Angelina Grabs Her Latest Child From Vietnamese Drive-Thru Window


Angelina Jolie and Maddox arrived in Vietnam last week to finalize the adoption of the three-year-old boy she is adopting from the country. The formalities should be completed by this weekend, when Jolie will be able to take the little boy back to New Orleans to meet his daddy and two sisters. The boy, whose name has not been released, was brought to an orphanage as a baby after he was found abandoned at a Ho Chi Minh City hospital, and city officials were not able to locate his parents to have them sign off on the adoption.

The young boy reportedly enjoys soccer and gets along well with the other kids at the center. Angelina’s adopting the kid as a single parent, because Vietnamese law doesn’t allow unmarried couples to adopt children (but single parents? That’s a-okay! I figure this has something to do with human-trafficking prevention, but I don’t see how … anyone know?).

You know, I like to say mean things about Angelina because she totally stole Jennifer Aniston’s husband, but I have to admit that she’s probably a really good person. This is not to say that this country — and this world — is not already full of big-hearted people who adopt orphans from third-world countries to offer them a better life, but it’s cool that Angelina is setting such a high-profile example.
