Brangelina Brood: And Babies Make Six

Over the weekend, Angelina Jolie gave birth to the latest additions to the already too-big-for-a-booth brood they haul around the world. On Sunday, the mega-star -- currently bending bullets in "Wanted" -- apparently laughed and talked (c'est rien!) as fraternal boy-girl twins were delivered via c-section in Nice. Papa Brad Pitt was on hand to cut the umbilical cord, though rumor has it Pitt barred Jolie's kissable brother James Haven from the delivery room.

Despite our hard work compiling a list of possible names for the newborns, Brad and Angie settled on Vivienne Marcheline (the middle name a likely tribute to Jolie's mom, Marcheline Bertrand, who died in 2007) for their new daughter and Knox Leon (possibly a tribute to Pitt's favorite gelatin and "Airplane"?) for their son.

The inevitable bidding war for the first pix of babies Viv and Knox is already well under way, with the current price rumored to be around $11 million, though it has been predicted that the photos could net double that amount.

A few years back, Brangelina set a record when People paid $4.1 million for the first pix of baby Shiloh. But prices have risen steeply in the celeb baby pic game. Last week Matthew McConaughey sold the first pix of baby Levi to OK! Magazine for $3 million. And even celeb-sis Jamie Lynn Spears (or her mom) cashed in on the trend, making $1 million on the first pix of little Maddie Briann.
