Angelina Jolie Twins Conceived Through In Vitro?

Angelina Jolie Twins Conceived Through In Vitro?

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt turned to fertility treatments to conceive twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, reports Us Weekly.

“They conceived through in vitro fertilization,” a source tells the mag. “They both desperately wanted more babies soon.”

Apparently the chance of having fraternal twins at Angelina‘s age (33) naturally is under 1 percent; with in vitro, the chances are 25 percent.

Continues the source, “[Angie did it so] she wouldn’t have to deal with the stress of trying to get pregnant. She could just knock it out.”

FYI: In vitro fertilization costs around $12,000 per procedure.

    Ok…I had in-vitro because I CANNOT have children on my own. I am so grateful and blessed that I ended up with beautiful, healthy twin daughters. However, I would NEVER just pay to do in-vitro just to have another child if I didn’t have to. It’s not an easy process. It’s painful and never 100%. Leave the in-vitro for the people that need it, not the women that can get pregnant on their own.

    Seems like to me this is just another way she is throwing around her money to make things happen the way she wants them to happen. I will applaud her for adopting children that needed homes, however on the flip side there are thousands of women that desperately want children that can’t have them. How about giving some of these women who can’t afford in-vitro the option before just doing it because you can.

  • Louise

    This is such a lame story. Since when is invitro a stressfree procedure? It’s very difficult on the mind and body. Also isn’t just having sex quicker and more convienent than having to go to all of those appointments for treatment? Not to mention it can take several tries for it to work?

    Why do you believe US weekly??? They made it up!! They have no proof, they have unnamed sources?? Please, people stop judging based on bullshit from US Weekly!!!

  • Lauren

    Whoa . . . I just read all these comments. I can’t believe people get so worked up over celebrities.

    Anyway, who cares what they did. Does it really matter?

    IF they did IVF that doesn’t mean they never have sex.

    Just because Angelina said before she wouldn’t want to have bio kids because of the other kids sitting in an orphanage and now has 3 bio kids, it doesn’t mean she lied. It means she changed her mind.

    What does Jennifer Aniston not having any kids have anything to do with anything? Maybe she didn’t want kids when she was with Brad. Maybe when she wanted them, they were already on the rocks.

    We don’t know these people. We don’t know what’s going on in their lives and we never will.

    Angelina Jolie: Being Pregnant with Twins Was a ‘Shock’

    Angelina Jolie has talked candidly about her desire to continue expanding her family with Brad Pitt. But when the actress found out she was pregnant with twins, well, even she was taken aback.


    “We weren’t expecting twins,” Jolie, 33, tells Entertainment Weekly in a new interview. “So it did shock us, and we jumped to six [children] quickly. But we like a challenge.”

    With a house full of kids, Jolie says she needs help – so it’s a good thing there’s family around to pitch in. “[Brad's] mom and dad are on standby to come out and help,” she says.

    But the real focus, Jolie says, is making sure their other children – Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2 – feel included when their new siblings are born. Says the actress: “They’re old enough to feel included to change diapers themselves, to feed bottles themselves, like if I pump into a bottle. We’re trying to find ways where it can be a fun group thing … Everybody gets special time so we can make sure we know where they’re at.”

    As for how she’s handling being pregnant with twins, the actress tells EW she’s taking it easy and letting Pitt handle all the heavy lifting – literally. “We’ve worked out a system where Brad just lifts [the kids] to me every time they want to come up,” she says. “I just don’t bend down. I’ll scream, ‘Honey!’ and he’ll come running and lift them up.”

    And pregnancy has other benefits as well. “It’s great for the sex life,” she says. “It just makes you a lot more creative. So you have fun, and as a woman you’re just so round and full.”

  • why???

    Here’s a thought!!

    If Brad is open to invitro, why didnt he do it with Jennifer Aniston???

    Angie is young and fertile, she doesnt need to do invitro.

    Its the old and infertile Aniston who needs to do invitro to get pregnant!!! And yet Brad didnt do it with her.

  • bored and eccentric

    in vitro makes sense because of course they’d want a twin boy and a twin girl to complete their bizzare way of collecting children as if they were some exotic pets. by the way, six kids in less than four years, and it will all be so fucked up as soon as they grow tired of their eccentric life and split.

  • wobbler30

    I watched and episode of Denise Richards reality show where she took ont he tabloids. She had an interview with one of those journalists fromthe rags. She actually broke down and asked the lady why they say things that are not true and she was one of the coldest bitches I have ever seen. I don’t really care about Denise but I was sympathizing with her efforts to understand why people write vicious lies for monetary gain.She was so upset and called the lady a c###.
    Why bother talking to those idiots because they are gonna get theirs.
    Just as Angie said I live my life and don’t worry about the rest.It seems Brad worries a bit much about what they say. As she also stated we walk in different worlds together.

  • no thanx!

    Well well..The Us Magazine blog on this cover story is already up to 215 ugly, vile posts and counting. That’s why I hate this tabloid magazine. Brad, Angie, and Jennifer are their life support at this point.

    Wow someone is out to get Angelina.

    God job US Lies Weekly magazine, what a great way to make money. Don’t mention the IVF when they got it, mention it after the babies are born and you have no chance of profiting off of their pictures. It doesn’t even matter if the story is true or not it would just be a new lie in the long list of lies about Angelina.

    And of course as soon as Brad’s publicist went on hiatus, Brad also gets smeared. Oh the timing is too precious. Gotta give it to Janice Min though, sales are down so what do you do become partners with a pro Brad and Angelina blog that gets a lot of hits. Plant the story of IVF with said blog and watch it spread across the web. Again the story doesn’t have to be true, but we all know the money will come and Janice Min can breathe again. Maybe she can keep her job for antoher day. ALL’S FAIR IN THE TABLOID WARS.

    Tabloids Wars: The Holy Twins In Vitro!

    Safe to say Us Weekly was never in the running for the first exclusive shots of the Holy Jolie Twins. As such, in a bold pre-emptive move, Janice Min and her clever gossips are trying to squeeze as much money out of the twins-obsessed public as they can, in advance of those highly anticipated photos sure to annihilate newsstand sales for everyone else – likely in People Magazine or OK!, both bitter rivals of Us Weekly.

    But just because Us isn’t getting the pictures, doesn’t mean they don’t have a better story. Take a look at the latest cover – totally explosive!

    The magazine cites( Jennifer Aniston’s friends) inside sources who claim that Knox and Vivienne were conceived in vitro because Brad and Angelina were “too impatient”. There’s also something about Brad pushing Angie for biological babies instead of adopted ones, and more salacious smutty details to cure your summer blues.

    How will the Pitts fight back? And will this expedite the deal for those photos? Two little faces to obliterate the In Vitro affair?

    This is the sh*t we live for.

  • pinkrose

    That’s it!! I’m officially giving no more hits to Jared. You make your living from perpetuating lies. Even if you do not initiate the lies, you perpetuate them. A bell rung cannnot be unrung. Once gossip blogs tarnish someone’s reputaion it is out there forever. (NOT THAT INTRO IS A BAD THING. IT IS REALLY A MIRACLE FOR MANY). But it’s not right and it’s not fair to print lies deliberately and I am not going to be a contributor to the success of blogs that tarnish people’s reputation and spread lies knowingly. Saying the source is US Weekly is not good enough. Your ass should get sued too!!!

  • richard peterson

    make love all day = sex hot

  • Mia

    To the hate-filled bloggers, leave Jennifer Aniston out of any future details of the Jolie-Pitt family. Are you Angelina and Brad’s conscience speaking by projecting upon Jennifer Aniston?

    The more kids they adopt or have delivered C-section, the sooner your bubble will burst regarding the “ideal couple” or “ideal family”. Even Mia Farrow (first to adopt children from around the world to create a huge family) had a “chaotic and unhealthy” family lifestyle.

    Why would anyone doubt the twins were created through invitro fertilisation as well as their first biological daughter?

    You people are living in your fantasies….they are not royalty.

  • briseis

    It is hilarious how fanistons insisted that Brad and Angie were having sex during shooting of MMS when both denied an affair. But now that are obviously having sex (witness Shiloh), and per Angie, EVEN DURING PREGNANCY, now the fanistons say that they are NOT having sex and opted for a turkey baster to have the twins. I don’t remember this kind of covers for JLo or Julia Roberts, both of whom had their first babies as twins and older than Angie. Hmmm, critical thinking really is a lost skill/knowledge.

  • old lady

    I don’t believe it. She can easily get pregnant without artificial methods.

    Again. Angelina’s fault and all her fault.

    It seems to some people Brad never exists in this relationship and never was one of 2 persons who made the decision — mind you, even for an In Vitro, you still need sperm (If — the big IF — they chose to do In Vitro — but I’d never believe it).

  • bambamswife

    Hasn’t anybody noticed all the twins the celebrities are having these days. So what if they did in vetro fertilization. Who cares? I still can’t stomach Jolie anyway.

    she was unnaturally too thin to conceive in the first place. typical of them, as they are baby collectors.

    I was just on Paris Match’s website and they have something about Brad and Angie in their new issue, but I’m not sure if it’s an article, a blurb or just pictures. It says “Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt: a great family”. I’m going to try and find it this weekend. BBL

  • bet betty

    Hay. Brad can sue the fcuking trash mag if he cares his golden image.

    Oops. Of course he won’t sue, it’s not his image. He is off the hook. Again as usual.

  • Paige

    Brad’s sister Julie has twin girls. I have not heard anyone talk about that.

  • Tara

    Guess Angelina and Brad need their armchair protectors to come out in defense of something that is most likely fact?

    Those of a certain age thought Rock Hudson would be the ultimate lover and it turned out he had been a closet gay since he was a young man. You nor I know what is going on behind the closed front door nor the bedroom door of Angelina and Brad. Hot, passionate sex?….quite possibly NOT! A grounded mind can only imagine the agreements they have together and the #1 Fact remains they are professional ACTORS on the world stage. A #2 Fact is that Angelina Jolie is bi-sexual so it is anyone’s guess as to when she will get bored and seek out a female lover again. Maybe that’s why they’ve been castle hunting in France….just maybe!

    I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before the lawyers contact the US people to either cease and desist or pay the cost of their terrible gossipmongering. If they can’t provide any proof, they would be in a host of trouble.

    It’s okay if Jared posts this. It’s his blog. We either ignore or fight. Don’t post if you’re not comfortable with the subject.

  • kelly

    So? If they did in-vitro, it is no one’s business but their own. It doesn’t make the babies any less wanted and loved. Tabloid trash.

    I did invitro (twice) and it is no picnic (injections, meds–shots!, tremendous bloating/weight gain.) It is really the LAST treatment in infertility, and I am almost positive no doctor would suggest just casually doing a round of invitro on a woman who had a baby less than 2 years ago. If there was an issue with ovulation, there are medications that may improve fertility–and raise the chance of multiples. That’s more likely. But invitro isn’t exactly like getting a pedicure!

  • Jaye

    Well , you do know what fueled that headline, don’t you? All that speculation on blogs and chats about how Angelina and Brad conceived. Magazines know what sells. if they know you are interested in something, especially to the point where you’re having heated arguments on blogs, they can sell you anyhing.

    Whether it’s true or not is not the point. People will debate the issue day after day week after week. This is the first time I’ve actually read a blog to the extent that I read this one, it’s an eye opener. People will argue about ANYTHING. It doesn’t matter if neither side knows the truth. I guess that’s what makes it interesting to some, constant friction. It’s funny to read, but sad too, because people put so much of themselves in some of these things.It’s becomes personal when your favorite star is attacked.
    ==========================================

    I remember when you used to pimp your little unknown blog to all the Brad and Angie fan sites, the fans helped you build this site where the likes of Min want to do business with you. I know it is your site and you could do whatever you want, but I thought you had more integrity than this.

But when something this personal is talked about in magazines and all over the internet and TV it is a gross violation of privacy and it is sickening to me. It is hateful and despicable for the people who are leaking this kind of crap.
