They're Multiplying

So Brad and Angelina named the twins Knox and Vivienne.

For the record, I'm totally over these two. I think they're starting to look haggard (I'd still do either one of them, in a heartbeat) and the number of kids is getting a little crazy-ish, Duggar-style.

However, I totally love their taste in names. The only one I don't love is Zahara, and I'm sure it means something, it's not awful or anything. I LOVE the name Shiloh and Vivienne is gorgeous. Knox is pretty darn good for a celebrity baby name. I've always loved Maddox (the kid and the name) and I'm cool with Pax. Hot damn that's a lot of kids.

What's up with so many celebrities having twins lately? Particularly girl/boy twins? Don't get me wrong, I'm as glad as anyone that there is a miniature Brad Pitt in our presence, but girl/boy celebrity twins seem to be the next "in" thing and I'm just wondering how they're all doing it.

It's a little bit freaky, that's all.

I can't hear the name Knox without thinking of Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss. Maybe that's where they got it.

I think the celebrity twins thing can be traced to a couple of things: I think there's just a lot of interest in celebrity babies recently, so you hear more about all the babies, including twins. Celebs also seem to just be having a lot more kids (meaning more twins and more single kids), lately. A lot of the celebrity babies are born to moms who aren't married yet, so maybe this has to do with the fact society is pretty accepting now of having a kid before marriage. Finally, I think the older celebrities or the ones who have trouble conceiving may use fertility treatments, which increase the likelihood of twins.

I thought Shiloh was a dogs name.

I could tolerate the both of them until Angelina had to start talking public about how great pregnant sex is.

It just seems kindof mean to Jennifer. Divorce or no divorce. Even if she is over it (doubt it)... it still has to bite. It's just wrong. Shut the hell up already. Your faces every damn where has got to be enough.

I've never been an Angelina fan. Everyone thinks she's so gorgeous, and I just don't get it. What's going on with her lips? Can they get any bigger? I don't know... ever since I saw her making out with her brother and wearing Billy Bob's blood in a vial around her neck... she just doesn't do it for it for me.

Bit don't get me wrong, I wouldn't kick Brad out of bed for eating crackers! Yummy!

I think they have crossed over into Duggarland, too. Obviously the number of kids to have is a decision that belongs solely to the parents but sheesh...

And you know that Knox is going to end up looking more like James "Crazyeyes" Haven.

I have to agree...it does seem rather strange that suddenly celebs are having twins and one of each at that. AJ is only what 33? Usually you have a better chance of conceiving twins after the age of 35 or so I've been told. And I have yet to hear about the celebs coming out and saying they've done fertility, which should be a private matter but half of them get followed around so much that why hasn't that come out?

They remind me of those crazy old ladies that keep collecting cats until there are so many they can't properly care for them. If they have to hire a live-in nanny to take care of their kids, maybe it's time to shut down the ol' uterus.
