Magazine Reports Angelina Jolie’s “Shocking Baby News”

Truth rating: 1

By Daniel Gates


“Angie’s Shocking Baby News,” blares the OK! magazine headline this week, promising a bombshell about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s family. So what’s the big scoop?

According to the tabloid, Jolie and Pitt “want a new baby in 2012.” Wait, that’s the “news”? “She and Brad have talked at length,” says a so-called “confidante” of the couple. “There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that she’ll have another child.”

In other words, OK! is speculating that Jolie and Pitt might add to their family in the next 12 months. That’s a far cry from the days (more than two years ago) when the tabloid insisted that Jolie was adopting a baby from Syria without Pitt.

Now, though, OK! is sure that she plans to give birth herself “despite her previous high-risk pregnancies.” As “evidence” of this development, the mag quotes recent interviews in which Pitt and Jolie both suggest that another child is always a possibility.

But that’s neither shocking nor news – Pitt and Jolie have repeatedly indicated that they may add to their brood. That said, sources close to the couple tell Gossip Cop there’s absolutely no timetable for adding to the family, nor does Jolie have specific plans to get pregnant in 2012.
