Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, Angelina Jolie has virtually confirmed her twins will be born in France.

“I actually haven’t completely decided, but we are thinking of France,” the expectant mom, 32, said at the official press conference for Kung Fu Panda, the animated martial-arts movie, in which she lends her voice alongside Dustin Hoffman and Jack Black.

France would be a wise choice, she added. “It is the second language in our house.” (Cambodian and Vietnamese are also spoken in the Jolie-Pitt household.)

Black revealed Wednesday that Jolie was expecting twins with partner Brad Pitt, who’s looking after their four children during her media rounds in Cannes. Jolie, who’s also due in August, told reporters she and Pitt try to split up the duties. “I think I have a very even partner right now, and we are very balanced at home with our power-sharing.”

The actress also revealed that her children don’t hold back on comments when they see Mom onscreen. “Our eldest three have seen the film and love it,” she told reporters. “They are my biggest critics.”

Jolie also hinted strongly that more children are on the way. Asked by a Swedish reporter if her twins would be born in Scandinavia, she said: “Not this time, but there’s more babies. You know me.”

Despite Angelina and Brad’s growing family, that didn’t stop Dustin Hoffman from jokingly wondering “what if”? Said Hoffman: “There was a point in time where Angelina could have chosen between me and Brad.”
