<p><span></span>When <strong>Angelina Jolie</strong> boarded Miami-bound American Airlines flight 1516 at 11:50 a.m. on Feb. 7, she was flying solo. Nestled into seat 1A, she casually flipped through <em>American Way</em> magazine, tuned in to the Meryl Streep flick <em>Julie & Julia</em> on her personal TV and noshed on wheat bread, fresh salad and marinated cheese antipasto. To top it off, she indulged in a vanilla ice cream sundae and a glass of red wine before blissfully reclining for a quick nap. </p>
But while the four-hour trek from LA provided much-needed me time, Angelina clearly had longtime boyfriend Brad Pitt and their six kids on her mind. As soon as the plane's wheels hit the tarmac, while waiting to disembark, she whipped out her white BlackBerry Bold to scroll through photos and struck up a conversation about her eclectic family with a fellow passenger.
"I'm such a squishy mom. I really am just a squishy mom," she said with a smile. "Brad is with one of [our kids] right now. I can't wait to get to them. I can't wait to just be
in bed hanging out with them!"
The image of Brad, 46, and Angie, 34, snuggling under the covers is in stark contrast to recent reports that have dogged the A-list couple. Just weeks ago, the duo were rumored to have consulted with an LA divorce lawyer and arranged their split by signing a $333 million deal, a charge the couple's lawyer strongly denied.
Now Life & Style can exclusively reveal that Brad and Angelina have decided to adopt baby No. 7, in what appears to be an attempt to save their relationship. "Angie is really happy with the state of the family, but yes, she wants more children," says an insider. "She's ready to roll again." (Angie famously told British magazine Stylist in its October issue, "I can see further additions to the family -- both adopted and our own.")
