Brad & Angelina Hold a Press Conference

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made their first public appearance together today since the arrival of Shiloh.

At a press conference in Namibia, the couple thanked the African country for helping them maintain privacy before, during and after the birth of their baby.

"We have been able to have a very special, peaceful time for our family here, exploring your country and more importantly helping with the delivery of our daughter, Shiloh," Brad told a news conference for local journalists at a hotel in the town of Swakopmund, according to the AP. "So for that we are eternally grateful."

Angie, who gave birth on May 27, was wearing a long black dress. She told the press that she choose Namibia as the place of Shiloh's birth because it's a peaceful place to spend time with her children.

"We both had traveled to Africa and loved this part of the world," said the new mom.

They will stay in the country for a few more weeks before going to Los Angeles where Brad will start shooting Ocean's Thirteen.
