angelina jolie, brad pitt

Oh, to be young and in love and expecting your fifth child. Which, theoretically, is made all the sweeter if you're also rich and famous and chilling out at your billionaire friend's villa in the south of France.

Since hunkering down at the Riviera estate of Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen last week, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and their existing brood have been living a life of leisure—pain au chocolat in the morning, sunning poolside all day, high tea in the afternoon, CNN at night...

A source on that side of the Atlantic exclusively tells E! News that the Jolie-Pitt clan spent Thursday—a public holiday in France marking the country's Labor Day, known as Fête du Travail—relaxing by the pool while they wait for the usual jet lag to wear off.

"They've been getting up early and having pain au chocolat and croissant and muffins for breakfast, and the kids have been watching cartoons. Then late morning they've been going in the pool, which is heated, so the kids love it," the Brangie insider said.

"[Maddox] is a really good little swimmer but the rest all need arm bands, and Brad's been getting in the pool with the kids and throwing them up in the air and giving them rides on his back, while Angie has been laughing and watching from a sun-lounger."

The kids have been enjoying a "high tea" at around 5 p.m.—their dinnertime—of homemade chicken fingers, veggies and fruit smoothies, according to E!'s source. After which comes a little more cartoon watching, a bath and story-time with mom and dad. Then it's lights out at 7 p.m.

"Brad and Angelina are then exhausted and have been watching CNN news and then catching a film on cable, and then they've been going to bed by 9 p.m. themselves," the source said.

"They're really serious about getting some quality family time together and having some fun like a normal family."

Pitt, Jolie, Maddox and Pax are also said to be having regular French lessons with a tutor who comes to the house. Whether the family is there long enough to start schooling little Shiloh and Zahara in the native tongue, as well, remains to be seen, but we know the Jolie-Pitts are going to be in the neighborhood at least until they welcome their newest addition this summer.

In the meantime, Jolie's got a pair of films opening at Cannes, and Pitt's going to go villa hunting.
