Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt

Despite rampant reports to the contrary, the Jolie-Pitt offspring count is at four, and holding.

Angelina Jolie's manager, Geyer Kosinski, told E! News that stories of the actress and Brad Pitt welcoming twin daughters this week are "not true," meaning the most-watched baby bump in the world has yet to pop.

Pitt manager Cynthia Pett-Dante also was in full denial mode, labeling the birth reports premature. "It is a rumor," she said.

Similarly, a source close to the family in France told E! News that Jolie was still at her Provence home sans newborns as of Friday morning.

The stork non-delivery puts the kibosh on voraciously circulating and rather detailed reports, led by Entertainment Tonight, that Isla Marcheline and Amelie Jane arrived via C-section at a Catholic clinic in Aix-en-Provence.

By Friday evening, ET had removed the story from its website.

While Jolie has previously claimed that she wants to give birth in her late mother's home country, she has yet to confirm the genders of her pending progeny, let alone whether they will in fact be named in honor of their grandparents (Jolie's late mother is Marcheline; Pitt's is Jane).

Regardless, whenever the genetically blessed babes make their debut, they will mark kids No. 5 and 6 for the Jolie-Pitt brood, joining Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, who turned 2 just this week.

Jolie left it up to Kung Fu Panda costars Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman to serve as advance men for the baby news while promoting the cartoon at Cannes earlier this month. Black confirmed that Jolie and Pitt were expecting twins, while Hoffman may prove himself as potentially reliable as Deep Throat, claiming the babies weren't due until Aug. 19.

Last weekend, word broke that that the 32-year-old Oscar winner and Pitt, 44, were moving into the 1,000-acre, $60 million Chateua Mirval, complete with 35 bedrooms, a vineyard and a moat, just outside Aix-en-Provence. The family relocated to France back in April in anticipation of the baby-delivering.

All week long, delivery trucks have been pulling up to estate, bringing furniture and toys for the kids, including a delivery of ATVs for Pax and Maddox.

In other words, the babies may not have arrived, but the nesting is in full effect.
