Angelina Jolie Leaves Vietnam With Newly-Adopted Son

U.S. actress Angelina Jolie left Vietnam March 21 on a private jet. Accompanying her was her newly-adopted three-year-old son, whom she has named Pax Thien Jolie. A fusion of Latin and Vietnamese, the name translates to "peaceful sky."

The actress spent her week in Vietnam shielding the boy from media attention. She and her partner, actor Brad Pitt, made a surprise trip to Vietnam last November, when they visited the Tam Binh orphanage near Ho Chi Minh City.

Angelina Jolie filed adoption papers as a single parent, as she and Pitt are not married.

The couple have three other children: Maddox, 5, adopted from Cambodia; Ethiopian adoptee Zahara, 2; and a biological infant daughter, Shiloh.
