Jolie Adopts Ethiopian Baby

ANGELINA JOLIE has agreed to adopt an Ethiopian baby girl orphaned by AIDS.

The GIRL, INTERRUPTED beauty will complete the formalities of the adoption today (06JUL05) and will name her new daughter ZAHARA MARLEY, reports US magazine People.

Jolie, who spends much of her time touring the work as a goodwill ambition for the United Nations, is unwilling to reveal more details but she says she and her adopted Cambodian son MADDOX, three, are "very happy to have a new addition to our family".

But the 30-year-old wants to make it clear she remains a single mother, despite constant rumours of romance with her MR AND MRS SMITH co-star BRAD PITT.

A friend tells People magazine, "Angie's over the moon. It's a dream come true. She's always wanted to extend her family. Angelina's adopting as a single mother and she wants that emphasised."

Twice-divorced Jolie has made no secret of her desire to extend her family and following a tour of Ethiopia earlier this year (05), she said of her son, "He is in love with Africa, so he has been asking for an African brother or sister."
