“Yes, I’m pregnant,” the magazine quoted Jolie as telling a charity aid worker Monday in the Dominican Republic, where she is filming The Good Shepherd with Matt Damon. The report says the pregnancy was confirmed by representatives of both stars but does not identify them by name.
This is the first biological child for Jolie, 30, who is already the mother of son Maddox, 4, whom she adopted from Cambodia, and daughter Zahara, 1, adopted from Ethiopia in July.
Pitt, who is now divorced from former Friends star Jennifer Aniston, has denied Jolie was the reason for his split from the actress. Since the separation was announced, however, Pitt and Jolie have been nearly inseparable. Pitt has talked of wanting a family for years and is now taking steps to adopt Maddox and Zahara, including changing their names to Jolie-Pitt.
Jolie has never been happier, say friends. “This is a woman who values her relationships with her children more than anything,” a source tells People. “Now she is creating a family in the context of an adult relationship.”
The actress is also continuing her humanitarian efforts as a U.N. ambassador. The couple recently toured quake-devastated areas in Pakistan.
