Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are rumored to be expanding their impressive family of eight.
Five years of welcoming their youngest bundles of joy, twins Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon Jolie-Pitt, actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are allegedly, once again, planning to welcome another set of twins. While it is unclear if Jolie, 38, is currently pregnant by her fiancé Brad Pitt, 50, OK! Magazine published claims this week that the “Maleficent“ star has recently started undergoing IVF (in vitro fertilization) treatments with hopes of becoming pregnant with twins.
“Angelina started IVF treatments a few months ago,” an insider told the magazine. “It can take a number of tries for it to work but the goal was to be pregnant as soon as possible.”
So why the desire for a dual pregnancy? According to the tabloid, Jolie and Pitt are fearful that the actress’s second upcoming preventive cancer surgery, in which she will have her ovaries removed, will hinder them from expanding their biological brood. “They wanted to rush ahead with another pregnancy before she goes in for that surgery,” said a source. “The reality is after her next surgery she may not be able anymore kids.”
Despite Jolie’s health concerns, the A-lister’s are also rumored to be hoping for twins in order to please their six children,: Maddox, 12; Pax, 10; Zahara, 9; Shiloh, 7; Knox and Vivienne, both 5, who are all reportedly split on whether they want a new baby brother or sister. “The kids are divided,” said an insider. “They would love to make them all happy.”
While the couple is rumored to be actively pursuing another pregnancy, the duo is still reportedly open to the idea of adoption. “They’re not against adoption again but Angie says pregnancy is a miracle she is thrilled to experience at least one last time,” said a source. “She is so grateful to be healthy again and she wants to take full advantage of her body’s strength.”
Jolie and Pitt are expected to be tying the knot this summer over two years after their April 2012 engagement. While fans we will have to wait and see if their nuptials will include a possible baby bump sighting, Jolie is rumored to be excited about the idea of being an expectant bride. “Angie told me she loves the idea… [She] has been talking about how beautiful it will be to walk down the aisle while she’s expecting,” an unidentified friend revealed, adding that dad Brad Pitt is also thrilled by the notion. “They’ve been pushing for a bigger family as well as a wedding, so it really is a dream come true!”
