Photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins Knox and Vivienne in Japan

As we reported yesterday, Brangelina headed out to promote their films in Japan the morning after the SAG Awards on Sunday. And of course, Brangelina always travels as a brood. As it turns out, seven-month-old twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline were photographed as Brangelina arrived in Japan.

Is it weird that both Knox and Vivienne look just like Shiloh around that age? Methinks the open-mouthed Pitt genes dominate over the Jolie-goth genes. Vivenne is in Angelina’s arms and she’s wearing what looks to be a cute, fluffy, white onesy. I can barely see Knox, because Brad put a jaunty hat on him.

    beautiful family

    Perfect Oscar timing – notice how Brangelina HAS to campaign instead of relying on their acting chops (or lack there of). Resort to Plan B and bring out the kids and use them for publicity and campaigning for the Oscars. This is the reason I so dislike the 2 of them – constantly using their kids for PR when it is convenient for them. Then being hypocrites wanting their privacy – I wish they would both go away forever.

  4. vale says:

    It’s like the Ryōan-ji Zen Garden- you never see the entire family in one picture, one is always missing.

  5. Kristen says:

    Linda ~

    Lack of acting chops with Oscar noms….. are you serious?

    And you would probably be the one who would bitch about them if they didn’t have the children – because they would be with a nanny!

    It’ great to know you dislike them – but even better to know they don’t give a damn!

  6. HEB says:

    I’m not a fan of those two, but they make the most adorable babies I’ve ever seen.

  7. Linda says:


    You are so wrong…Brangelina does give a damn…they really give a damn, which is why they work so hard on their PR. Please note the ANY time they receive any type of negative press they try so hard the next time out to correct their mistakes…their performances and movies are dead in the water at the awards – their nominations are “filler” nominations and they are not really considered contenders – so now they are brining out their kids – to get their nominations they sold themselves with Brad’s parents – they have campaigned for their nominations instead of relying on their performances and let those performances speak for themselves. I dislike them for being hypocrites – the worst kind of hypocrites.

  8. Codzilla says:

    Look at that tiny boo! *annoyance with Brangelina is shelved momentarily*

  9. rules says:

    awe, cute. BUT, she has her baby in the carrier wrong, I know cause I have the same one, the arms go through the hole right below where her arm is.

  10. geronimo says:

    Sweet! They do look like mini Shilohs.

  11. Baholicious says:

    Rule: You’re right and now the picture is kind of blown for me :-( mais, bebe Vivi est encore jolie!

  12. bros says:

    linda, AKA ned

    i hardly think 13 nominations is considered “filler.” obviously there is something that impressed the academy. and angelina’s nomination for the changeling…if she is just filler, why not fill it up with a nomination for any one of the talented leading ladies this year-nicole kidman, etc. there are always more wonderful performances than there is space for nominations, so the filler comment is way off base.

    they receive negative publicity (im curious what you think the negative publicity is that they received…besides that magazing wildly speculating about the health of their children, they’ve been getting nothing but good press lately) from stupid paps and magazines all the time and i dont see them doing anything out of the ordinary to ‘counteract’ it.

  13. mh says:

    May be they just wanted to show the babies to stop those horrible rumours from Star magazine

  14. Anon says:

    Oh gosh this is going to wake up Ned,
    someone call child protective services lol

  15. Anni says:

    aw, they´re so cute! and man do they look like shiloh.

  16. Sara says:

  17. girl says:

    Those carriers are way uncomfortable for moms compared to Asian style carriers or wraps. Especially as babe gets older. But it is very cool to see a celebrity wearing their baby.

  18. HookedonBass says:

    Heh. Jaunty hat. I love that phrase.

  19. Baholicious says:

    LOL Anon! Not The Ned :-) Where is he anyway?

  20. anneesezz says:

    These kids are average looking and if their last name wasn’t Jolie-Pitt they wouldnt’ get a second look by most. Seriously I do not get what all the fuss is about.

  21. BabySanta says:

    Aww vivienne is really cute!
    ANd btw am I the only one thinking that Angelina looks like she’s made of plastic?

  22. Trillion says:

    Baho: fortunately these kids, like their mom, can live up to their “Joli(e)” moniker! Quelle chance!

  23. marmite says:

    the kids have been the innocent all along. they are very cute.

    personally i think they look unkempt most of the time and the colours black & grey is not really suitable for kids their age. but different strokes for different folks.

    i must say the babies are nicely rounded and have chubby faces

  24. Trillion says:

    I dress my 10 month old in gray and black all the time! What can I say, we’re the “dark load” family. I agree the chubby cheeks are just too cute.

  25. Diva says:

    Oh, my HECK… those cheeks make me wanna CRY! lol

    BEAUTIFUL babies!

  26. Sonnet says:

    If those screaming crap would take the time to at least try to educate themselves they would be far better off and have a more positive outlook on life. Only the Emperor and Empress are allowed to bypass the main Narita Airport terminal. Everyone else must enter through that main terminal. Doesn’t matter if they arrive by private plane or by scheduled airline service. That is why all the celebs going to Tokyo have their pixs taken and fans are present. There is no bypassing allowed like at other airports with vans on the tarmac and such. Japan strictly enforces its laws.

  27. sissoucat says:

    @ Rule, Baholicious

    The hole is fitted for an infant’s arms. For bigger babies, it’s much easier to put their arms above, since they have grown a lot. Also, this way babies can move their arms a lot more, grab things, suck their hands…

    Older babies hate being stuck with the head in their mother’s bosom and both arms apart.

  28. mel says:

    The kids are soooo cute and I cant believe how big Shiloh is getting. The one grip I have is that it always seems that Angie and Brad have an agenda. As much as I would hate the poppos following my every move they seem to enjoy it.

  29. daisy424 says:

    Little babies!! I want to munch on their cheeks, they’re darling. Yummy!
    Wow they are growing so fast, Shiloh looks almost as tall as Z!
    The ‘jaunty hat’ that Knox is sporting is darling. Beautiful family!

  30. MSat says:

    They are adorable – but I wanna see more Shiloh and Miss Z!!!!

  31. Anon says:

    Baholicious:LOL Anon! Not The Ned :-) Where is he anyway?
    He’ll be here, and they just got off a plane too, we all know how he feels about babies/children flying. All that suffering LOL

  32. czarina says:

    I LOVE the one picture of Knox (being carried by Brad) where the baby has this total “Holy Hell, WTF am I doing here????” look on his face–priceless!!!

    It’s neat that, even at this age and not due to the way they are dressed, you can really tell which is the boy and which is the girl. Adorable.

    Ah, sometimes when I see these kind of pictures I miss my babies being babies! (Although show me a picture of them changing the kids’ diapers, and that sentimental feeling will fade quickly!)

  33. maxi says:

    Angelina, now that we see how healthy your babies are we also see that you now have not only one but two little girls who look just like their grandpa Jon. Is God tryin to tell you somethin? I bet He does the same thing to you next time you conceive.

  34. Wonder Woman says:

    wow even with picture of adorable babies people still find reasons to hate. Do people ALWAYS need to be so hateful?

  35. NJMDPS says:

    ADORABLE! No fan of the parents but their children are just the sweetest.

  36. MomInNH says:

    Gorgeous babies… Just adorable beyond words.

  37. gilly says:

    The kids all look really fed up, and why when they are inside do the jp’s have to wear sun glasses

  38. texasmom says:

    Woh, I just saw a little video clip of this scene at the People Magazine site, and there is so much screaming and so many flashes, it is a miracle they don’t all just start bawling (parents included). I can’t think of anything more tiring than flying internationally with young kids, and to face THAT at the end of it would be just too much!

  39. geronimo says:

    “They are adorable – but I wanna see more Shiloh and Miss Z!!!!”

    Me too. I miss them. *sigh*

  40. Mairead says:

    Don’t worry lads – Ned and his mad cut-and-paste skillz won’t let us down *wink*

    Gilly, I think it’s probably because they’re bleary-eyed after a long flight. And considering how bug-eyed so many people look after flying (the must.. get.. to.. baggage.. claim.. 20 minutes.. before.. they.. start.. unloading! stare), I don’t blame ‘em.

    Now, I’m not maternal but I do get such a kick out of these kiddos. Lookeee – Shiloh and her regulation silkie!
    Everyone else is too cool for school, but the babies are there like, “Whoooooooaaaaa, this being able to focus thing is mad!”

  41. Leandra says:

    How else are they supposed to get to Japan?. They have to go through the airport and Customs like everyone else. Hardly a “publicity” stunt. This family has all and more that they want. You think they need more exposure to get movie roles? Hardly. Just calm your jealousy because it’s very obvious and make you look like total losers.

  42. Annie says:

    Babies look cute and healthy.

    And that’s good enough for me :)

  43. Jenna says:

    Cute children to the extreme. I can’t wait to see what they look like in a few more months. See who they really favor. Seems like Pitt’s genes take over for the babies!

  44. Rosanna says:

    Aaaaw I still prefer Shiloh and Maddox :) but these babies are cute.

  45. Syko says:

    Lovely family! I’d like to nuzzle on one or both of those babies for awhile!

  46. Lydia says:

    You know, I just wonder if the people from the tabloids don’t feel sick. I mean, I find slightly weird all this obsession with the celebrities kids. Of course, Suri, Shiloh and these babies are cute. But, I feel disgusted to see them in magazine covers as if they were very much relevant. They’re not. They’re just kids. Nothing more than that. They don’t have to be famous just because their parents are. Ah, but i forgot the kids are exactly one of the reasons this couple is so famous…
    About the Oscar, again I’ll say: the couple has to be content with the nominations. They won’t win. Brad won’t get over Rourke, Penn and Frank Langella. Angelina certainly will not win over Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. And Benjamin Button will be bombed. Slumdog Millionaire will take everything.

  47. Syko says:

    All children are very much relevant.

  48. Tassi says:

    Angelina has that baby in the Bjorn wrong. The reason for the arm holes is not only for comfort, but also to allow the bjorn front part to provide support to the baby’s head in the event of jostling. Which is an occupational hazzard when you are they oungest of 6 kids!

    I like The Brange – but please someone adjust that Baby Bjorn carrier!

  49. Larissa says:

    omg its really wrong…and that does look painful! ouch!! But AJ was probably in a rush and didn´t notice! It happens!
    gorgeous babies!

  50. Anni says:

    that thing is not made of iron, you know…i don´t think it hurts the baby even a bit.

  51. KB says:

    Has anyone ever noticed that when Shiloh was young in photo’s with Angie, Shiloh never really held onto her mom. she would hold on to her dad in photo’s but with Angie, her arms would always be at her side or away from Angie. It’s eerily similar to Knox looking like he is trying to hold Brad but Vivienne doesn’t seem connected to Angie at all….

  52. NotBlonde says:

    Those babies are adorable, but then i think all babies are precious and cute.

    I don’t agree though that they couldn’t have hidden them. They knew they were going through the major part of the airport, both of them have likely already been through that particular airport. They could have put blankets over their little heads if they really wanted to keep the kids hidden and maintain their privacy. It’s a great PR move though, gotta give them that.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button has 13 nominations yeah…only two of those are for acting. Don’t pretend like the movie got a bunch of nominations because the acting was so great. It is mostly nominated for things like sound, script and make-up effects, all of which were extraordinary. They are doing a great job of Oscar campaigning but it won’t work. No one in their right mind would give those awards to those two over the actors and actresses nominated in their respective categories.

  53. so what says:

    The kids are cute, like all kids are, not the most beautiful kids in the world by a long shot..but cute..can’t stand the parents..

  54. vicsmith says:

    First, Vivienne looks perfectly content, not in pain from carrier, at all. Second, with her picture being taken by who knows how many photographers, it is not a mystery why she’s not actively bonding with her mother right that second. People can see the worst things when they make up their minds to.

  55. drm says:

    The twins look SO like their dad…very cute…how nice to see all of them out and about…and the parents look sane…even with nannies six is A LOT of work…

  56. Maritza says:

    What beautiful children, they are just like Shiloh. The whole family is beautiful. God Bless them.

  57. Keekee says:

    Is it just me or has Angelina pumped even more collagen than usual in her lips? She’s turning into Lisa Rinna junior. The kids are cute, though.

  58. hatsumomogirly says:

    Maybe you just hate kids…
    I work as a waitress and i love it when my tables bring babies. They are so beautiful and precious!Even if they aren’t blond and blue eyed. I think all of them are special regardless of their breeding.

  59. tigerlille says:

    What a beautiful family. As for the haters – just scroll to the next story if you don’t like the Jolie-Pitts. Why waste your time with vile speculations and snide emarks? Or could it be that it makes you feel important to put down the rich and famous?

  60. Diva says:

    Ok, stone me, shoot me, whatever, but I sooooo want to see as many pics of Shiloh as we do of Suri!

    I have a suggestion for the Jolie-Pitt’s next “publicity machine” (talk about an overused term) endeavor… a Shiloh/Zahara photoshoot!

  61. Ned says:

    Why the sunglasses inside the building?
    Some more work done on the eyes?

    Anyhoo, it’s a great photo op, and it’s great that they can make sure the nannies give them the children once they have the photographers notified and waiting.

    However, this is another illustration that Angelina is completely clueless as to how to take care of children.

    You would have imagined that after 6 children she would figure out how to put a baby in a carrier.

    That’s what happens when nannies are the ones taking care of the children.

    Angie should have paid more attention to what her nannies are doing, BEFORE she begins another round of photo ops before the Oscars.

  62. Diva says:

    Superhero “Ned” fighting the uber villainess Angelina the Jolie to save the world from her evil-doing and general horribleness as the root of all that is wrong and bad in the world.

    Good ol’ “Ned”… nice disguise, too, btw…. IMO.

  63. Kristen says:

    Bros ~

    I was gonna take Linda on… but you said it all. Well done!

  64. Kristen says:

    Ned ~


    You are one sick puppy!

  65. Sickitten says:,,20255273,00.html?xid=rss-topheadlines

    Here’s the vid of these pics. Now you tell me how phony this is and how traumitizing it is to children.

    This makes me sick. Turn off the volume as the fans are screaming their heads off and you might scare your pets.

  66. RAN says:

    The kids are adorable! Since they’re so cute, I’ll reserve my opinions about the parents for now (wink).

    Why is Ned being attacked? He’s only restating what others have already said.

  67. Don'tStopBecause says:

    That People mag video also seems to show Pax pulling his hood up and over his face, with Brad then pulling it back down.
    But yeah those kids are cute and there was probably no other way for them to exit the airport…

  68. Lily says:

    sweet healthy children with loving attentive parents~ life is good.

  69. DD says:

    Who’s the alien carrying that baby in the headline pic?

  70. heima says:

    Ned is not sicker than the worshippers.
    As for the babies, they don’t shine, they don’t float surrounded by a golden halo… I suppose that they are just like every child in the world, amazing!

  71. Keekee says:

    Ned, you’re the man! I have a feeling some of AJ’s family/friends post here. Wait, she doesn’t have any friends. My bad.

  72. Beautiful family, ugly commentary.

  73. elisha says:

    Alright I hate the Brange, but the babies are effin C-U-T-E!!! WAY cuter than Shiloh was, I found her to have a creepy baby doll vibe. Holy cuteness, Batman.

  74. elisha says:

    Also, I love, love, LOVE ANGIE’S SUNGLASSES!!! I WANT THEM!

  75. jay says:

    The only ones that look happy in the pictures are Brad and Angelina. but they will tell you how much the children like to travel…BULL!

  76. Megan says:

    From watching that video I feel as if it could either be totally innocent, or a total publicity stunt. I can’t decide either way. They seem to be walking very slowly through the area so that people can take their photo. I’m also sure that an airport would have another entrance that would allow them to get to where they needed to be with more discretion. I feel bad for the children, they’re becoming celebrities through no choice of their own.

  77. jay says:

    The video tells the entire story.(like they are in a parade) The kids look unhappy. They know how to evade the media, but they didn’t want to. They wanted to be seen, and don’t forget the Oscars. I’m getting sick of them trying to manipulate everyone. It is their full time job. They should just focus on being parents. A nanny reported a while back that they never let anyone hold the children when pictures are being taken but behind closed doors that’s what mainly happens.

  78. czarina says:

    On the other hand, when tabs start having headlines like: Where are the Twins? what does usually mean?
    For them it means that the paps are now competing to get a picture of the twins which leads to more danger for the family (trespass, break-ins, etc.)
    They are smart, in my opinion, to deflect some of that by just giving the paps what they want–a few photos of the babies in a setting they can control.
    People who scream and yell about Brad and Angie setting up photo-ops quickly forget that even on a huge mansion in France, where they did everything possible to be private, papparazzi still tresspassed and took picutres of them in their own home.
    They obviously have to balance giving enough photo ops so that it doesn’t become a competition to the paps and increase the dollar value of the pictures because then things can get ugly for all of them.

  79. Kristen says:

    Kee Kee ~

    And you call me a stalker….. pot meet kettle.

    Your right up there with Ned and I wouldn’t be proud of that.

  80. Kristen says:

    Keekee ~

    And you know Angie’s has no friends how?

    What about Gwen, Clint and his wife, Bono, Marianne Pearl….just to name a few!

  81. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    I’m not even bothering to read all the snarky stuff in the comments. It’s not weird that the two babies look like Shiloh–they also came from the same two parents. My brother and I (two years apart) looked absolutely identical as babies.

    And the open mouth big eyes thing is most likely from all the photo flashes.

    I don’t get it when people get so emotionally invested in hating celebrities to the point of making stuff up about them and speaking of them like they know them. It’s creepy.

  82. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Ok I watched the video. They each have a child by the hand and each have a baby in a carrier on the front. What were they supposed to do, sprint through the airport? LOL! Some people here have apparently never traveled with kids before, much less six kids. Little legs don’t cover a lot of ground quickly. Angelina has Shiloh by the hand and she’s what, two? Three? That age doesn’t walk fast unless they want to, LOL. You have to slow down your pace so they aren’t being dragged.

    But I suppose that would have been better? Drag the kids through the airport because they’re moving so fast?

    I’m not really a fan OR a hater, but it’s amazing to me how if they do one thing they’re criticized and it’s a big conspiratorial plot, but if they do the opposite thing, they’re criticized and it’s a big conspiratorial plot.

  83. cc says:

    I had a carrier like this for my kids, too, and I have to say, my son would be extremely upset if I put his arms in the hole. Just a thought to put out there.

  84. journey says:

    and if they’d thrown blankets over the babies heads they would have been compared to michael jackson and all his craziness.

  85. ; ) says:

    I have traveled with more than 6 kids and something about the video and pictures creeped me out. It looked like the parents were happy and waving and the kids looked sad. It is funny how they can not be seen when they want to. The children are so cute though, I can’t help but feel bad for them.

  86. Sue says:

    Some of you folks are really mean and snotty! I can’t get over it. You HAVE to find something to complain and insult these people about. Can’t these people just get through the airport without some hidden agenda being considered. Man!

    I’ve really been anxious to see what Knox and Vivianne look like now – I hadn’t seen a picture since the famous cover shot on People. I think that they are just adorable! God bless them!

  87. MT says:

    The children look so sad, and the parents are thrilled to be photographed.

    That’s just disgusting.

    I feel sorry for this children.

    By the way- are come the nannies that raise the children and the personal assistants are not shown?

    Are they forced to fly commercial while Brangelina pollute the planet in a private jet?

  88. Anon says:

    Sue: I’ve really been anxious to see what Knox and Vivianne look like now – I hadn’t seen a picture since the famous cover shot on People. I think that they are just adorable! God bless them!
    ITA I was glad to see the babies too.
    I’m glad they had to go through the airport. There are a lot worse things happening in the world than Angie and Brad at the airport with their children for whatever ulterior motive. And the babies are just adorable.

  89. Aspen says:

    You know…

    I wish they’d stop working for a while and just settle back like Demi did. It would make me feel better, as a mom, to see that happen.

    That said, I love that they are ALWAYS with these kids. From all appearances, they’re doing fine. The kids weren’t scared in all that chaos at all…they seemed secure and happy.

    If we never saw the kids, we could know that they were always with the nannies. But we DO see them. All the time. To me, that means they’re with mom and dad a LOT. Your average mom in suburbia probably devotes less one-on-one time to her kids than these people seem to do…so I’m not sure where all the hate comes from.

    But I do wish they’d stop working until the kids are older. They don’t need the money.

  90. aleach says:

    there are plenty of celebs that have children that NEVER get photographed or attacked by the paps.
    why does this family parade their kids out like they are some side-show? there had to have been a way to get around the paps in the airport. i mean, really.
    they constantly say they “didnt get into this business to talk about personal lives” but here they are…showing off their brood and selling pictures to magazines.
    im just sayin…lots of “hollywood kids” arent in the spotlight. it can be done.

  91. janice says:

    The babies are very cute , as every babies are, but I feel bad for them as they are been used for PR.
    They hide the twins for 6 months, but one week after the Star magazine cover says “Where are the twins?” the all the sudden appear!
    What a convinient “coinsidence”!!!!
    They are a beautiful couple, but using they kids such way is not the way to go.

  92. krista says:

    I think some people’s hatred for Brad and Angelina has so warped their brains that they are no longer in touch with reality. So what–they are travelling with kids–everyone does it, it’s normal behavior. There’s no story here.

  93. Brooke says:

    Ummm…they are totally wearing the carriers wrong! The arm holes are there for reason. Parenting classes ASAP!

  94. becky reed says:


  95. Babu says:

    This is a joke, why having all these international kids? PR man, PR!

  96. Jackie says:

    I don’t understand people who think that this is a publicity stunt to get Oscar votes. Like Kathy Bates is sitting there with her ballot sheet not knowing who to vote for, but then she sees what beautiful kids Angelina has and that’s going to sway her vote? Do people really think that???

    Incidentally, it looks like Brad has Knox’s arms coming out from the top of his carrier also. I don’t have an issue with it. They’re still being safely held. I know from my kids, you do things the way that it works for you and the baby.

    As for the comment that they parade the kids like a sideshow – this is the first pics of the twins since they were born almost 6 months ago. They’re going through airports all the time and you can bet that the paparazzi would be after any chance that they could get to photograph them. Being caught once in 6 months is hardly parading them.

  97. caribassett says:

    Okay I watched that video, and thats definately abrasive, my cat fell off the printer ( poor Finnegan!). It must be alarming to say the least.

    The babies are very beautiful, they look curious, and are charming.

    And yes, for Petes sake would someone teach them how to use the baby bjorn properly? They should know how by now.

  98. brista says:

    I think it’s interesting that these photos came out right after gossip mags were carrying the “THE TWINS ARE SICK!!” just because they’ve never been seen out in public before.

  99. bwoz says:

    Ah, yes. Babies/kids as accessories….good on ya, Brangelina!

  100. fatty acid says:

    envy is a waste of time, so chill out! Celebs are just like normal one is u liked them once, hate them doesn’t stop arguing about this Brangelina thing ok.. PEACE

  101. L.S. says:

    I absolutely adore Brad, Angelina, and their beautiful children. They make a wonderful couple.I don’t know why so much nastiness is directed towards them by some on this, and other, websites. I don’t know if it’s because of the Brad and Jen thing. I liked Brad and Jen too, but they broke up 4 years ago! Brad and Angelina look happier than ever. And Jen is glowing and goreous at 40. They’ve all moved on. I think it’s time everyone else did too.

  102. Rosebudd says:

    Narita airport (Japan) is TOUGH, slow airport..As a single person w/ one little rolling bag, every month I had a tough time. They probably wear sunglasses indoors because of all the flasbulbs. Wldn’t be bad idea for children to hv. on. In the industry, you sometimes hv. contractual obligations for promoting Oscars. It’s a game that has been around forever. Good to see Ange wearing her baby. She always wore Z for a yr. or so. I didn’t see that w/ Shiloh and felt bad. She adopted Pax when Shi was baby & shld. hv. focused on her baby instead. Anyhoo, they hv. just learned to go w/ it & let kids be photographed. Operation deflect. Good plan. I wish them well & happiness.
