It seems the Brangelina bunch will soon be following in the footsteps of Johnny Depp by living in France. After months of house-hunting Brad and Angelina have reportedly decided to buy a chateau in Provence, and are planning to raise their growing family there. The couple are understood to have chosen Chateau Val Joanis, a 1,000-acre vineyard in Provence, as their new French base.
The jet-setting couple, who are already adoptive parents to six-year-old Maddox, Pax Thien, four and Zahara, three, as well as their one-year-old natural daughter Shiloh, are expecting a fifth child this summer. (Or childREN!)
And although Shiloh was born in Namibia, the actress apparently plans to have her next child in a developed country. “She has given up all thought of having her babies in Third World countries like she’d always planned,” revealed a source. “They agreed that the next time Angie was pregnant, they’d go to France. It holds a lot of happy memories for all of them.”
According to reports, Angelina sees having her baby in France as a way to honour her late mother, French-Canadian actress Marcheline Bertrand, who passed away last year.
“Giving birth in France will give her a certain feeling of peace about her mother’s death,” said the source, who added: “All of the kids love it there. It’s a good place for them to be.”
“Angelina is proud of her French roots and wants her latest addition to be born and raised there,” confirmed a pal.
