Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are overjoyed with Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pit

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are overjoyed with Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt

New parents Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have donated $300,000 to help impoverished African children - to mark the birth of their daughter.

The child was born the night of Saturday, May 27 in the African country Namibia where the Angelina and Brad Pitt - who was present at the birth - have spent the last two months living with their two adopted children, Maddox, 4 and 16 month-old Zahara.

Pitt, like many new dads, was offered the chance to cut the cord - the
lifeline which joins mother and baby - by medical staff and reportedly
jumped at the chance.
The couple's obstetrician, Jason Rothbart, who travelled to the Southern
African country from the US to be at the birth, revealed Brad carried out
the impromptu procedure and has also revealed the baby's weight.
He said: "The baby was a healthy 7lb. Brad was with Angelina the entire time
and cut the umbilical cord. The surgery and birth went flawlessly."

"Angelina and Brad are overjoyed with Shiloh," a friend of the couple told Star. "She's beautiful."

The origin of the girl's unusual name has been the source of much
speculation over the weekend.
One suggestion is that the Hollywood couple named their first born after
where they conceived.
Shiloh is a place in California where the pair rendezvoused nine months ago
while Brad was on a photo shoot.

Shiloh also means "the peaceful one" in Hebrew - a reference to the
Messiah - while Nouvel is the French word for "new" - when added together
the name can be translated as 'New Messiah'.

Brad and Angelina - who have been actively involved in the work of Third World charities - have also pledged $15,000 to build a school and a community centre in the Namibian town of Swakopmund.
Namibia's deputy Environment and Tourism Minister Leon Jooste said the generous donation will be used to improve the maternity wards of local hospitals.
The happy couple have expressed their gratitude to the local community in a statement, it read: "We want to contribute to Namibia and the people who have been so gracious to us at this time."

The birth comes as Brad's ex-wife Jennifer Aniston — whose relationship with her beau and The Break-Up co-star Vince Vaughn is on rocky ground — is busy promoting the film, which opens nationwide on June 2 reports Star Magazines.

Meanwhile, according to a government statement the baby, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, could be given Namibian citizenship if the parents choose to do so. The statement said the family will remain in Namibia "for some time" to allow Angelina and the new baby time to recuperate reports TMZ.

Tensions between Brangelina and the press continued. John Liebenberg, a South African photographer, appeared in court on Monday on charges of trespassing at the Tiger Reef Beach Bar. He had been caught trying to shoot pictures as the happy family was enjoying some "time out."

Brangelina bodyguard Mickey Brett denied having anything to do with the reportedly excessively tough security measures that had been dished out, and also said he had nothing to do with the arrest of the photographer. He said that his security team is simply doing their job to keep the cameras off Angelina. "Angelina and the children have to hide behind curtains all day because you photographers won't leave them alone," he said. "
