A rep for the actor confirmed that everyone is “healthy, happy and doing fine” after the births this morning.
George Clooney‘s wife Amal has given birth to twins.
The actor and his human rights lawyer wife welcomed their son Alexander Clooney and daughter Ella Clooney on Tuesday, June 6.
A rep for the couple told ET Online : “This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine.
The spokesperson then joked: “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”
It was clear last week that the twins’ births were imminent as George pulled out of attending the £850,000 Aurora Prize event he co-founded, saying he couldn’t leave Amal’s side in case she gave birth and he wasn’t there.
Skipping the awards, he said by video link: “If I came and my wife had twins while I was away I could never come home.”
It was George’s own mother who first revealed the couple’s twins would be a boy and a girl.
Speaking earlier this year, his mum Nina 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.”
And George is already ready for nappy duty, pointing out in a recent interview that he played a paediatrician for years on medical drama E.R. so is well aware of how to change a dirty nappy.
“Hang on for a minute! I played a paediatrician on ER so I know how to work on extra children,” the actor explained to E! News.
“If there are any accidents, I’m there. I’m the guy.”
George previously said the couple would not choose names for their twins until the births.
He said: “No we haven’t picked out any names and I’ll tell you why. Because I’ve had friends pick out names around their parents and then it becomes …
“Whatever name you pick they’re like, ‘Oh, I don’t like that. That guy’s a prime minister’ ‘Can’t name her Susan. You remember your Aunt Susan?'”
In March, George said that Amal was “doing really great” during pregnancy.
“She is doing really great. She is amazing. I don’t have anything to do. There is nothing I can do to help, but make tea and stuff,” he told Extra .
George added: “I know swaddling… I know what I’m in for.”
