Angelina and Brad have made traveling with their six children – including 3-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne – look easy! But Angelina admitted that it can be hard sometimes.
“After the flight from Europe,” Angelina told the German edition of Vanity Fair, “we were all suffering a bit from jetlag. Although we went to bed early, [the kids] were up at 4:30 a.m. goofing around.”
After moving their family from a chateau in the south of France to a palace in a park in Berlin, the family landed in New York last week for the premiere of her movie Changeling – then headed back to France on Wednesday.
Angelina, 33, admitted to having a very supportive helper: “Brad took care of things. He just said, ‘Go back to sleep, you have to work tomorrow,’ and then went to the living room with the kids. He’s an amazing father: totally devoted.”
Angelina called caring for twins a challenge. “We’re exhausted a lot, because it’s twice as hard with two babies than with one,” she shared. “But it’s twice as much fun, too.”
That means watching them interact. “When you look at them, it’s like they were made for each other,” she explained. “They smile at each other, sniff each other, touch each other. It’s just beautiful.”
Even at their tender ages, they are each displaying distinct temperaments. “They’re totally sweet. They already have completely different personalities. Knox is more the quiet one, very relaxed, while Viv is a little more aggressive and loud,” she said.
On another note, Us magazine is reporting that after giving birth to twins, Angelina had a difficult time putting the breaks on the high-calorie pizzas, Hot Pockets, french fries and ice cream she consumed during her pregnancy.
Her snacking got so bad that a source close to Angelina’s French Ob-Gyn, Michel Sussman, told Us magazine that he instructed her to eat more nutritiously. (She said junk food is “their family’s weakness” and even joked about Brad Pitt having a pregnant belly, said the source.)
Reportedly Angelina did not shed an estimated 50 pounds by working out. The new issue Us magazine reveals what Angelina eats for breakfast, lunch and dinner; the food shipments she receives from a department store in Berlin and how her new diet has gotten her entire family (including Brad!) to eat healthier.
Hmmm….I can’t wait to check that out…but I suspect that she is just naturally slim!
