Angie And Brad Buy A Home In France

Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their brood may be saying bien-venue to France! The duo – who set up a temporary home in Namibia in 2006 in anticipation of the birth of Shiloh, 21 months – have made an offer on an 850-year-old stone house in Eygalieres, in the country's Provence region, a real estate source tells Us Weekly.

Brad and Angie– who has taken her baby bump everywhere from Texas to Baghdad – originally looked at the $20 million, fully renovated structure (official name: Mas de la Chapelle St. Sixte) last year, the source tells Us, but lost interest when they learned Brad would not be given consent to build a motorbike circuit on the five-acre garden. "As soon as they found out it was now possible, they jumped at the chance," the source tells Us.

The couple may be eyeing the home as a place to settle after Angie– whose mother was of French Canadian descent – gives birth to her next baby (she is due in early summer). Angie has had "long conversations" with the American Hospital of Paris about delivering there, a second source tells Us. "Angelina knows all about our reputation," says the hospital source. "She is certain she'd be happy giving birth here." Angelina has been spending time in Austin, Texas while Brad films Tree of Life nearby.
