Angelina Jolie has hinted she is planning to settle in France by enrolling her son Maddox in a local school.
The pregnant actress and her partner Brad Pitt, who recently splashed out £35 million on a property on the French Riviera, seem intent on staying in the country and educating their six children there after Angelina gives birth to twins.
A source said: "They have enrolled Maddox at a local school in Brignoles, it's the nearest school to their chateau, and he'll carry on where he left off at his French school in New Orleans.
"They are trying to get the other kids into a local nursery in September. They both want the kids to live normal lives, and they're going to stay in France."
Angelina - who has three adopted children, six-year-old son Maddox, four-year-old Pax, Zahara, three, and two-year-old biological daughter Shiloh, with Brad - has even hired a private tutor to ensure the whole family become fluent in French.
The source added to E! online: "Maddox has got a French teacher to help him over summer and to make sure he doesn't forget how to speak French, and the kids are all watching cartoons in French as well, rather than via English cable like they had at their last place.
"The French teacher is coming three times a week and spending time with all of the children, as well as Brad and Angelina."
