Okay, so let’s see: We’ve got Madonna, Angelina, Britney, Cruise, and now DiCaprio all taking that extra step and adopting children from third-world countries. Leo isn’t about to become a father necessarily, but while filming Blood Diamond in South Africa, he met a small girl, and “fascinated by her, decided to adopt, according to the New York Post.”

Unlike those above, Leo will not be bringing the girl home, but instead will be sending money and checking in on her via phone. Britney took similar steps after her adopted child was left homeless in 2004 from the Indian Ocean tsunami. It remains to be seen whether the relationship between him and the girl will reach a point where he takes a more personal role in her life.

While in Africa, Leonardo had the chance to meet and work with 24 orphaned children from the SOS Childrens Village in Maputo, Mozambique. The children were asked to be extras in the film and got to spend part of their summer break traveling to the movie set and working with the actors.

Good on ya, Leo! And good luck being a long-distance Dad!
