Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie twins could fetch $22m

The bidding war for the first pictures of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's twins could go for as much as $22 million dollars reports Keith Kelly in the New York Post.

Top bidders would probably be People Magazine and OK! The price, which some sources say has already topped $15 million, would be more than double than the price paid for the photos of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's twins.

Those photos went for around $7 million with People getting US rights, while OK! won European rights.

This time OK! owner Richard Desmond is reported to be determined to get exclusive rights. Some sources at the magazines say the double digit figures are not realistic.

But there is little doubt that first photos of the Brangelina infants will get the highest price ever in the escalating battle of the babies.
