Angelina Jolie has backed out of a talk in Italy in the midst of speculations that she is expecting another baby with Brad Pitt.
The â€œGood Shepherdâ€ actress was expected to provide a lecture at the UN linked Pio Manzu Centre, near Rimini, about global topics and the future of humankind.
Her much-anticipated lecture, which was part of a conference called The Flight Of The Hummingbird â€“ The Future Of Children In The Mind And Society Of The World, was canceled at the last minute due to â€œpersonal reasonsâ€.
Italian papers claimed it was because she discovered she is expecting her second child with Brad â€“ their fifth including adopted kids.
Letizia Manjani, a spokeswoman for the center, found it difficult to keep the news a secret â€“ despite her being under a gagging order.
The spokeswoman revealed, â€œAngelina canceled last week. Due to her privacy I canâ€™t confirm her pregnancy, but I can say that the Italian newspapers are correct in their reports.â€
