George and Amal Clooney have reason to celebrate because they have just welcomed two new additions to their family!
According to PEOPLE, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney gave birth to a healthy baby boy and girl early this morning. The twins, named Ella and Alexander, are doing well — and so is their mama.
As for George? Well, let’s just say the actor and first-time-dad’s sense of humor is still intact. His rep told PEOPLE that “George is sedated and will recover in a few days.” We can relate, George.
It’s been a long journey for the couple, who first opened up about their growing family in February saying, “We are really happy and really excited, it’s going to be an adventure.”
The two began dating in 2013 and married one year later on Sept. 27, 2014 in Venice, Italy, surrounded by 100 of their closest family and friends. Though George once said that he never planned to have children, it seems love (and the right woman) has made him see things differently on that front, too.
“I think it’s the most responsible thing you can do, to have kids,” Clooney told PEOPLE in 2006. “I think it’s the biggest responsibility you’ll have, and it’s not something to be taken lightly. I don’t have that thing in me that says, ‘must do it’. I don’t see myself ever having kids. But everything in my life has changed over periods of time … and the world does change.”
And change it has.
While twins sure make things interesting, George and Amal are in good company in Hollywood. Pharrell Williams welcomed triplets earlier this year and Beyonce is currently pregnant with twins as well.
Congratulations on your new little ones, George and Amal! Life is about to become a whole lot more exciting.
