If rumors currently doing the rounds on Hollywood's starry streets are anything to go by, the Pitt-Jolie clan has just found its newest member.

Although it may seem like the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie household must be bursting at the seams by now, the parents of six are apparently close to adopting their seventh child, a Colombian baby named Allouy Shoun from the slums of Siem Reap.

Angelina Jolie-Pitt is currently in Cambodia helming her latest project, a Netflix Original Picture entitled First They Killed My Father, an adaptation of Cambodian Loung Ung’s 2000 memoir, 'First They Killed My Father: A Daughter Of Cambodia Remember.' It's during her stay here that she seemingly came across the baby boy and is currently sponsoring his family.

According to reports, Jolie came across Allouy when her daughters Zahara and Shiloh were approached by his family. And, shocked by the family's apparent poverty (13 people, living in a tiny space), offered to provide financial support, somewhere in the region of $1million.

It would seem that Zahara and Shiloh have inherited their mothers generous nature, as they purchased two bicycles and new clothes for the family. A gift for which Leida Shoun, Allouy's older sister, has openly declared appreciation,

"We only had one bicycle for the entire family and it was old. So for us this is an amazing gift. Shiloh and Zahara are very good, very nice people.

"We have known them for a while. They sponsor us. I play with Shiloh or Zahara. They take us to the arcade in the Angkor Centre. I like it when we play ball."

If the adoption goes through, this will be the fourth child adopted by Jolie and Pitt, who have already provided a new home for Maddox (14, Cambodia), Zahara (11, Ethiopia) and Pax (12, Vietnam).

First They Killed My Father will be the fifth feature length directed by Angelina Jolie. Her last project, By The Sea, wasn't exactly well received by critics, so let's hope this next venture garners a warmer reception!
