Proud Jon Voight has sent his best wishes to his estranged daughter and her boyfriend Brad Pitt after learning the couple has become parents to baby SHILOH NOUVEL. Jolie, who turns 31 next weekend (04JUN06), gave birth to the baby girl on Saturday (27MAY06) in Namibia, where she, Pitt and their adopted children, ZAHARA and MADDOX, retreated to in April (06). And her father is among the first celebrities to congratulate the pair. He says, "This is wonderful. I am just so very, very happy for both of them. My love is always with them and I wish them all the happiness in the world. God bless them both." Voight and his daughter have been estranged for four years after he went public with his concerns for the actress' mental health. Meanwhile, Jolie's brother James Haven was reportedly pacing the corridors of the Cottage Hospital in Swakopmund, Namibia, where baby Shiloh was born. Pitt was at his girlfriend's bedside. And Pitt's brother DOUG has told American publication In Touch, "We just want them to relax and enjoy the whole thing. I just want him to be able to enjoy the experience as much as possible without too much pressure. It's going to be great for them." Even Namibian politicians have joined the well wishers - SAMUEL NUUYOMA, the Governor of the Erongo region, where Shiloh was born on Saturday, has issued a statement saying, "I wish Angelina and Brad good luck and a healthy life with their beautiful daughter Just like Angelina, this precious Namibian-born baby will be our ambassador."
