It's a Baby Girl for Jolie and Pitt

Thousands of miles from Hollywood but still within easy reach of celebrity hype, Angelina Jolie (photosAngelina Jolie photos) gave birth to Brad Pitt's daughter in Africa.

"The night of May 27, 2006 in Namibia, Africa, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt welcomed their daughter Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. No further information is being given", publicist Cindy Guagenti said to the press.

The birth came a little more than a month after another blockbuster delivery: a girl born to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (photosKatie Holmes photos). Jolie and Pitt had powerful help protecting their privacy from the government of Namibia, which refused to grant entry to reporters seeking to cover the birth without the actors' written permission. The government arrested photographers, confiscated film, ringed the couple's hotel with heavy security and set up large green barriers on the beach to shield their family.

Jolie and Pitt were linked romantically shortly after appearing together in the 2005 movie "Mr. and Mrs. Smith".

Jolie is a frequent visitor to Africa and serves as goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. She has two adopted children and both had their surnames legally changed to Jolie-Pitt after Pitt announced his intentions to co-adopt the children.

Pitt and actress Jennifer Aniston (photosJennifer Aniston photos) divorced last fall.
