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.

    wow jared! can’t believe you posted this crap. I highly doubt that they will have problems with trying to conceive, from what i’ve read before I thought that they enjoyed sex. babies are what happens when you have sex, male and female. I highly doubt they have problems with sex, Angelina even said that she has come up with interesting ways to have sex while pregnant! gawd jared, this was a stupid move!!

    The best thing the fans can do is STOP BUYING TABLOIDS LIKE US WEEKLY, LIFE&STYLE, INTOUCH, OK!, AND STAR.

    Janice Min must be rubbing her little stubby fingers together. Stupid trolls fall for the trick, fall for the story. They think its true, so they take their sticky little fingers off the ice cream and run out to buy the IVF story. Again giving Janice Min another chance at renewing her contract.

    Go on trolls go to the US Lies weekly website. Give the Min parasite hits, keep her in her job so she can supply you with your only chance at love. SomeSTUPIDchick and her alter egos must be creaming themselves.

    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.

    I SOOOOO Agree with you. He never once defended Angelina.

    Christian Bale is way manlier than Brad Pittz. I think Pittz might be a homosexual.

    # 34 CLINIQUA @ 07/24/2008 at 11:05 am DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD – DO NOT DISCUSS or BUY this B.S. RAG: The ONLY way that Jared who is working/partnering with US rag now, can relay how BADLY this very intrusive unsubstantiated unverified story is going over with fans, is to NOT POST HERE on this THREAD. IF I post at all I will be on the last thread. I hope the fans act accordingly and vamoose. I’M DONE w/ THIS THREAD. I hope the fans that frequent JJ are too. I knew this was coming, but boy is it nauseating to see. I can’t believe the JP fans are being treated like this.

    You need help. You have ruined the experience and I’m fed up with your coming here from day one trying to dictate what the hell is appropriate and what isnt according to your warped sense of ownership of all things Angelina and Brad. You dont get to decide shit from shinola about what goes up or what comes down, and if Jared wont tell ya, I sure the hell will. You have made this joint a laughing stock with your over the top lunatic obsessive ranting and ravings about Jennifer Aniston, your writing every damn person who has in your mind maligned the JP’s with the by-product being we ALL get labled a nut for it! You make me sick. You literally make me ill with your crazed need to control what flows, and the only thing that makes me even more ill is the excuses some give your ass for your weirdness.

    Jared, I’m out. I can’t stand it. I have tried to ease back, tried to hard, but this is crazy. Every time you choose to make a decision about YOUR blog, miss Clinical chooses to dog you like you’re her bitch (sorry for that, but hey, it’s the truth). I’m glad you don’t cave, but it still confounds me that you haven’t said you don’t care where she goes but shes got to get the hell up outa here. She’s here? I’m not, or at least as a poster, and it has not one thing to do with that UsWeakly,

    You know my name

  • Sanity

    Why do you people care? How does it affect your life how they conceived, how many kids they do/don’t have? Do you people bathe?

  • LMAO

    THIS IS SO NOT TRUE. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS.

  • LOL

    It is actually the first time that Pitt is getting attacked over this,but since you haven’t read it you have no idea.

    US is telling how much Brad forced her to get pregnant.and he wanted boy.so this time it is not about Jolie,it is quite oppposit,it is all Pitt’s fault.LOLOL

  • Jess
  • Dara

    usually…..the people who talk about having sex aren’t really having sex….case in point…..angie and her goings on about her great sex life with brad and how inventive they are with their positioning etc.
    angie is always lying. she tries to make herself out to be whatever imaginary character she happens to fancy at that particular time. right now…she is the “whore/madonna”….when in truth….she is neither.

  • Gail

    WAIT A MINUTE, SOME OF YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT SHE COULD HAVE FRATERNAL TWINS, A BOY AND A GIRL, NATURALLY??? I HIGHLY DOUBT IT.

    WHAT’S WRONG WITH IN VITRO FERTILIZATION?

    I AM SURE ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT WILL COP UP TO IT OR KEEP THEIR MOUTHS COMPLETELY SHUT ABOUT IT AND MAKE SURE THE INTERVIEWERS NEVER ASK ABOUT IT. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.

    THEY CAN’T LIE AND SAY THEY DIDN’T HAVE IN VITRO, IF ASKED, BECAUSE OF DOCTORS & MEDICAL STAFF THAT WERE THERE AND THE MEDICAL RECORDS TO PROVE IT. NOTHING IS PRIVATE ANYMORE.

    THERE’S NO SHAME IN THIS. I’M DEFINITELY PREPARING MYSELF FOR IN VITRO IN THE FUTURE. MY PARENTS HAD ME AT A LATE AGE AND IF THEY HAD THE OPTION OR MONEY BACK THEN, THEY WOULD HAVE HAD ME THROUGH IN VITRO PROBABLY, IF THEY COULDN’T CONCEIVE. AND THEY COME FROM A STRICT CULTURE, BUT HAVING KIDS IS MORE IMPORTANT.

    JOLIE & PITT KNOW THAT WHEN THEY’RE IN THE LIMELIGHT, THEY CAN’T LIE TOO MUCH ABOUT THINGS.
    IF ASKED OR PEOPLE PONDER ABOUT IT… THEY CAN’T SIT THERE AND LIE. IF THEY DO THAT, I GUARANTEE YOU, SOMEONE IN THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY WILL CAUSE A SCANDAL AND PROVE THEY WERE LYING. THEY CAN’T LIE AND I DON’T THINK THEY WILL.

    THEY KNEW THAT EVERYONE WOULD ASSUME THAT THEY HAD IN VITRO. THEY ARE A NON-TRADITIONAL FAMILY. SO, OF COURSE, THEY WOULD GO THRU NON-TRADITIONAL METHODS OF DOING ALOT OF OTHER THINGS. BUT IN VITRO REALLY ISN’T SO NON-TRADITIONAL ANYMORE. IT’S A GOD-GIVEN FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN’T CONCEIVE WHEN THEY WANT TO.

    ANGELINA MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CONCEIVE BECAUSE OF STRESS AND LOW BODY WEIGHT AND HER BUSY LIFE AND SO FORTH. THEY HAVE THE MONEY TO DO THIS, SO OF COURSE THEY WOULD DO IT. WHEN HAVE YOU EVER WITNESSED THEM CARING WHAT THE WORLD THINKS OF THEM? THEY GO ABOUT THEIR LIVES THE WAY THEY WANT. AND I AM SURE SEVERAL OF THEIR FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES HAVE HAD IN VITRO, TOO.

  • katie n

    What is wrong with in vitro. It does not mean you don’t have sex. It is assisted conceiving. And with twins and the kind of stressful life they lead it is more than probable they did it. And it is just fine and not news worthy at all. Women go through these procedures everyday.

  • marianna

    I wonder if these are the same sources that told US magazine that Angelina hated Shiloh. It’s all the same BULL. Brad and Angelina are living their lives wit their SIX beautiful children in the South of France.

  • Helen

    It is quite fuuny,how small minded some of you people are!I could care less about Pitt and Jolie’s life and babies.

    but telling that since they might have had IVF,so they don’t have sex,just shows whether you are just bunch of kids or you are just some lonely women who don’t have any information about sex life. and in either way you just don’t know anything about sex and things which are related to it.

    Celeb gossip is a hot ticket
    Consumers eat it up, and accuracy isn’t important
    By Paul Bond

    July 23, 2008, 09:50 PM ET
    Here’s a shocker: Celebrity gossip is so popular — and lucrative — that facts need not get in the way of a juicy story.

    Not exactly revelatory, but coming from a couple of top executives responsible for the dissemination of celebrity news, it might be a bit disconcerting.

    “Access Hollywood” executive producer Rob Silverstein and Yahoo Entertainment GM Sibyl Goldman agreed Wednesday that fake is almost as good as real, from the consumers’ perspective.

    And perspective is important. Silverstein stressed that his show’s dedication to the truth is unshakable, adhering to the same guidelines as any other NBC news program. He also noted occasions where he has sacrificed an exclusive story in the interest of taking an extra day or two for confirmation.

    Consumers, though, don’t care so much about the accuracy of their celebrity news, as long as they can be part of the conversation.

    Silverstein and Goldman were among the 30 speakers at the first EconCeleb conference Wednesday in Hollywood.

    “People just want to be in the know,” Silverstein said. “They want to know what others are talking about.”

    He said “Access Hollywood” will take advantage of all the misinformation about celebrities by debuting in September a feature it calls TGIF — This Gossip is False.

    As for Yahoo, it isn’t in the business of breaking news itself, only offering it from various sources. Goldman said she has noticed that sometimes a correction or clarification of a celebrity news story is just as popular as the original, inaccurate reporting.

    “Mistakes are big business,” she said. “People love reading retractions.”

    About 200 people paid $400 apiece to attend the half-day EconCeleb, put on by ContentNext Media. Guardian Media Group, parent of U.K.’s Guardian newspaper, purchased ContentNext this month for $30 million.

  • Uma Richmond

    A member of Jon Voight’s family is expecting twins. Brad Pitt also has twins on his side of the family. So it is highly likely that Angelina and Brad were destined to have twins!!!! Get it?

  • Jaxon

    She used in vitro, a risky, expensive procedure that doesn’t always even WORK, so she could get pregnant easier? Give me a break. I don’t believe this for one minute. I bet Brad and Angie are so sick of the press. It was bad before they were together, now it is beyond ridiculous. I think it’s time they start suing everyone until they make these people think twice before they print garbage.

    Sure, Angie used in vitro where you have to shoot yourself full of hormones for weeks to harvest eggs, go in and have invasive, embarrassing procedures—all so pregnancy would be EASIER. That sure makes sense doesn’t it? Because just simply having juicy sex with your partner is such WORK.

  • MElanie

    actually invitro runs about 20,000.00 and that doesnt include the meds… i am doing it so i know.

  • Yeah it’s me

    i am simply shocked. I just can’t believe this. This fits perfectly with how they roll. If Jolie and Pitt were not who they are, their parenting strategies would simply be called child exploitation and neglect. With her horrid psychiatric and substance abuse history, Ms. Jolie would have significant difficulty adopting in the USA, a country she apparently feels is only good enough to buy tickets to her “films. Children do not benefit from silly platitudes and photo-ops. Angelina Jolie and the testiclularly challenged Brad Pitt have objectified their children. These putative “do-gooders” are narcissistic, self-involved, insensitive, shallow, and most of all opportunistic. Angelina Jolie is has a malignant personality disorder and is one of the most manipulative adrenaline junkies I have ever seen. She can’t seem to be satisfied with any stable zip code or demographic. And Brad is a silly chameleon. He has become a peripheral, ancillary national buffoon.

    The chaotic, rootless, inconsistent, and unstructured circus-like life these children are leading is deeply disturbing. If these precious children are not out being used to support an image or photo shopped, they are being cloistered in some large, temporary, vacuous domicile. No stable playmates, predictability, surroundings, or even time zone. Unfortunately, it is doubtful that Ms. Jolie’s compulsive child collecting and need for media attention and aggrandizement will be appeased any time soon. Brad Pitt apparently is suffering from some type of pre senile dementia, milk toast syndrome, or complex combination of both. Mrs. Doubtfire looks more effective than Mr. Pitt does these days. Optimally, Jolie’s next compulsive life phase will involve rescuing some type of endangered species so that there will be minimal damage to the human beings she steps over with such dismissal and entitlement.

  • Helen

    and yeah People can have fraternal twins in natural way as well.

    If you are a person who has been on the pills for a long time and you are over 30 year old,the possiblities of having twins increased.and If you have twins on your side,it will increase even more.only women’s side,not men.

    I wanted to add,it makes me sad that US weekly is using this cure as something to attack people,either they are celebrity or not. it is a cure for many couple out there. respect people alittle more.

    Who gives a crap? They are probably the two fakest people on the planet.

  • Kids

    And so what if if this were true… They wanted to have those kids and they have them. They are a nice family and if they want to have more biologial or adopted kids then go ahead!…

    Having kids is a good thing when you have the love, the time and the money to raise them!

    May God bless this family!

  • WOW

    Angelina was verrry thin for a while that messes ovulation up. it’s far more likely that she took fertility pills, this is way more believable then all that rubbish about IVF

  • ha

    Angie got it done — she’s so skinny — makes it hard to conceive. Funny everybody can’t believe that. They want to believe Brad and Angie are getting freaky w/each other every night. Not so 4 yrs into this relationship with all those noisy kids jumping in their bed.

    Am very disappointed that you printed this, Jared. IVF? I doubt it very much, just not logical when you look at the whole picture. Clomid? Maybe. But even if, this is no one’s business.

  • Kitty Kermel

    WHy are you so outraged about this news? Jared is not more credible than Us Weekly. You act as if what Jared posts is gospel. JAred has the right to post whatever he wants, it is after all about the gossip, remember? Get a grip people.

    Besides, what if they had in vitro? Are the kids less valuable because of that? You are insane!

  • Rach

    Angelina said she “was suprised” when she found out she was having twins. Even if it was IVF which i highly doubt who cares? Her body, her life and it’s not upto us to say if it’s wrong or right. I think you dumbasses that come on here trying to be insulting are cockends but i bet you’d try tell me i was wrong huh? I pity you guys for being so gullible and naive. It’s not impossible to have twins you know. But i know you’ll grasp at the slightest thing you can to use against Angelina. She is an amazing woman and i love her and her family muchly! We don’t have to defend her because we don’t need to..we are not so self-righteous that we need to tell other people how to live their lives.

  • Sunny

    I agree with #188. You guys act like you own this website. This is Jared’s site and he can post whatever he likes. If you don’t like it to bad.

  • UHUH

    ROXIE = CLINIQUA

  • ricky

    #192 US Weakly is jealous because they didn’t get baby pictures,and all nasty blogs are mad today because Brads lawyer made them remove private pictures.So they are all pissed off at Brad and Angelina.US Weaklycan go get pictures of Aniston with her legs wide open.they can take picture of anistons baby her dog.

  • Cliniqua needs to be IP banned

    There are reasonable JP fans, and there are unreasonable ones. Cliniqua, who was also obviously Roxie on this thread, is one of the unreasonable people.

    She is one of the people that the entire internet laughs at. Why Jared allows her to be here is beyond me. She needs to be ip banned from here, ip banned from jjb.

    She does not own this place, and she threatens to leave all the time, well I for one wish she would go, permanently.

    Does Jared need to have her around? The answer is no. She tries to dictate what everyone should do, where they need to post.

    I can’t stand her.

    Jared, please IP ban her, forever.

  • poor thing

    boy, by now it would be obvious that Jared is over you guys.

    Well I read this piece of crap article this morning at the store.The story has more holes in it than swiss cheese and I’m being kind!Janice Minn even manages to get a little dig in on Jen in the process.Walking to my car I just keep thinking,why are certain women STILL allowing the tabloids to get rich printing this sh*t?Why?There is NO way in hell any fertillty doctor would preform IVF on a 33 yearold women who had given birth less than 2 years ago with NO prior trouble getting pregnant.Also US claims they tried the natural way before IVF.When?Angelina was shoting Wanted on and off April-Aug.What woman would attempt to concieve while filming a action movie?So Us Weekly really wants us to believe that this couple tried to get pregnant Sep-Oct then said to hell with it and went for IVF?GMAFB!!!!!! I will NOT be posting on this thread again due to this bogus story.Hope everyone has a nice weekend!
