Angelina Jolie's twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline are "so cute," her obstetrician, Dr. Michel Sussmann, told The Jewish Journal Tuesday.

"It was not an easy operation -- a second cesarean with twins is difficult -- but it went perfectly," he says of the cesarean he performed to deliver the two five-pound babies Saturday at the Fondation Lenval hospital in Nice, France.

Father Brad Pitt cut the umbilical cord.

"The delivery was very emotional and exceptional as Ms. Jolie is a superstar, but I think that it happened on Shabbat [Saturday] made it that much more moving," Sussmann said. "Jolie and Pitt were always laughing and having a good time together, even during the birth operation," the doctor added.

Sussmann told the Journal that while is he is the 33-year-old actress' doctor, that doesn't mean he wants to be her friend.

"We had an excellent rapport," he said. "She is so, so nice and never complained about anything. There are negative things sometimes written about her on the Internet, but don't believe them."
