  • Angelina Jolie finally confirms she's expecting twins

    Angelina Jolie has confirmed what everybody has been whispering – that she’s expecting twins.

    The blooming actress – who looked stunning in an aqua Alberta Ferretti dress – was rather forced into her confirmation by her latest co-star, Jack Black, as they promoted their new movie, Kung Fu Panda, on the first day of the Cannes Film Festival.

    Loose-jawed Jack let the news slip while doing a joint interview with Jolie. He joked: ‘You’re gonna have as many as [the] Brady Bunch when you have these,’ during a chat with Today show’s Natalie Morales.

    Asked by Morales if she is in fact having twins, Jolie replied: ‘Yeah, yeah, we’ve confirmed that already. Well, Jack’s just confirmed it actually.’

    The children will be the fifth and sixth forJolie and her partner Brad Pitt. The family currently consists of Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, who turns 2 this month.

    But Jolie was keeping the babies’ gender a closely-guarded secret. When pressed, she said: ‘We would like to keep that private.’

    The Jolie-Pitts are currently staying in France at Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s historic Florentine-styled Villa Maryland. It is reported Angelina is set to give birth there – the native country of her late mother.
