This morning brings breaking news from People magazine's Web site: After months of speculation, representatives close to both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have confirmed that the tabloid-titillating couple are expecting a child this summer.
According to the magazine, one of the first people to learn the big news was an aid worker from the Dominican Republic, where Jolie is currently on location shooting a film. Just one month ago Pitt filed papers to become the adoptive father of Angelina's two adopted children, Zahara and Maddox.
Will this finally put a stop to the bloodthirsty baby bookmaking that has obsessed the media since Pitt and Aniston separated amid speculation that she was unwilling to reproduce? How ironic that it was exactly one year ago today that our own Rebecca Traister penned these words about the Pitt-Aniston breakup: "The media lesson we're all being fed [is that] ... 'You may land a hot husband, ladies, but you'd better pop one out soon, or you won't keep him.'"
Looks like Angelina learns fast.
