Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are on the move again.

On Wednesday, just days after celebrating the holidays in Namibia, Africa, the couple made an impromptu stop at the St. John s Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center in Springfield, Mo., the town where Pitt grew up.

“They called a little bit ahead, about an hour ahead, and requested to tour the pediatric center,” hospital spokesperson Cora Scott said Thursday. “They stayed about 45 minutes. It was a very nice visit.”

Last year, Pitt and Jolie, along with Pitt’s brother and sister and their families, donated $1 million to St. John’s Foundation for Community Health and dedicated the pediatric cancer center to Pitt’s mother, Jane.

“Jane Pitt is a gem in our community,” Scott said. “She’s a very wonderful woman who cares so very much about the well being of children.”

During the visit Wednesday, the Hollywood couple were accompanied by Pitt’s parents and his brother Doug.

According to Scott, Pitt and Jolie didn’t mention their New Year Eve’s plans, but for now it seems that the couple and their six kids are spending time with their extended family.
