Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are already parents to three adopted children – but is the Hollywood power couple planning to adopt from Haiti?

"I'm always open to children around the world. We're that kind of a family; Brad and I talk about that," Angelina said in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, who asked the actress if she was planning to adopt from the earthquake ravaged country.

Though she and Brad are open to the idea – the actress said that was not the focus of her three-day trip to Haiti.

"But that's not what we're focusing on at this time, by any means," she continued. "We're not here for that. We're here to see how we can help protect the children in the country and scale up the needs here."

Angelina said adopting should not currently be anyone's focus when it comes to the children of Haiti.

"For somebody who is an adoptive parent, I understand the urge to assist in that way," she said in the CNN interview airing this weekend. "Now is not the time, an emergency is not the time for new adoptions in any way."

The couple's three adopted children consist of son Maddox from Cambodia, daughter Zahara from Ethiopia and son Pax from Vietnam. Angelina and Brad also have three biological kids together, daughter Shiloh and twins Vivienne and Knox.
