...Just in case you haven't heard. The world's seemingly most anticipated twins have arrived. Brad and Angelina are the new parents of a boy named Knox Leon and a girl called Vivienne Marcheline. Although barely days old, a magazine already reportedly coughed up $11 million dollars (the amount could exceed $15 million) for the first "official" photo of the twins. A crazy, ridiculous sum, agreed! ...One redeeming reality to this insanity for celebrity baby pics is the eco-conscious couple are donating all of the money to charity. ...Hopefully some of the cash will go to environmental causes or towards Brad's passion for building green communities.
