Happy first birthday to the Jolie-Pitt twins, Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline!

The youngest of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s brood were born one year ago today in France. “Having twins is something neither of us ever expected and I think that makes it all the more special for us both,” Angelina said at the time.

We’ve only spotted them a handful of times since, including their PEOPLE debut and an airport arrival in January. We hope to see more of Knox and Vivienne in the coming year!

Happy Birthday Knox & Vivienne! I’m sure they’ve grown so much and I can’t believe it’s already been a year since they came into the world🙂

Crystal on

No way the twins are ONE!!! I can’t believe a whole year has passed!! We haven’t seen much of them. Maybe now that they’re older we’ll get to see more of them! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!🙂

Debbie on

My favorite twins..
Happy Birthday..

Rayan on

Happy Birthday sweet babies!!!!!!

Mallory on

Wow, a year already. It seems like just yesterday the entire world was in a “When’s Angelina gonna give birth” frenzy. Oh, the old days.😉

Happy birthday to those beautiful babies! I hope to see more of this gorgeous family in the future!

Jennifer H on

Happy birthday Knox and Vivienne!!!

It was the same with Shiloh in her first year. I think it is easier to keep the little ones out of the spotlight when they’re little. I can’t wait to see how big they are now!!!!!🙂

Bree on

Aw happy birthday! Their so cute they look like dolls!

Jade on

Happy birthday! I remember the frenzy about their birth too. One year later and we’ve only seen them twice.I’m sure they’re adorable but I hope we won’t see them more next year. I hope the Jolie Pitts enjoy their privacy as much as they can.

sharon on

Happy Birthdayy!!
They are so beautiful.

Alicia on

Happy Birthday, little ones. We all saw pictures of your mommy Every Day of her pregnancy with you two! We were all very happy when she gave birth to you Sweet Munchkins(to say the least).

Mallory- I know what you mean!🙂 Happy birthday, cuties!🙂

Nika on

I simply CAN NOT BELIEVE the twins are 1 year old already! I hope they have a nice day and I can’t wait to see how they’ve grown!

Jennifer on

How is it possible that an entire year has passed since these precious angels came into the world?

Happy 1st Birthday Knox and Vivienne! Hope your day is wonderful!🙂

Bancie1031 on

I forgot that they were born the same day as my nephew … he turned a year old today as well!


I hope to see them more this up and coming year

Cyd on

Given how much we see their siblings, it puzzles me as to how little we’ve seen of these twins.

kai on

I’m also shocked, they’re one already??? oh my.

happy birthday!

actualsize on

Happy birthday Knox and Vivienne! I’m so curious to know what you both look like now at 12 months of age. I bet you’re both as cute as your big brothers and sisters! Major kudos to Brad and Angelina for keeping these little guys so safely cocooned in their family in the past year. I’m sure there have been lots of special memories made in that time. Happy birthday, little guys!

ElenaS on

Happy birthday Knox and Viv.

I hope we’ll see picture of them soon. Maybe even a picture from their birthday party. Hope they have great time with their siblings, relatives and friends

TracyG on

Holy Cow…a year already!?? Seems like yesterday they were born and the world was going nuts to try to see them!

I’m glad they’ve kept the family out of the spotlight since the twins were born. I’m also glad that they haven’t been hounded by the paps much either.

That said, I’m curious to see what the twins look like now!🙂

Happy 1st birthday Knox and Vivi!!

**wonder if they’ll adopt this year again?**

Dana on

I love this family! Can’t believe the twins are one year old, wow. They are just cuties, soooo adorable🙂

Miss on

The most beautiful boy/twins born to a celebrity couple. I can’t wait to see how they look now.

dolleybots on

OMG. one year old already?
Happy Birthday, sweet babies :DDD

Shirelle on

Happy Birthday Knox and Vivienne!

Jes on

Happy Birthday Vivienne and Knox.
Hope you have a special day with your parents and siblings and maybe grandma and grandpa.
So glad that Brad and Angie are able to keep the little ones out of the spotlight.

L on

I remember sitting at my computer a year ago waiting for CBB to post the pics, ahah how time flies!
Can you imagine 6 months later how gorgeous those 2 are from January!? Hopefully they will come out more now that their 1

Happy Birthday Cuties!

Amanda on

Happy Birthday Knox and Vivienne! May this milestone birthday with your family be extra special and signify much joy in the years to come.

I too am very glad that Brad and Angelina are able to keep their children out of the glaring spotlight that is always upon them. I think Brad and Angelina (but especially Brad) have lost patience with the paparazzi and their vile, stalkerish ways. It’s no coincidence that since the twins have been born, sightings of them and their older siblings have been few and far between. As much as I would like to see more of this family, I’m glad they are getting private time together and that their children, especially Zahara do not have to deal with paparazzi all the time.


Happy birthday Knox and Vivienne!!!

Mia on

Happy Birthday Knox and Viv! I also remember the crazy frenzy it was when 1. We found out it was true that Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie we’re expecting twins,and 2. How exciting it was to find out they had a Boy and a Girl!

Congrats to the whole Jolie-Pitt family. Hope it’s a fun day today! Maybe they’ll do blue and pink cupcakes again, like last year when the twins were born🙂

Sanna on

A bit surprising that one year later they only have been caught once in paps photos! Could not have predicted that.

Happy birthday beauties!

(LOVE- aJ ) on

Happy birthday Viv and Knox!
I would like to see new pics of them.

Chelsea on

Aww! Happy Birthday Knox and Viv! Even though I hate not seeing more of the Jolie-Pitt clan, seeing so little of them kinda makes it more worthwhile when we actually do get a glimpse of them!

I bet the twins look a lot different since we last saw them.

JMO on

Wow 1 years old already! And we’ve rarely seen them which is odd for the Jolie-Pitt pack!!! I can’t wait to see their little faces again!

Josie on

Happy Birthday Knox and Vivienne!!
I can’t believe I share my birthday with 2 celebrity babies!🙂

someday mom on

Happy Birthday to the Knox and Viv. May you live long and happy lives.

Thrifty Sisters Coupon Clipping Service on

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already been a yr since they were born. I wish we could see a new picture of them. Happy Birthday to Knox and Vivienne!!🙂

Lau on

No way, a year already?! Well, the happiest of birthdays for them!

Juliet on

Happy Birthday Knox and Vivienne! I can’t wait to see more pics of them.

ll65 on

Awww Happy Birthday to Knox & Vivienne!

gianna on

Wow can’t believe they are 1 already, we have barely seen them. I remember seeing zahara and maddox a lot as babies, but not too much of shiloh as a baby and defintley less of the twins. I’m sure they are just as cute as shiloh and they were adorable when little.

taegan on

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Knox and Vivienne.

Time seems to have gone so fast.

chrysanti on

WOW!! Time run so fast.. Seems they just were born yesterday..🙂
Happy Birthday Twins..

Shannon on


These 2 are absolutely precious. I am amazed that Brad and Angelina have managed to keep them so well-protected from the paps, but I still would like to see some new pics of them!

Mellissa on

happy birthday twinsies!

Terri on

I do wonder what they look like now, but at the same time I’m glad that Brad and Angelina have been able to keep the paparazzi at bay.

AJ on

No kidding! They are more than likely the worlds most beautiful children!
