Rumours rife that Jolie expecting another baby

Angelina Jolie has cancelled plans to give a lecture in Italy this week amid reports she is pregnant with her second child fathered by Brad Pitt.

The Tomb Raider beauty was due to give a talk at the Pio Manzu Centre near Rimini as part of a conference entitled The Flight of the Hummingbird - The Future of Children in the Mind and Society of the World, but she pulled out at the last minute.

Local newspaper reports claim Jolie cancelled after discovering she was expecting. Spokesman for the centre Letizia Manjani appeared to confirm the claim.

"Angelina cancelled last week. Due to her privacy I can't confirm her pregnancy, but I can say that the Italian newspapers are correct in their reports," she said.

Jolie and her boyfriend Pitt have their own biological daughter, 16-month-old Shiloh, as well as their adopted children Maddox, six, Pax, three, and Zahara, two.

Pitt recently expressed his desire to expand their family saying, "We're ready for another one". - Wenn
