Angelina Jolie has successfully completed the adoption process for her new son.

The three-year-old boy was picked up at 9 a.m. local time after Jolie recieved the official adoption agreement from the Tam Binh orphanage where the boy has been residing since November of 2003.

Local press claim that that the boy is named Pham Quang Sang and will be renamed Pax Thien Jolie.

His birth name means "light" in Vietnamese and Thien means "heaven." Vietnamese press also report that Jolie's new son cried and hid during the official ceremony, and that the actress comforted him.

Jolie's other adopted son, Maddox, was also present. They're pictured arriving in Vietnam here.

The Oscar-winning actress must now meet with U.S. consular officials who must review the adoption before a passport can be issued for the boy. From there, it's just a matter of how tightly Brad Pitt hugs his latest son.

If all goes according to plan, the 31-year-old actress could bring the child home by the weekend, meaning all future Brangelina reservations would have to be made for six.

The boy is reportedly healthy, friendly and a little bit shy, they said. He gets along well with other children and loves to play soccer. So he'll fit right in to this fun-loving brood!

In a harrowing, real life drama that rivals any of her movies, Angelina Jolie, admits to News of the World that authorities in a foreign country she won't name uncovered an elaborate plan to abduct the actress.

"It was in a small village. I won't say where, or with whom, but some gangsters planned to kidnap me and extort a massive ransom, " Jolie confesses to the British paper. "I was warned at the last minute, and managed to escape, luckily."

As a result of the incident, Brad Pitt has expressed concern for the safety of the couple's family, including children Maddox, 5, two-year old Zahara, and nine-month-old Shiloh Nouvel.

"I don't want to act like the Mother Teresa of Hollywood," Jolie says. "But I want to help where there is poverty and destruction. I love Brad very much and on our trips we pull together as a team. Things only get difficult when it affects our children."

The protective parents do try to shield their children from the dangers of the world, such as kidnapping or interactions with Sienna Miller.

Still, this won't stop the mother-on-a-mission from traveling to underprivileged countries in an effort to fight injustice. Jolie became an ambassador for the UN in August 2001 and has since been to more than 20 countries around the world on its behalf.

Jolie and Pitt are currently in the process of expanding their family, as they plan to adopt a toddler from Vietnam. Jolie credits motherhood with making her a better person.

"It made me feel like a complete woman," she says. "At times in my life I was lost, without a purpose, now I'm more grounded."

Okay, that settles it: Someone get Hilary Duff a kid ASAP before she stars selling herself on a street corner.

We hope you enjoyed the attention, Shiloh Nouvel.

You're on the verge of being replaced as the latest child in the Angelina Jolie brood. The lovely actress has reportedly filed papers to adopt a Vietnamese child, the country's top adoption official said Friday.

Angelina Cheating on Brad!

A U.S. adoption agency representing Jolie filed the papers at Vietnam's International Adoption Agency, said Vu Duc Long, the agency's director.

"She just filed the papers this week," Long said.

In case you've been living in a cave for the last few years: Angelina and her partner, Brad Pitt, have three children: 5-year-old son Maddox, adopted from Cambodia; 2-year-old daughter Zahara, adopted from Ethiopia; and Shiloh, who was born to the couple in May.

Long would not name the U.S. adoption agency working with Jolie, who applied to adopt as a single parent.

Kim Porter, meanwhile, is not pleased that Angelina's actions could knock her and Diddy's adorable twins off the front page of the celebrity baby newspapers. But that's just life.

Brad Pitt could learn a lot from James Rousseau.

The British model has somehow gotten Kate Bosworth to eat food - sadly, it seems as though Pitt may need to follow suit when it comes to his main squeeze.

Brad Pitt With Angelina

Reports are spreading that Angelina Jolie has had such a difficult time since moving to New Orleans in January that she's simply stopped eating.

It all began when the actress lost her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, to cancer last month.

The 5-foot-8 star now weighs 109 pounds, says a source close to the couple. "She isn't eating."

She's also "very lonely and desperate to make new friends," the same source states.

It's too bad Anna Nicole Smith passed away. She was also looking for a pal.

The source adds:

"Brad has been worried about her day and night. She has been under so much stress, and Brad is trying to be understanding."

He's also trying to understand how a one-legged woman can ever win Dancing with the Stars.

No, we don't mean Jennifer Aniston should hide her next boyfriend from this actress.

And orphans from other nations probably shouldn't make plans to move in with Jordana Brewster just yet.

Angelina Jolie Rules Brad Pitt

But the newly engaged actress does have something in common with Angelina Jolie and fans around the television world will soon find out what it is:

Brewster will be reprising Jolie's role in Mr. and Mrs. Smith for an upcoming series.

That movie, of course, is where Angelina and Brad Pitt grew quite close.

So while no male co-star has been named yet, his significant other may wish to keep an eye on how he and Brewster interact.

There's just something about playing married hit men that draw actors close to one another.

The same goes for big breasts.

Marcheline Bertrand, actress and mother of Angelina Jolie, died on Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

The 56-year-old Bertrand, who battled cancer for over seven-and-a-half years, was surrounded by her children, Angelina and son James Haven, as well as Jolie's partner, Brad Pitt.

"Marcheline was beautiful, caring and totally devoted to her children. I never saw her upset or sad, even after she was diagnosed with cancer," Lea Hunter, who once dated Haven, told People magazine. "She always treated me like a member of her family."

Bertrand, who had small roles in movies including 1983's The Man Who Loved Women, raised Jolie and brother Haven by herself after divorcing their father, Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, when Jolie was a toddler.

When Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was born in May, Bertrand told People:

"My heart is overflowing with joy with the new arrival of Brad and Angelina's third child. Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh are deeply loved children. They have very kind and caring parents who love and support each other in every way."

Zahara Jolie-Pitt is not pleased.

The adopted daughter of Brangelina just wants an ice cream cone.

Angelina Jolie Rules Brad Pitt

Merely a taste. One quick lick.

But Angelina Jolie is having none of it.

She sees what extra calories can do to previously thin, beautiful women. Why do you think Keira Knightley hasn't eaten dessert in 12 years?

Poor, powerless Brad Pitt, meanwhile, can only stand by and watch his daughter suffer. We thought he was stronger than that. But we may have the actor confused with his character in Fight Club.

In the end, Angelina, an ice cream cone isn't the end of the world. It's alcohol that's the Devil's beverage of choice. Just ask Lindsay Lohan.

To paraphrase his signature sign-off, Ryan Seacrest is out ... of patience for a certain beautiful actress.

E!'s resident red carpet monkey and host of American Idol was candid about his reaction to being brushed off during an interview before the Golden Globe Awards over the weekend.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt at the Golden Globes

On his KIIS-FM radio show in L.A. on yesterday morning, the metrosexual was simply none too pleased with Angelina Jolie.

"I asked her four questions and she didn't even answer me," he said. "I literally stood there and tried to ask a couple of questions. At one point I just kind of let the E! microphone sit in front of her for a second to see if she was going to acknowledge it, and she clearly wanted nothing to do with me or my question or my answer or any of it."

Seacrest had nothing but nice things to say about, Brad Pitt, however. He was standing next to his baby's momma throughout the awkward interview.

"Brad was fantastic."

He continued: "I think doing good is fantastic. A lot of people are benefiting around the world from their doing of all of these nobles things. But smile."

Cohost Ellen K then came to Angie's defense saying: "Well, she has said that she finds all these award shows a waste of time and money."

"Well then don't go," Seacrest shot back. "Don't go. Don't go support your man. Don't go."

The man does make a point. Part of being famous involves putting on a fake smile and spouting cliches into a microphone.

Or making a sex tape, if you're Kim Kardashian.

Only Brad Pitt could upstage Drew Brees.

While the latter has moved the New Orleans Saints to within one game of the Super Bowl, the former has simply moved into the city. And that's newsworthy enough.

Bored with Brad

Pitt and his lovely ladyfriend, Angelina Jolie, have taken up residence in the city most besieged by Hurricane Katrina. Naturally, children - Maddox,5, Zahara, 2, and 7-month-old Shiloh - have joined them.

"We love it there," Jolie told Us Weekly at the Golden Globe Awards after confirming the move. "The kids are going to go to school there. We're really looking forward to it."

So are locals, such as Jorge Palacios. The random dude said Jolie blended right in at a city restaurant the other night:

"No one at my table believed me when I told them it was her."

It's a good thing for Angelina that the Sports Gal wasn't anywhere in the vicinity.

Rest assured Brangelina will get to work with charities in the region. Aside from looking beautiful, it's what the couple does best.

Angelina Jolie knows a thing or six dozen about adopting children from other countries.

Therefore, she can sympathize with Madonna, whose efforts to adopt 1-year-old David Banda from Malawi have sparked controversy.

Angelina Jolie is The Tourist

"I have been horrified by the attacks she's been subjected to," Jolie tells the French magazine Gala. "All that should count is the happiness of her little David."

Nevertheless, Jolie whose son Maddox, 5, and Zahara, who turned 2 on Monday, are from Cambodia and Ethiopia, respectively, has some criticism for the singer.

"Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where (David) was born," Jolie says. "It's a country where there is no real legal framework for adoption. Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law. I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal."

She would, however, steal the huband of Jennifer Aniston. But that's not really news anymore.

On Friday, Malawian child welfare official Adrina Mchiela said the government is satisfied with the way Madonna has been caring for David.

"We have been monitoring her and so far we see a loving mother in Madonna and David is very fine," she told Reuters.

In her interview with Gala, Jolie also talks about her relationship with Brad Pitt.

"Don't go repeating it whatever you do, but, yes I love him. I love him a lot," she says. "After I met him my life seemed more harmonious."

We assume that's how Nicole Richie felt once she discovered vomiting.
