With three young children including a newborn baby girl to look after, most parents would feel they had quite enough on their plate already. The indefatigable Angelina Jolie, who welcomed little Shiloh into the world just last month, is already thinking about the next addition to her rapidly growing brood, however.

The 31-year-old bombshell has revealed she and boyfriend Brad Pitt are planning to welcome another new member to their household. "Next we'll adopt," she told CNN reporter Anderson Cooper. "We're looking at different countries."

Angelina, who is also deeply committed to her work as a United Nations goodwill ambassador, was appearing on television to promote World Refugee Day on June 20, but when the conversation turned to her much-talked-about family life, the Oscar-winner was only too happy to discuss her plans for the future.

She and Brad already have two adopted youngsters – four-year-old Maddox, who originally hails from Cambodia, and 16-month-old Zahara, who is from Ethiopia. And having recently welcomed their first biological child, Shiloh, the A-list pair are now weighing up the possibilities of giving their kids another new brother or sister. "It's going to be the balance of what would be best for Mad and for Z right now," she explained. "Another boy, another girl. Which country, which race, would fit best with the kids."
