And baby makes...nine or eleven? How many Syrian children are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt adopting?

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are said to be expanding their brood of six by adopting a Syrian orphan, according to latest reports.

The Hollywood actress reportedly met up with three Syrian brothers who were orphaned after their father was taken away by soldiers and their mother killed in a bombing incident.

Angelina and Brad are already parents to six children, three biological including Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, and three adopted, Maddox ,13, from Cambodia, Pax, 11, from Vietnam, and Ethiopian Zahara, 10.

The 38-year-old actress, who is a UN Special Envoy for Refugees, is said to have wanted to adopt all three children, but it was claimed that she was stopped as Brad allegedly said it would be hard for their children to adjust to the sudden change in family dynamics. 

‘Angie wanted to adopt all three, but when she got back to the United States, and told Brad about it, he said no,' a RadarOnline source has claimed.

‘Going from six children to nine was just way too much, and Brad was concerned about how it would impact their other kids. But Angie didn't put up a fight. She knew it just wouldn't work. But they compromised at adopting one.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for the stars to comment.
