Angelina Jolie is a proud new mom of a 3-year-old Vietnamese boy named Pax Thien Jolie (above) born in November 2003, according to the orphanage where he has lived.
His name means Peaceful Sky – Pax is peace in Latin and Thien is sky in Vietnamese.
Jolie's rep says she took custody of the child on Thursday in Vietnam. They will remain in the country for about a week while the child's American passport is processed, according to People.
The boy had been living at the Tam Binh orphanage outside Ho Chi Minh City ever since he was abandoned at a hospital as a baby, according to adoption officials.
"He is in good health," orphanage director Nguyen Van Trung told the Associated Press, adding that the boy gets along with the other children and likes playing soccer. "He is a little bit shy."
