Conflicting reports on Jolie giving birth

There were conflicting reports tonight about whether Angelina Jolie’s has given birth to twins in France.

There were conflicting reports tonight about whether Angelina Jolie’s has given birth to twins in France.

The showbusiness TV programme 'Entertainment Tonight' reported that the actress had given birth. The story, posted on the show’s website, cited an “source close to Jolie”.

But People magazine followed with a story quoting “a rep for the actress” as saying that Miss Jolie “has not given birth”.

Representatives for Miss Jolie and her companion, Brad Pitt, did not respond to phone and e-mail requests.

The couple known as Brangelina has four other children: 6-year-old Maddox, 4-year-old Pax and 3-year-old Zahara, who are adopted, and 2-year-old Shiloh.

The pair recently moved into the Miraval Estate villa in the French hamlet of Correns, in the Provence region, according to the mayor and the inn’s owner.

“They are people who I hope will live normally here,” Mayor Michael Latz said.

Security guards were blocking the gates to the estate today, while a postal truck and other maintenance vehicles regularly passed in and out.

Onno Stijl, owner of the L’Auberge du Parc inn, said it was a good thing they were moving in and could help business. He said he gets his wine from the estate’s vineyards.

“It’s a couple living here now like everyone,” he said by telephone.

The area, he said, “is a bit isolated but that gives it a certain … privacy.”

According to its website, the Miraval estate dates from pre-Roman times. It includes fountains, aqueducts, moats, a lake and vineyards that produce an organic wine distributed worldwide.

Pitt and Jolie may be Miraval’s first movie stars in residence, but Miraval has seen its share of rock stars. The estate includes a studio which has hosted the likes of Sting, the Cranberries and Pink Floyd, who recorded tracks for 'The Wall' album there.
