The Brangelina Horde Boards a Whirlybird

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took daughter Zahara for a helicopter ride around France on Saturday. The family is ensconced in Microsoft founder Paul Allen’s villa at St. Jean Cap Ferrat, awaiting the birth of their twins.

Global goddess Angelina wants to squirt out the kids in France to honor the French-Canadian ancestry of her deceased mother, Marcheline Bertrand. Yes, Canada isn’t in France. But Canada doesn’t have enough of the snotty Gallic attitude in which Brad and Angie want the kids to be steeped.

The next day, the entire family (Maddox, Pax, Zahara and Shiloh) spent the day at U2 frontman Bono’s waterfront home in Eze, France. The happy family was photographed beachcombing with U2 guitarist the Edge.

Villagers say that the brood has been nothing out of the ordinary.

“They’re doing everything you and I might be doing. Eating, taking naps and swimming in the pool,” said a colorful local, while likely grimacing, taking sharp intakes of a bitter cigarette and resenting the question asked of him in very poor French.
