It is being reported that Angelina and baby Shiloh are doing fantastic and that Brad was at her side during the birth.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s new daughter, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, is described as, “a beautiful baby — she has tufts of brown hair, and Brad’s nose,” says an insider at the Cottage Hospital in Swakopmund, Namibia, where Angelina gave birth.
The couple’s first biological child was born via Caesarean section on Saturday, May 27. Brad was with Angelina’s brother, James Haven, waiting anxiously in the hallway, says the insider. Angelina is described as doing “very well.”
Their families are thrilled. “He loves children — he’s very good with them,” his grandmother Betty Russell tells In Touch .
“We just want them to relax and enjoy the whole thing,” Brad’s brother, Doug Pitt told In Touch . “I just want him to be able to enjoy the experience as much as possible without too much pressure. It’s going to be great for them.”
Back in the U.S., the manager for Jolie’s estranged father, Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, 67, told New York’s Daily News that Voight is “really excited for them both. He can’t wait to hold the baby in his arms and be grandpa.”
Angelina chose to give birth in Namibia because she’s felt a connection to the country since filming the 2003 movie Beyond Borders. Close friends also say she wanted the new baby to have an international kinship with her siblings, Maddox and Zahara, who were adopted from Cambodia and Ethiopia, respectively. Samuel Nuuyoma, governor of the Erongo region of Namibia, issued a statement saying, “I wish Angelina and Brad good luck and a healthy life with their beautiful daughter… Just like Angelina, this precious Namibian-born baby will be our ambassador.”
