Uh-oh, Angelina visited some Syrian refugees in Jordan — so you know that probably means the Brangelina Bunch is about to grow.

Jolie and Brad Pitt are planning to adopt a baby girl from Syria, in addition to eventually having another biological child, according to The Sun. That will make eight children total, if you’re counting.

“She has been particularly touched by the situation in Syria,” said the source. “The publicity would help draw the world’s attention to what’s going on there.”

However, once again she is leaving advocates for the thousands of American orphans scratching their heads.

• Kanye West and Kim Kardashian caught a “friend” trying to sell baby pictures after they sent out bogus shots just to see if anyone would try it.
• Rick Santorum is now the CEO of a frothy new Christian film company named EchoLight.
• Chris Brown has been charged for a hit-and-run stemming from a fender bender he had in which he turned over allegedly false information to the other driver.
• This week is the fourth anniversary of both the deaths of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett.
• Miley Cyrus tweeted a photo of her dad Billy Ray’s female co-star from “Chicago” and called her dad out to “tell the truth or I’ll tell it for you.”

• Actress Aubrey Plaza (“Parks and Recreation”) is 29.
• Jason Schwartzman (“Bored To Death”) is 33.
• Director Paul Thomas Anderson (“Magnolia”) is 43.
• Actor Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”) is 43.
• Actor Chris O’Donnell (“NCIS: Los Angeles”) is 43.
• Actor Nick Offerman (“Parks and Recreation”) is 43.
• Singer Patty Smyth is 56.
• Musician Chris Isaak is 57.
• Guitarist Mick Jones of The Clash is 58.
• Brazilian musician Gilberto Gil is 71.
