She has not been photographed out and about since she shot her movie Maleficent last year. The film also stars daughter Shiloh.

Reports suggest the actress is lying low because of her impending pregnancy.

A source told US Star magazine that Jolie had been dealing with a bout of morning sickness and as a result didn't want to "draw attention to herself in public".

"She's focusing on the other children right now, trying to prepare them for the new baby," the source said.

The news should not come as a surprise - Jolie reportedly hinted for years that she wanted to expand her family.

"Angelina has been talking about having another child for years now," the source said.

"But Brad kept putting his foot down because of their intense schedules and chaotic lifestyle."

Pitt and Jolie - who already have six children all under the age of 11 - are yet to confirm or deny the rumours.
