Angelina Jolie Says She Wants To Be a Full-Time Stay at Home Mom

Angelina Jolie plans to stop making movies at least for a while to concentrate on raising her four children, the Hollywood mega-star told a Vietnamese newspaper.

Jolie, who Thursday adopted a 3-year-old Vietnamese boy she renamed Pax Thien Jolie, didn't say how long her sabbatical might take but added that raising her children is more important than her career.

"Now, I will stop making movies and will stay home to help Pax to get used to his new life," the star told the tiny Ho Chi Minh City Law newspaper in an exclusive interview published Friday.

"I have four children and taking care of the children is the most important thing for me at the moment. I am very proud and happy to be their mother," she was quoted as saying in the Vietnamese-language paper.

Jolie also said she hopes to learn some Vietnamese to communicate with Pax, who speaks only a few phrases of English, until he can adjust.

The international diva, UN goodwill ambassador and one-half of Hollywood's hottest power couple - the other half being Brad Pitt - managed to elude the world's press that descended on Vietnam this week.

But she granted an interview to the small Vietnamese-language paper published by the Ministry of Justice, which finalized the adoption on Thursday.

Her latest adoption brings her international family with partner Pitt to four children.

Pax joins five-year-old Maddox, adopted from Cambodia; Zahara, aged two, from Ethiopia; as well as baby Shiloh - the couple's biological daughter who was born in Namibia last May.

Pitt has been reported to be making a movie in the US and could not come to Vietnam with Jolie, who signed the adoption papers as a single parent because Vietnamese regulations do not allow unmarried couples to co-adopt.

I cannot help but feel AJ is a 'collector'. Yes, sure... They want to raise them when they are young (their words) but to keep adding kids at such a rate means no bonding/individual time. The time most babies receive from their parents as the 'baby'.

In my humble world, I would still be reeling from the adoption and the news of the pregnancy of the 2nd and 3rd.

Guess life is much faster in the fast lane. Quality time done rapidly.
