Congratulations to the Pitt-Jolie brood! If they were in my apartment, they’d see that I’m puffing hard on a stogie in honor of the occasion–and also because I’m slowly, but surely turning into someone’s grandpa. The adoption process of Angelina’s latest, a three-year-old Vietnamese boy, has now come to a close. Born in November 2003, Pax Thien Jolie was taken into custody by Angelina today and he won’t be able to enter the U.S. for another week, during which time his American passport is being processed.
“Brad very much wanted to be there but is under contract working on a film in Los Angeles and as a result couldn’t go,” Trevor Neilson, Jolie’s adviser on international affairs, tells PEOPLE.
I’ve often thought that adoption would be a nice way to go. You know, rescue a needy child. Avoid getting fat. But, with my luck, adoption would probably still give me stretch marks somehow.
