Lara Croft Tomb Raider heroine Angelina Jolie has adopted a Cambodian baby-boy in Africa less than twelve months after her induction as goodwill ambassador for the United Nation High Commission for Refugees.

Jolie’s father, former Oscar-winner actor Jon Voight, made the shock revelation to a stunned press while attending the annual Oscar nominees lunch at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel. "Angelina has just got a baby yesterday, a Cambodian baby boy. So I'm a grandpa." Voight announced in Los Angeles on Monday. "I don't know much about it but I would be willing to go over and babysit."

Angelina Jolie, who wed film star, singer and director Billy Bob Thornton last year, has named the 7-1/2 month-old boy Maddox and will raise him in the United States. "We are very grateful to have him in our lives," the two said in a joint statement earlier today.

Jolie will remain in Cambodia for the next two months to conclude shooting the Martin Campbell helmed international feature film Beyond Borders with British co-star Clive Owen. Beyond Borders is a love story between an American named Sarah Jordan (Jolie) and British doctor Nick Ward (Owen). The story takes place during the course of many years and is set against the backdrop of worldwide humanitarian efforts.
