Update, 4/22: According to Radar, the adoption process has officially begun for the Jolie-Pitt crew. The family is reportedly working to adopt a boy from Syria.

"On one solo trip, Angelina met three Syrian orphan siblings," a reported insider told Radar. "Angelina was heartbroken to learn the three of them had seen their father taken away by Syrian soldiers, and their home was also bombed. And they lost their mother in the bombing."

But even if they've started the process, it could take up to five months to bring a new brother or sister to the States, as there's plenty of red tape to get through. In fact, many are raising red flags about the reported adoption altogether, as currently there are laws against international adoption when it comes to Syrian orphans (though they remain murky at best). Guess we'll have to wait and see if Saint Angelina can pull off the impossible. 

Update, 4/20: Now that Angelina Joliemust we refer to her by her other name?—is recovering from having her ovaries and fallopian tubes surgically removed, she and Brad Pitt are reportedly renewing their efforts to welcome a seventh child into their family.

The Express reports Jolie and Pitt "believe the time is right to adopt another orphan from [Syria], most likely a daughter," and that they will bring her or him home to California by the end of the summer. (It was previously reported a Syrian boy would become the newest Jolie-Pitt kid.)

During a speech in November 2013, the actress called on the world "to save a generation of traumatized, isolated, and suffering Syrian children from catastrophe."

Original post, 2/9: The Brangie Bunch might be getting a new addition: Moussa, a 2-year-old boy from Syria.

According to Woman's Day, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly adopting a fourth child, whom Jolie met during one of her tours as a United Nations ambassador.

"Moussa was just beaming from ear to ear and 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," a source tells the magazine. "She kissed him on the top of his head and then they were basically inseparable for the rest of the visit."

The toddler will join Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox, which makes a total of seven Jolie-Pitt children under the age of 13. Godspeed.
