"Brad Pitt and Angelina asked the gynaecologist to contact the local press. They wanted a local newspaper to get the news first for their settlement in the region. The first contact was the doctor, he was the one who called our journalist Jean Francois Roubaud."

News of the birth of twins to Hollywood actors, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, has dominated headlines around the world including that of Nice Matin, the hometown daily in the Riviera city in the south of France, which broke the story that the couple's babies had been born.
Jolie gave birth to a boy, Knox Leon, and a girl, Vivienne Marcheline, by Caesarian section on Saturday night at the Lenval hospital in Nice.
The twins' arrival has spurred a rash of speculation about the price of the first 'official' snaps.
Nice Matin put the worth of such pictures at more than 11 (m) million US dollars.
The editor of Nice Matin's magazine section, Christophe Caietti, said on Monday that it was Jolie's doctor who first contacted the newspaper's journalist Jean Francois Roubaud to break the news of the twins' birth.
Caietti said the Hollywood couple gave Nice Matin the story because the newspaper "has always chosen not to play Paparazzi towards the celebrities who have chosen to live in the region."
"We respect them, and so do they (respect us). We let them have a peaceful life. This is why I think Brad and Angelina have chosen to make this 'gift' to Nice Matin," Caietti said.
The Hollywood actors already have four children: Maddox aged six; Pax aged four; Zahara aged three; and Shiloh, two.
The obstetrician who delivered the twins, Dr. Michel Sussmann, said on Sunday that the boy weighed 2.28 kilograms (5.02 pounds) and the girl 2.27 kilograms (5 pounds).
The couple are said to be doing "marvellously well" but no pictures have yet emerged of the new additions to their family.
Jolie is expected to stay in the hospital for a few more days.
Tourists visiting Nice wished them all well and congratulated the couple on their good news.
James from Oxford, England said, "It's wonderful. We've got a small son ourselves, so it's a great thing to have and it's a wonderful experience for them."
Locals from Nice were also glad to hear the news.
Corrine, a French national who will soon give birth in the same hospital as Jolie said "it is great that she gave birth here in Nice."
Though the lenses of the world's paparazzi had been trained on maternity wards across the French Riviera, Jolie managed to slip unobserved into the clinic, reportedly arriving by helicopter on the hospital's rooftop helipad.
The first pictures of the twins are expected to be the most expensive showbiz photos of the year.
