Angelina' Shhh, only Katrina

New York, April 21 (AP): The whole world wants to know about the rumours of a “Brangelina” wedding in Namibia, not to mention the chances that the first biological child of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie might be born in Africa next month.

But all the publicity-shy actor wants to talk about is his new architecture project ' a design competition to encourage eco-friendly rebuilding in areas of New Orleans hardest hit by hurricane Katrina.

Would Pitt care to comment about imminent fatherhood'

“Absolutely not,” he laughs. But he will go as far as to say he is “doing well” and has had a warm welcome in Namibia, where local authorities are doing their best to keep the paparazzi away from Pitt, his heavily pregnant partner Jolie and her two adopted children Maddox and Zahara since they arrived there earlier this month.

“Namibia’s just a country we’re very fond of. It’s a beautiful land and hospitable people and a place that we want to be for the time being,” he said Thursday in a telephone interview from the southern African nation.

Pitt was much more forthcoming on his love of architecture and his plans to sponsor a design competition and lead its jury. “Our goal is to kick off the rebuilding effort. It’s certainly long overdue and I can only go from the reports that we get... that it’s behind, absolutely. People are frustrated,” Pitt said.

“We could possibly build something that was better and took into account the historical traditions of the city and the voices of the people and turn this into some kind of good,” he added.

Pitt has not visited New Orleans since Katrina struck on August 29.
