Amal & George Clooney Reveal They Are Expecting Twins

So far 2017 is looking hopeful for loved-up celebrity couples, as another famous duo have announced their pregnancy news.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z aren’t the only husband and wife adding to their family by two, as it’s been revealed that Oscar-winning actor George Clooney and his wife Amal have baby twins on the way.

US chat show The Talk was the first source to reveal the exciting news about one of Hollywood’s leading couples.

Host Julie Chen confirmed there will be two new additions to the Clooney family during Thursday’s show, saying,

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.

Now, what we did find out that no one else is reporting, is that the twins are due this June!

Amal, who is a successful barrister at Doughty Street Chambers, and her famous husband have yet to confirm the news themselves.

However a close family friend has also spoken out about the pregnancy on Wednesday, February 10. Talking to AFP they said, ‘[Amal’s] pregnant with twins’, affirming the exciting baby news is indeed true.

The couple’s most recent public appearance was at the exclusive screening of Netflix documentary show The White Helmets in London on January 10 – hosted by The Clooney Foundation for Justice.

But it seems George’s 39-year old wife managed to cover up her growing baby bump very well, with no one having a clue until now that the pair were expecting.

The Clooney’s tied the knot in a luxurious wedding in Venice over a long weekend in 2014, with their close family, friends and other famous stars by their side.

Having been married for three years now, George and Amal have both been career-driven and extremely busy during most of their marriage. It now seems like this is the right time for them to settle down and start a family.

The Golden Globe award winner opened up in 2015 about his views on having children.

Talking to Charlie Rose on the CBS This Morning show, Clooney explained,

‘I mean I’ve thought about it… I’ve been asked about it a lot lately because I’ve gotten married and I’m doing a movie with kids in it.’

He also went on to explain just how important family life is to him. ‘I’m really close to my mom too. I’m really close to my family.’
