LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Angelina Jolie says she and Brad Pitt plan to have more children.
When asked by the Today Show's Matt Lauer Thursday morning if she had plans to adopt more kids, she nodded.
"Yeah," Jolie, 33, said. "I have something in mind." But she didn't say just when she would be adding to her family.
"It depends...you can't even start the process until any new children are six months old," Jolie said. "It's a smart thing...to understand when to bring another child in."
As for now, Jolie and Brad Pitt are focusing on their 3-month-old twins, Knox and Vivienne.
"They're great," Jolie said.
Jolie says her other children - Maddox, 7, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2 - have adapted well to the new additions.
"You know, we have so many children, they're not really stunned anymore when kids come home," Jolie said.
"Mad's like the professional big brother, he's done it so many times," Jolie says. "We prepared them... they knew [the twins were] coming."
The children "are all at that great age that they aren't threatened," Jolie continues. "That they are independent enough to not need mommy and daddy all the time, and to be able to enjoy the kids.
"They play with them, they change their diapers, they call them their babies, and they dress them up and you know, they have fun with them," Jolie says.
The actress also says she's "pretty much" on the same page with Pitt in raising their children, only disagreeing on minor events, like when to let the kids join them in bed.
"At the end of the day, they're so cute, we let them in!" Jolie says.
