Angelina Jolie Gives Birth To Boy And Girl In France

Angelina Jolie (photosAngelina Jolie photos) has finally given birth to her twins, a boy and a girl, her doctor at the Lenval hospital in southern France announced on Sunday.

Jolie's doctor, Michel Sussmann, said the Oscar winner had the twins by caesarean section on Saturday evening with partner Brad Pitt at her side: "He (Pitt) was my assistant. He was perfectly calm, totally determined, very pleased to be at the birth of his children, very moved and very emotional... When the babies arrived he was very euphoric. The emotion was very strong for him. I felt the emotion of both the mother and the father. Angelina Jolie was speaking, was laughing with her husband. They were happy."

"For a caesarean the length of stay varies between five and seven days. But since these are twins, and they were born a bit early, the stay might be a bit longer," Sussmann said. He also confirmed that the Caesarean was moved forward from its originally planned date, thought to be a week later, "for medical reasons."

Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline were born a minute apart and are the ultimate million-dollar babies, with their first photos expected to fetch a fortune. Knox weighed in at slightly over 5 pounds, while Vivienne weighed exactly 5 pounds. The mayor of Nice delivered birth certificates for the twins himself, which he also displayed to reporters.

Nice Matin, the local newspaper in the city of Nice in France, estimates the twins' photos are worth more than $11 million. While other experts believe they could fetch as much as $15 million.

Meanwhile, the couple still haven't announced any plans to get hitched. Most recently, Jolie told 'People' magazine: "People have made a lot out of it that we're not. But we both have been married before, and it's very easy to get married, but it's not easy to build a family and be parents together. Any maybe we've done it backwards, but we certainly feel married."
