Actress Angelina Jolie has confirmed that she and Brad Pitt are expecting twins — which will bring the Pitt-Jolie brood to a grand total of six on or around her due date of August 19.

During an interview held in Cannes, France, on Wednesday, Jolie confirmed her pregnancy to TODAY's Natalie Morales. The interview was given alongside actor Jack Black, Jolie's co-star in the new Dreamworks animated film, “Kung Fu Panda.”

In a separate interview at Cannes, actor Dustin Hoffman — also Jolie's "Kung Fu Panda" co-star — revealed to Morales that Jolie's due date is August 19.

Black was the first to let the twins news slip. Jolie confirmed this, and added that she was due “in a few months.”

Morales observed that Jolie seemed “relaxed,” and she agreed. “I'm very happy,” said the Oscar-winning actress. “Like most women, I love being pregnant.” She added that pregnancy makes “you feel like more like a woman than you've ever felt. You just feel like everything about your body is there for your baby.”

Jolie added that she would “possibly” stay in France to deliver the babies, and was keeping the sex of the babies private.

The 33-year-old is no stranger to motherhood: She and Pitt have three adopted children, Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, and Zahara, 3, as well as a biological daughter, Shiloh, who will turn 2 at the end of May.

Jolie also offered a broader view of her and Pitt's parenting style: The couple are making sure that all their kids are aware of their diverse backgrounds. “They have a real pride in who they are,” she said. “Our daughter's very proud that she's African. And our boys are very proud that they're Asian — they know about their country … down to their food or their flags or their music.”

And she's also already thinking about what kinds of people her kids will grow up to be: “We keep nothing from them when we take them around the world, so they're more resilient than we are as adults.”

Jolie added that her curious kids “ask great questions about life. They ask questions about war that are poignant and spot-on because they’re the questions we should all be asking ourselves.”

A more glamorous ‘Brady Bunch’
In the Cannes interview, Black — whose wife is also expecting — spilled the beans that Jolie was having twins, but she let him get away with it. “You’re gonna have as many as [the] ‘Brady Bunch’ when you have these,” he joked.

“It’s confirmed? Is it two?” Morales asked.

“Yeah, yeah, we’ve confirmed that already,” Jolie responded. “Well, Jack’s just confirmed it, actually.”

“Is that true?” Black said jokingly.

“Yeah, you did,” Jolie replied.

Banter aside, the two parents-to-be spent the rest of the interview with Morales discussing "Kung Fu Panda," which hits theaters June 6.
