Brad Pitt's twin joy
Brad Pitt has confirmed to friends lover Angelina Jolie is expecting twins.
The 'Fight Club' star - who already has three adopted children, Maddox, six, Pax, four, and Zahara, three, as well as 21-month-old daughter Shiloh with the actress - has told pals they will soon be adding two more to their brood.
A friend is quoted on the Daily Mail website as saying: "Brad's been very quiet about this pregnancy so far but this was the weekend he decided to let the cat out of the bag. He's telling everybody close to him, because he is having to change his work schedule to get ready for the birth.
"They're having twins, Angelina is healthy, and he's thrilled that he's going to be a father once again.
"They didn't exactly plan this pregnancy, but they wanted more children and Brad says Angelina was very willing to have them herself."
Brad - who is cutting back on filming commitments to help look after his ever-expanding family - is also keen for Angelina to have the twins in their native US, unlike Shiloh's birth in Namibia in May 2006.
The friend added: "They want to have these children in Los Angeles or New Orleans. I don't think Brad wants to isolate himself and the family again like he did when Shiloh was born."
Angelina's pregnancy was confirmed at the weekend after she posed on the red carpet with a visible baby bump.
The 'A Mighty Heart' star showed off her ever-expanding stomach in a figure-hugging black dress at the Film Independent's Spirit Awards on Saturday (23.02.08).
