THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST star Jim Caviezel is reportedly on the verge of adopting a three-year-old Chinese boy.

The actor and his wife KERRI, both devout Catholics, have been praying for a family for years - without luck.

But the 36-year-old actor has now unofficially adopted a little boy, called BO and he's just waiting for papers to make the process official.

A friend tells US tabloid NATIONAL ENQUIRER, "They took little Bo home to their house near LA and he's been with them ever since.

"Bo's adoption hasn't been finalised and they are praying everything will go through alright."
