When Brad Pitt declared that he and Angelina Jolie wanted a “soccer team” of kids, he wasn’t kidding. Earlier this year, in between stories that Brangelina were on the brink of splitting up, tabloids ran photos of Angelina sporting what appeared to be a small baby bump and reported that she had changed her diet to a more pregnancy-friendly one. However, whispers in the gossip world say that Angelina may be having infertility problems and has already suffered through one miscarriage earlier this year.
“It’s been really hard for Angie lately, especially because of all the speculation that she is pregnant,” says a source close to the couple.
“Every time she sees another headline like that it just adds to her grief that she can’t seem to conceive. She got pregnant so quickly with Shiloh and the twins that when she decided she wanted another child, she thought it would happen immediately.
“The early miscarriage was just awful for her and since then, she hasn’t fallen pregnant – now she’s worried she never will again.”
Her obstetrician allegedly assures Angelina she is fit to conceive again, but after months of trying, she has become increasingly worried. She has changed her diet from eating junk food and ready-meals to healthier ones and has started to take vitamins. She also told Pitt to stop drinking. Angelina is now said to be considering fertility treatment, despite her aversion to medical intervention.
Despite the fact that we are media whores, we do have sympathy for Jolie. I hope she finds a healthy option.
