Million Dollar Baby

Yes, it’s really babies and rumor has it that People magazine paid fourteen million for the pics of the newest members of The Brangie Bunch, Vivienne and Knox. (who’s there?)

FOURTEEN MILLION DOLLARS. Brangelina is donating that money to charity, but wow. Regular people like us have to pay to have our own baby pictures developed to hand out to relatives. Amazing, isn’t it?

Here’s the cover and there’s supposed to be 19 pages of family photos inside the magazine. The magazine is on sale this morning, if you’re interested in this kind of thing. (You know, like me.)

It’s a nice pic. If I were People magazine dishing out that kind of money, I would have wanted the really good “I didn’t have time in two days to take a shower and I’m covered in baby spit up” pictures instead of these posed things.

Brad Pitt doesn’t look too far off from that, actually. He seems to age every time they add more to the bunch.

Angie looks great, but what the heck is she wearing? The latest in hausfrau?

Quite a change from the June 2006 cover when their daughter Shiloh was born, no?

And where’s the twins funky, "make a fashion statement" outfits?

Shiloh (whose first photo was only worth $4 million) made her debut wearing “The Pots and Pans Band” shirt from Kingsley Clothing. This $42 shirt became all the rage for the newborn to three month old spawn of ultra hip parents who buy their baby clothes at Barney’s New York and Bloomingdale’s.

Kingsley was so shocked by the overwhelming response and increase in his bank account, I’m sure, that he arranged to send a crate of these t-shirts to clothe Namibian newborns!

I’m a little disappointed by what I see on the cover. I’ll let you know what the other 19 pages look like when I pick up the magazine.

You'll have to let me know if one of the twins seems more loved than the other. Looking at the front cover both parents seem to be staring at the same baby, leaving one un-stared at baby.
On second thought... I will probably pick up my own copy to look at them all.

14 million dollars?! At least it's going to a good cause. Angelina is one of those women who can look good no matter what.
