Congratulations! George Clooney and Amal welcome twins, Ella and Alexander

06 Jun 2017

The couple have become parents for the first time

A huge round of congrats are in order for actor George Clooney and his wife Amal after the pair welcomed their twin babies into the world.

International human-rights lawyer Amal gave birth to twins Ella and Alexander this week. New dad-of-two George released a slightly funny statement announcing the happy news.

George Clooney is a dad!

“This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine. George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

LOL. A source told People that George is going to be a brilliant dad...

“This is very good news. We’re very, very happy. George is going to be a great father of twins.”

Cuteness! We're super happy for the gorgeous couple and cannot wait for our first glimpse of Ella and Alexander.
