Angelina and Brad did their bit for Namibian tourism by confirming that Shiloh will have Namibian citizenship in a press conference today. They praised the medical care they received in the African nation and tried to justify their extreme security measures. They also said they’re coming back to the states in just a few more days:
“We couldn’t have picked a better place to have our child,” said Jolie, looking healthy and relaxed in a black dress. Pitt agreed: “We are very proud that our daughter was born here”.
Pitt said the couple had “done their homework” before deciding on Namibia as the birthplace of their first biological and third child.
“The health of our daughter and Angie’s was imperative. We’ve had absolute top-notch medical assistance,” Pitt said.
The couple reiterated their gratitude to the people of the sparsely populated country, which has come under intense media interest since their arrival two-and-a-half months ago.
“We are eternally grateful to the Namibian people,” Pitt said. “Namibia is one of Africa’s best kept secrets – until we came of course.”
The couple had been “afforded a lifestyle here we could not have anywhere else” and that Namibia has been “a wonderful place to be with our kids.”
The couple said they planned to remain in the country for just a few more days before returning to the United States. “Just a few more days. My mother is dying to see the baby,” Jolie said.
On the tight security around the couple, Jolie said they had wished this had not been necessary but felt “the birth should be done in a way that was peaceful.”
Pitt explained that having “a child with a bounty on its head” before its birth, had brought about the need for bodyguards to shield the family.
Pitt said he’s going to work on “Oceans 13″ next, while Jolie will concentrate on her role as a mother.
Our favorite reader Millie says of these pictures that Angelina “looks fantastic and is clearly breastfeeding.” We agree. To borrow an expression from The Bastardly, Ow!
Angelina and Brad are shown with Namibian first lady Penehupifo Pohamba, regional governor Samuel Nuujoma and Child Welfare Minister Marlene Mungunda.
