Brad Pitt's publicist released a statement this evening acknowledging that his client plans to adopt Angelina Jolie's two children. The statement read: "We are confirming that Brad Pitt is in the process of becoming the adoptive father of both children. No further comment is being made." This apparently became necessary after the actor filed a legal petition earlier today to have Maddox and Zahara's last names changed to Jolie-Pitt. This is of interest primarily for the fact that neither Pitt, nor Jolie, nor anybody working for any of them, have ever admitted that the two are dating. I've never heard of anyone agreeing to adopt their alleged girlfriend's kids before admitting to having had sex with the mom, but I guess stars do things differently. More on this earthshattering story as things develop.
