The trip saw Brad turn from tough guy to tuft guy with a Mohican -- just like her lad Maddox .

Namibia, Africa :MOHAWK NATION! Brad Pitt, sported his new daring do of a mohawk (like father, like son) while playing catch with his 4-year-old Maddox this past Wednesday. Mum-to-be Angelina Jolie sat adopted daughter Zahara on her bump (pictured below) as she gives the girl a loving hug on holiday.

South Africa -- A local governor in Namibia said Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt told him they will have their baby in his country and are considering giving the child a Namibian name, a newspaper reported Sunday.

Samuel Sheefeni Nuuyoma, the governor of the Namibian province where the couple is staying at a heavily guarded lodge, said he had breakfast Friday with the two stars, according to The Sunday Times of South Africa.

He said Jolie had made those choices because "she loves Namibia."

Namibian immigration officials confirmed earlier this month that the couple and five other people, including two children, arrived in Walvis Bay on a chartered jet from Paris, prompting speculation their baby will be born in Africa.

The couple has been shielded from reporters by heavy security at a secluded beach resort near Walvis Bay, in an area where Namibia's desert sand dunes descend spectacularly to the sea.

But the Sunday Times carried what it billed as "exclusive" pictures of Jolie hugging 1-year-old Zahara and Pitt carrying sleeping Maddox, 4, to a sports utility vehicle. Both Pitt and Maddox sported matching haircuts.

It also had a photograph of a security official chasing a photographer along the beach.

The newspaper also said Pitt had managed to evade paparazzi and go riding on an all-terrain vehicle in the Namibian desert and the couple and the two children have visited various game reserves and wildlife foundations.

Nuuyoma said he wanted his guests to feel "at home and free."

"Namibia is a country where everyone has the right to freedom of movement, and they must not feel inhibited when they visit this beautiful country of ours," he was quoted as saying by the Sunday Times. Nuuyoma could not immediately be reached for more comment.
