Angelina Jolie will give birth in France


Source

So the famous Angelia Jolie is going to give birth of her twins in France. She, Brad Pitt and their 4 children are enjoying their time in Nice, in an area facing forest and vineyard. She has admitted to a local clinic until the due date in August.

I wonder why she chooses France to have the babies, and whether she is entitled to enjoy the free medical system. Of course she is rich enough that she won't mind paying, but just curious whether any foreigner who seeks medical services in France could enjoy the free system. Also, will her twins automatically become French citizen and subsequently European citizen?

  1. No, her twins will not automatically get a French citizenship since none of them are French. The twins can get a French citizenship if they stay in France till 18 yrs old.

    She will only have free medical benefits if she practice some activities in France ie. work or company etc.

  3. Not true. Children are entitled French citizenship only if one of the parents is French which is not the case for them.
