Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are back on track as a couple, so much so that the pair may be close to adopting another child together.

InTouch talked to a close friend of the couple who said another addition to the family may be coming soon after the pair fought through a rough patch and staved off divorce.

“They’re celebrating saving their marriage with the best present possible: a seventh child,” the friend said. “Now that the divorce is off and they’re back on track, they feel adopting another child will strengthen their relationship even more.”

Pitt and Jolie are said to be looking throughout Africa, where many of their adopted children have been born, as they start the process.

“Brad and Angelina are putting the wheels in motion to adopt an older child from South Africa, Burundi or Ethiopia, where Zahara was born,” the friend said.

“Brad and Angie also believe that adopting an older child will make people aware of orphans who are often overlooked. According to Angie, everybody seems to want to adopt babies when there are so many other wonderful, worthy and deserving older children out there.

“They feel that by adopting a child who is 10 or older, he or she will mix in better with their rambunctious kids, who are getting bigger by the day.”

The celebrity couple have six kids as of now: Maddox (14), Pax (12), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10), and twins Knox and Vivienne (8).

“The kids can’t wait to add another brother or sister to their gang of six!”
