Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie has developed a form of diabetes that is common among pregnant women.
Thesun.co.uk reports that Jolie is expecting twins with her partner Brad Pitt and she needs bigger shoes because her legs are swollen. She is also getting nauseous.
A source said: "She has gestational diabetes. She found out about a month ago. She's been seeing a nutritionist about it frequently."
This condition can be treated with diet and exercise and is curable. But the risk includes the development of Type 2 diabetes. Jolie also seems to be getting tired often while travelling to Texas where Pitt is filming. The source added: "She's sick and irritable and feels heavy and weak."
