A local governor in Namibia said Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt told him
they will have their baby in his country and are considering giving the
child a Namibian name, a newspaper reported Sunday.
Samuel Sheefeni Nuuyoma, the governor of the Namibian province where
the couple is staying at a heavily guarded lodge, said he had breakfast
Friday with the two stars, according to The Sunday Times of South Africa.
He said Jolie had made those choices because "she loves Namibia."
Namibian immigration officials confirmed earlier this month that the
couple and five other people, including two children, arrived in Walvis
Bay on a chartered jet from
Paris, prompting speculation their baby will be born in Africa.
The couple has been shielded from reporters by heavy security at a
secluded beach resort near Walvis Bay, in an area where Namibia's desert
sand dunes descend spectacularly to the sea.
But the Sunday Times carried what it billed as "exclusive" pictures of Jolie
hugging 1-year-old Zahara and Pitt carrying sleeping Maddox, 4, to a
sports utility vehicle. Both Pitt and Maddox sported matching haircuts.
It also had a photograph of a security official chasing a photographer
along the beach.
The newspaper also said Pitt had managed to evade paparazzi and go riding on an all-terrain
vehicle in the Namibian desert and the couple and the two children have
visited various game reserves and wildlife foundations.
Nuuyoma said he wanted his guests to feel "at home and free."
"Namibia is a country where everyone has the right to freedom of
movement, and they must not feel inhibited when they visit this beautiful
country of ours," he was quoted as saying by the Sunday Times. Nuuyoma
could not immediately be reached for more comment.
