Amal and George Clooney have recently given birth to healthy twins- Ella and Alexander.
The couple’s spokesperson confirmed the news in a hilarious statement,“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.
“We are really happy and really excited. It’s going to be an adventure,” Amal Clooney said. “We’ve sort of embraced it all with arms wide open.”
Overwhelmed with the news, Amal’s mother Baria, said: “We are over the moon. It was a beautiful delivery. The babies are beautiful and are doing well.”
The couple had adopted a low profile during the pregnancy, keeping the news private for months. The actor’s close friend Matt Damon confirmed it in February this year.
The popular American actor and philanthropist has received three Golden Globe Awards for his work. Two of his films ’Ocean’s Eleven’ and ‘Three Kings’ have won the Oscars.
Despite the pregnancy, Amal Clooney continued her work as a Human Rights lawyer, addressing the United Nations in March. She urged the international community to investigate crimes committed by the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.
The Clooneys had tied the marital knot two-and-a-half years ago in Venice. They have been touted as one of the world’s biggest celebrity couples.
