George Clooney is going to be a dad!
There have been rumours for months that George, 55, and Amal, 39, are expecting twins and Julie Chen finally confirmed the news today (February 9) on The Talk. The host revealed she had personally confirmed the news with the couple and according to TMZ, they’re having a boy and a girl. How sweet.
George and Amal have not confirmed the news yet, but it’s likely they just want to keep this exciting news to themselves. Sorry guys, but the world is just so happy for you.
The Clooney twins will make their arrival in June. And you can bet they are going to be gorgeous. And probably change the world just like Mom and Dad.
In a new interview, Matt Damon revealed that his good friend told him the big news last fall, but apparently George broke the news a little too soon.
“I almost started crying. I was so happy for him. And I was like, ‘How far along is she?’ and he goes, ‘eight weeks,'” Matt told Entertainment Tonight. “‘Are you out of your mind?! Don’t tell anybody else! Don’t you know the 12-week rule?'”
In George’s defence, he’s never done this before! Matt told his friend to “just shut up, man” until Amal was past the first trimester. Thankfully, all is fine and Amal is well into her second trimester.
Matt also had a bit of not so helpful advice for his pal.
“I’ve never had twins. He has it coming. I had them one at a time you know and that was plenty,” Matt says.
I don’t know about you, but I am over the moon excited. George, the silver fox, is about to be a dad! In 2015, Charlie Rose asked George if he ever thought about having kids and the actor revealed it wasn’t something on his radar.
“I haven’t really,” he said. “I’ve thought about it I suppose, but I haven’t really—it hasn’t been high on my list.”
Well, I guess it’s high on his list now. Here are just a few things that we think should add to your to-do list, George: pick a nursery theme for each of your homes (woodland themes are big this year), babyproof all your awards because those Oscars are definitely a hazard and start enjoying the pregnancy perks for dads.
Now what do you think they will name the twins? I expect they will choose family names. Maybe Nina or Nick after George’s parents. Or Talia after Amal’s sister who she is quite close to.
There must be something in the water in Hollywood because Beyonce announced she was expecting twins last week. Get ready for some cuuuuute celebrity babies in 2017!
