LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Has the Brangelina brood increased by two? There were conflicting reports Friday about the impending birth of Angelina Jolie's twins.
"Entertainment Tonight" reported that the actress had given birth in France. The story, posted on the TV show's Web site, cited an "source close to Jolie." People magazine followed with a story quoting "a rep for the actress" as saying that Jolie "has not given birth."
Representatives for Jolie and her companion, Brad Pitt, did not respond to phone and e-mail requests from The Associated Press.
The couple known as Brangelina has four other children: 6-year-old Maddox, 4-year-old Pax and 3-year-old Zahara, who are adopted, and 2-year-old Shiloh.
The pair recently moved into the Miraval Estate villa in the French hamlet of Correns, in the Provence region, according to the mayor and the inn's owner.
"They are people who I hope will live normally here," Mayor Michael Latz told The Associated Press.
Security guards were blocking the gates to the estate Friday, while a postal truck and other maintenance vehicles regularly passed in and out.
Onno Stijl, owner of the L'Auberge du Parc inn, said it was a good thing they were moving in and could help business. He said he gets his wine from the estate's vineyards.
"It's a couple living here now like everyone," he said by telephone.
The area, he said, "is a bit isolated but that gives it a certain ... privacy."
According to its Web site, the Miraval estate dates from pre-Roman times. It includes fountains, aqueducts, moats, a lake and vineyards that produce an organic wine distributed worldwide.
Pitt and Jolie may be Miraval's first movie stars in residence, but Miraval has seen its share of rock stars. The estate includes a studio which has hosted the likes of Sting, the Cranberries and Pink Floyd, who recorded tracks for "The Wall" album there.

Update: Rep Says Untrue.
Speculation has been rife this afternoon that the Tomb Raider star had given birth in France.
But her rep told people.com the rumours are untrue.
The rep said: "Angelina has not given birth. She is fine, enjoying her home and her family in France."
Several news sites were reporting the birth had taken place and even revealed the names Angelina and BRAD PITT had chosen for the babies.
DUSTIN HOFFMAN let slip on the rep carpet at the Cannes Film Festival that the actress was due to give birth in August.
