Angelina Jolie is considering adopting another child. The 'Wanted' actress - who gave birth to twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline last month - was so affected by footage of the recent earthquake in China she is contemplating giving a home to a child orphaned in the natural disaster.
A source told Britain's Star magazine: "Angelina is devastated over the earthquake that occurred in China in May. She has been in constant touch with relief workers as part of her UN involvement, and even got her hands on photos of a few orphaned kids. "She's made overtures offering a home to one earthquake orphan, or even two if they are siblings."
As well as the twins, Angelina and her partner Brad Pitt also have three adopted children Zahara, three, seven-year-old Maddox and Pax, four, as well as naturally conceived Shiloh, two.
Angelina, 33, recently revealed her newborn babies are keeping her busy, but she is getting plenty of help from the rest of her family.
She said: "It is chaos, but we are managing it and having a wonderful time. Shiloh calls the twins her babies. She and Zahara pick out their clothes, help change and hold them. It's sweet - they are like little mommies." [China Daily]

Babies # 7 and 8?
With the debut of the twins just a mere three weeks ago, Angelina's supposedly been looking in China as the location from which to adopt next. Since we've heard that the twins were a surprise, it might be that Angelina was in the process of searching for the next child when she found out she was pregs with Knox and Viv. The recent earthquake has prompted her to look there. She is even willing to take on siblings so that they will not separated. At this rate, Brad and Angelina will be the Duggars of Hollywood.
