Pax Is A Jolie-Pitt
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s latest family addition has officially taken their surnames. A Santa Monica court on Thursday approved Pax Thien’s name change to Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt, a court clerk confirmed to PEOPLE. Pax, 3, was adopted from a Vietnamese orphanage in March, joining Brad and Angelina’s three other children, Maddox, 5, Zahara, 2, and Shiloh, 1. Because Vietnamese law makes it difficult for unmarried couples to adopt, Angelina adopted Pax on her own, but he is being raised by both the actress and Brad. In April, Angie formally requested that the court change her new son’s name to Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt. In January 2006, after, Angelina made a similar request in the same court, her other adopted children, Maddox and Zahara, were officially named Jolie-Pitt.
