Brangelina On Their Own. With Six Kids.

January 27, 2009

I have no idea why I find it necessary to defend the Brangelinas, but I do. Everyone always says having six kids wouldn't be so hard if you had a bazillion dollars and tons of nannies. I never see these guys surrounded by nannies, do you? Here they are having just landed in Japan. With ALL SIX KIDS. They seems to be managing them all on their own and the kids actually seem cooperative. More than I can say for my own two!

I guess it comes as no surprise that they have another beauty on their hands.

  1. I kind of think the same, except I have read that Brangelina has a rule that no nannies may be photographed with the kids ... bad for the image, you know.

    Here is the link ... I am not a huge fan of this blogger (Penelope Trunk) b/c she is all about how to get ahead at work. Not really my cup of tea. But it is an interesting read about "Mommy Porn," which is what she calls the Brangelina and their million kids thing.

  2. I do think they probably have a lot of help but I don't get why people have to bash celebs? Love the little matching hats on Brad and baby.

  3. seriously with their insanely beautiful babies. i cannot help but be fascinated by them too.

    but i think they might have enough kids now? like if she has another set of twins, it's going to start getting weird. fast.

  4. Have you ever tuned into to Jon and Kate Plus Eight? I love to watch an episode when I think I have my hands full. They are very candid about their challenges with eight kids! While I only have three I feel like I can relate. It gives me a little pick up. You know, someone's always got it rougher. (I must add it's not a whiney show. They DO a lot of stuff with their kids in tow.)

  5. I get the feeling they are hands on taking care of the kids and are fine parents but still...there was a whole nytimes article about how angelina is very capable of handling how her image comes across in the media and I agree that we don't see the nannies for a very specific reason. And I have a hard time being sympathetic for them. But still they are probably great parents with a lot of help.

  6. There's no real reason to bash them - I don't know them at all personally - but I am certain the nannies were there, just hiding in the back. I wonder why they want to appear like they can do it all themselves? It's odd, and also insulting to the nannies. Just my 2 cents.

  7. when brad was on oprah recently she asked him something like "how do you handle meals?" and his response made it clear that neither he nor angie have ever once cooked a meal. he said something like, "uh, we don't even try to do that." and I once read an interview with angelina at a hotel where she was staying to nurse a cold. must be nice to go to a hotel alone when you are feeling a little under the weather, and not deal with childcare. so, i do tink there is the image and there's the reality.

  8. i LOVE jon and kate plus eight!! i do not love brangelina... but that's more of the cheating/jennifer aniston thing than their kids. Their kids are beautiful, and i'm glad they can give them the life they have!

  9. See? You people love to hate the Brang. ;-) Why do I care? No idea. I'm sure they are both very image conscious. BUT. I can't imagine those paparazzi are going to always cooperate and wait for the nannies to duck and cover. I'm sure they do have nannies, it just seems like they do a lot of it themselves too. Like more than I would if I were them!

  10. Wait, did I miss something? Having a nanny IS a luxury, however it doesn't equate to incapable parenting. If having a nanny appear in the photo makes people think anything less of the parenting that Brangelina accomplish, that is sad. It is too bad that some people will judge Brad and Angie based on the fact that they have help, when they can clearly afford it.

  12. i remember seeing beautiful portraits of them in africa with their nanny. they seem pretty cool considering. i can't even imagine having 6 children.

  13. My parents had six children in ten years, so to me the size of the Brangelina brood is not abnormal. We didn't have a full-time nanny or anything like that--I don't know how my mother coped day-to-day!

    P.S. Brangelina SO have nannies and I agree with Anonymous in that I think that Brad and Ang should give credit where credit is due. But clearly they have a rep to protect, so it's all hush hush.
