In an effort to have as many kids as fast as they possibly can, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt used in vitro fertilization to conceive their newborn twins, Knox and Vivienne. US Weekly reports:
They conceived through in vitro fertilization,” a well-placed source within their camp tells Us. “They both desperately wanted more babies soon.” The chance of having fraternal twins at Angelina’s age (33) naturally is under 1 percent; with in vitro, the chances are 25 percent. Says Dr. Arthur Wisot of L.A.’s Reproductive Medical Group (who did not treat the couple), “We live in an era of reproductive freedom, so anybody can do anything they want within legal limits.” The actress chose the procedure (which can cost around $12,000 a pop) so “she wouldn’t have to deal with the stress of trying to get pregnant,” the source tells Us. “She could just knock it out.” Indeed, Jolie has spoken about her goal to do just that. “If we’re going to have 10 kids, we’d like to raise them while we’re young,” she told Elle U.K. last year. Brad Pitt turns 45 on December 18. A source adds: “They were too impatient.”
Hey, man, whatever. If I was Brad Pitt, as long as my semen actually made it anywhere near or inside Angelina Jolie, I’d be cool with it. If my semen ever landed on Angelina Jolie, I’m pretty sure I’d want a video montage like they show at weddings and a picture of my sperm throwing their graduation caps in the air.
