UPDATE: People Magazine will have the cover shot of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins up on the magazine’s website at 7pm ET Sunday evening.
Hello! Magazine has ALSO secured an “exclusive” multi-million pound deal to show the first photos of Hollywood megastars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s newborn twins. The magazine outbid it’s biggest rival OK! for the rights to photos of Knox and Vivienne. Hello! has it’s ownership in Spain, and is headquartered in London. It’s circulated in the UK and most of Europe, as well as in Canada and even the U.S. It is translated into Spanish for circulation in Spain as !Hola!
A Hello magazine insider said: “This is one of the publishing sensations of the decade… We expect to triple our circulation.” Hello! has brought its publication date forward to August 4. People magazine hasn’t announced the date of the publication of IT’s exclusive picture deal with Brad and Angie. Hello and People aren’t owned by the same company, although they did share the first pictures of Shiloh in 2006. Rumor has it that the winning mags have to agree to stop using the term “Brangelina” forever! Whatever…but it sounds like Hello! may at least beat People to the stands!
People magazine has reportedly coughed up the winning bid for the first pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolieâ€™s twins – Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline. The winning bid is rumored to be between $10 million and $15 million. (If the mag is to be believed…there’s been a bit of speculation about inflated numbers being touted on these baby deals. We’ll probably never know the truth!) The pictures will be featured in a future People magazine issue, and Brad and Angelina have said the funds will go for charity.
Wow. The stars are REALLY gonna have to step it up now! No longer is ONE baby enough to get the most press, as J.Lo and Angelina Jolie have raised the bar. You’ve gotta have at least two at a time!
Rebecca Romijn is pregnant with twin girls! She and hubby Jerry O’Connell just celebrated their one-year anniversary on July 15th, but it looks like their two big gifts will arrive closer to Christmas time! Rebecca and Jerry met at a bash in 2004 and he proposed a year later. A source close to the actor told Us magazine, “Jerry couldnâ€™t be happier about becoming a dad.â€
Earlier this month, O’Connell told the mag that they had been trying to have kids. We’ll have to wait and see if the first pictures of the twins will bring more than pictures of a single baby. Congratulations to the lucky couple!
Were you wondering how Angelina Jolie was so freakin’ fertile? Snarkista thought it was the effect of having so many kids around already; that they juiced up her hormones. But Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston failed to conceive during their marriage, despite reportedly trying hard. Now Us Weekly reports that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt turned to fertility treatments to quickly conceive twins Knox and Vivienne. ‘Cuz you don’t keep Saint Angelina waiting!
“They conceived through in vitro fertilization,” a well-placed source within their camp tells Us. “They both desperately wanted more babies soon.”
They DESPERATELY wanted more babies? Brangelina has a child addiction. Let’s just get it out in the open and call it what it is. Angie’s traded the smack for the diaper bag.
Dr. Arthur Wisot of L.A.’s Reproductive Medical Group (who did not treat the couple) says:
“We live in an era of reproductive freedom, so anybody can do anything they want within legal limits.The chance of having fraternal twins at Angelina’s age (33) naturally is under 1 percent; with in vitro, the chances are 25 percent.
The actress chose the procedure (which can cost around $12,000 a pop) so “she wouldn’t have to deal with the stress of trying to get pregnant,” the source tells Us. “She could just knock it out.” Saint Angie didn’t have time to do it the traditional way because she still has countries to bless.
Also, you KNOW how hard it is to have sex when you have a bazillion kids running around! It just kills the mood ‘cuz you’re scared they’ll walk in and BUST you. Angie wants to have 10 kids. That leaves 4 more to go! Brad is 45 and his man-seed is probably a little slow. It’s gonna be the turkey-baster or another international
Professional Stalker Jennifer Aniston says she couldn’t be happier for her ex Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. A pal of Jen’s tells Us Weekly that “she hopes the twins are beautiful”, and that “she’d never want anyone to be unhappy with their kids”.
Good Lord, that girl is worse than I thought. All of those $20,000 a month beauty treatments I’ve been hearing about DEFINITELY were not for beautifying anything INSIDE. Like Angie and Brad wouldn’t love the babes if they WEREN’T beautiful. Whatever, Jen! Little Miss Shallow would have celebrated her eighth anniversary with Brad Pitt on July 29. If she hadn’t been such a piece of effin’ flypaper.
