  • Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie set up house in French villa

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have headed to France to set up home for what sources say will be a ‘stay of long duration’.

    It is thought that Angelina will reside there until she gives birth to her second child by Brad Pitt.

    The couple, their four children, two nannies and three bodyguards arrived in a private Gulfstream jet at Nice and drove to nearby St Jean Cap Ferrat.

    According to local sources, the A-list pair are staying at Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s historic Villa Maryland.

    The grandiose villa has majestic views of the Mediterranean and a pool that overlooks a yacht harbour. And it’s not the first time Brangelina have stayed there – the couple borrowed the villa for a one-week stay in 2006 just before Angelina gave birth to Shiloh.

    Pitt and Jolie are expected to stay in St Jean Cap Ferrat through the Cannes Film Festival, which runs from 14-25 May. Angelina is scheduled to walk the red carpet for two films, Kung Fu Panda on 15 May and Clint Eastwood’s The Changeling on 20 May.

    The villa has year-round staffing of 12 and is often used by Allen for celebrity-packed dinners during the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix weekends.
