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.

Angelina Jolie may have barely escaped a supposed third-world plot to kidnap her and extort a ransom while working as a UN Goodwill Ambassador, but she’ll never escape the consequent positive publicity. Poor dear. [The Blemish]

Sweet Jesus, Suri Cruise only has four fingers. Like, seriously, the kid is missing an entire finger. This is what happens, people, when you create a baby from the 20-year-old frozen sperm of L. Ron Hubbard. Four fingers. [POTP]
Antonella Barba’s not planning to return to school right away, in order to “strike while the iron’s hot,” which means I can no longer effectively argue that everything Antonella Barba has ever decided to do is stupid. [Ninja Dude]

Oops … they did it again!
Sorry, sorry. With Britney now sequestered in a single rehab for over twenty-four hours, I don’t know what to do with all those jokes. And it just doesn’t seem right that it’s nearly noon and I haven’t made one yet. So I’m turning them on Brad and Angie, because Hollywood’s better-dressed version of the United Nations is expanding once more.
Sources tell US Weekly that the gorgeous couple has filed papers with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration services to adopt a boy from the Tam Binh orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City. They visited the orphanage in late November.
The move will bring gender equality to the family, which currently consists of one boy (Maddox, five, from Cambodia), and two girls (Zahara, two, from Ethiopia, and Shiloh Our Lord and Savior, 10 months, from the far-off, magical land of Angelina Jolie’s Vagina).
For those of you keeping score at home, this brings the tally to Brad Pitt: 4 kids, Jennifer Aniston: 0 kids. It’s looking to be a shut-out. Ouch.
