Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt used IVF to conceive twins?

Filed under: Celeb Parents, Rumors

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have never made it a secret that they want to have a large family. But what may come as a surprise is their lack of patience in creating that family. US magazine is reporting that Angie and Brad used IVF to conceive their twins, not because of fertility issues, because they were impatient with waiting for it to happen naturally.

An "unnamed source" tells US that Angelina chose IVF so "she wouldn't have to deal with the stress of becoming pregnant." She may have more than a little trouble finding women to sympathize with the stress of "trying to get pregnant" with Mr. Pitt. In fact, she might find a volunteer or two to pinch hit for her!

All kidding aside, trying to conceive can be stressful, but IVF is definitely no walk in the park. Not only are there risks associated with the procedure, there is no guarantee of success. If this rumor is true, either the Jolie-Pitts like things to happen on a time frame that they control, or they were just very, very anxious to become parents again. Angelina told Elle U.K. last year that they wanted to raise their children while they're still young. Though Angelina is only 33, Brad will turn 45 next year.

If you had the Jolie-Pitts unlimited income, would you have considered IVF to control the timing of your pregnancies?
