Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will not be adopting from Syria, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE.

The couple, who have six children, have been rumored by multiple outlets to be expanding their family with a Syria adoption, but sources close to the couple say it is “totally false” and “absolutely not true.”

Jolie recently made headlines after penning a New York Times op-ed about having her ovaries removed after her doctor detected a possible sign of early cancer.

“I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt,” Jolie, 39, writes. “I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren.”

When asked about having more kids in the future, Jolie told PEOPLE in December, “Not at the moment, no. I don’t imagine so, but something could change tomorrow, so I don’t know.”

Aside from being parents, Jolie and Pitt, 51, will have leading roles as costars in the upcoming film By the Sea, which is written and directed by Jolie.
