Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie to adopt a Filipino child?

Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were reported to have inquired about a possible adoption of a Filipino child from Hospicio de San Jose in Manila, a home of orphans and the oldest Catholic charitable institution in the country.

Talks about the couple's plan started to spread following a Twitter message by Manila Standard Today columnist Harold Geronimo last February 28.

Geronimo already clarified through Manila Bulletin that the information he accidentally learned was only an inquiry and no follow up steps had been made by the couple or their representative.

So far, no official statement from the couple on any website, blog, social network, TV or paper has surfaced. Since 2009, they were already rumored to have tried adopting a Filipino child.

Brad Pitt raises children Maddox (9), Pax (7), Zahara (6), Shiloh (4), and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with Angelina Jolie.
