Saturday night, at about 8 p.m. Angelina Jolie gave birth to twins, a boy named Knox Leon and a girl named Vivienne Marcheline (named after Angelina’s mother, who died early last year).

The number of Jolie-Pitt children is now up to 6, as Knox and Vivienne now join brothers Pax and Maddox and sisters Zahara and Shiloh.

The pictures of the new babies should sell for millions, with the amount received expected to go to charity, as they were when Shiloh was born.

I really like both Angelina and Brad. In spite of the rumors and gossip as to how they ended up together, I have always admired them both. Angelina and her charity work are something that we might complain about: “Oh, there’s St. Angelina again!” but how many times do we rip apart celebrities for being self-involved assholes?

They seem to be utterly happy together and with their children. They spend their free time running around the world, helping the less fortunate and bringing attention to issues people watching them on Access Hollywood might never think about. And realizing the absurdity that a picture of their child will fetch millions, they turn it into a positive thing for the issues they care about. And who can hate on that?
