Angelina adopted the now 4-year-old in March of 2007, in Hanoi, Vietnam. He added Pitt to his last name in May.

Jolie's oldest child, 6-year-old Maddox, was adopted from Cambodia. She also has two daughters: Zahara, 3, who was adopted from Ethiopia, and 21-month-old Shiloh, who was born to Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt, in May 2006.

Ever since she was young, she has wanted to adopt children, Jolie said in an interview published last year in a Vietnamese newspaper.

"Everyone would agree that children need to have a family," the paper quoted the Oscar-winning actress as saying. "I have the ability to help children fulfill that desire. Why should I say no?"
