She has never confirmed that she is pregnant, but on Tuesday, Angelina Jolie revealed during the middle of a conference on education policy in Iraq that she "felt kicking suddenly in the middle of the event."

It’s quite an admission from the expecting mother of four, who has quietly continued her busy life–happy not to acknowledge her growing baby bump. But on Tuesday, Jolie said she’s savoring this period–unexpected kicks and all–adding "It’s a very special time in our lives."

Angie is in Washington D.C. to promote education among Iraqi children. Specifically, she is there to launch her new initiative, Education Partnership for Children of Conflict.

Jolie brought her two sons, Maddox,6, and Pax,4, with her to the nation’s captiol. She will remain in D.C. for the rest of the week before re-joining Brad Pitt and their daughters Zahara,3, and Shiloh,1.
