Jolie finds child birth 'fascinating'

Angelina Jolie loves every aspect of motherhood - even hailing giving birth by Caesarean section "fascinating".

The 32-year-old mother of four - who is currently expecting twins with partner Brad Pitt - insists childbirth is such a life-changing experience for her, it outweighs any pain she may feel during the process.

Jolie gave birth to daughter Shiloh, now two, via Caesarean and she is looking forward to welcoming her unborn babies into the world this summer.

She tells the new edition of Vanity Fair magazine: "I had a C-section (with Shiloh) and I found it fascinating. I didn't find it a sacrifice and I didn't find it a painful experience.

"I found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do."

Jolie and Pitt are also parents to adopted kids Maddox, six, Pax, four, and Zahara, three.
