BRAVE NEW BRANGIE: IN VITRO WONDER TWINS

The Pitt-Jolie wonder twins, Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon were conceived in vitro - that's test tube babies, kids.

Reportedly, Angelina, 33, chose the $12,000 procedure "so she wouldn't have to deal with the stress of trying to get pregnant." 

Stress?  Like trying again?

"If we're going to have 10 kids, we'd like to raise them while we're young," Angie said in an interview last year.

Statistically speaking, the odds of Jolie giving birth to fraternal twins naturally are  less than 1 percent but in vitro, it's 25 percent.

A Madison Avenue doctor told The ENQUIRER that despite conceiving naturally --the old fashioned way -- with Shiloh, there may have been issues with encroaching middle age for the partners.

"Like shooting blanks," the physician theorized. 

Brave new world, indeed.
