Amal & George Clooney Reveal The Classic Names They’ve Picked For Their Twins
The human rights lawyer and A-list actor welcomed their first children on Tuesday morning.
The Clooneys have just expanded from a family of two to a family of four.
Lebanon-born international human rights lawyer Amal gave birth to twins on Tuesday morning, with mother and babies both “doing fine” according to a statement.
The couple welcomed the newborns – one boy, one girl – in London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, and have already unveiled their rather classic names.
The monikers they’ve plumped for? Alexander and Ella.
“This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives,” a spokesperson for the Ocean’s 11 actor said in a statement.
“Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine.”
The statement also made a small quip about the first-time dad, adding: “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”
The couple, who wed in 2014 in Venice, are typically private about their personal lives, though George did open up about Amal’s pregnancy earlier this year.
“It’s exciting and we’re really happy and really excited,” the 56-year-old told French TV show Rencontres de Cinema. “It’s going to be an adventure. We’ve sort of embraced it all… with arms wide open.”
George and passionate activist Amal met in 2013 before tying the knot in a star-studded ceremony in Italy the following year.
The actor has previously spoken about how meeting his accomplished wife changed his life.
“All I know is that it sort of changed everything in terms of what I thought my future – my future personal future – was going to be,” he told People in 2015. “I’ve always been an optimist about the world.
“I wasn’t always completely optimistic about how it was going to work out personally for me. But now I am.”
