A Santa Monica court on Thursday approved Pax Thien Jolie's name change to Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt, a court clerk confirms to People magazine. The name is a mouthful, but at least the child is adorable. And visible, unlike Jayden James Federline.
Pax, 3, was adopted from a Vietnamese orphanage in March, joining Pitt and Jolie's children Maddox, 5, Zahara, 2, and Shiloh, 1.
Because Vietnamese law makes it difficult for unmarried couples to adopt, Jolie adopted Pax on her own, but he is being raised by both her and Pitt. In April, Jolie formally requested that the court change her new son's name to Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt.
In January 2006, after Jolie made a similar request in the same court, her other adopted children, Maddox and Zahara, were officially named Jolie-Pitt. The decisions have worked out, at least according to celebrity gossip fans.
After all, Jolie is not currently receiving many votes on our Worst Celebrity Mother poll.
