Monday, 14 July 2008

PARIS - The Brangelina twins are here: Angelina Jolie has given birth to a girl and a boy.

The obstetrician who delivered the twins, Dr. Michel Sussmann, told The Associated Press that the actress, the babies and Jolie's partner, actor Brad Pitt, "are doing marvelously well."
 
Sussmann said Jolie gave birth to a boy, Knox Leon, and a girl, Vivienne Marcheline, by Cesarian section Saturday night.
 
He told the AP on Sunday morning that the boy weighed 5.03 pounds and the girl 5 pounds.
 
Pitt was there during the operation, said the doctor, who delivered the twins at the seaside Lenval hospital in Nice in southern France.
 
"Everything is going well," said Sussmann. "The mother, the babies, the father are doing marvelously well."
 
He said the Cesarian was moved forward from its originally planned date "for medical reasons" so that the babies could be born "in the best conditions." Sussman did not give details.
 
The doctor said Jolie is expected to stay in the hospital for a few more days
