The celebrity couple, dubbed Brangelina in the press, already have a daughter together - Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt - who was born in Namibia in 2006.
They have also adopted three more children - Cambodian-born son Maddox, daughter Zahara from Ethiopia and Pax, from Vietnam.
Their newest daughter is named after Jolie's mother, also an actress, who died of cancer last year.
