Hollywood star, George Clooney has become a first-time father – after wife, Amal gave birth to twins today, June 6.
The human rights lawyer welcomed her babies, named Ella and Alexander into the world this morning, both of whom are “healthy, happy and doing fine”, according to the couple.
A spokesman for the couple said: “This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine.”
56-year-old George and 39-year-old Amal got married at a star-studded ceremony in Venice in 2014, just five months after the Ocean’s Eleven star popped the question.
The two have been married for just about two and a half years.
Amal first sparked pregnancy rumours when spotted at Barcelona airport showing what looked like a sizeable baby bump while on holiday.
She’d also been spotted wearing baggy clothes, including at the screening for Netflix documentary The White Helmets, hiding the early signs of a baby bump.
In May 2015, Amal remained coy at the prospect at herself and George becoming parents.
She said: “I’ve thought about it I suppose, but I haven’t really – it hasn’t been high on my list, uh, I’ve been asked a lot lately because I’ve gotten married and I’m doing a movie with kids in it. You should see how creative the way they ask me.”
