Angelina Jolie Already Thinking of Another Adoption

10/16/2008 at 09:30 AM EDT

The wheels are already turning in Angelina Jolie's head, the Changeling star admitted in a lengthy Today show interview Thursday: She and Brad Pitt are considering another adoption.

"Soon?" asked host Matt Lauer when the actress and mother of six nodded in the affirmative.

While Jolie, whose twins Vivienne and Knox, are only 3 ½ months old, tried to avoid answering further, she did note, "You can't even start the process until any new children are six months old, to understand how the new family has settled."

As for how things settled after the most recent additions, Jolie, 33, said that the eldest, son Maddox, 6, was already "the professional big brother" to Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2. "He's done it so many times."

Then again, she said, "We have so many children that they're not really stunned anymore when kids come home.

"They're all at that great age that they are not threatened. They're independent. They don't need Mommy and Daddy all the time."

Will Keep Moving

She and Pitt generally see eye to eye when it comes to disciplining the children, she said, admitting, too, that the kids are so cute that it's difficult to deny their requests to crawl into bed with their parents.

Jolie also said that the family is likely to continue their peripatetic lifestyle and not settle in one place for a while, at least not until the children are older.

"So far," she says, "we've moved them a lot, and they like moving."

She also likes being with Pitt, she said, when reminded of a quote some years ago in which she declared she was better off on her own. "I met the right person," she told Lauer on Thursday. "I don't like being without him."
