The war starts. It was just last Saturday, July 12 that Angelina Jolie gave birth to her much reported twins now that a bidding war for the first pics of the infants has begun. The movie star and her longtime partner Brad Pitt reportedly have negotiated the first picture rights for their babies for a total amount of $11 million.
An undisclosed U.S. magazine is reported to have offered the high profile celebrity couple the amount of money for the first official portrait of baby boy Knox Leon, and baby girl Vivienne Marcheline. And while the amount of cash is claimed as a breaking record, experts say that figure could go even higher, with English publicist Max Clifford predicted the pictures even could earn the parents 10 million pound sterling. All the money reportedly is going to charity.
Jolie delivered twins Leon and Vivienne through a caesarean section at the Fondation Lenval hospital in Nice, France at about 6 P.M. on Saturday night, July 12. Pitt accompanied her during the birth and was said to be "perfectly calm."
Talks have been abuzz since then concerning the twins' first pics and names. Neither Pitt nor Jolie have issued a single official statement about the new additions to their expanding brood.
In the wake of the many talks surrounding Brangelina's newborn twins, the couple's attorneys at law firm, Lavely & Singer, are reported to have snatched up all domain name combinations of the twins' names.
