♥ Knox and Vivienne were born in Nice, France
♥ They were delivered via C-section
♥ Knox weighed in at 5.03 lbs and Vivienne at 5 lbs
♥ Dr. Sussman – who delivered the twins – said the C-section was moved forward “for medical reasons” so that the babies could be born “in the best conditions.”
♥ Vivienne’s middle name was chosen to honor Angelina’s late mother
♥ Knox was chosen because it was the middle name of Brad’s maternal grandfather
♥ Vivienne was chosen to play the part of a young Aurora in her mother’s film Maleficent
“For young Aurora, they needed a child who wouldn’t be fazed by the Mistress of All Evil hissing “I don’t like children” in her face. And my little Vivienne—we call her my shadow, because there’s nothing I can do to shake her. I can be tired, I can be grumpy, I can be in a terrible mood, and she doesn’t care. It’s ‘Mommy, Mommy,’ and she’ll cling to me. We knew that she would still do that thing, she’d still smile at me and insist that I pick her up. So we couldn’t really cast anybody else.” – Angelina on casting Vivienne to play young Aurora in Maleficent.
♥ “The babies are doing well. The operation went just perfectly. Angelina is in very good spirits. Brad Pitt was at her side. He was there and all was well.” – Dr. Michael Sussman on the delivery of Brangelina’s youngest children.
♥ “When you look at them, it’s like they were made for each other. They smile at each other, sniff each other, touch each other. It’s just beautiful.” – proud mama Angelina on the relationship between her twins.
♥ “Knox is very much a dude. Very physical, tough. He loves dinosaurs and swords.” – Angelina on her youngest son.
♥ “She is so elegant and delicate. Vivi will pick flowers from the garden and put them in her hair. She likes to get her nails done and collects stuffed animals. It’s funny for me to have to buy all things pink and watch princess movies!” – Angelina on her youngest child.
