Brangelina Puts Spotlight on Namibia

Posted by Melanie McKane on April 29, 2006 12:58 PM |

Angelina Jolie photo Brangelina’s stay in Namibia has sent interest in the African country through the roof, the country’s US ambassador has revealed.

"The Namibian embassy in Washington DC has been inundated with calls from the US media and individuals," since it was announced Hollywood hottie Angelina Jolie would give birth to Brad Pitt’s first child in the country, Hopelong Ipinge says.

"If Angelina gives birth in Namibia, she would have done for our tourism sector what our tourism board budget cannot do in a year,” he added.

"Never before have we had so much publicity. Angelina Jolie is not only a movie star, she is also the U.N. Goodwill Ambassador and this is the combination which makes her the draw card," he said.

"It would be an honour for Namibia to become the birthplace of the Pitts' first biological child," Iipinge said, the couple probably chose the remote country knowing it could offer them the privacy they craved.

"The publicity we are receiving is because of Angelina and Brad and not the paparazzi. The paparazzi will not come to Namibia on their own. They will only do so when following a celebrity. Angelina and Brad Pitt can boost tourism but the paparazzi cannot," Iipinge said.

Eight months pregnant Angelina is staying in the south African country with Brad and their two adopted children until she gives birth.
