Brad and Angie are Moving Here.

Brangelina just bought a house here in Louisiana (New Orleans).

Hollywood’s favorite nomadic couple is finally settling down – far away from Tinseltown.
Angelina Jolie tells Us Weekly that she and Brad Pitt have moved their three children, Maddox, 5, Zahara, 2, and 7-month-old Shiloh, to New Orleans.

“We love it there,” Jolie told Us at the Golden Globe Awards after confirming the move. “The kids are going to go to school there. We're really looking forward to it.”

On January 12, just a day after moving to The Big Easy, Jolie was already mixing with the locals at restaurant Angeli on Decatur.

Diner Jorge Palacios tells Us the star – clad in an ivory dress over white pants – blended right in: “No one at my table believed me when I told them it was her.” And that’s just what she wants.

While Pitt works (he’s filming The Curious Case of Benjamin Button locally), sources say Jolie, 31, plans on being a low-key mom in the $3.5 million, six-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath mansion the pair recently purchased (their fourth house) in the French Quarter.

“She’s interested in befriending normal moms so she can do things with the kids,” says a Jolie source.

And who can forget their humanitarian efforts? “Angelina has asked for places she can do charity work,” says the source, who adds that Jolie had inquired about a school for disadvantaged youth. And construction is set to start this month on the 20 environment-friendly homes Pitt, 43, jointly commissioned with Global Green USA.

The couple also hope to raise awareness for the region, which was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Says the source, “They think it is important to be there right now.”

Well if Brangelina can bring more attention to the region to make a difference, I think its a good thing them being here. A lot of progress has been made in the city of New Orleans since Katrina, but there is still a very long long way to go.


  1. Well I sure hope he can now tell the difference between J-Hud and Timika Gray.
