Angelina Jolie has officially petitioned for boyfriend Brad Pitt to become the legal father of her adopted children ZAHARA and MADDOX by taking out four small ads in a local Los Angeles paper.

The actress placed classified ads between 9 and 30 of December (05) in Los Angeles newspaper the Daily Commerce, on behalf of her kids.

The ads, called 'Order to Show Cause for Change of Name,' are part of her court petition to legally change the names of the children Maddox and Zahara Jolie-Pitt.
