Apparently one of the most-discussed topics at this year’s Cannes Film Festival is Angelina Jolie‘s pregnancy.
First, Jolie’s Kung Fu Panda costar Jack Black spilled the beans and confirmed that Jolie and partner Brad Pitt are expecting twins. Fellow costar Dustin Hoffman revealed her due date as Aug. 19 – and the Today show passed along the news Thursday morning – but it’s more likely that Jolie will give birth prior.
The new arrivals will be the fifth and sixth children for the Jolie and Pitt. The family currently consists of Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, who turns 2 this month.
“I’m very happy,” said Jolie, 33, according to Today. “Like most women, I love being pregnant. [It makes] you feel more like a woman than you’ve ever felt. You just feel like everything about your body is there for your baby.”
During the on-air interview, Jolie said that she would “possibly” stay in France for the births, and that she and Pitt preferred not to disclose the sex of the babies.
The Jolie-Pitt clan have been staying in France at Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s historic Florentine-styled Villa Maryland.
Morales also reported that the parents do everything they can to keep their children aware of their individual native customs and heritages.
Of Zahara, said Jolie, “Our daughter’s very proud that she’s African.” Of Maddox and Pax: “And our boys are very proud that they’re Asian – they know about their country down to their food or their flags or their music.”
Jolie also admires her children’s curiosity, saying they “ask great questions about life. They ask questions about war that are poignant and spot-on, because they’re the questions we should all be asking ourselves.”
