The actress' doctors convinced her to give birth by Caesarean section yesterday due to a minor complication, according to American publication In Touch.
But insiders insist the birth will be "routine" when the 30-year-old becomes a natural mother for the first time later today.
Jolie and her boyfriend Brad Pitt along with their adopted children Maddox and Zahara have been holed up in a compound at Namibia's Burning Shore resort for almost two months awaiting the arrival of their first child together.
The baby will be born in a local hospital, according to the In Touch insider after Jolie was advised against giving birth naturally, as planned, at her Swakopmund resort home late last week.
Earlier too Jolie had said that if the baby didn’t make it into the world by June 3, she will have labour induced at the beginning of next month.

Rossdale then took the elevator to the maternity ward. "Gwen was wearing her signature red lipstick and looked so excited," the onlooker added.

Bill Gerber, the producer of last year's The Dukes of Hazzard, tells PEOPLE in its new issue that he is working on a prequel to the movie that brought Simpson (and her rear view) film fame Â and he thinks Cavallari, 19, would fill out those Daisy Duke shorts quite nicely.
"She's at the top of the list," he says. "I like her innocence and her beauty."
Why not just stick with Simpson, 25? "It's a prequel, like Batman (Begins)," he says. "We're going for a whole new cast."
