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:

I don’t get what it means to take the domains?

Thanks for the updates Just Jared. Cute Names. Time will tell. That’s my motto and I am sticking with it. Best wishes to AJ and healthy delivery of the twins. Peace to all.

i’m so glad she had a girl and a BOY! if it’s true, that is…

CONGRATULATIONS BRAD & ANGIE
The name Vivienne is beautiful….Knox is kinda ehh for me but I thought the same of Shiloh and now I couldn’t imagine her as anything else,lol!
So happy for them :-) :-) :-) :-)
It seems mom and babies are doing well so thank heavens for that. I hope God smiles down on them and blesses them with a long, healthy, and happy life! That goes for the entire Jolie-Pitt family!!!

Jared, where are these “confirmed reports” coming from? So far we’ve had indications, but no confirmations.

===================================
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.

Thanks Jared!

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.
