A person involved in the negotiations for pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's newborn twins says the rights have fetched $14 million. The person asked not to be named because he was not authorized to release the figure. People magazine scored the photos in a joint deal with the London-based Hello! magazine, and the two will split the bill.

People will feature Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon in an issue to hit newsstands Monday, spokeswoman Nancy Valentino said Friday.

The money will go to a foundation created by Pitt and Jolie that largely focuses on helping children around the world. The $14 million more than doubles the $6 million People paid to feature Jennifer Lopez and her newborn twins on a March cover, according to Forbes.
