UPDATE: Amal and George Clooney's family doubled on Tuesday morning when they welcomed twins Ella and Alexander Clooney into the world.
"Ella, Alexander, and Amal are all healthy, happy, and doing fine," George Clooney said in a statement earlier today. "George is sedated and should recover in a few days."
We're totally stoked for this little injustice-fighting family of four, and we can't wait to see how parenting life treats the couple!
Is there something awesome in the water? Amal Clooney is pregnant with twins! After months and months of rumors, we can finally rejoice in all that baby-news goodness! This year, the international human rights lawyer and her award-winning actor husband, George Clooney, will take on yet another rewarding role: they will become parents.
There hasn't been a personal confirmation from the couple (or a stunning Beyonce-style photoshoot, though we can dream), but Julie Chen announced the news on The Talk, saying she spoke personally with George and Amal and was allowed to reveal the news.
According to People Magazine , Amal and George are elated to be welcoming boy-girl twins into the world. The couple has kept the news quiet for a couple of months, reportedly only sharing the details with their immediate families and close friends.
The Clooneys tied the knot in 2014 in Italy in one of the most talked about celebrity weddings of all time. Mr. Clooney transformed before our eyes from "eternal bachelor" to husband—and now father! Mr. Clooney has openly talked about just how in love with Amal Alamuddin he is and has even said that she changed his life. Frankly, we hear him, because we are in love with the badass Amal, too.
"All I know is that it sort of changed everything in terms of what I thought my future—my personal future—was going to be. I've always been an optimist about the world. I wasn't always completely optimistic about how it was going to work out personally for me. But now I am," he has said, according to People.
As George and Amal Clooney await the arrivals of their sure to be total boss children, People reports they are staying out of the spotlight and trying to spend as much time together as possible—something that has always been important to them both. They spend time at their homes in Los Angeles, Italy, and England, but it's unclear where they will settle down once their babies arrive.
Amal Clooney is due in June. Let's make sure the Clooney twins become BFFs with Beyonce and Jay Z's twins.
