Brad and Angelina’s twins

Brad and Angelina expecting boy AND girl

Brad and Angelina are said to be ‘ecstatic’ at the news they are expecting fraternal twins, say US reports.

The Hollywood A-listers, who already have four children – Shiloh, 22 months, three-year-old adopted daughter Zahara, and two adopted sons, Maddox, 6, and Pax, 4 – will be making their clan a brood of six.

A source told American magazine In Touch: ‘They’ll be having a boy and a girl.

‘Because she took fertility treatment to help her ovulate, her babies are fraternal.

‘They’re ecstatic. She can’t wait.’

Angelina is planning to give birth in France and is currently bidding on a £10million seaside property close to the French Riviera, according to reports.

She will join a list of Hollywood stars who have had twins in recent times, including Julia Roberts, Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross and Jennifer Lopez, who welcomed Max and Emme last month.

Angelina said recently: ‘Our family has grown quickly. We have a lot of responsibility together… but every challenge has brought us closer.’
