(Newser) – If Angelina Jolie does in fact adopt another kid with Brad Pitt, it won't exactly be her seventh—she already has seven “children” in Jordan she's kept secret since 2003. The “secret family,” as the National Enquirer oh-so-sensationally dubs it, is actually a group of orphans living with a surrogate mother at a children’s village; Jolie pays to support them and “considers the orphans as her own family,” a source tells the tab.

“If this story resembles the truth even slightly, then it's definitely more like ‘Angelina Jolie donated a bunch of money and these seven kids won't die now, so they like her,’” notes Azaria Jagger on Gawker, “but yada yada, let's get to the good stuff: If she has a second family in the Middle East, then surely she is cheating on Brad with...a Jordanian prince? An Arab sheikh? A Yemeni terrorist?”
