Introducing Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline!

The first photos of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's twins debuted on the Web sites for British magazine Hello! and People on Sunday.

The shoot with the now three-week-old tots took place last weekend, New York Post columnist Keith Kelly reported Friday.

In a joint venture, People magazine purchased the North American rights to the photos while Hello! owns the worldwide rights.

Citing a "person involved in the negotiations," the Associated Press reported the publications shelled out $14 million for the photos - making them the most expensive celeb infant pictures ever.

The money from the photos snapped by Getty Images will go to a foundation created by Jolie and Pitt, the AP reported.

Jolie, 33, and Pitt, 44, forked over $8 million for their foundation in 2006, according to their federal tax filings. They supplied their joint foundation with over $4 million each. Half their contribution came from the sale of Shiloh's first photos

Knox weighed 5.03 pounds and Vivienne weighed 5 pounds.

Pitt cut the umbilical cord.

"He was perfectly calm, totally determined, very pleased to be at the birth of his children, very moved and very emotional," Jolie's obstetrician, Dr. Michel Sussmann, who delivered the babies via a double Cesarean section, revealed in a press conference.

The birth was far from melodramatic.

"Jolie and Pitt were always laughing and having a good time together, even during the birth operation," Sussmann told The Jewish Journal.

They are just 3 weeks old, but twins Knox Léon and Vivienne Marcheline are about to take the world by storm.

In an exclusive interview and photos, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie offer PEOPLE an intimate look at their growing family.

"It is chaos, but we are managing it and having a wonderful time," Jolie tells PEOPLE of daily life at the Château Miraval in Provence, France, where the couple's four older children – Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 2 – have been enjoying a summer of outdoor play (hide-and-seek is a favorite) on the château's sprawling grounds.

"Shiloh calls them her babies. She and Z pick out their clothes and help change and hold them. It's sweet — they are little mommies," Jolie tells the magazine, to which Pitt, 44, adds: "This is Mad's fourth/fifth time becoming an older bro. He's asking us when we can have more."

Jolie says she and Pitt were "in shock and could not stop laughing" when they learned they were having twins, and denied speculation that they had conceived the children through in-vitro fertilization.

"If they had been conceived through IVF, we would have been happy to discuss it," she says. "But we have been fortunate never to have had fertility problems."

As for the twins' personalities, Pitt says, "Viv is proving to resemble Ange in spirit, attitude and physicality. And Knox, a bit of me."

Adds Pitt: "[It's] still a cuckoo's nest."

The photos were published in an issue of People on newsstands Monday. The cover was posted Sunday on the magazine's Web site.
