Los Angeles, California - (Ass Mess): It's that all-too-familiar look of terror, disbelief and utter OMFG that men suddenly develop when their wives or partners announce ever so sweetly that darling, wouldn't it be m-a-r-v-e-l-l-o-u-s!
if we had another baby, just one more teensy weensy little bundle of joy to give us something to do in between orgasms...
And the latest male in Hollywood to show the tell-tale signs of broody mate syndrome is Brad Pitt, who first developed that nervous tic in the side of his face after Angelina Jolie came up with the humor-defying name of Shiloh Novel for their little daughter last year.
Movie pals have long suspected that Brad deserves a medal for ever putting up with wacko Angelina in the first place although the couple's adoption of orphans has been widely praised.
But knowing when a guy has reached his saturation limit is one of the keys to a happy and lasting relationship.
"It's like she's feeding her attention-deficit chasm with all these orphans," a Hollywood source said today.
"Give the guy a break and stop piling on the hormones. Or expect to see him heavily engaged in filming epics that means being away for at least six months at a time."
Jolie is 39.
