Namibia has become the subject of huge interest in the US since the arrival of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, according to the country's US ambassador reports BBC news UK.
As Jolie herself revealed on Thursday's Today show, she's not ruling out having the couple's baby in the country. "We just don't know where it's going to happen or where it's going to be," Jolie told interviewer Ann Curry, who asked if this week's PEOPLE cover girl had a doctor nearby. "We've been smart about it," replied Jolie. "Things will be as they will be. I'm ready for anything." Namibian officials are viewing Jolie's statements as really good news, reports People Magazine
Iipinge said that the Namibian embassy in Washington has been "inundated with calls from the media and individuals inquiring about Namibia," including requests from major media outlets for video footage of the country's chief attractions, which include lush sand dunes.
"It would be an honor for Namibia to become the birthplace of the Pitts' first biological child," Iipinge said, saying privacy was one thing the remote African country could offer the Hollywood pair. "Never before have we had so much publicity. Angelina Jolie is not only a movie star, she is also the U.N. goodwill gmbassador and this is the combination which makes her the draw card," he said.
News24.com reports that Jolie's Hollywood dream of giving birth to her baby under African skies, soothed by the singing of tribal mantras while immersed in warm water, are not going as planned.
According to the news program, Jolie has been surrounded by burly security guards and had made enemies in the coastal resort of Swakopmund, where even schoolchildren and the elderly have been cleared off the stretch of beach, near their rented home.

CAA confirmed that “she is no longer a client��?.It is believed the sexy star will remain a free agent, rather than seeking other representation.
