Angelina Jolie gives birth in France, says report

Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie has given birth in France to twins fathered by actor Brad Pitt, bringing the Hollywood couple's brood to six children, according to the celebrity television programme "Entertainment Tonight."

The report, which was attributed to an unidentified person close to the 32-year-old actress, contained no details, and there was no immediate comment from representatives for either Jolie or Pitt.

It was just two weeks ago that Jolie publicly acknowledged she was pregnant with twins during an interview at the Cannes Film Festival, where she was promoting the animated film "Kung Fu Panda" and the latest Clint Eastwood drama, "The Exchange."

In Touch magazine reported this week that Jolie had been ordered to bed for the rest of her pregnancy and was due to give birth via a Caesarean section around mid-July.

Jolie and Pitt, 44, together have adopted three-year-old daughter Zahara, six-year-old son Maddox and four-year-old son Pax. They also have a biological daughter, 22-month-old Shiloh.

Jolie, who turns 33 next month, won an Academy Award as best supporting actress for her role in the 1999 film "Girl, Interrupted."
