New parents Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have donated $300,000 to help impoverished African children - to mark the birth of their daughter.
The child was born the night of Saturday, May 27 in the African country Namibia where the Angelina and Brad Pitt - who was present at the birth - have spent the last two months living with their two adopted children, Maddox, 4 and 16 month-old Zahara.
Pitt, like many new dads, was offered the chance to cut the cord - the
lifeline which joins mother and baby - by medical staff and reportedly
jumped at the chance.
The couple's obstetrician, Jason Rothbart, who travelled to the Southern
African country from the US to be at the birth, revealed Brad carried out
the impromptu procedure and has also revealed the baby's weight.
He said: "The baby was a healthy 7lb. Brad was with Angelina the entire time
and cut the umbilical cord. The surgery and birth went flawlessly."
