Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has filed papers to adopt a Vietnamese child with her partner Brad Pitt, according to an adoption official in Vietnam.
Angelina Jolie has already adopted from Cambodia and Ethiopia
Vu Duc Long, head of the country's international adoption department, said he had received papers a few days ago asking for "permission" to adopt.
"We consider her like any other American who wants to adopt children from Vietnam," Vu Duc Long said.
Two of the couple's three children were adopted from Cambodia and Ethiopia.
"She is not yet married so the file was from her individually. It will take a few months for us to consider this," Vu Duc Long said.
The actors spent the Thanksgiving holiday last November in an orphanage near Ho Chi Minh City playing with the children.
Jolie gave birth to Brad Pitt's child last May
Last May, the pair had a baby daughter in Namibia, called Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt.
Pitt later told US TV programme Today that becoming a parent was the "best thing" he had ever done.
In 2002, Jolie adopted her first child, Maddox, from Cambodia, who is now five. Three years later, she signed papers to adopt an Ethiopian baby called Zahara, who is now two.
Back in June, Jolie told US news network CNN they had plans to adopt again, saying their decision would be based on "the balance of what would be best" for their current children.
