Question: Do Brad and Angelina's Twins, Knox and Vivienne, Have Down Syndrome?
Answer:

May 2010

Rumors have been circulating on the internet that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's twins, Knox and Vivienne, born in July 2008, could have Down Syndrome. There is a feature article in the National Enquirer highlighting the fact that the rumors mills are suggesting that there may be some serious health issues for Brad and Angelina's famous twins.

"Children with the Down syndrome genetic disorder are detected by developmental delays -- physical characteristics, include rounded face, flattened profiles and upward slanted eyes. And it's those descriptions that have sparked the false online speculation," according to the National Enquirer.

Could there actually be any truth to this latest round of gossip surrounding the Jolie-Pitt twins?
