Much awaited Jolie-Pitt twins arrive

LOS ANGELES: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s latest joint dropped ahead of schedule. The super couple welcomed a son and a daughter on July 12 evening at the seaside Foundation Lenval in Nice, the actress’ obstetrician has announced. Twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline were delivered via Caesarean section. Jolie should be allowed to leave within a few days. There’s been no official comment from the couple’s camp. The Oscar-winning actress checked into her $500-per-night private room-with-a-view nearly two weeks ago for some prescheduled R&R.

An international cordon of shutterbugs dutifully chronicled hospital visits from Pitt and their kids and Jolie’s brother, James Haven after the birth of twin.
