(Newser) – In a style befitting a couple of action-movie stars, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt outfoxed the tabloids by allowing a local newspaper to break the story of their twins’ birth, the AP reports. The daily Nice-Matin got a heads-up before the big event, the scoop that the delivery was  moved up “for the mother’s comfort,” and a post-delivery photo of Pitt.

"It is the only picture from the day. But we won’t sell it, out of respect for the family," the paper’s magazine editor said. "Nice-Matin has always chosen not to play the game of paparazzi towards the celebrities who have chosen to live in the region. We respect them, and they do likewise. We let them have a peaceful life."
