussa will be the couple’s seventh child, and the website suggests he is an orphan currently living in a refuge camp in Turkey but born in Syria.
Currently living in a refuge camp in Turkey, Angelina is said to have first met the child when visiting the camp as part of her work with UNICEF. A charity worker said: “Angelina heard about him from a translator and she was obviously upset, but Moussa was just beaming from ear to ear.
“When he saw she was wiping tears from her eyes he toddled up to her and gave her a hug and it was a very emotional moment and everyone was suddenly laughing and smiling.”
If reports are true, the new baby will join Pitt and Jolie’s three other adopted children Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 9, as well as the couple’s three biological children Shiloh, 8, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 5.
The Hollywood pair have reportedly adopted a two-year-old boy born in Syria, taking their brood of six to a group of seven children.
Woman’s Day, an Australian website, said the A-list couple are set to welcome two-year-old Moussa to their fold any day.
