American actress Angelina Jolie has been congratulated by her ex husband Billy Bob Thornton on her pregnancy. Jolie recently confirmed that she and partner Brad Pitt are expecting twins later in the year, and Thornton, who had divorced her 5-years ago, is thrilled to bits with the news.
"I think she was always meant to be a mother in so many ways. I'm just so happy for her," Contactmusic quoted him as telling America's OK! magazine.
"I'm happy for the kids to have a mother like her and a father like him," he stated.
Besides praising her for her pregnancy, Thornton also praised Jolie for her goodwill and humanitarian efforts.
"I'm astounded that somebody has that kind of passion and that much energy for something that actually does affect people and help people out," he added.
Thornton had first met Jolie on the set of 1999 movie Pushing Tin and the pair married in 2000.
