Angelina Jolie to build home for in-laws

2013-05-28 21:16
Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie is reportedly set to move her in-laws into her home.

The 37-year-old actress and her fiancé Brad Pitt want the actor's parents, Jane and William, to join them at their Chateau Miraval estate in Provence, France, after the family bonded following Angelina's decision to have a double mastectomy to prevent her from getting breast cancer.

Jane has been a rock to Angelina throughout the ordeal and now the couple want Brad's parents to be nearer them and their six children - Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six and four-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne.

A source told the new issue of Britain's Grazia magazine: "Angelina's illness has brought the whole family closer together. Jane has really been there for Ange.

"They never used to spend a lot of time together, but now Ange is really keen to have her close by (...) The shock of Angelina's experience has really forced them to bond."

'They could be staying for a while'

Brad, 49, and Angelina - who are believed to be getting married in the summer - have started renovating their abode to cater for Brad's parents and want to create them a permanent, private living space so they can come and go as they please from their home in the US.

The source said: "Work has started on the beautiful dovecote outbuilding - it's like a little cottage. Brad is keen to make it as comfortable as possible, as they could be staying for a while."

Angelina - who lost her mother Marcheline Bertrand, to Ovarian cancer six years ago - was identified as carrying the BRCA1 cancer gene herself, giving her an 87& chance of developing breast cancer and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer.

At the weekend, the actress lost her beloved aunt Debbie Martin, 61, after she lost her battle with breast cancer and passed away at Palomar Hospital in Escondido, California on Sunday morning.
