Brad & Angelina’s Family Album


“An awe words fail to describe,” dad Brad Pitt tells people about his reaction to seeing twins Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline for the first time after being born via cesarean section on July 12. And mom Angelina Jolie, who was worried because they were premature, breathed a sigh of relief when “I saw they were big and screaming with healthy lungs. I was at peace.”


No longer the baby of the famiy, 2-year-old Shiloh (pointing at Knox) has embraced her role as big sister. “Shiloh calls them her babies,” says Jolie. “She and Z (Zahara, 3) pick out their clothes and help change and hold them.”


“The name Vivienne came to us early, as if she named herself – she has always been Viv,” says Pitt of his new daughter (left). “And Marcheline is to honor Angie’s mother. Knox came soon after. It is a family name, my grandfather’s. Léon is a classic French name.”

No longer the baby of the famiy, 2-year-old Shiloh (pointing at Knox) has embraced her role as big sister. “Shiloh calls them her babies,” says Jolie. “She and Z (Zahara, 3) pick out their clothes and help change and hold them.”


Having six children is “chaos, but we are managing it and having a wonderful time,” says Jolie (with Pax, 4, Viv, Zahara, Knox and Shiloh, who’s lying on top of Maddox, 7). Luckily, the couple is getting help from Grammy and Papa – a.k.a. Pitt’s parents, Jane and Bill, who are staying with them at the Château Miraval in Provence, France.


Shiloh (holding Viv) and Zahara are “little mommies” to the twins, says Jolie. “Viv is proving to resemble Ange in spirit, attitude and physicality,” says Pitt. “And Knox, a bit of me.”


Always the life of the party in the Jolie-Pitt clan, Zahara has become a nurturing sister to Viv (in foreground) and Knox. “My mom loved being a mom and made sure her children knew every day how much joy we brought to her,” says Jolie. “I hope to give that to my kids.”


Maddox (left, cradling Viv while Pax checks out Knox) is the informal leader of the six-pack. “This is Mad’s fourth/fifth time becoming an older bro. He’s asking us when we can have more,” says Pitt.


To help prepare the kids for the twins’ arrival, Jolie and Pitt had Pax (with little brother Knox) and his siblings watch “a Dora the Explorer where Dora’s mom has twins – a boy and a girl,” says Jolie. “They watched that a lot. They were excited.”


Pax and Zahara love to play hide-and-seek on the château grounds while the twins – who are on the same schedule, breast-feeding every three hours (”It gets a little crowded at the bar,” jokes Pitt) – take naps.


“Wanting a big family is one of the things that brought us together,” says Jolie (with Viv, left, and Knox). Agrees Pitt: “Always said if I were to do it, I’d do it big.”

    I think that all of Brad and Angelina’s kids are adorable, and I think it is great that they allow the world to see these pictures of them and their family, but still have a happy family life. I also think it is great that they have financially been so generous to so many organizations in need. I personally don’t mind seeing actors and actresses like the Brad and Angelina get paid top dollar, because of their generosity. I believe their kids will grow up to be well rounded travelers, with good morals and values. But most important everyone of them is truly loved by both of their parents.
