Hollywood's most famous bachelor broke a lot of hearts a few years ago when he finally decided to settle down and tie the knot with, in fairness, the catch of the century - human rights lawyer Amal Clooney (formerly Alamuddin). Now, at 56, George is about to become a father for the first time as news was announced recently that Amal was expecting twins.
The couple have been keeping quiet about the news with the media and it was actually talk show host Julie Chen that announced it on her show on February 9th, saying: "Beyoncé is not the only superstar expecting twins. Congratulations are in order for George and Amal Clooney!" She then added that the babies were due in June.
George has finally given his thoughts on the news when speaking on French show Rencontres de Cinema: "It’s going to be an adventure. We’ve sort of embraced it all… with arms wide open."
The actor then said how he was feeling about becoming a dad later in life, and how he took inspiration from 89-year-old French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo, who had a child aged 70.
"I’m feeling a little better about being 56 by the time [they come]," he said.
George's mother Nina also expressed her excitement about the news last week, and confirmed the sex of the babies: "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."
While George's pal Matt Damon said recently of the news: "It wasn’t a question for many years – it was a total nonstarter. But once he met Amal everything changed.
"I wasn’t surprised when he told me. I’m extremely happy for them, but once he met her, I had a feeling that was in the cards."
The game changer.
