13 Jan – Bigger is better, that could be the motto Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt go by as word has it, they have welcomed a seventh child into their family.

The couple have reportedly adopted a Cambodian boy, Allouy Shoun, according to Radar Online, making him their second child to be adopted from Cambodia.

It was reported that Angelina met the 16-month-old boy while filming "First They Killed My Father" in Siem Reap.

Daughters Shiloh, 9, and Zahara, 10, seem to be following in their mother's footstep as not only did they bond with Allouy and his family, but the girls have also bought them new clothes and new bikes.

The relationship reportedly started when Allouy's 16-year-old sister, Leida, approached the girls and told them of her family's situation. The Jolie-Pitt family has since been sponsoring the Cambodian family of 15, where Allouy is the youngest out of 13 siblings.

The Jolie-Pitt's brood started with the adoption of 13-year-old Maddox, who Angelina adopted from Cambodia at the age of seven-months-old back in 2002.

This was followed by the adoption of back then six-month-old Zahara in Ethiopia in 2005. The children took on the surname Jolie-Pitt after Brad Pitt decided to adopt Angelina's kids too. The couple's first biological daughter, Shiloh, was born in 2006.

Not a year later, Angelina adopted back then three-year-old Pax from an orphanage in Vietnam, with Brad successfully adopting him too in 2008. Their fifth and sixth children come in the form of twins Knox and Vivienne, born in 2008.

Apart from being devoted parents, the Jolie-Pitts are keeping busy in the movie industry.

Brad was most recently seen in "The Big Short" while Angelina is directing her Cambodian movie and voicing Tigress in the upcoming "Kung Fu Panda 3".
