Jolie's Pride and Joy Gets Waxed

Angelina Jolie's baby Shiloh Nouvel was just born in May, but she'll soon be immortalized -- in wax.

The celebrity tyke has been chosen as the first infant ever to get the wax treatment by Madame Tussauds in New York, reports news sources. The waxen counterpart of "the world's most famous baby" will shine her exalted goodness on the general public beginning Wednesday, July 26.

The museum's tableau features Shiloh resting in a woven basket in a yellow "African-themed nursery" that also includes "jungle-themed curtains, a whimsical chandelier, a white changing table and giant stuffed animals."

In addition, "soft African lullabies will be played in the background," while figures of Pitt and Jolie look proudly on. And, in a decision sure to fuel sibling rivalry for years to come, the museum has omitted the other Jolie-Pitts, namely adopted, less genetically blessed siblings Maddox and Zahara.

Tourists recreating their own Namibian birth experience by posing for a "family photo" with the trio will be giving to charity. One dollar from the proceeds of each souvenir photo purchased will go to UNICEF, for which Jolie has been an ambassador for years.

Once again, at only two months, Shiloh is showing up her other celebrity infant cohorts when it comes to charity after first having her photo auctioned off to the highest bidder, People magazine, which benefitted children's causes in Africa.

So, what have you done lately, Suri Cruise?
