Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt To Birth In Namibia
The arrival of the Hollywood heavyweight couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Namibia has ignited a media frenzy. International photogs have started arriving in the country in their quest to snatch a lucrative snapshot of the two actors. Speculation is rife that Angelina, who is reported to be eight months pregnant, will give birth to her and actor Brad Pitt's baby at a private lodge in Namibia. This contradicts earlier reports that Jolie planned to have the baby in France, in accordance with her mother Marcheline Betrand's wishes. Betrand reportedly wanted her daughter to maintain a "circle of life" by having her first baby in the homeland.
However, News of the World reports that Pitt and Jolie plan to stay in Africa for the birth – so that Jolie can continue her humanitarian work there right to the very end.
"They've fallen in love with Africa and want to help as much as they can over there," a source was quoted as saying. "Angelina has completely changed from her old partying days and she takes her United Nations responsibilities very seriously."
At the Namibian coast security is reportedly tight and secrecy surrounded the lodge yesterday where the couple, their two adopted children, Maddox and Zahara, and entourage are staying.
According to a published report, two Namibian journalists sitting on the beach near the lodge yesterday morning were approached by Ange's personal bodyguard.
The stocky, grey-haired muscleman politely requested that the two female reporters leave the scene.
Introducing himself as Micky, he stated emphatically that no photographs were allowed of the couple, as they were on a "family visit".
"This is a family affair, and Angelina is having a baby, so they are entitled to their privacy," he told the reporters, according to the Namibian.
"They are the most accommodating people in the world, but we ask you kindly not to take photos."
