Jolie/Pitt Twins Worth $7 Million Each
ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT’s twins are worth a whopping $7 million (#3.5 million) each – that’s what People magazine bosses paid for exclusive pictures of the family.
A European editor for the publication was spotted in Nice, France where the twins were born last month (Jul08), on the day Jolie gave birth.
And a deal between the U.S. magazine and the celebrity couple was done within days.
The resulting cover shot and 19-page “family album” special is sure to give People one of its biggest issues of the year (08).
The cover shot features the doting parents cradling their newborn twins.
The spread also features the couple’s other children, Shiloh, Maddox, Pax and Zahara playing with their new siblings.
Jolie says, “My mom loved being a mom and made sure her children knew every day how much joy we brought to her. I hope to give that to my kids.”
Other shots feature a blue-mohawked Maddox cradling his new baby sister and brother Pax rocking his baby brother as proud dad Pitt looks on.
Meanwhile, Jolie admits she was nervous towards the end of her pregnancy because she knew her babies, born a minute apart, would be born prematurely.
She tells People, “When I saw they were big and screaming with healthy lungs, I was at peace.”
