Angelina Jolie is Having Twins 2008-05-14 11:05:39

Angelina Jolie Confirms She's Having Twins!

It's true! After months of rumors, Angelina Jolie confirmed that she's having twins. In a co-interview with Jack Black to promote their Kung Fu Panda at Cannes, he apparently broke the news, which Angelina then confirmed. We've loved seeing the family's fun in France, from Angie's bikini time by the pool to shopping trips with the girls and it's about to get even more exciting. It will be the 5th and 6th child (all six and under, mind you) for Brad and Angelina. So many babies! Congrats to the seriously growing family — we can't wait to see the two new additions.

Ok LisaJill, could you then please explain to me the personal family tree example that I provided, where the twin tendency ran in my great grandfather's side and not my great grandmother's? Like I said, for my great grandmother's family line, the only twins, fraternal or identical, that show up are my grandfather and great aunt. For my great grandfather's side, both identical and fraternal twins pop up almost every generation, that tree going back to the 17th century. There are rules, and there are always exceptions to every rule. The majority of twins may get that genetic line through the mother's side, but in my own line, it came down through the father's. Granted, it may have come through each of the women who married into that line, although again, see example above. And what are the odds anyway of one family line constantly marrying a twin genetics carrying woman?

LisaJill you apply for approval to adopt -- you don't apply for a specific child. I don't care how rich or famous you are (Madonna's deal is a whole other story -- hence the problems) you don't go pick out a kid and then get approval. Angelina said Zahara was the child selected for her. She was approved to adopt (i.e. paperwork completed) before she and Maddox went to Ethiopia. She, no doubt, applied for a baby girl because she wanted a girl. Angelina said she was shown several babies when she met Maddox. She didn't "apply for" Maddox or Zahara specifically. All our clients knew when they left for Ethiopia was they were going to see a girl between the ages of 3 and 5. Angelina has had nannies from the day Maddox came home. One of her nannies has worked for her on and off since Maddox was 18 months old.

badkitty you're correct in your Twin statement, I posted my statement before I read yours. I happen to have worked in a fertility clinic for 5 yrs, so I know this stuff like the back of my had. With all of these people saying she could have twins because of I'm scratching my head going "don't these people understand the fertilization process at all?!?!?!" Anyway, Kudos to you for being one of the only ones who understands that Brad is not blood related to Angelina there fore would have no bearing on what her body decided to do with the egg or eggs she dropped!

Dublin How can they "tighten" her abs up when they do a c-section? They don't do a full cut anymore, it's only on the bikini line and about 4 to 5 inches if that, there are no muscles to speak of that a doctor is going to be tightening there.

PEOPLE It doesn't matter if Brad had a million twins in his family.They were all FRATERNAL on his side anyway. So it doesn't matter squat. It would have had to been on Angie's side because it's her body that is releasing 2 eggs instead of one, BRAD is putting out thousands of sperm and it's the EGG or EGGS that count when you're having twins NOT THE SPERM. Also, when an egg splits and makes an identical set of twins, it is also the mother's body that does this, her hormones, NOT THE FATHERS!!!! Now if Shilo were to have children, then it would already be in her genes to possibly have twins, because it's it's in her blood by both her mother and her father (ONLY IF ANGELINA GOT PREGNANT NATURALLY WITHOUT THE HELP OF FERTILITY DRUGS)...BUT BRAD HAVING TWINS IN HIS FAMILY MEANS NOTHING TO WHAT OR WHAT DOESN'T HAPPEN IN ANGELINA'S BODY. IT's ANGELINA's PRIOR GENES that determine if she's going to drop one egg or two, or if her one egg that is fertilized splits because of a condition that happens in her body...NOT BRADS in this case.

Katya Considering that Zahara was only at the orphanage for 10 days I don't think Angelina started the "paper work" to get her months She wasn't even an orphan months or even weeks before AJ bought her. ALSO. whoever said having nannies is a new thing for Angelina better go back and do some more research. Angelina has had nannies since before Zahara came into the picture.

Oh and guys, in case you missed it, Jack Black spilled the beans about Angie having twins during the interview (which is why Angie is giving him that "Just wait until that camera stops rolling" look in the photo above) and then Angie reluctantly confirmed it.

about twins being early... most of the time they are but not always. My aunt had twins, she carried them to full term of 40 weeks and they were 8 lbs and 8 lbs 2 oz. 16lbs of baby in there!! I love Jack Black he's just too cute lol Congrats to Angelina, Brad and family.

Badkitty, I know two sets of twins and I have a friend who has a set of twins. None of the parents saw a fertility specialist. It's fairly easy to tell when someone has actually gone to a fertility specialist, as they're the Moms who have four, five, and six babies at the same time. Twin and Triplet births are not rare and occur naturally. Quadruplet, quintuplet, and sextuplet births are usually the result of fertility drugs. Two or three other young Hollywood Moms have had twins in the past couple of months, or they're expecting twins. Did they also see a fertility specialist?

I think Aj & BP probably made a decision to confirm at Cannes, since she would asked numerous times and lying isn't in her nature. I think she isn't due until early August or September but she won't go to term -- she didn't with Shiloh -- and it seems certain they won't risk anything other than a C-Section.

6 pages of comments in 6 hours? There's no way I'm reading all that. Wouldn't like to be subscribed to this one! I wouldn't have thought she'd confirm the twins rumors. I guess she's just full of surprises.

OMG! I didn't believe the rumor about Angie having twins untill now!! She is a lucky lady; in my country only 1 out of 80 women has twins. I would feel so special!!

I can't imagine having that many kids under the age of 10. I'd go insane, but then again they can afford nannies.
