Angelina Jolie‘s obstetrician, Dr. Michel Sussmann, assured the press at a news conference in the South of France Wednesday that all is well with the expectant mom – something that she and Brad Pitt want the world to know.

“Everything is normal,” the obstetrician said in French, as he also said in English, “She is very well, and she’s okay. … Brad and Angelina want everyone to know that everything is going well.”

The babies, he said, will arrive “in the weeks to come.”

Jolie, who is expecting twins, checked into the medical center this weekend. On Wednesday, Pitt dropped by with two special guests: daughters Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2.

“It is simply a visit of surveillance, no birth,” Sussmann said of his patient.

Saying that Jolie’s “very, very nice,” the doctor added, “She will stay in the hospital until the birth. I will stay with her.”

What he was not specific about was the due date. “This is something you can’t program, you never know for sure,” he said.
