George & Amal Clooney On Self-Imposed Travel Ban Throughout Pregnancy
A-list actor George Clooney and his pregnant wife Amal are taking no risks when it comes to the safety of their unborn twins.
With the adorable couple set to become parents for the first time in June this year, they have both made a pact to be careful when it comes to travelling to potentially dangerous countries.
The 55-year old actor, who will be 56 by the time the twins are born, recently spoke out to Paris Match Magazine about the couple’s self-imposed travel ban during the pregnancy.
Clooney revealed in the interview,
We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger. I won’t go to South Sudan anymore or the Congo; Amal will no longer go to Iraq, and she’ll avoid places where she knows she isn’t welcome.
Amal’s very high pressured job as a human rights attorney sees her travelling to some extremely dangerous places to meet with clients.
One of her most recent responsibilities saw her take on one of the world’s most threatening terrorist groups, ISIS, in support of Nadia Murad who was a human trafficking victim.
Despite the high risk involved in the job, Amal has always gone through with her responsibilities.
Yet the-mom-to be is taking a step back to ensure the upmost safety for her unborn children.
The husband and wife will avoid any uneccesary and risky travel plans during Amal’s pregnancy, and even when the twins – set to be a boy and a girl – are born.
They still haven’t decided where to settle down and raise their kids, but Clooney admitted they aren’t short of options.
We have the chance to live between three countries: Italy, America and England. But as soon as the children go to school, it’ll be necessary to choose where to settle. In the meantime, we will continue to move according to our respective schedules.
He also revealed just how close-knit George and Amal are as a couple, saying, ‘people think we are never together, but we have not been separated for more than a week.’
