Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt welcomed Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt into the world on Saturday, May 27, 2006 (just last night).  Congratulations to the new parents. They must be excited and exhausted.

Jolie and Pitt had gone to great lengths to avoid unwelcome curiosity, moving to a country unhampered by freedom of the press.  Namibia 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.

However many people were curious, and curiosity prevailed.  Within hours the news had spread around the globe.  People were reading about the birth in Los Angeles, Bangkok, the United Kingdom, Russia,   Canada,  Asia, 

 Australia,  the Middle East,  India,  South AfricaNamibia, and just about everywhere.
