(Newser) – Angelina Jolie's doctor says her twins may take a few more weeks to arrive. Dr. Michael Sussmann says the 33-year-old actress, who is in a hospital on the French Riviera, is doing fine. Asked when Jolie is expected to have her twins, Sussmann replied, "I can't give you a date. Let's say the birth will happen in the weeks to come."

Sussmann says Jolie checked into the hospital for observation, not because of any medical emergency. "Her hospitalization at this stage in her pregnancy is totally normal for a patient who had a Caesarean during her first pregnancy," Sussmann told a news conference today. "She is very well and she is OK." Sussmann wouldn't reveal the sex of the babies.
