What's it like to be Angelina Jolie and very, very pregnant? On April 8, while on a panel discussing education in Iraq at the Council on Foreign Relations, she got some unsolicited feedback. "I felt kicking suddenly!" says Jolie, 32. With kids Maddox, 6, and Pax, 4, in tow, Jolie hit the nation's capital to work on her initiative, Educational Partnership for Children of Conflict, and present a Vital Voices Global Leadership Award to journalist Mariane Pearl. Exhausting? Maybe, but Jolie says she, Brad and their clan have no plans to slow down: "It's a very special time in our lives."
