So, if you believe the gossip, it looks like Angelina Jolie is indeed planning on giving birth to her baby in Africa next month. At first I didn't really believe the reports and thought she & Brad would be coming back to the U.S. only because there have been so many stories about her allegedly being distraught that her mother is sick with cancer, so I thought she'd want to be close to her when she gave birth. Well, hopefully her mom is not as sick as reported and actually planning a wonderful trip to Africa, cuz according to government officials in the nation of Namibia, the couple is there to stay at least through the birth of the baby.
The NY Daily News reported that Samuel Sheefeni Nuuyoma, governor of the region where Jolie & Pitt are staying in a luxury lodge told the Sunday Times of South Africa, "They are having the baby here, and they talked about giving the child a Namibian name." They also report that Angelina was overheard saying that the couple "think it's a girl, but we're not 100% certain." One thing is for certain, if it's up to the Namibian government, Angie & Brad will be able to to make the birth of their child a paparazzi free event. According to NYDN, "Hotel security has set up a green cloth barrier to shield the lodge's garden from paparazzi and guards used pepper spray to drive away one shutterbug. Government officials have refused to grant work permits to photographers and have given the couple's thuglike bodyguards carte blanche."
