Jolie-Pitt Healthy Twins Confirmed, Boy named Knox, Girl Vivienne
Early reports of two girls not right, but birthing of world’s most famous twins confirmed – By Jeffrey Jolson for Hollywood Today
NICE, France (RUSHPRNEWS) 7/14/08 – Dr. Michel Sussmann, the obstetrician who delivered twins to Angelina Jolie, finally broke silence to the media. He used French newspaper Nice-Matin and French news service AFP to report that Jolie had delivered a boy named Knox Leon and a girl named Vivienne Marcheline. They said Jolie gave birth shortly before 8 p.m. via cesarean section.
The babies we due in August, but twins are often born early and Jolie had a cesarean this time and on her last and only natural birth, to Shiloh.
That means half the six-kid Jolie-Pitt brood will always want to leave a room by a window, though that may change. There are unconfirmed rumors that the celebrity power couple want to adopt a Chinese baby, so there are few continents left until the Pitt-Jolie clan can form their on U.N.
Reports said each twin weighed about 5 pounds, not out of line for twins. Other reps for Jolie, Pitt and the hospital did not confirm the birth of the boy and girl. But the doctor has, and has more at stake career-wise than a publicist.
That news came after a wild day in the media. Extra said no birth had occurred. In Touch and us here at HT went with yes, there was a birth in spite of official denials to the contrary, but two girls. Hospital said the birth was earlier than 8 p.m. (Paris time), but reports of 7 a.m. is earlier as we had said, so expect something in the middle, if you are running the new babies star charts.
The doctor, who delivered the twins at Lenval Hospital in Nice, France, said the parents and new infants “are doing marvelously well.”
Jolie and Pitt’s growing brood now stands at six. The celebrity couple has three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, as well as a biological daughter, Shiloh.
