George Clooney Speaks Out About Amal’s Pregnancy For The First Time

It was confirmed over a week ago by sources close to the couple that Amal Clooney and hubby George are expecting twins, but the Hollywood actor has now spoke out himself about his wife’s pregnancy.

The 55-year old film star finally confirmed the news first hand in an interview on French TV show Recontres de Cinema.

The Ocean’s Eleven actor was in France over the weekend being recognised at The Caesar Awards and receiving their honorary award. He stopped amid his busy schedule to discuss his exciting news.

Talking to film journalist Lauren Weil, Clooney was clearly overjoyed with the pregnancy news and excited to become a dad for the first time.

We are really happy and really excited. It’s going to be an adventure. We’ve sort of embraced it all…with arms wide open.

The Oscar-winning actor went on to reveal just how supportive the duo’s close friends and family have been since they discovered they were expecting twins.

Recalling what happened when him and wife Amal told those closest to them, Clooney said,

It got really quiet. And they all just started making baby crying noises, and the whole table just busted up laughing.

Despite the majority of George’s close friends having kids who are now grown ups themselves, the Argo star doesn’t seem phased by having children at an older age.

The actor admitted he has been looking to other mature fathers for inspiration since he discovered Amal was pregnant. French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo had a child at the age of 79-years old, with Clooney saying he’s ‘feeling a little better about being 56’.

The A-lister’s mother, Nina Clooney, recently opened up about the sex of each twin, revealing that the Hollywood couple are expecting one boy and one girl.

Talking to Vogue, the excited grandmother-to-be said,

It will be one of each! Yes, a boy and a girl. That’s what I’ve been told. How marvellous! My husband and I are extremely excited.

It’s thought that the twins are due in June.
