Before sunrise on Saturday, Angelina Jolie and her newborn twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, left the French Riviera hospital where she gave birth a week ago, the hospital said in a statement.

“The mother and her babies are doing very well,” reported the Fondation Lenval hospital, located in the southern Mediterranean city of Nice, France.

Jolie slipped out at 4 a.m. Saturday with the twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt, again blowing off the intrusion of paparazzi who have stalked her family in France for months– ever since Jolie arrived for the Cannes film festival in May.

Angelina, age 33, checked into the hospital on July 2 and delivered the babies by Cesarean section ten days later. Son Knox Leon weighed 5.03 pounds and daughter Vivienne Marcheline, 5 pounds.

Jolie’s obstetrician, Dr. Michel Sussmann, told reporters after the birth that the 44-year-old Pitt was at Jolie’s side during the delivery, which he said had been pushed up from its originally planned date “for medical reasons” so the babies could be born “in the best conditions.”

The Jolie-Pitt brood had rented four rooms on the fifth floor of the maternity ward of the Lenval hospital, “appropriately located on Nice’s beach-front California Avenue.” The hospital treated the mirrored blue windows of Jolie’s room, which looked out the Mediterranean, with a special material that blocked telephoto lenses from peering in.

Jolie managed to check into the hospital unobserved, reportedly arriving by helicopter on the hospital’s rooftop helipad. That fueled rumors she would also leave the clinic by helicopter,

In its statement, the Fondation Lenval thanked the Jolie-Pitts for choosing its hospital. It also thanked the hospital staff “for the attention and care they paid to the family” and the “journalists around the hospital who did their best to respect their privacy.”

The Nice-Matin newspaper has reported that an unnamed U.S. publication has paid $11 million for exclusive rights to the first photos of the Jolie-Pitt twins and that the proceeds will go to charity.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have four other children _ Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, 2. Before Jolie checked into the hospital in Nice, the family set up a household in Correns, 60 miles away.

This is why reading books is bad*

Star Mag
“EXCLUSIVE: ANGELINA PREGNANT WITH TWINS,” yelled The Star
on January 24, 2008. But I’m just finding out about this now because I’ve been reading books for the last couple of months. I blame books* for me being totally out of the loop on one of the few Hollywood romances that’s the least bit interesting.

Twins!

They don’t have enough paparazzi after them–they go ahead and make twins?!

I guess it shouldn’t surprise too many people other than me as they made little daughter Shiloh and adopted son Pax at about-the same time. Gee, seriously guys, even with your kind of money to hire as many hands as needed to corral the kids, maybe you should slow down for a couple of years.

But Angelina looks fantastic here doesn’t she? Very prettily pregnant.

Angelina Jolie is pregnant again –and she is expecting lover Brad Pitt‘s twins, Star has confirmed. EDIT/Unconfirmed on the twins 03.08

Angie only discovered that she is eating for three over the past week, a source very close to the Lara Croft star reveals.

The two extra kids will bring the Jolie-Pitt family up to six children, all aged under seven. They have three adopted children and Shiloh, their daughter, who was born in May 2006.

Rumors of pregnancy for Angie, 32, have swirled since she appeared at the Critics’ Choice awards on January 7 looking considerably healthier than the almost skeletal figure she had become.

While Brad drank beer, and others at their table downed champagne, she stuck to water.

*I thought perhaps I’d read a book or six. I’ve read books I’m picking near randomly off the Best of books for 2007 by the New York Times. The one I’m reading now is the most fun. “Diana” by Tina Brown.212eqiiiz4l aa115 .thumbnail This is why reading books is bad* I sort of eased back into reading in terms of length of books with On Chesil Beach,115tlyydgml aa115 .thumbnail This is why reading books is bad*

Then Falling Man11 r1cq00kl aa115 .thumbnail This is why reading books is bad*

and now the Diana biography.

So I guess the actual “news”‘story today is again from the :cough:Star:cough:

As they prepare to for the impending summer birth, Brad and Angie are close to sealing a deal for a $20 million, 850-year-old country estate in the quiet village of Eygalieres, near the French Riviera. Officially called Mas de La Chappelle St. Sixte, the property has six bedrooms, a library, vaulted ceilings and a huge pool. The home was built in 1150 by a community of monks.

“Angelina loves that every single stone was put in place by those monks all those centuries ago.”

What a swanky house near the French Riviera looks like:

Of course there’s already snotty comments about the couple being “too good” to birth their kids on US soil but in this case of choosing a fortress-like setting in France, they are sort of revisiting Angie’s heritage as her mother was French. And in any case both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are American so they could birth their children anywhere and the kids will still be American. The other country may recognize dual citizenship but the kid is American. So I hope now that I’ve cleared this up there’ll be no more bitchin’ about where they chose to have their kid.

But OMG, twins! She’s gonna be huge.

A month ago:

She’s very approx. 2-3 mos. along here. <blink>
