Namibia’s Tourist Hopes Over Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt Circus

Government officials in Namibia hope Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s visit to the African country will lead to an influx of tourists.

The superstar couple are currently holed up in a fortress of a compound in Namibia, while the press constantly speculates about whether seven-months pregnant Jolie will give birth there or not.

In a statement, Namibia’s ambassador in the U.S., Hopelong Lipinge, says, “It would be an honor for Namibia to become the birthplace of the Pitts’ first biological child.

“If Angelina Jolie gives birth in Namibia, she would have done for our tourism sector what our tourism board budget cannot do in a year.

“The publicity we are receiving is because of Angelina and Brad and not the paparazzi. The paparazzi will not come to Namibia on their own. They will only do so when following a celebrity.

Angelina and Brad Pitt can boost tourism but the paparazzi cannot.”

Jolie: ‘We’re Prepared for Anything’

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are prepared for every scenario as they await the birth of their baby–but they still don’t know where the tot will be born.

But, in a TV interview, she remains coy about plans she and her boyfriend might have between now and the birth.

She says, “We’re just hoping it doesn’t happen when… We don’t know where it’s gonna happen or where it’s gonna be.

“We’ve been smart about this and we’re as prepared as (possible). Things will be as they will be… I’m ready for anything.”
