Welcome Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline!

Welcome Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie welcomed healthy twins on Saturday night at Fondation Lenval hospital in Nice, France–a boy named Knox Leon Jolie-Pitt and a girl named Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt.

Vivienne is the French form of Vivian, which reflects her place of birth. Her middle name was chosen as a nod to her late grandmother, Marcheline Bertrand (Angelina‘s mother who lost a battle with ovarian cancer). Knox was the middle name of Brad‘s maternal grandfather (His mom was James Etta Hillhouse, her father was Hal Knox Hillhouse). Leon is the name of Angelina‘s great-great grandfather.

To add fuel to the fire, Brad and Angelina‘s attorneys at law firm, Lavely & Singer, snatched up all domain name combinations of the twins’ names mere hours ago. Here are all of the ones taken so far:

Check out the screenshots below of the domain names taken so far. Brad and Angie have a smart team of lawyers behind them!

UPDATE: People has confirmed the report!

    They did NOT announce the news via those domain names.

    It is the FANS who did the investigative work and discovered those names as being registered.

    The purpose of taking up those domain names is to PREVENT scupulous people from exploiting other people’s names for financial gains.

    Angelina Jolie gives birth to twins: report
    2 hours ago
    NICE, France (AFP) — Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has given birth to healthy twins, a girl and a boy, in the French Riviera maternity clinic she has checked into, the Nice-Matin newspaper reported Sunday quoting her gynaecologist.
    The twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, were born shortly before 8:00 pm (1800 GMT) on Saturday, the paper said quoting gynaecologist Michel Sussmann.
    Jolie is fine after having a Caesarian section, it added.
    Knox Leon was reported to weigh 2.27 kilogrammes (five pounds) and Vivienne Marcheline 2.28 kilogrammes (5.02 pounds).
    The babies’ first photograph was sold to a US paper for 11 million dollars (6.9 million euros), Nice-Matin said, adding that the money would be given to a humanitarian cause.
    A source close to the clinic had said earlier the birth was expected in mid-August.
    The twins brought 33-year-old Jolie’s brood with partner Brad Pitt to six.
    Pitt was seen entering Nice’s Santa Maria clinic, part of the Lanval hospital on the seafront Promenade des Anglais, on July 2 with at least two of their children.
    A spokesperson for Lanval could not immediately be reached Sunday morning to confirm the report.
    Jolie and Pitt, 44, have been the subject of celebrity gossip fascination since they met on the set of their 2005 film “Mr and Mrs Smith.”
    Dubbed “Brangelina,” they have adopted three children: Maddox, six, born in Cambodia; four-year-old Pax, born in Vietnam; and Zahara, three, born in Ethiopia.
    They also had a biological child, Shiloh, born in Namibia, in May 2006.
    The pair, who frequently top magazine lists of the world’s most beautiful people or couple, set up home in May in a chateau they rented from an American acquaintaince in France’s Provence region.

    Oh, yay for them having a boy! (If it’s true, of course.) Not that girls aren’t just as wonderful, but with such genetic perfection from both mommy and daddy, you’d like to see as many different varieties as they can produce!

    Congrats (if so) to the whole family!

  • julia

    I knew it..
    I woke Up This Morning and had a a very strong feeling Today was the DAY!

    Congratulaions To The Jolie-Pitts, and All That Love Them…

  • bla blah

    OMG!!! CONGRATS!! It has to be true if the Hospital’s website is reporting it!!!

  • Frenchy

    repost from last thread….

    Where are the official confirmations.

    wtf is going on????? i can;t believe all of you. Where did the hosptial spokes person or brad & Angelina’s rep say that she gave birth? Where? Sho me the link to the actual statement? jare you are certifiable this week,, LOL. INtouch? What has Intouch have got to do with Brad & Angelina? They are not even a real magazine. Why would they know anything? there are people reporting and using the namess of two tabloids that no the least of anything? Why would anyone quote them? Why aren’t you looking for CNN reports? Why InTouch and US Weekly or JJB or that loser link that someone posted? Why? Why aren’t you posting links from news websites? Why are you posting artciles from comic books? Why can’t you figure out by those names that this isn’t true? Jess Cagle who is People maazine/s managing editor on television this morning discussing the Jolie-Pitt twins pictures and guess what? People magazine does not have the rights. It looks like no one will have them. more about that in a few……

  • sonia

    HA HA HA HA i can’t keep up, this is really fun, omg, now even i am getting excited. congrats jp, thanks jj, j/p have the best fans in the world.

  • nike

    It is 6 am in Paris.

  • a brange fan

    Someone on another site said Knox is the name of Brad’s maternal grandfather. Is that true?

    Also, Angie gave a hint she was having at least one boy during her KFP interview with Extra. She said “two of my sons are Asian”. Extra always treat Brad and Angie well, so I think that was their way of giving Extra a little hint that they never gave to the other entertainment shows.

  • vickifromtexas

    well this news lends some credence to the story. i hope this is true.


    Congrats to them, they are smart for buying all the domain so no sicko or weirdo will have make a dedicating website about their kids

    Both are cool names . Knox matches with pax and maddox. Viv is so cute. But I will wait for the conformation to belive it,

  • Yawn

  • the shiznack

    if its true congrats and all the best

  • ….

    The names are ok….not a huge fan of them, but it’s great they are offer some familial significance (Knox and Marcheline). That said, on the scale of celeb names, there’s no way these are worst than Hazel and Phinneas. Julia still holds the crown of worst names ever LOL

  • Danz

    awesome thanks jj

  • b



    the whole twin girls are made up buy stupid rag mags, what do they know anyways

  • lady t

    I haven’t posted in awhile but I am not gonna sleep well tonight. If true, I pray all is well with momma and babies. God bless the Jolie-Pitts! =)

  • nike

    May be they will call the kid V and Lee

  • julia

    The names are adorable and I’m sure in some PRIVATE Way, very meaningful to Brad and Angie..

    …….Even Better that Famous doesn’t Like Them.. Now I know They are UBER-cool! :wink:

  • cool

    If it’s true congrats. Vivienne (said the French way and not Vivian) is very cute, Knox sounds like Knoxville.

    infamous, no actually suri is the worst name . From where one of my friends is suri means toad. They use it for uglyness.

  • sharon

    Another thread, thanks jj. Again Congratulations to Brad and Angie. I am so excited.


    Oh I forgot to add that I love the names…if these are the names. One is clearly a boys name. So that would mean there is a little Brad. LOL. So cute. Their whole family is just beautiful. I wish them all the best.
