The Jolie-Pitt Twins Arrive!

Brad Pitt was at Angelina Jolie's side as she gave birth to a son and daughter Saturday at the Fondation Lenval hospital in Nice, France, PEOPLE has confirmed. "The babies are doing well. The operation went just perfectly," Dr. Michel Sussmann told PEOPLE Sunday. "Angelina is in very good spirits. Brad Pitt was at her side. He was there and all was well."

Sussmann confirmed the Nice-Matin newspaper report that Jolie gave birth to a boy, Knox Leon, and a girl, Vivienne Marcheline, by Cesarean section on Saturday night. Knox weighed 5.03 lbs, and Vivienne 5 lbs. The twins are the fifth and sixth children for Angelina, 33, and partner Brad Pitt, 44, who are already parents to Maddox, 6; Pax, 4; Zahara, 3; and Shiloh, 2.

"The mother and father are very, very happy," Sussmann told PEOPLE. The doctor told the Associated Press that the Cesarean was moved forward "for medical reasons" so that the babies could be born "in the best conditions." He also said Angelina is expected to stay in the hospital for a few days.

On July 1, Angelina checked in to the Fondation Lenval hospital to await the births. The family has been living in the south of France since this spring.

What do you think of the names Brad and Angie picked for the twins? I really like the name they picked for their daughter, but Knox? I really do not care for that one. Vivienne is much more girlie than the names of their two other daughters. Zahara has such a kick ass vibe and Shiloh is very tomboy like as well. That was a big surprise. The name Knox just doesn't seem like a great name to me. It sounds like the name of a location or a dog, not a kid. I understand that both of Knox's names are from Brad's family, but I really don't care for it.
