Annie Leibovitz & Her Girls: Fun At The Fair

Exclusive - Annie Leibovitz Takes Her Twin Daughters to the Dutchess County Fair

Annie Leibovitz and her daughters Samuelle and Susan were seen at the Dutchess County Fair in Rhinebeck, New York on Sunday (August 26). The celebrity photographer treated the 7-year-olds to cotton candy.

Both girls – born to a surrogate in 2005 – had on headbands and white shirts but chose different colored skirts and leggings to wear. Annie, 62, wore all black.

In a past interview with USA Today - Leibowitz said, “I always wanted children, and I just flipped priorities.”

She also recalled the time she gave birth to her daughter Sarah in 2001.

“They wheeled Sarah in, and you just realized, ‘It’s a person.’ You become responsible.”

    is her daughter name Samuel or its pronounced a different way.

    Pictured here is 10-year old Sarah Cameron and 7-year old Susan. Sarah was born to Leibovitz at 51 in 2001 while Susan (and her twin brother, Samuelle) were born to a surrogate in 2005.

      Some pages say that Samuelle is a girl others that it’s a boy. Judging from a Halloween pic when the twins were 3, I would say it’s a girl.

        Above is Sarah and Susan. Susan’s twin BROTHER Samuelle isn’t with them.

    She gave birth at 51! Wow!

  • Rebecca

    I’m pretty sure Samuelle’s name isn’t pronounced exactly like Samuel — most likely, it’s pronounced like “sam-WELL” or “sam-u-ELLE”, either way, with the “elle” being stressed.

    I can’t believe she gave birth at 51 and then again with twins at 55…wow!

      She only carried Sarah. The twins were born via surrogate.

    Twins at 55?? Totally selfish.

    • Elle

      Why? People are living for much longer now.

        My mother and mother-in-law are both 85, so if this had been either one of them, their twins would be 30 years old and they’d still be alive.

        Still think it’s selfish, Anonymous (#1)?

          Yes, I do. Physically, an 85 year old cannot compete with a 65 or even 75 year old.

            Compete? Why would they have to compete? Compete with who?

            Having a kid at 55 means the kid is a 21-year old when you’re 76 which is not THAT old.

        It’s about quality of life, not just longevity. A 20 year old should not have to take care of their 75 year old parent.

          If parents took care of themselves better, no 20 year old would be taking care of their 75-year old parent.

          My parents are 85 and still live on their own, in their house, on their terms, unassisted.

          Not everyone is a bent over hag at 75.
