Break out the champagne because George and Amal Clooney are expecting twins!
Rumors have been swirling this week ever since a friend close to the couple spilled the beans but now The Talk’s Julie Chen has confirmed the happy news. According to E!, Chen said on air:
“Congratulations are in order for George and Amal Clooney! The Talk has confirmed that the 55-year-old superstar and his highly accomplished 39-year-old attorney wife are expecting twins,” Chen said. “Now, what we did find out that no one else is reporting, is that the twins are due this June!”
PEOPLE has also confirmed the news, saying that Amal “has let everyone in both families know quietly … They’re all very happy.”
We don’t know about you, but we’ve always had a crush on these two. The longtime bachelor was famous for swearing off marriage after separating from first wife Talia Balsam in 1993. But that all changed when he met his match in the Amal, a brilliant attorney and activist who has spent her career focused on international law and human rights issues.
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 he 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.”
Something must be in the air in Hollywood because in the last couple of weeks, Pharrell revealed he welcomed triplets in early January and Beyonce and Jay-Z announced they were expecting twins, too!
Editor’s Note: George and Amal have not yet publicly confirmed the news of their pregnancy. Babble will update this post with any further developments.
