We all gasped in shock when we first saw Sandra Bullock gracing the cover of PEOPLE magazine with her adorable son, Louis. First the cheating scandal, and then this!
The magazine’s highest-selling baby cover of all time has been Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s big twin reveal in 2008. How could we resist Knox and Vivienne?!
So the big question is: Did Sandy B and Louis beat Angie, Brad and the twins as the highest-selling baby cover in history?

It’s no surprise that PEOPLE‘s shocking Sandra Bullock baby cover/divorce announcement was a huge seller, but it hasn’t yet replaced the biggest-selling baby exclusive in the magazine’s history. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s newborn twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, still hold the title.
“Sandra’s cover has been on newsstands for a week and it has already sold over 2.7 million copies,” Popeater reports. “That’s only 100,000 less than the 2.8 million copies the magazine sold when Angelina’s twins graced the cover — and a half-million more copies than the June 2006 issue with exclusive baby pictures of Brad and Angelina’s first daughter, Shiloh, which moved 2.2 million newsstand copies.”
Although it looks like Sandra’s baby might outsell the Jolie-Pitt twins eventually, she still has a long way to go to beat the top two seller’s in the magazine’s 35-year history: The September 11 issue (4.1 million copies) and the issue covering Princess Diana’s death (3 million).
