According to media reports, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in Namibia. The actress is reported to have arrived in the country on the weekend of April 8 with Brad Pitt and her two children Maddox Jolie-Pitt and Zahara Jolie-Pitt. Rumors are spreading that the actress plans to have her baby in Namibia at a private lodge.

Namibia’s daily newspaper, The Namibian, reported that wire reports emanating from overseas speculated that Jolie, who is pregnant with Pitt’s child, was coming to have her baby in Namibia.

According to a report on CNN’s website, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are staying at a secluded Namibian beach resort, surrounded by tight security, prompting speculation their baby will be born in Africa. Namibian media reported that immigration officials confirmed that the stars and five other people, including their two children, arrived in Walvis Bay, a City on Namibia’s coast, on Monday morning on a chartered jet from Paris. Pitt’s publicist said on Jan. 11 that Jolie, 30, is pregnant with the actor’s child. It was unclear when the baby will be born.

This contradicts earlier reports that Jolie planned to have the baby in France, in accordance with her French mother, Marcheline Betrand’s, wishes. Last month, it was rumored that Jolie would give birth in France as a tribute to her dying mother. Marcheline Betrand, who has terminal cancer, was born in France, although she now lives in the United States. Betrand reportedly wanted her daughter to maintain a “circle of life” by having her first baby in the homeland, according to the daily newspaper,

According to an article on the Knight Rider website, there are speculations that the couple may get married in Namibia. Namibia is a country in South West Africa. The actress spent time in the country in 2002 during the filming of the international movie on refugees, “Beyond Borders,” at Swakopmund, a resort town on the west coast of Namibia.
